I am ever increasingly in awe of the direction in which God has taken me. Looking back over the past years that I have been with Extreme, I see my story is a series of connections. I don’t even think some of the best novelists could have come up with what God has! From a seemingly random college choice of going to Mount Vernon Nazarene University, to graduating with a degree in Spanish… most of these choices, from my perspective, were random! But now, I see how wildly in love God is with me and how insistent He is that I walk near Him.
My work with Extreme started in Peru, where I served as a 40/40 Church Planter in Puno. It was the hardest thing I had done in my life at the time, and it was pivotal to my spiritual awakening. After 40/40, I served for a year in South America working in mobilization to recruit South Americans for Extreme. Toward the end of that year, I began to feel God tug on my heart to go to the U.S. I knew I had to continue working with Extreme, but I didn’t know how. When I told the higher-ups, they offered me a position to do marketing and design. I was nervous about taking it on, because I hardly had any experience to speak of, but so many people were speaking into me telling me it’d be the perfect fit. And just like every other plan that God has had for me, it was perfect!
There have been a lot of life-changing experiences that I’ve had even since then! I moved to Boise, Idaho to work out of Extreme’s main office, I attended the United Pursuit School of Worship in California, and I’ve been taking classes about spiritual giftings!
Something that I have been learning about this job is that it’s basically a worship leading position. I have the privilege of having lots of contact with young adult missionaries on the ground and then get to share their stories. These are not even just “stories” but they are “gospels” in the truest sense of the word, in that they are good news! I get to share the good news of what is happening on the mission field, and then invite others to praise the Lord with us for the might work of his hand!!!
