- 40/40 Church Planter
I did not receive my call to missions early on in life, but during my time at Trevecca Nazarene University. My sophomore year is when God called me on my first 2 week missions trip to Peru with Extreme. That experience for me was God's first introduction to what being a missionary was all about. Then fast forward to junior year, God sent me on another 2 week trip to Swaziland, Africa. During that trip is when God set in my heart a burden for lost people, and he said to me, "Alyssa, I am sending you. Will you go?" And so with hesitancy, I told God i'd go wherever he wanted me. After graduating, God took it up a notch and sent me on a 40 day experience to Ecuador with extreme. That is where I fell in love with Extreme, and not only was my call to missions affirmed, but God was specifically calling me to be a 40/40 missionary. So, long story short, I was put on a team to Anapolis, Brazil and I am excited to see how God will use me and what he will accomplish there!
