|Hi Family and Friends, |
I have begun a new mission in Guatemala! I am excited to see what God has for the next 2 years! I was asked to re-write my personal mission statement for this new beginning! I recited it at my Re-Commissioning Prayer Service, but I also wanted to share it with you, my supporters.
I, Erin, desire to service God and the people of Guatemala for 2 years.
The beliefs and desires of my heart that motivate me to oversea mission are
To answer God's call by embracing my weaknesses and brokenness, realizing that God can use them in ways I could never have imagined to make me stronger and more equipped to serve
To continue to find myself, as I lose myself in service to others, which allows me to become the best version of myself.
The kind of person I want to be is
A humble servant, who strives to be fully present to each person I encounter and listen more than speak
Be a wounded healer, who uses my suffering to be a light to other suffering souls.
A person who empowers those with whom Im serving alongside, giving them the space to share their own stories.
I am called by God to
Take this leap of faith and plunge into the unknown waters, knowing I will come out on the other side a completely new person.
Open wide the doors of my heart and share it with this broken world by loving through radical hospitality and accompaniment and to
Find Christ in all those I will encounter on this journey.
In order to remain faithful to this commitment:
I need to trust in God's plan for me, by taking a posture of humility and contemplation. I will also need the continued support and prayers of the FMS community and all of my family and friends back home, who have accompanied me on this difficult, but life changing journey.
I pray for courage and strength to not be afraid, but to trust God will be with me wherever I go. I also pray for confidence in myself to use my unique voice and gifts God has given me to share.
Thank you for the overwhelming amount of support towards my call to overseas mission. Your prayers and words of encouragement mean so much to me. Take care and know you are in my prayers as well.
