I am Scared...

Everyone thinks that bravery is the absence of fear, that people who have done great things weren't scared...That they somehow knew what they would do, say or be in a moment that would define the rest of their life, but I don't think anything could be farther from the truth. It takes courage to live out the truth....So what's my truth?

The truth is I want to be a missionary. I have wanted to since the day I quit my job in 2009 to move to Redding, CA to attend Bible school. Since the time, I was 19 years old and boarded a bus to travel to New York City alone for the first time, since the day I got on a plane and headed to the Republic of Georgia to become an English teacher. There have been so many moments in my life proving how I was created for this moment. There is something in me that loves a good mystery because God often wraps himself in parables and in mystery and invites us to discover Him.

But my mission field isn't some rugged impoverished landscape...It's one of the most amazing and beautiful cities in the world. The beautiful city of Paris, known for its beauty and secularism. It's teaching the beautiful Parisians to trust that God can do more for them than they could ever imagine and of His love that is distinct from religious performance.
