I have a church background, yet all throughout high school and some of college, I dove deeper and deeper into partying as I sought other's approval. During a training at Summer Beach Project in 2015, the gospel all of a sudden made sense to me, and I realized that all of the emptiness and loneliness I'd been grappling with was there because I didn't have a personal relationship with Christ. Since that summer, God has been growing me and allowing me to learn that sharing the gospel is for everyone to do, not just those who are particularly gifted in it. I now long for the opportunity to share the gospel with people, and I believe that God has opened up this door as a chance to serve him and send His name to the nations. New Zealand desperately needs laborers to share the hope of Christ with its people, and I am so willing and ready to go. Thank you for sending me!
