The Calling…How the Journey Began

When I was quite young, I can’t remember my exact age, I heard an almost audible voice saying to me, “I want you to be a missionary to foreign lands.”

I was appalled, I didn’t want to be a missionary, and I didn’t want to leave home. So I said that I wouldn’t be a missionary, I would do everything else, except be a missionary.

Well a little bit later I heard the voice once again say, “You will be a missionary!” Again I resisted and again He came to me, finally I answered that I would go. Such peace entered my heart! I didn’t know what it all entailed, but all of a sudden, the desire came over me that I wanted to go!

So, for many years I knew what I was going to be when I grew up.

Finally I turned 17 and time passed until it came to the summer of 2012; I knew that this was the year that I must send in an application to the missionary field. I was excited, and time seemed to fly by!

The month of August came, nothing exciting about that, except for what happened in the month of August. My church had a visiting pastor from TN, come and do a series of talks. We only made it to the Saturday and Saturday afternoon meetings (since we lived so far away.) Well after the afternoon meeting I felt impressed to go and ask him to have a dedication prayer for me.

So I went up to him and told him that the Lord was leading me to be a missionary, and I told him at the time that I was thinking about going to the Philippines to do missionary work, even though I really didn’t want to go there, but I was willing to go wherever the Lord was leading. Well, he told me that he knew of a ministry that needed missionaries in New Zealand and that maybe I should go through there first.

Now I was really excited! You see I have always had a love for Australia and places with accents, and now the Lord was letting me go to a place that is close to Australia! God is so good!!!

Well I contacted the pastor and he contacted the other pastor and now I’m in the process of getting it all settled.

I will be leaving in April or May of 2013, hopefully April :).

Please pray for me as I am doing what the Lord has called me to do! Also if you feel impressed, I would greatly appreciate any donations that you can give. They will be used to help spread the gospel in New Zealand.

I will keep you all posted about what is happening.

I will be living in North NZ, about 2 hours away from Auckland…

I want to go wherever my Saviour leads me, and want to do what He tells me. I am serving the Lord wherever He calls me to go. I laugh and smile very easily, and love to meet new people! The Lord has given me the talent of singing, and playing the flute. I love to play songs which glorify my Savior. A few of my other favorite things I like to do is; reading the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy, cooking, knitting, and I love to witness and share about Jesus! My character is moldable for His hands! If I don't get to meet you here on this earth, meet me in the heavenly kingdom!

John 15:6 - Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. *~Kaila~*
