Provide a Way, Lord
Watching and sending are two ways of serving Christ. And then there are times when being the supportive hands and feet become a God-guided reality. Where there is a calling, God will provide a way.
Angeline Chichay’s Story
Always involved in the mission-mindedness of serving, I could no longer bear just watching and sending. I felt a strong desire to become a more active, hands-on participant to global missional impact. After months of serious searching, God literally helped me find the MissionNext website as I did some Google searches one evening after Christmas dinner.
After filling out a service profile, I took a short-term mission trip I found through the website. That trip reinforced the truth that “with God all things are possible.” My heart’s passion was validated, and my desire grew to be His hands and feet in missions somewhere.
What’s Next, Lord?
Returning from the short-term trip, I chose to start down the path to become a Journey Guide with MissionNext. Every step of the way, what could have been a challenge became a possibility.
Continuing to serve on my church’s leadership team and in its Caring, Worship, and Visual Arts ministries, I recently began a new role to coach fellow missionaries as they seek God’s will. My hands help others’ feet walk the path toward their God-given mission.
As I speak to those God is motivating to step out, stretch, and take new journeys, I am more and more convicted of God’s view of the world–that He needs our hands and feet to reach and help people.
In my opinion, MissionNext is one of the most understanding, flexible and supportive agencies to work with! I love the reach this organization has around the world, and the different types of missions made possible through our partners. Facilitating God’s calling is a vital tool in His work.
