Saying “Yes!” To God

By medsenddev / April 7, 2016 /

In 2011, God began to speak to me about leaving behind what I knew. I was comfortable as a registered nurse in New York and wasn’t planning on going anywhere. But God made it clear He had a calling on my life and it was outside of New York. I didn’t know many details, but I decided at that moment that I would say “Yes!” to God. I prayed, “God please prepare my heart so I will know it when that time comes and follow You wherever You lead.”

Jesus Paid It All

By medsenddev / March 24, 2016 /

As MedSend’s Grant Applicant and Recipient Liaison, I attend the MedSend board meetings, and it is often that by the time I leave, I feel like I have been on a spiritual retreat. Last October’s board meeting was no different. During the meeting this question was posed by one of the board members during his morning devotional: “Who are you Jesus that the slaughter of the innocent was worth it?” That question hit me like a ton of bricks, and is still resonating in my mind.

By medsenddev / March 1, 2016 /

“One hundred percent of my patients will die! And so will yours!” How’s that for a motivational speech to a room full of medical and nursing students? New medical students are the best. They’ve successfully maneuvered through intense testing and intimidating medical school applications. There’s a special white coat ceremony that sets them apart in this elite world of clinical healthcare providers, and they arrive ready to conquer the world of death and disease! Unfortunately, their stats are terrible!

Heart of the Matter

By medsendceo / February 9, 2016 /

As an amazing benefit of working for MedSend for the last eight years, I have an increasing ability to perceive the world with new eyes – and even a new heart. One reason is that I know more about issues that affect cross-cultural healthcare workers, Christians and people in need around the world. These Christ-followers have put their faith to the test, foregoing comfortable lifestyles to serve in difficult, and often dangerous, circumstances. I have learned from what they have to say and my own faith has been challenged and deepened.
