I want to take my light to the darkest possible places. I have been privileged much in my life being born in a great location, great family with faith and wealth, and have been given many opportunities. I see this not a burden or a source of shame, but an opportunity and responsibility to take what I have been given and give it back. I want to use my skills and resources to build God's Kingdom where it is least established. This is a life long pursuit, but I expect it will take many different shapes and forms in the future. Right now I have been placed in Memphis and given a great opportunity to give to the underserved in an American Urban setting. I have for a long time looked forward to the opportunity of life overseas and work cross-culturally in medically underserved and spiritually unreached areas, should God allow. This is my dream, but I will, of course, follow where God has set my path.
I will be serving at Christ Community Health Services (CCHS), a faith-based health clinic in Memphis, TN which serves the underserved in Memphis, which includes uninsured, underinsured, and marginalized in our city.
- Serve as Christ has called us to do.
- Preach the message of his gospel.
- Improve health equity in Memphis.
