Call to Missions

I expect to see God move as I join in the work He is already doing through The Luke Commission (TLC). Over the past two years, I have begun dreaming about the possibilities of what God might do in developing the rehabilitation department as part of TLC's comprehensive services. I have many dreams, but I hold these dreams with open hands. In the meantime, I plan to continue serving our rehab team, training and equipping them to provide compassionate, Christ-centered physical rehabilitation. As of the past several weeks, my regular prayer over the rehab team has been Ephesians 3:14-21, that the rehab team members would first themselves come to know the depths of Christ’s love for them. Then, out of this security, that they might share Jesus and His love with each of our patients through physical rehabilitation. I plan to continue serving alongside the team, seeking to share Jesus’ love and compassion with each patient I have the privilege of treating. I plan to do everything I can by God’s strength and enablement to expand our rehabilitation program to reach across and beyond the nation of Eswatini. I plan to continue

learning and growing in being a Christ-honoring leader, carefully stewarding all of the responsibilities entrusted to me. My ultimate plan and expectation is to see God transform lives by the love and compassion of Jesus as expressed through our team. I am 100% confident God does not need me to accomplish any of the above, but I continue to be grateful each day as He invites me to be part of what He is doing in and through TLC.
