I don’t feel like I’m going to be in Bronx in a little over a month. At all.

Senior year was supposed to be this light-course-load, relaxed, time but it has been the fullest of my years at ACU. It has been completely wonderful, but my thoughts have been almost fully consumed with trying to foster the relationships I have with people that will all be going separate ways (maybe forever) in a few short weeks. I have barely made any time to dedicate to pure, uninterrupted reflection on only this mission aside from organizing where I was going and sending out letters. Embarking in to a new phase in my life is so daunting. The thought of graduating and moving my bed from the city I’ve lived in for 4 years back to my parents house is surreal. I’m not ready.. for anything, but when I think about it, that is really so exciting.

I have never done any real mission work before. I am not a Bible major. I feel out of place among my peers on this blog; at times I don’t even feel like a peer. But knowing that we are all on the same team is so encouraging. I am exceedingly confident that God will do amazing things through my brothers and sisters who’s knowledge of the Word puts mine to shame, in places far more exotic and apart from the United States. As much as I feel discouraged sometimes, I am equally confident that God is able to do just as amazing things through someone as inexperienced as me.

I can’t wait to get to New York and to the inner city. I am so excited to re-enter into a Spanish-speaking community and grow into to a level of effective communication. I am horrified and thrilled by the thought of approaching strangers and inviting them to conversation and watching the spirit lead that conversation to Christ. My mission field is as organic as the mission I am entering into itself, but out of what currently looks difficult-to-define to my unknowing eyes I know God can work in amazing and definite ways. I may not feel ready, but I know God is.

    It’s completely natural to feel a mix of emotions as you approach such a significant life transition. The uncertainty and excitement of what lies ahead can be both thrilling and intimidating. Remember, mission work doesn’t require a specific major or expertise; it’s about your heart and willingness to serve. Your commitment to fostering relationships and sharing your faith speaks volumes. You may not feel entirely ready, but your faith and the support of your team will carry you through.
