It all started when…

IT WAS APRIL 2014 AND I WAS IN A CAR WITH THREE OTHER GIRLS, IN BELGIUM. WE WERE INTERNS AND ON OUR WAY TO OUR NEXT DESTINATION. I REMEMBER I WAS LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW, BLANKLY STARING AT THE PASSING LANDSCAPE WHEN I WAS SUDDENLY STRUCK WITH AN OVERWHELMING SENSE OF PEACE. I HEARD GOD QUIETLY SPEAK, “YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO COME BACK”. I WASN’T SURE WHAT IT MEANT, ALL I COULD UNDERSTAND WAS THAT GOD WAS MOVING MY HEART FOR A COUNTRY THAT WAS IN NEED OF HOPE AND GOD’S LOVE, THE SAME HOPE AND LOVE I RECEIVED IN ACCEPTING CHRIST. I REMEMBER LEAVING BELGIUM WITH THE THOUGHT THAT THIS WAS THE COUNTRY THAT GOD WAS CALLING ME TO. BUT... I STILL HAD ALMOST TWO YEARS OF SCHOOL LEFT. I PUT THE LONGING AND THE ITCHING FEELING OF BEING CALLED TO BELGIUM AWAY AS I FOCUSED ON FINISHING BIBLE SCHOOL. MY WHOLE PURPOSE IN ATTENDING BIBLE SCHOOL WAS TO EQUIP ME AND GROW ME FOR THE CALLING I RECEIVED INTO MISSIONS TO PLANT A CHURCH IN 2013. TWO YEARS LATER I GRADUATED COLLEGE AND I HEARD THE WHISPER AGAIN, GOD WAS SAYING IT'S TIME. I DECIDED TO GO BACK TO BRUSSELS FOR A SECOND TRIP TO SEEK CONFIRMATION AS TO WHAT GOD WAS LEADING  ME TO BE PART OF. AND ON THAT SECOND TRIP GOD CONTINUED TO FILL ME WITH THE SAME OVERWHELMING PEACE I HAD FELT MY FIRST TIME. BUT ON THIS TRIP I GAINED A CLEARER VISION FOR WHAT GOD WANTS TO DO. THERE’S A FIELD OF NEED FOR HIS LOVE IN BELGIUM, AND THE YOUNG PEOPLE THAT NEED TO BE REACHED, NEED TO BE POURED INTO, NEED TO KNOW THAT GOD LOVES THEM AND THAT HE IS THE WAY. HE IS THE ONLY WAY.
