Current SLMs in Cambodia
I have honestly been thinking about this particular program for two years now. I felt so at home in India, that leaving was the hardest part. I feel like I left part of my heart there at that orphanage. I know it isn’t the same setting, but I have this feeling that I am being called to go back. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this for two years now. I need to be in community with my brothers and sisters in India again. I learned so much from my experience but two weeks wasn’t enough; I would really like to take a year to be there.
I long to continue my service to others. My passions lie in love of others and the world around me. I find life in helping others and I learn most when I work with others. I hope to learn new skills, new cultural ways and new ways to communicate with people. I want to learn more about humanity, the economic and spiritual struggles and about myself. I love experiencing new cultures and I really hope to embrace my surroundings and get to know people from a new local community on a personal and professional basis.
I would like to serve in order to use the skills and knowledge that I have acquired to help those most in need. I know that there are many people who can benefit if I give my time and energy to assist them, but I also know that I will benefit from interacting with them just as much, if not even more so.
God definitely has given me a deep desire to serve the Church and give all of myself in service to Him and to the whole body of Christ. I am in a unique position in my life to be in my mid-twenties and to be single and without any children etc. I definitely believe that God has given me this opportunity so that I can fully serve His Church in missions and offer myself in ways that others with families may not be able to. I am ready to answer that call and give myself in service to the Lord and to His people; wherever that may take me and whatever that may mean.
