As we conclude our two weeks of ministry at the CarePoints, I have begun to reflect on the many lessons I have learned as we spent time ministering.

On our last day, my team listened the choir practice at our CarePoint. As I sat and listened to a group of children sing with joy to the Lord, I was overwhelmed by the love of God. The kids at the CarePoint have nothing compared to American culture, yet they are filled with joy and hope. Though most of the kids will go home to families where poverty is common, they still sing praises to God and express so much happiness and love of life. Their hope and resilience is something that will always be an inspiration to me. Many of the older girls I had the privilege of speaking with have dreams for their futures that include going to university. They have hopes to become nurses, dressmakers, and even doctors. I am so grateful that an organization like AIM can help make these dreams a reality. 

 God brought me to Africa for 4 weeks, and in these few weeks I have grown more in my faith then ever before. God has revealed so much to me about his character and love. Through listening prayer activities, I have grown into a new vulnerability and openness in my prayer life. As I choose to walk in obedience to Jesus every day, there is no limit to the adventures we can embark on together. I have grown so much in my ability to dream about the future and step into the calling God has for my life. This trip marks a new season in my life, defined by falling in love with Jesus all over again and having limitless dreams for my future. I am learning how to let go and step into a new freedom with Jesus. I don’t need to be anxious about what the future holds but instead focus on the present and what I can do to love others each day. I can be carefree and appreciate each moment I get to spend with Him. This trip has been an unforgettable experience, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
