Missions as a Single Person
Maybe you have noticed like I have, that their are many single amazing women going out to the mission field.
I have been called to missions since I was 16 years old. The weight of this calling got heavier and heavier as my own hearts desires for a family and marriage seemed to get further and further as I walked closer to being a full time missionary.
It took my a while to full surrender to the call no matter my unmet desires. I remember in January 2020 I laid down all my desire for myself and picked up commitment to do whatever God would ask me to do.
You see, I had done ministry and life as a single person for 26 years and I genuinely enjoy my life. I also sensed I was in a preparing and training season and not fully in my life's calling yet. However, I would always have these moments sometimes many, sometimes few. Where I would deeply ache in the core of who I am for a family. Not only ache for them pray and sense the purpose of my future child and marriage even when I have never met them.
To my single sisters, who desire family and marriage, I would encourage you to pray for you future family, marriage, husband, and your self. Sow seeds into your future spiritually and where you don't know what to pray invite Holy Spirit to come help you.
My video below it a letter I wrote to the younger version of myself. I am so thankful for my season as a single person. It has made me who I am and it is a special time with God. He met me, and continues to do, in my deepest desires and sorrows. God is faithful and good.
We can trust the story He is writing on our lives.
