My Story:
I grew up as a missionary kid overseas, in a very loving and gospel centered home. I knew I needed a savior from an early age but I never really understood what it meant for Jesus to be Lord of my life. I knew a lot about God but I wasn’t living for him, and as I got older it was evident that I was living for myself and what other people thought of me. My family moved to South Africa right before I started high school and I got involved with an incredible youth group at our church. Our youth pastor’s wife spent a lot of time with me and through that relationship, and a few others, the Lord began to transform my heart and my desires. Jesus opened my eyes to my sin and his true love made me want to start living for him and not the approval of others. I moved to Furman after I graduated from high school, and the Lord used Campus Outreach to continue to teach me what it means to live for him and for his Kingdom. I am very excited that I get to be apart of this ministry and help young women know how to love and serve God for his glory.
