Testimonials from past volunteers
God never ceases to amaze! Having been long time friends with Stephen and Kari Sene I knew of their love for Jesus. I also knew they are committed to reaching people for Christ. So when I traveled to Colombia in January of 2016 to be a part of their first visiting mission team, I fully expected that we would see God working. But what I didn’t expect was to be blown away by all that God is doing in Medellin and how he has placed Stephen and Kari right in the middle of his plan. It’s obvious God has them right where he wants them and is not only molding their hearts to serve but is also preparing people to hear their message. Our entire team was encouraged and inspired by both their passion for the children of Colombia and their tireless energy and efforts to serve. Stephen and Kari are special people and I am confident God will continue to use them. I look forward to the opportunity to return.
Visiting Colombia was an experience anyone would love to have, however, God sent me on this trip exactly when I needed it. I had just been through some trying times, with school and relationships that needed to be cut loose. When I planned to go on this trip I had no idea what God was calling me to or why he was calling me to it. I just knew He was calling me. Going to Colombia was the first time I have ever been out of the United States, naturally I was excited and even more scared, not just being called out of my comfort zone physically, but spiritually. I can still vividly remember the first night we arrived in Colombia, looking over the city and being mesmerized by all of the lights, and at that moment all fear was gone. This huge, yet beautiful city, made a small town girl feel at home. The next morning brought a whole new light on the city, I am still speechless when I think about the mountains surrounding me, I had never seen something so magnificent in my life, and that’s when God spoke to me. Sometimes in life we get so focused on what is in front of us, all of the work we have to get done, feeling as if a tough season will never come to an end. For me, that was school, in an extremely small town, feeling as if I would never get out, but God, being the gracious God He is, simply reminded me to be content in this season. We only see a very small piece of his plan (being in a small town, up to my nose in books) but He has something extraordinary planned for us, things we could never imagine (seeing Colombia, and how there are bigger things out there than what I am seeing right now). God is still teaching me many lessons through this trip and I am slowing learning to be the person He has created me to be. I am beyond grateful for the people I met there; my heart longs to go back every day.
” Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” -Philippians 4:6
I've always had a desire to go on a mission trip. The day that Stephen and Kari came and spoke at LifeSpring telling our church about their ministry and inviting us to join them was a great day for me. That's the day that God said to me "here it is, you've been waiting for it all this time. Now its up to you what you do with it!" I committed to going to Medellin, Colombia not knowing what to expect. I knew I had a passion for reaching people through missions but wasn't sure if it was a calling or just a desire. So I went not knowing what to expect and praying that God would reveal to me whatever it was I needed to see or feel or hear.
This experience brought me out of my comfort zone. I remember Stephen saying at LifeSpring that sometimes you have to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. I honestly live by that quote now!!! I shared the love that Jesus has for me by loving on strangers the same way. I stood before groups of people and spoke about what God has done for me and what he can do for them. I bonded with guys even though we had to speak more with our hands than our mouth because of the language barrier yet they became friends/brothers to me. We still communicate with each other probably weekly using Facebook. I saw God move and I felt it even more!!! I learned what true worship really is when we visited a church downtown and people were walking for an hour to just to be there and were standing with hands held high and smiles from ear to ear. They were eager to hear Gods word and were honored to worship Him. We miss that point here in the States a lot of times. I saw kids come to a sports camp and were excited to show what they already knew but were excited to learn more. Even better they were excited to see us and to interact with us. They gave all they had and I hope they took home the reason we were really there. I had a group of guys that were ages 16 - 21 and I had one of them whose name was Juan David read John 3:16 for me but I had him plug his name so it read "For God so loved Juan David that he gave his only son so that Juan David believes in him, Juan David shall not perish but have everlasting life" I told the guys this applies to each of them. You could see the wheels turning!
Open Arms Boys probably effected me the most. I walked away from there that day praying for God to show me a way to continue to help them. I came home and after a lot of prayer decided to try and raise money to help them get a new water well they could use for washing, bathing, drinking, etc. We handed out water bottles and asked that people would enjoy the clean water and bring the bottle back full of change. I called it "Change The Water" I told Josh Weaver about what we were doing and he got his church on board also. Bill Perrow told me he needed $4800 and that a German couple that are social workers are living there now and donated $1700. So we needed $3100 to complete the well. Between our 2 churches we raised approx. $3500 and clean water will be at the Farm very soon!
I share that because Bill told us that he was surprised we were doing this because most people come and go and never look back. Well I don't want to look back either, instead I want to go back and do more!!! Not just at the Farm but all over, I want Medellin to know who God is and how great He is!
I came back home and went back to my 9 - 5 job and just felt out of place. I told Josh I felt like I needed to be doing something else and that I was wasting my time in this office. I need to be out there spreading Gods word!!!
One Ministry gave me the chance to wake up and see how God wants to use me and that there is plenty of work to do. The team of people we had was amazing! All different walks of life coming together for the same purpose. Our time together was great especially our worship time each night. It was amazing the emotion that would come over you during that time of reflection each night. I miss Medellin and its people each day. I look forward to going back and building on my experience.
Thank You One Ministry and Strive Sports for making this possible and allowing me to serve with you. I pray for your ministry each day and look forward serving with you again in the near future.
"But if anyone has the worlds goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does Gods love abide in him?" - 1 John 3:17
My mission trip to Colombia was amazing! The country is beautiful and the people of Colombia were very kind and welcoming. I felt fulfilled as I helped organizations that are truly spreading The Word of God to this nation. The stories of God's redeeming love that we heard from several coaches and other missionaries was really heart warming. To see God being glorified in the work being done there, is what I loved most. I anticipate organizing a team from my home church to go and serve with the missionaries in Bello and Medellin soon! I am so glad I chose to go and am excited to go again!
