Missionaries in training - by Michelle Murray
I think the most enjoyable part of my ministry work is observing what the Lord is doing in the lives of students. When you can clearly see the call of God on a young person, it is exhilarating.
Lauren is a great example of this. Lauren has worked at Origins since August 2015. She is a senior at Barclay College majoring in Missions. Lauren likes to laugh. She is a very hard worker and just plain enjoys life. She is fun to be around. She will be graduating on May 1st, 2016.
It gets better.
Lauren married Corbin Kellum last July. They are committed to God’s call to full time missionary work. To gain experience they will spend 2 months serving in Ecuador this summer.
I get inspired by my conversations with future missionaries like the Kellums. I am moved by their excitement for the preparation, their stories of growing in their walk with God, and learning to listening to His voice. It reminds me of how significant a privilege it is for me to be involved in their training and sending process.
