This summer, I will be spending two months in Nashville, Tennessee, working with a ministry organization called City Church Network. This is a collection of church planting practitioners who are committed to reaching the least reached, making disciples of all nations, and working toward the fruit of church planting movements until there is no place left. There are currently 90+ people groups represented in Nashville area alone, and City Church works to reach these individuals by creating a network of reproducing churches that meet in apartment complexes, subdivisions, and businesses. They use simple, easily reproducible strategies to saturate neighborhoods with the Gospel.
Since I began nursing school a little over 4 years ago, God has been working to cultivate within me a desire to use my nursing skills to reach the nations. My prayer is that God will use this summer internship as a means of further developing my vision for what specifically He may be calling me to--whether that is a career spent overseas on the foreign mission field, or serving the international populations within our nation's borders. As a result, I will be working primarily with Kurdish and Somali refugee communities within Nashville. I will hopefully be on a language learning track, with goals of assisting in bible studies in homes by the end of the two months. I am beyond excited about the opportunities and experiences that lie ahead, and am already praying expectantly for what God will reveal to me about what He has in store for my life as a missionary.
