April 13 I started my journey to Germany at Steiger International. I was one of the first volunteers and we started right away knowing that the mission school would start April 27. We had a health inspection and a living inspection that we needed to pass before the school started and if we did not….we would have to close the school. With our team working hard for 2 weeks and lots of prayer we thankfully passed. Also during this, we took time to be intentional with team bonding. 8 different countries represented, 17 volunteers, and having the same heart and mission was a recipe for success or disaster. Thankfully it is beyond successful! Every night I think about how our team is such a support to each other and what it is a picture of being the body of Christ.
Today in honor of a dear woman's birthday I have decided to write about her and what she is doing in the world. This young lady is, Malaina. Malaina is a bright and joyful friend to be around! She is always up for an adventure and is so very talented! She attended Bethany Global University (BGU) where she completed her BA with a double Major in Biblical Studies and Intercultural Sciences. Life following Christ doesn't always pan out like you plan. There are curves and hills, bumps and twists, but it is always worth it! Malaina's story has a couple of these about which we are speaking, but we will get to that. Buckle up as I introduce you to a fascinating woman running after Christ.
