After 10 months living in the jungles of Costa Rica doing missions work immediately after graduating high school, I’ve learned that I love to love people, as simple as that sounds. I also have a pioneer’s heart, I love to travel down the road that is not often taken. I love experiencing new cultures, and I love making that culture my home, becoming a part of that culture by loving and being loved by the natives who accept me into their family so willingly. These people who miles from any developed civilization have become a part of my heart, blending with the colors of my soul. I love to be friends with these people and love them the way that God loves them, whether it’s playing soccer with a child, serving the men who have been tied down by work, or being a shoulder to cry on for those with a broken heart, this is the calling of my heart. And this is what I want to do with my life, to live in poverty with those who have nothing but at the same time have everything they need and that I want. I want to be an international missionary, and studying Pschology and another language will help me as God calls me to the peripheries of civilization.
