More Than Just a Degree

An American pre-med student dives into a world of seeking God’s heart for the nations, welcoming internationals, and using her skills to advance the Gospel to the ends of the earth Jael was a pre-med student with a full schedule and very little time to dedicate elsewhere. Yet after she heard Tori, a CMM College Station staff member, speak about missions at an organization called Live Beyond (a Christian ministry to Haitians through medical care), Jael knew the Lord was leading her to be proactive about how to strategically pursue God’s missional heart even further. At the same time, Tori felt drawn to Jael and the Lord began to use this friendship as one of many ways to lead Jael even deeper into a life on mission. Though Jael’s schedule was packed, Tori was faithful to pursue this young woman’s heart. As their friendship grew, Tori invited Jael to go through Xplore with her and, instead of making excuses about lack of time or more strenuous priorities common to student life, the two began meeting at 6 a.m. every week.

When we first met Miriam, she didn’t know much about the 10/40 Window or the Biblical basis of missions. Like most Kenyan believers, Miriam saw missions as a Western idea, not something for African believers. Because Miriam held this belief, she did not see herself playing an active role in accomplishing the Great Commission. For her, being a good Christian meant going to church every Sunday while staying away from the things of this world. During her fourth year of medical school, Miriam was able to connect with a few of the CMM field workers in Nairobi, Kenya. It was during that time that God showed her what following Jesus was truly about. Through Scripture, Miriam saw that she was truly blessed by God to be a blessing to others.
