GMMA has impacted me by allowing me to see what God has called me to do with my life. I’ve always wanted to be a doctor but I was never sure if that was my purpose in life. On my very first medical mission trip with GMMA, our health professional mentors had opened my eyes, showing me how I can use medicine to glorify Christ. I want to show to the world that though Jesus may have the power to physically heal you, he also has the power that can spiritually heal you. Being spiritually healed brings more comfort and assurance in the hope and trust of the Lord.
Despite growing up in a Christian-based family, I chose to continue having a relationship with God coming into college and nurturing it through ministry and serving. GMMA is fairly new to me, however, I look forward to see how God will use me through GMMA as its vice president and vessel.
Despite wanting to pursue the medical field for years, my faith in the Lord is relatively new. Entering college, He led me to GMMA as an opportunity to intertwine my passions and showed me that while I prepare for medical school, I can continue to grow spiritually. Although I am quite new to GMMA, I am excited for what God has in store for us.
GMMA impacted me on representing what it means to not only be strong in my faith, but also to apply it in real world situations. This club gave me great opportunities to apply what I learned both in school and church to those I have met and interacted with on mission trips and fellow colleagues.
GMMA provided me with a support group of fellow believers who are determined to make a difference. Being a member of GMMA has not only grown my faith, but it has shown me that my faith and desire to pursue medicine can go hand-in-hand and be used to make an impact in people’s lives.
