Texas Regional GMMA Representative
Texas Regional Mission Coordinator
My vision for GMMA is for it to be the catalyst to spark change by serving others in the name of Christ. This organization is meant to bring people together as a community that rely on each other to better glorify Him by opening opportunities to serve. Not only will we be better prepared in the medical field, but also be better servants.
During my time in GMMA, I have seen God move and work in amazing and indescribable ways. I have witnessed Him touching hearts, healing the sick, and leading and transforming each and every one of us. GMMA is more than a pre-health or medical organization; I have learned that it is a family centered on and passionate for Christ. I thank God for these brothers and sisters who are committed to sharing His love and His word and glorifying His name! May He continue to use GMMA for His Kingdom and His glory!
GMMA is more than just a medical mission organization. Through GMMA, I have come to understand the personal and incredible love of our God in new way. I joined GMMA initially to see how I could apply my career goals with my faith. I wanted to see how I could use my passions to serve others. This was undoubtably made clear to me throughout our mission trips. However, what really keeps me coming back to GMMA, is the fact that God has transformed my own heart and my relationship with Him through GMMA.
Through GMMA, God has revealed to me how faithful and powerful He really is. He brought me to this organization and placed in me a heart for missions and service, teaching me humility and love along the way. How lucky are we to have the opportunity to bring healing not only physically, but also spiritually by allowing the Spirit to work through us!! I am eager to watch GMMA continue to grow and be known as an organization that shines Christ’s light onto others.
I think GMMA is one of the only organizations that provides mental, physical and spiritual healing to those who truly desire it. Most people will never be able to physically see God but his presence is made real by the fact that we show an unconditional love for our brothers and sisters. GMMA is a special opportunity to share that love with God, with those who receive medical healing and with each other. I joined GMMA because it provides those things and prepares us for the medical field in a Christ-centered way.
I joined GMMA because growing up my parents always stressed the importance of giving back to the community. When i heard about the missions and medical opportunities that GMMA offered i was very intrigued. After attending the first couple general meetings i was sold because of the tight knit community that GMMA had. The mutual passion to serve God through medical work was something no other Organization had offered here at UT
Omnipresent, omnipotent, and omnipresent. After being part of GMMA UT chapter along with all the mission trips to Mexico for past three years, I can clearly state that theses ’Omni’s’ belong to God. GMMA has provided me a precious opportunity for me to have witnessed how God has also been working on people from the different parts of the Earth. God showed me how he’s able to heal people not only physically but also spiritually. All the way from pre-med and non pre-health. I’ve shared a long time with GMMA, and it has grown and molded my faith in such unexpected ways. I can’t wait to see how God will be using GMMA UT chapter. Missions can happen everywhere. missions should happen everywhere and mission is already everywhere.
I first joined GMMA because I simply thought it was a good organization to join for students who are interested in medicine and missions. But GMMA became much more than that to me, it helped me grow as a better follower of Christ and taught me how to truly rely on God only.
GMMA has taught me about the power of a spiritual community to heal those in need. The continuous and committed involvement in the communities we reach out to has shown to me how GMMA can transform lives both physically and spiritually. In addition, the presence of great wisdom and spiritual strength seen in the mentoring health professionals and fellow students has been a testament to how the Lord is shaping future leaders. Through my involvement in GMMA, I strive to become a similar mentor to others in their spiritual faith.
GMMA has encouraged me to be an active witness of Christ alongside other brothers and sisters who have the same desire and passion for the Kingdom of God. Despite being a Business major, I was drawn to its genuine, welcoming environment and eventually developed an even bigger heart for missions and outreach. I am so excited to see how God will further use this organization to reveal His sovereignty and goodness over the world.
GMMA has allowed me to witness God’s work in countries and the greatness of His love for us. His love for us has no barriers, and we truly get to experience this when we go abroad, or even here on campus, to serve His community. GMMA is made up of a community that is on fire for God, teaching me along the way to serve others humbly, prayerfully, and selflessly. I am so blessed to be a part of this organization that has allowed me to see how I can glorify God within the medical field and those around me.
I joined GMMA after coming back from a personal mission trip because I saw how much God can really do along with the infinite ways that God can use us to minister to those we are reaching out to. I wanted to see God work in a different light, especially one where God would utilize the area of health in order to reach the lost. The opportunity to grow and be nurtured spiritually with a community right here on Campus is one that I personally believe is very special and that has so much potential to display God’s never-ending love for us.
Family. That is the first word that comes to mind whenever I think about GMMA. I love how not only are the students truly invested in each other and are able to be a source of encouragement for one another as brothers and sister in Christ, but I also love how the doctors genuinely care about how we are doing, be an exemplary role model/mentors as followers of Jesus, and treat us as their children. GMMA is more than just an org. It is a place where we can see how God is moving within us, through us, and through those around us; it is a place where we can experience God tangibly and is a place where we can grow out our faith; lastly, it is place where we can see how to carry out our faith in professions we would like to pursue through our doctors, dentists, etc. I don’t think that I would have grown was much in my relationship with God had it not been for GMMA. It makes you really challenge your identity within Christ in a nurturing way.
