This San Diego Impact Trip was an opportunity for me to see God work in powerful and unexpected ways. It was so cool for me to be a part of this group and see how God could use us collectively, despite our weaknesses. We weren’t the most experienced team. We weren’t a group of veteran Christians who have been all walking with Jesus for 20 + years or something. We weren’t the most eloquent, but yet, God used us so missionally for His kingdom. It was a fresh reminder to me that God does not call the qualified, but He qualifies the called. I was able to see how God could use some of us who were new in our faith to do Kingdom work for Him by simply having faith and taking a step of obedience forward. For myself personally, I haven’t always been the strongest at evangelism. I always felt like I needed to know everything about the Bible, apologetics, scientific arguments for defending the faith, so forth and so forth, in order to have a conversation with some about Jesus. I was able to see on this trip that really all I needed to do was meet someone where they were at, love on them, tell them Jesus loves them too and the rest was in God’s sure hands. It was a reminder too that God could use the areas where I was lacking, purposefully for Him.
