I once was running from God now I am sprinting towards him. 

If you had told me two and a half years ago that I would be getting baptized I would’ve told you that you’re crazy. I was in a place where I felt like God didn’t care about me anymore. I was dealing with so many internal struggles when my family began coming to Mission. Not long after coming to Mission, God pushed me out of my comfort zone and I started volunteering with Mission Students. God used those middle schoolers to change my life in so many ways. I have found a new purpose and as they have grown they have also helped me grow. I have learned more about myself and my identity in Christ in this past year and a half than I ever had before. I am now proud to say that I am a follower of Jesus and I am excited to come to church every Sunday. Now instead of running from God during hard times I run to him because what Jon has taught us is so true, “God’s got this.”
