Can you imagine graduating from high school and just a few months later going to India all by yourself in order to serve Christ? That is what Melissa Hill is doing right now. You see her in the photo helping some women with their daily baking. She is second from the right. Melissa is part of the Oviedo congregation. Her mom Lisa is on the worship team and her father Doug is part of the leadership team. All you need to do is read the quote below and you will know why I am inspired by this incredible young lady.
I have been going to the Mother Teresa Home for the Destitute and Dying three days a week and it’s awesome….I bath the ones who cannot walk and sit in their beds and never move (even to go to the bathroom)….It has been both a hard and a humbling experience but with that I have experienced amazing growth and trust in Him.
Please remember to pray for Melissa as she serves Christ among the least of His children. Pray for Doug and Lisa as the entrust their daughter to God’s care. Pray for how God would want to shape and challenge you through the example of this wonderful young lady.
With you in His great adventure
