Alas, I am on South African soil once again! The peace of God that transcends all understanding has surely been a testimony to my travels here. I am learning that when you step out in faith and let God do His work in your life, He continually provides and exceeds your expectations.
The prayers that were prayed before my departure have truly shifted and impacted my life. For my mentors, family, and friends that were a part of those prayers and continue to pray, I am forever grateful. With sincerity, I can attest to those prayers being powerful. I am at complete peace where God has me and I could not be more joyful. I mean, seriously, I woke up at 4am today grinning from ear to ear with the utmost joy simply because I am where I am!
I must say the company culture at Joint Aid Management plays a massive role in their success. I have never seen community, faith, and professionalism lived out so eloquently in a workplace. It is an absolute privilege and honor to be working alongside the JAMily here in South Africa.
I am working as the global marketing intern. My work focus will be on marketing JAM UK, US, and Canada. It is just day one and I am already increasing in wisdom because of the leadership I am surrounded by. I am learning about global campaigns, niche markets, effective communication, analyzing social media productivity, and so much more! I haven’t even been here 24 hours! I am so encouraged by the people I am surrounded by. I am certain that this experience is going to challenge me and develop me professionally.
Next week I will turn 22 and travel to Angola to do field documentation for JAM. The doors God has opened in my life stun me. I am absolutely in awe of His grace, love, and plans that are always bigger than my own. Again, the opportunity that the Lumos Scholarship and Belmont University have given me is an absolute dream come true. I am so humbled by this opportunity and I know great things are ahead.
