On Chris’ Second Serve Asia Mission Trip, God Spoke

Chris, a 27-year-old from the US, came with his two sisters to serve at an OMF conference in July 2015.

He was on the Science Team, and he had a great time helping lead the different Third Culture Kids (TCK’s) groups in hands-on science experiments.


After he returned to the US, he received a follow-up email from the OMF conference hosts thanking him for his service and letting him know about other short-term opportunities that were coming up in 2016.


One of the highlighted opportunities in the email was a two-month TCK internship. Within 6 months of returning from his first Serve Asia experience, he was on a plane to Asia again, but this time on his own.

Along with teaching the TCK programs for 3 different conferences and trainings, Chris also did some language study and partnered with a team that is focuses on getting God’s Word into the hands of an unreached people group.

About halfway through his 2-month internship, Chris felt the Lord tugging at his heart. He felt the Lord saying, “You can do this too. You can serve me here in Asia long-term.”

Although these thoughts were a bit overwhelming, and the exact details and timeline are unknown, he is confident that this is where the Lord is leading him.

How is God calling you to join Mission? We have so many opportunities!
