Brenda Nyakanga – Ebeye, Marshall Islands

Service is what sustains and gives you life. I’ve always had this ideal of changing the people I would meet in my mission site and bringing them to Jesus, but they changed me; they brought me to Jesus. They taught me what it means to love with action instead of words. A friend told me once, “Love the feeling is a product of love the action.” They taught me what it means to give even when it seems you have nothing left to offer. They taught me that the language of heaven is loving your neighbor as yourself. The Christian walk is about being a blessing to the person beside you. It wasn’t easy. I cried, I laughed, I danced, I gave up, I got back up, I fought, I tried, and through it all God held my hand and that was enough. Missionary work isn’t for a selective group of people; it’s for anyone and everyone with a heart to share Jesus.
