Have you thought of missions as being overseas in far away lands? I did until I began to serve locally and came to understand that some serve right here in our local communities. In today’s podcast learn about local missions. I speak with Kalli Hill, one such missionary. She shares her story about how her faith transformed from an inherited family attribute to responsive belief in Jesus. She would ultimately choose to forego the career for which she studied in order to evangelize youth at college and university campuses right here in the USA. Kalli explains what it means to “surrender all” to the Lord and to serve in an affluent culture where the perceived need for God seems to lessen every day. But in reality He is greatly needed. This is a story about the reality of God in a young woman’s life who deeply desires to reach America’s youth for Christ in their most vulnerable years.
Ms. Hill shares intimately about her youth, being the youngest of four children, overcoming hurts and the importance of community and mentors in our spiritual lives. In this episode you will experience a day in the life of a campus missionary and the Christ centered organization called Cru. Learn about the great resources they have to help their missionaries and the youth they evangelize and disciple. Whether you are just inquisitive about the life in Christ or a veteran believer, you will be inspired.
