Reflection and Devotional

On this Palm Sunday, Eunha (Grace) Choi, missionary from South Korea who served in the Philippines and now serves as a Missionary in Residence at Global Ministries’ Atlanta headquarters, reflects on John 15 and the ways missionaries, like Jesus, seek God’s guidance on God’s purpose for their lives.

When I reached Montevideo, Uruguay, to begin missionary service as a Global Mission Fellow, I thought I would be working with youth and children. But the first place church leaders assigned me was Espacio VAR, which operates a shelter for people who have no permanent homes.

When I received an email confirming my selection as a missionary to serve in Mozambique, I couldn’t believe it. When I arrived, I faced different challenges, including language, since I come from an English-speaking country.

As a Global Mission Fellow US-2, I moved from my small town in Arkansas to Miami to serve as the Fundraising and Outreach Coordinator for Florida Justice for Our Neighbors, a nonprofit that provides free, high-quality immigration legal services to low-income immigrants throughout the state of Florida.
