Ask a VOM Worker Story
Published on November 11th, 2011
Q: What kinds of things did you do as a child that helped prepare you for your work now?
A: This is kind of a funny one, but I think being open to eating other kinds of food. I always wanted to try new things. Just trying is good. Now when I go to India I can eat curry, fish heads, and the food that they love.
Also, getting a heart for other nations at a young age. My fourth grade teacher had been a missionary, so I was made aware of the need for the gospel in other countries. Then when I was in middle school, we would come to VOM headquarters and volunteer at the warehouse. Even when I was in Boy Scouts, I did my community service hours at VOM. That’s how I got involved, and later God opened the door for me to come work here.
