The Mississippi College BSM (Baptist Student Ministries) assigned Heather to work at Mission Arlington® the summer after her freshman year. She spent that summer the way all our Summer Missionaries do: working at the office, helping sort donations, and teaching Bible Studies in the community. When the summer was over, she went back home to finish her college career, telling all her friends how much she enjoyed the ministry.
A few years later, with school behind her, Heather considered where she might want to work. Knowing she wanted to serve God and serve people, a friend reminded her how Heather had raved about Mission Arlington® a few years before. God was tugging Heather’s heart back to Arlington.
A short time later, Heather returned to Texas and picked up where she had left off. She now coordinates several Bible Studies on the north side of Arlington. She says, “I am so blessed to have a job where I get to share Jesus with kids like this. It is such a privilege to lead families to the knowledge and love that God has for them.”
Appropriately, Heather is also one of the primary contacts for the new Summer Missionaries that come each year. She helps them feel at home and prepares them to minister during their time here. Most importantly, she prays daily for them to be effective ministers.
This year, 28 missionaries are serving at Mission Arlington® from 11 different states. Please join us in praying for them as God guides their summer.
