Testimonials: Maren

I lived in Meskine from March 2012 to February 2013. I worked as an Occupational Therapist in the hospital. I organized a Sunday School for sick children. I enjoyed visiting people in the village, building relationships, and praying with patients. My daily work brought me much joy.

When I arrived, I was so welcomed and loved. There was a strong sense of community in the team there. They have become my family. You only have to spend a few hours there to know and feel Jesus’ presence. I will never forget the people of Meskine or their culture. They were so hospitable and they never failed to be friendly or loving toward me. I loved the beauty of the Meskine countryside and the warm weather.

My time there is a memory I will never lose. It broadened my horizons to see such a completely different world.

My time there is a memory I will never lose. It broadened my horizons to see such a completely different world. I am much more thankful for all I have now. Problems in my day-to-day life seem much smaller when I think of Africa. I often find myself asking what is truly important in life. I help others and spend time with people more often because friends and family have become more important to me. My character as a perfectionist has become more relaxed. I also learned the importance of prayer. On the mission field there, I had so many chances to talk with patients about God. I miss this and it encourages me to continue living my life near to Jesus.
