My Mission Year Experience in Leuven, Belgium

by Sara Fonseca

The Kairos Mission Year program is for young people who have finished university and want to serve the Lord in a Kairos university outreach. The Mission Year program is especially focused on evangelism, service, and training through active mission. For the year 2014-15, we have three Mission Year missionaries serving in the European region.

So here I am, doing a Mission Year in Leuven, Belgium, working with a university outreach called Pharos. I work with the mission team and specifically lead the womenís side of the outreach.

One part of my mission is to lead a sharing group with girls who are on the verge of becoming Christians. An important part of the work is becoming friends with these girls. I listen to them and share about life with the Lord, his love, and all the wonders and challenges of the Christian life. As part of the mission team, I participate in Pharosís general organization and planning. We organize evangelistic activities to attract more people, and we plan other activities in order to help our members grow in their discipleship. In those things, we bring to life Pharosís mission and vision. I also supervise the service of the volunteers, helping them to see our vision and what means to give and receive from Pharos.

I am experiencing Godís grace in a very clear way. God is using this time to teach me to give him control, to trust in him, and to be patient. He is talking to me about finding my happiness in him alone, thus being able to be joyful anywhere and under any circumstance.
