Today at 4:30pm (Toronto Eastern time zone) I had an interview on Skype with Darcy McAlister who oversees the application process at the missions department with the PAOC (Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada which is my church domination). He asked me all kinds of questions about my relationship with the Lord, my testimony and journey as a missionary, how I find balance between ministry and my social life and many other questions. The interview was almost an hour. To be honest I felt a lot more nervous than I thought I would be and I don’t think I had expressed myself in the best way that I should have for this important interview.

At the end of the interview Mr. Darcy McAlister told me that he would let me know in a couple of days. He told me that he has to meet and discuss this with his team and the regional director. He also told me that it is a bit of difficult decision to make because usually they get people who approach them who are going onto the mission field for the first time but for me I am already on the field. He basically told me that will make it a harder decision to decide but he will let me know.

Well it was not a no but it was not a yes either. To honest I had a gut feeling that was not a good feeling. I felt discouraged. Afterwards I went downstairs to tell my Mom how it went. When I told her I ended up crying and then she cried too which surprised me a bit. My Mom told me not to give up but just to wait and see what happens. I felt very thankful for my Mom’s support that she gave me but at the same time I also felt very discouraged the rest of the evening. I would really appreciate your prayers for a good result but most of all that it would be God’s will that would be done.

About Andrea

I am from Whitby, Ontario. I have lived in Romania for 9 years as a missionary but I am currently in Canada on a sabbatical break at this time. I have also lived in South Korea for a year and I have also been to Russia, Uganda, Albania and the Czech Republic on short-term mission trips. In 2012, God also gave me an amazing opportunity to go to Mozambique for the Harvest Mission School with Iris Ministries as well. I love children, reaching out to people who are in need and vulnerable, I have a passion to fight against the injustice issue of human trafficking and to simply share the love of Jesus wherever I go. I also love cats too and I have a cat of my own named Minnie!
