Jeesoung Yi

Growing up, I frequently used the term, "what a coincidence", to explain unforeseen circumstances that I quickly accredited to random happenings in my life. As I grow daily in my walk with Christ, I now know that these "coincidences" are stepping stones that God has put in my life, in His sovereignty, to lead me to fulfill His purposes. He moved me from Midland, TX to Houston (a place I never wanted to be, but now love), and gave me a church home at Grace Bible Church. I came to know my wife almost 4 years ago through a growth group at GBC and now we are expecting our first child in June. 

 

I would never have seen myself in a leadership role in any capacity in the church, but after 4 years of attending GBC, volunteering with children's ministry, and participating in community groups, I quickly saw God opening all sorts of doors and opportunities to serve and disciple. Early last year, I was asked to help co-lead a growth group to which I anxiously accepted, however shortly after accepting I was also asked to become the volunteer director of our Global Missions Team. Even though I wanted to, I knew I could not do both well. Through prayers and another "coincidence" in life's circumstances, the Lord closed the door on co-leading the growth group and I earnestly accepted the director role. Yet again I saw this as another stepping stone. 

 

Fast forward to 2017…Stephanie and I booked a vacation to spend time with her family before the arrival of our baby, however due to unforeseen circumstances she was no longer able to go and we had to cancel last minute. Although we were both disappointed, I remember telling her that there was definitely a reason why we could no longer go but I did not know why. That next week, Clif Kennedy with Every Village, reached out and asked if I could join him on Every Village's annual Survey Trip to South Sudan. Needless to say, this trip has the exact same dates as our vacation and again I saw the Lord at work. I truly believe that God still speaks to us today; we just have to have willing hearts and open eyes to see what He is saying.

 

As the Global Missions Director, the opportunity to see God working across the globe is an incredible honor and I am constantly humbled on a daily basis by what He is doing. The Global Team gets to see and interact with GBC's partner ministries and missionaries all over the world as they bring new believers to Christ. I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to witness firsthand what Every Village is accomplishing in South Sudan during their annual survey trip. However, I cannot accomplish this alone, therefore I prayerfully ask that you join with me in my fundraising efforts for this trip and become a part of my journey. Any donation amount would be greatly appreciated but also prayers that Christ would be known in South Sudan and God would be glorified through our trip there in March. 

 

for His Glory,

Jeesoung Yi
