Benita Joy is a Malayalee Christian and serves as the Chief Editor for South Asian Connection. She is a woman of faith, gifted in the area of leadership and administration, and has a heart for world missions. Her desire is to live a life that is pure and to serve God's purposes in her generation. Benita is pursuing a double major in English and Psychology at the University of British Columbia. She loves big cities, chai, the internet, roller coasters, international cuisines, music, and hanging out with friends. She is the youngest member of Team SAC, plays guitar with a baby pink pick (Yikes!), and she's not much taller than your average dwarf (don't tell her that).
I was listening to a message from Pastor Larry Stockstill today. I always come to this point of desperation where I'm ready to give up and God comes along and says "Hey!" Well, just now was one of those times.
Did you know that 500,000 villages in India alone have never heard the Gospel?
Has God called me? YES! Check it out: But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8
And, I have His promise: Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19
And here's a scripture God gave me several weeks ago. It keeps me going even in the worst of times: He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:24
I'm not giving up.
