Love God. Love People. Serve the World.

Hello! My name is Amanda Kirkscey and I am a Young Adult Volunteer serving in Korea for the 2019-2020 class. I’m from Texas, and I’ve spent the past 2 years serving as a Global Mission Fellow in Frankfurt, Germany.

Best time to get empty beach pictures is when the fecal bacteria levels are at an all time high. Cute! (Just don’t get in the water!)

“Love God. Love People. Serve the World.” has kind of become a mantra of mine over the past few years. God has called me to spread Christ’s love through helping others and immersing myself into cross-cultural missions. Living out this calling has molded me into a person that 17-year-old Amanda wouldn’t recognize, and I love that. My hope is that God will use me as a connection between people all across the world.

This blog is another means of connection for me. It will make me vulnerable in ways I am not emotionally prepared for. I am sure to put my foot in my mouth or alienate someone who supports me. I’m sorry for that. I apologize in advance. I’m here to be compassionately honest with you, and with myself. (More on my distain for the phrase “brutally honest” later.)

I leave for Korea one month from today. Wish me luck!
