GMMA is a prayer movement. This past summer, God has really shown me how much He is moving through GMMA, bringing together people from different places who are passionate to learn, serve, and pray for His kingdom. I have been very blessed to be apart of this family that is on fire for Him. We are reminded that our mission field is all around us. He has shown us time and time again that He is faithful and all-knowing in every circumstance. Even though we may not understand the things that are happening, He knows exactly what He’s doing. I am excited to see how God will continue to work in and through GMMA!
I joined GMMA because I loved its purpose and the mission statement. I wanted to be equipped and trained with people who share same visions and gain experiential knowledge about God. Through this organization, I was able to connect with pre-health students who have similar goals as me, and get advices from healthcare professionals. GMMA has also showed me how to live a missional life locally and globally.
Family. That is the first word that comes to mind whenever I think about GMMA. I love how not only are the students truly invested in each other and are able to be a source of encouragement for one, but I also love how the doctors genuinely care about how we are doing, are an exemplary role model/mentors as followers of Jesus, and treat us as their children. GMMA is more than just an org. It is a place where we can see how God is moving within us, through us, and through those around us. I can truly see how it is a place where we can experience God tangibly and is a place where we can grow out our faith. GMMA makes you really challenge your identity within Christ in a nurturing way.
It was evident that God was moving and working through GMMA. And I believe He still is! Through GMMA, I have the honor of joining hands with God’s servants to seek more of His heart for the world. The more I spend time with the GMMA family, the more I begin to see that it is only by God’s grace and love that we are able to take on this mission of healing and coming together as a body to worship Him. I am beyond excited to witness how the Holy Spirit continues to move and shine His light through GMMA!
GMMA has been one of my biggest blessings since coming to college. God has once again surpassed my expectations and has shown me how faithful He is as continues to work through students, physicians, and missionaries to build His kingdom and shape hearts. GMMA has allowed me to see a future in which I can serve in the medical field in a faith-centered way. God has specifically brought each person to this big family, and I am so excited to see how He will work in this next unconventional year. Missions do not stop after an abroad trip; I strive to live a missional life everyday.
GMMA has helped me rediscover my passion for God. Coming into college, I decided that I had a chance to turn over a new leaf, to leave behind the lukewarm Christian that I was in high school. GMMA was one of the first Christian organizations I found after coming onto campus, and it has been an amazing experience since. When I think about what GMMA means to me, I immediately think of community. It is incredible to see the positivity, the support, and the love that is present between the members of this organization, and this environment has really allowed for me to grow spiritually and to draw closer to God. I had also never gone on a mission trip before college, and GMMA provided me the opportunity to truly go out and serve Him in ways I never would have imagined, to be a worker in the field. GMMA has helped me immensely in my spiritual journey, and I am excited to be able to help GMMA this year as well.
It isn’t so easy to live a Christ-centered life in college. The transition from home life and campus life was just a bit too abrupt me. On top of wrestling with a deprived spirit, I came to college longing for missional service and medical experience. Finding out about GMMA might’ve been the second best thing after committing myself to Christ. As a freshmen, I saw God work in pre-health students through prayer and service and I am reminded that being a Christian pre-med is possible here at UT. GMMA bridges the challenging rift between medicine and faith so beautifully not only through mission trips, but also through a loving family. Together, we are still running towards our Father with a servant heart. I am so glad to have found a home with GMMA.
I remember joining GMMA because I felt like I needed to do more clinical experience and do missions, and GMMA could check both of those things off. But God, through GMMA’s worship and prayer and Christ-centered community, has repeatedly pointed me back to the greater purpose of serving and loving others for Him and not ourselves. Through missions and getting to know our professional medical and non-medical mentors, GMMA also shows me how our faith can move though our future careers when we are intentional and prayerful. If you’re interested in exploring more about integrating faith in career and using career for God’s kingdom, GMMA will be a great org for you too!
