GMMA has helped me rediscover my passion for the Lord. Throughout college, I feel like I was a very complacent Christian, just going through the motions of going to church and serving in church. After joining GMMA and going on the Summer 2023 mission trip to Honduras, I was able to experience the greatness and goodness of His love. During this mission trip, God healed my broken heart, brought me a community of brothers and sisters to rely on, and gave me a calling to serve in GMMA and missions. Being able to serve on the mission field and have time to grow spiritually with my mission team was a life changing experience I will never forget. This was a huge turning point in my faith and gave me a passion to serve the Lord and His people through missions. Through this organization, I hope to serve His people with a humble heart and become a reflection of His love to pour out onto His people. I am so excited to see what God has in store for GMMA and how He will work through this organization!
I am not sure if it’s because GMMA is the first school organization I joined at UT Austin but GMMA feels like my family on campus. When I heard about the mission statement and the thought that I could one day serve in mission trips, it instantly made me want to join GMMA. I met my closest friends and mentors who share common goals and interests at GMMA. Although I attend my local church on Sundays, general meetings and prayer meeting once a week remind me that He is always with me whenever I feel down during the school week. Most importantly, GMMA taught me how to receive His unconditional love through the community and provided me the ways to give back those love.
GMMA means community, everlasting love, and faithfulness. I have met so many people who have reached out to me and made it feel safe to be vulnerable. I have grown so much with GMMA than I ever have before. I love the people in GMMA because I can see the passion and the fire they have for Christ. I have learned that God loves me and He adores you.
I first joined GMMA due to my uncertainty of what I wanted to do with my future career in the healthcare field. However, I can say that God has truly worked through me during my time here by allowing me to experience opportunities that I would have never been able to find elsewhere. From going on my first mission trip to Matamoros, Mexico, to becoming an officer, none of this was my plan. Being in GMMA has shown me that God provides abundantly and he will continue. Having a community where everyone is growing and challenging each other has allowed my faith to grow and have the people to pick me up when I stumble. I am able to see how great God’s love is for his people when serving his community.
Entering college, I had a strong desire to become involved in various organizations that were aligned with my pre-medical aspirations. This led me to join GMMA. In my freshman year, despite my worldly ambitions of gaining medical experience, I felt incredibly blessed by God. His enduring love enabled me to discover a sense of community within this organization, and I truly believe that God strategically placed these individuals in my life as part of His divine plan. Going to Honduras mission trip this past summer had allowed me to know more about GMMA’s mission statement- building disciples of all nations. Through GMMA, I not only had the opportunity to serve Him in another country but I also received numerous blessings as He blessed me with Christ-centered friendships. GMMA has played a significant role in my spiritual journey, and I am grateful to be surrounded by like-minded individuals who share a common desire to serve His kingdom.
The UT Austin GMMA chapter was founded in 2015 under the guidance of Dr. Peter Chung and Dr. Yong Sik Kim. Our goal is to be witnesses to the light in our campus and in the mission field. Not only that, but through GMMA we plan to empower and provide networking for the students, and allow them to develop a God-centered lifestyle with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
