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.
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!
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!
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.
Living for God every day comes with its difficulties and struggles, especially for me. With a weak spirit, I originally came to GMMA to satisfy my desire for an organization that would help with gaining medical experience. However, in GMMA, I found a community that continuously reminds me of our true goal: to always live for Christ. Through prayer, service, and a caring family, GMMA has helped me grow in my faith, accept my shortcomings, and witness the beautiful balance between faith and healthcare. Through the hardships of life, we will keep moving forward on the path God has set for us. I look forward to seeing what He has in store for GMMA!
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.
Through GMMA, God has shown me how consistent and overwhelming His love is. I initially joined GMMA because I knew that I have a passion for serving others. And through this community, He made it clear for me that He gave me a heart for sharing His love and grace. He has also blessed me with brothers and sisters who come together for the same purpose—working for Christ and caring for one another. Building Christ-centered relationships and praising the kingdom of God through GMMA has been one of my biggest joys and blessings in college. The welcoming and loving environment of GMMA has allowed me to reflect on my faith and become more intimate with God. I am excited to see where God will take us through the organization in the future!
Since being a part of GMMA, I have been able to be surrounded by a community of awesome people who encourage me to lead a life that glorifies God. My GMMA family has inspired me to glorify God not only in my school but in all other areas of my life. I have always been overwhelmed by how supportive everyone is and how everyone encourages each other to be the best Christian that they can be. My GMMA community has not only helped me through college, but has served as an example of what good Christians look like. I learn more and more about God as I continue to serve in GMMA. I am excited to see how God can work through all of us in the upcoming year and beyond.
