MCML Podcast E35: Rebekah’s Story – The Spirit of Excitement
Rebekah is from Fort Worth, Texas. She is a nurse and she graduated from Texas Christian University. She attends the Christ Chapel Bible Church where she is involved in the young adult ministry. She volunteers there as a small group leader for the high school ministry. Rebekah is an ER nurse in the in-patient psychiatric care unit for adults and adolescents at the Mesa Springs Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas. Rebekah lost her mom when she was 11 years old. When she was in fifth grade, her mom was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. This was an intense period as she remembers seeing her mom going through a lot of treatment. Her mom passed away in just less than a year after her diagnosis. Rebekah remembers having such peace from the Lord and just remembering that her mom would be in heaven and she would see her there. God gave her faith at that moment.
Rebekah shares her experiences while on a mission trip to India. They set up medical clinics and went door to door to share the gospel with the women in the red light district. It was sobering for her to meet with the women and hear some of their stories. She talks about how open the women were to prayer. It was an amazing experience for her to go to the red light district where it is spiritually dark, but when she’s going in the presence of Christ, she feels protected and also appointed to be there. And that makes all the difference in the world.
For Rebekah, her life has been changed by missions by opening her eyes and by God showing her how to have a heart for the world. It is such a privilege and joy to use her gifts as a nurse to serve and bless those who need to hear about Him. We can be in prayer, help financially, and just be part of what He’s doing all over the world. Rebekah feels that God specifically continues to give her a heart for India.
When asked to describe her mission trip experience in one word, Rebekah says, “exciting”. She has had the heart and desire to go for several years and it was definitely exciting for her when she finally got to go to India. It was also exciting for her to just be on the mission field and share the gospel, serve at the clinics, and touch lives at the same time. Rebekah also encourages those who are thinking about going on a mission trip when the opportunity to go returns. She says to just prepare for God and to be able to touch lives through His spirit in ways that they would never expect.
