About Josiah

The older I get, the more I realize how beautiful and loving my Savior really is. Growing up, I was brought to church by my parents and heard a lot about Jesus. I was very young (about 4 years old), when my dad explained to me that I was a sinner and that I couldn't do anything myself to get to God. I trusted in Jesus to be my Savior right there, but I certainly didn't always live like I really believed it. Going through middle and high school, I tried finding my identity in pleasing other people, which left me feeling empty, alone, and hopeless. But even through the darkness God was still working in me. In 10th grade (if I remember correctly) I had a class on World History, which had a significant section on South Asia. I learned all about the staggering amount of souls in that area and I could just sense the spiritual darkness there by watching documentaries and videos. My best friend during this time was also from South Asia, so I felt like God was trying to tell me something. It is my dream to travel to there, learn the culture, and make an impact with the good news of Jesus Christ! Before I do that, however, I want to learn more about how missionary life really looks and what it takes to love people of a different culture, so I'm very excited to be ministering in Taiwan for the next 2 years! I believe that God will use me mightily and that he will shape me to look more like Jesus each day!

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 - "Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
