Hi. I’m Anna and I am a medical student at the University of Birmingham just about to start 4th year after a year intercalating in Public Health. I’ve been at St John’s since starting university and am involved in the worship band and leading a youth cell group.
Since I was very young, God has laid overseas mission work on my heart. I am excited to have joined a new course run by CMF (Christian Medical Fellowship) called International Track which is an 18 month part-time programme for medical students and newly qualified doctors and nurses who want to explore medical mission further. The course consists of five day sessions at the CMF office with missionary speakers, two days at the CMF Developing Health Course and a weekend at All Nations Christian College. In August 2018 we have the opportunity to attend one of two mission trips to either Uganda or India. We are also assigned a mentor who will meet with us throughout the course to think through and pray into where God might be leading us. I attended the first day on 20th May and I felt so welcomed. I’m really excited to journey on the rest of the course!
Please pray that God would use this opportunity to speak to me about where he might be leading me on mission in the future, for a supportive fellowship to be built with the other participants, for the relationship with my mentor and for God’s plans and purposes to be brought to fruition.
