MCML Podcast E14: Lyn’s Story – Living Sent with Urgency
Lyn is a recently retired career advisor from Fayetteville Tech Community College and an ordained chaplain. She has 3 adult children and 2 grandchildren and is a die-hard Atlanta Falcons fan. She is currently a mission director of Cliffdale Christian Center in Fayetteville NC with a bachelor’s degree in Social Work from South Carolina University and a master’s degree in Adult Education from George Mason. Lyn is a die hard Atlanta Falcons fan!
For many years now, Lyn has been going on mission trips around the world, from the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Ghana, and India. India holds a special place in her heart as this country managed to tug on her heartstrings and she has met so many amazing people there.
Her last trip was a 10-day trip where she got to work with young girls on campus. Four of her team members were even members of her church. She advocates, “Everyone can’t go but everyone can pray, some people can send and there are some people that can’t go”, and she advocates this to her church as well as emulate it in real life.
She also believes that one person can really change the world. When God puts you in a certain place, you have the ability to change that place and the people in it. This change is what will change the world. It might not be noticeable, not many people may know about it but God knows, the people whose lives have been influenced and changed would know. God is awesome as He guides us to places where we can use our skills and experience to help the people around us, just like how Lyn was able to use her skills and experience as an educator to help the people prepare for interviews and such during her mission.
Lyn believes that missions is her true calling and she loves it. She is even already starting to prepare for her 2020 trip. She believes that mission trips are great and designed to give a taste of what it would be like so people would know if it is their calling. That is why she wants to do more of it. Because to be really connected to the people and to be able to do the best we can, Lyn believes that staying longer is necessary as that would help become part of both the community and the culture.
Lyn’s story shows us how missions is everyone’s duty. We are all here to teach about God and guide our fellow brothers and sisters to God’s love. All of us have the heart of a servant just like Jesus Christ. We must not be disheartened if our efforts do not bear fruit immediately. What is important is that we have sown the seeds that will later bear fruit for God to pick.
