In response to the essay prompt: "If you knew you could not fail as a leader, what would you attempt to do for Jesus?"
I am a firm believer that God equips His servants for the mission that He calls them to. I hope someday to be a calming and assuring presence for my patients during a time when they are suffering. Knowing that I could not fail as a leader, I would not be afraid to make the tough decisions that deeply affect the lives of those who entrust me with their health care. Knowing that Jesus would not allow me to fail as a leader, I would have the confidence to leave the United States and start a new life serving people of another country. I would work to heal physical bodies while pointing people to the only Physician who can bring ultimate healing to their lives.
