Sierra Porter: Salta, Argentina

My name is Sierra Porter and I am so excited to have the opportunity to join a TAG trip. I have grown up in the Nazarene church for most of my life. My mom just recently became a full-time children’s pastor and my step-father has been a youth pastor for about 8 years now. In saying this, many doors have been open throughout my life that may not have been otherwise. I have had the chance to go on multiple mission trips, my favorite so far being to Puerto Rico. God has really grown me and given me opportunity to minister to others. My relationship with God has continued to get stronger, especially since being at Trevecca. Since being here, I have had less negative distraction and have felt encouraged in my faith by friends and social activities. Even though I miss all the involvement and leadership roles I had in my home church, I am learning to use this time to take a step back and focus on my personal relationship with Christ. 

I am looking forward to going on this mission trip to Argentina for multiple reasons. One being God has called me into ministry. As of now, I feel that I am called into medical missions and am excited to see what these are like. Before being accepted for this trip, I was feeling slightly discouraged due to  my challenging classes. I was praying and asking if I was really making the right choice. The next day, I received a letter saying I was accepted for this TAG trip and if felt as if God was confirming and encouraging me to continue the path that I am on.  Another reason I am looking forward to participating in this trip is because I love serving others and seeing how God can use us to reach people of different cultures and backgrounds. It breaks my heart to see people hurting and lost and to have an opportunity to help gives me a joy that I can’t explain. I feel that going on this trip will strengthen my walk with Christ and prepare me for later in life as I continue to follow the call he has for me.
