Hi guys, I am Blessing Mpeta from Mangochi, Malawi. I am 20 years old and I am the third born in a family of six kids. l love my family so much!
I am very excited to be an intern this year! Through this internship, God is doing a lot of things in my life. I have realized my true identity and to be defined by WHO GOD SAYS I AM. My identity is not what people say about me, because the one who made me tells the truth about me. These core truths can be found in the word of God, the bible. I am also learning that it is very important to confess these core truths to ourselves in our daily life, and remind ourselves of them when we fall down, get lonely, or anything that contradicts the Word of God. When we confess truth about ourselves, we gain new strength.
My main challenge during this internship is that sometimes I feel lonely and out of place. However, God is speaking to me and showing me how much he loves and cares for me through people around me. They are caring, concerned about others, and help to carry the burdens of others. I am so amazed with this family and I feel so at home here. We also have a lot of fun playing games, sports and music.
I have also realized that God desires relationship with us, and this is why he sent Jesus to die for us and take away the sin that separates us from him. He just wants to be with us, to share his love, joy and peace with us. In each of our lives, God gives us unique purposes. It is very important that we ask God how he wants each of us to serve him. I am so thankful for everyone who has taken part to teach me, fund me, and pray for me as I have found this sweet home in the 2017 Immersion Internship. I love you guys, receive a holy kiss from me, MUA!
