A Summer in Swaziland: An Intern’s Excitement By: JD Murphy

Last summer was my first trip to Swaziland and my first time serving with Heart for Africa. I had served on several mission trips to Mexico, but during the other trips my heart had not been affected as much as it was while serving with Heart for Africa. Jesus showed me what it truly means to be humble. He showed me that a missions trip is not always about building something, but just about getting on your hands and knees and placing a new pair of shoes on a child’s feet or just playing with them and seeing them smile or hold your hand. I have always wanted to serve on a missions trip longer then two weeks and Jesus has blessed me with this amazing opportunity. I am looking forward to getting to experience a long term missions trip and witnessing what other lessons God plans to show me this summer in Swaziland. I have also prayed about serving as an intern this summer to see if Jesus is calling me to serve Him as a missionary and I am looking forward to Him speaking to me while I serve in Swaziland. Since coming home from my trip last summer Jesus has filled my heart and head with the memories from my trip everyday. Until then I count down the days till I bored the plane and head to Swaziland, the place that truly changed my heart and my life.
