This is my final week working as Marketing Team Lead with VisionTrust. Though I’ll still be volunteering with the Global Health Team, it’s a bittersweet time as I reflect on how God first led me to the organization, the impactful lessons learned, and this new season ahead.
I’m standing at one of those cross points, a fork in the road. I’ve been here before—just over two and a half years ago.
“Jenna, quit your job,” God whispered. With weeks of great hesitation and moments of mounting anxiety, I agreed to obey with the assumption He’d quickly answer my next question: “Okay, so then what’s next Father?”
Unfortunately, He didn’t respond how I’d hoped—you know, with a concrete action step or door flung open. Instead He asked me: “Jenna, do you trust me?”
With a long pause and a shaky voice, “Yes, Lord.”
The following resulted in packing up my black VW Golf—affectionately named Alfie—and trekking across California, Nevada, Arizona, and into the state of Colorado. It led me graciously, miraculously to my current job.
Now with my time with VisionTrust concluding, the Lord in a similar fashion has proposed the very same question: “Jenna, do you trust me?”
With each faith-leap and life decision—whether excruciatingly painful or abundantly joy-filled—the pause in my response shrinks slightly. Why? Because He’s proven it again and again—we really can trust in His faithfulness. We really can believe in His great love for us. We really can know that He’s bringing the details of His grand story together.
So here’s to the sweet chapter the Lord has allowed me to walk out with VisionTrust—the transformed lives, the international travel, the widened worldview, the lifelong friendships, the incomprehensible growth. Here’s to the adventure ahead and that diminishing space between hesitancy and faith.
My final day with the VisionTrust Marketing team is Tuesday, May 31. On June 2, I will be traveling down to Lima, Peru, for two months of summer language school. Afterward, I’ll be pursuing a Master’s in International Development while continuing to volunteer with VisionTrust’s behavioral health team.
