Sarah started working with SEAPC in the fall of 2015. She is the coordinator for the multiplication department. Sarah serves SEAPC on a daily basis through editing and proofreading digital and print content, curating the monthly magazine, acting as Matt’s assistant, and supporting the rest of the multiplication team as they share stories of lives changed through prayer.
Where was your first international trip? How old were you?
I traveled to Quebec City at 15 to participate in a French language immersion program, but my first trip outside of North America was at 18 when I went to Cambodia. The trip to Cambodia was through my youth ministry, but was in partnership with SEAPC. At the time, I couldn’t have imagined that I would end up working at SEAPC just five years later!
What initially inspired your heart for missions?
The first time I clearly and definitively heard the call of God into missions was as a student at a youth ministry retreat at 17. In the years since, it has truly been an adventure as I’ve worked to better understand what that looks like in my life, taking into account the gifts and abilities God has given me, and finally coming to the understanding that it’s not a one-size-fits-all calling. Today I view it as an honor to serve the men and women who are serving God around the world.
Where is the most memorable place you have prayer walked and why?
The most memorable place was probably a garbage dump in Phnom Penh, because I got to witness a teenager share the gospel and pray with an older woman who was living there.
