My name is Elizabeth Anne Fish, and I am currently a junior at the University of Arkansas in Monticello. I have grown up in Sherwood Arkansas with both of my parents and my older brother. I always wanted to be a teacher growing up, but I wasn’t sure how God could use me. Summer of 2017, I was able to be a summer missionary for the North Pulaski Baptist Association. From this point on, I was able to see my calling to ministry. Throughout this summer ministry opportunity, I realized that God could use me as a Children’s Minister.I can work with kids and teach them about Jesus.
My freshmen year of college was an eye-opener for me. I was able to live with a sweet lady in Monticello. After living with her for 3 weeks, she passed away in a car accident. I was so blessed to have lived with this sweet lady and see how she loved the Lord. She was role model that touched my life more than she knew. I wanted to make the impact that she had made on everyone she spoke too. From this point on, my goal was to love others with the love of God. She was an awesome lady who loved everyone she met!
I pray that God will continue to use me to bring glory to Him. I am so thankful for everyone who has poured into my life. Now, I pray that I can help pour into others. I am so thankful for the opportunity to work through the Explore Your Call program again this summer! A quote that I cling to as I continue to unwrap my call to ministry is; “Ministry is not a job or a Sunday routine, it’s a privilege to be chosen and used by Jesus.”
