The lessons that I have been taught at The Well have prepared me to become a person of influence where ever I go, particularly in my workplace. I have led staff meetings, taught Bible studies, and have been interviewed in my company's magazine. I have done things that I never thought I could do. My parents are what I like to call Justice Fighters. Growing up if there was a situation that my parents felt was not just or right they were not afraid to speak up regardless of the possible repercussions. Even after seeing my parents boldly making the wrong things right I still did not have the confidence to do the same. At The Well my leadership taught me that Christians are not weak but are bold. Jesus was not weak but meek. He had all the power to demolish the world and its systems while he was on earth but he chose to allow His own creation to crucify him. Therefore if I am serving a king that powerful but meek I have a responsibility. As a missionary, I can not be fearful and weak. There are many people out there who need strong people to fight through resistance to meet their needs.
