Watoto 360 was the beginning of my walk with God. I put my life on hold to travel over 10,000 km to Africa! It wasn’t an easy decision but, it will remain one of my best! I was stretched to try new things I would never have thought possible and surprised myself by finding strength.
The highlight of my experience was witnessing a diverse group of people unite to help one another flourish into the individuals God has called them to be.
I’ve had a lot of fun in Uganda; having to immerse myself in a new culture comes with challenges, but this experience was worthwhile for how much it grows you. I’ve formed new beautiful friendships, gained a sense of direction and, most importantly, witnessed significant growth in my faith. I had no idea how much Watoto 360 would impact my life!
Watoto 360 pushes you to be bold and to share the Gospel in whatever path God has planned for you. Dedicating six months of your time to focus on God gives you an opportunity to listen and discover His heart. My heart was expectant, and I was ready to learn! When I return to Australia, life will not be the same, and it’s because of what God is doing through Watoto 360.
