For those interested in missions, it is important to remember that entering the mission field is a process. This week on Engaging Missions, Briel Kjetland shares about the work she’s doing to become a missionary associate. Since graduating from Trinity Christian, Briel has been planning and preparing for mission work.

When she was in high school, Briel heard God’s call to be a missionary. She’s been to many different countries and recently completed an internship overseas. On the show, she talks about the importance of obedience, discipleship, and remembering God’s faithfulness. When thinking about her future work as a missionary, Briel’s main goal is to bring glory to Jesus and obey Him always.
