“It was through SCF that I learned how possible it was to lead a Gospel-centered life while still fulfilling one’s responsibilities as a medical student and physician. For the first time in my life, I heard stories from highly accomplished, intelligent physicians who could empathize with my dilemma. The Christian role models through the ministry encouraged me not to neglect work for the sake of God but rather to work hard for the glory of God. Their words of wisdom helped me see that choosing to study instead of going to a church event did not necessarily mean that I was less faithful. They taught me that I could follow Christ and still work passionately, that faith and work did not have to conflict. With that understanding, I now feel confident about my faith journey as I transition into residency training. No matter what tasks I will be doing, I can do them for the glory of God, and I thank Southwestern Christian Fellowship for teaching me that truth.”
