Murfreesboro, TN | Samford University, Freshman | Nursing
Hey guys! My name is Jordan Simpson! Although I was born in Florida, I've spent my whole life growing up in the great state of Tennessee. Murfreesboro to be more exact. I've spent the past year as a freshman at Samford University studying to be a nurse. This intentional community is where I first heard about the amazing organization Choose to Invest. After much time in prayer, I decided to go for it and apply to be a Journey intern. With this summer, I feel the Lord is calling me to an even deeper dependence on Him, and the opportunity to experience a freedom I never could imagine. I'm so pumped to learn and grow from not only the community I find in Kenya but from my wonderful teammates and leaders as well. I'm ready to watch Jesus rock some worlds and hope you are too!

My heart is one for missions. There's something incredible and eternal about reaching past country boarders, cultural differences and the fact that I don't speak a lick of Swahili to get to the heart of serving the Lord's people. I love the honest work that Journey is doing in Kenya, and I CANNOT wait to join these people and this organization to be the very best hands & feet of God that I can.I'm excited to see an ounce of creation that I haven't seen yet. I'm excited to pour into these Kenyans until they're overflowing. I'm excited to sings songs and laugh laughs and rejoice with some of God's sweet, sweet children. I'm excited to dive into the Grand Adventure that the Lord is orchestrating in Africa. I'm also excited to rely on dry shampoo more heavily than I ever have before.
