Mackenzie is a young professional working as a biological and agricultural engineer in Raleigh, NC. She has a God-given passion for water and a heart for the global water crisis. Ever since learning about the crisis in high school, she has felt called to play a role in its resolution. While working as an intern for Water Mission in Charleston, SC during one summer in college, her passion grew. Today, she is learning to let go of control and allow God show her how He will use this passion for His glory as she navigates the hills and valleys of post-graduate life.
IF YOU HAVE STRUGGLED TO DETERMINE YOUR NEXT RIGHT STEP, THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.
In our conversation, Mackenzie shares some staggering data about the global water crisis and how this knowledge has shaped her life decisions so far. She has some big takeaways from attending Camp Well in the fall, including the reminder to just keep taking the next right step. If you’re feeling stuck in knowing what that next step is for you and your dream, Mackenzie can relate. Prayer has played an important role for her in dealing with those feelings, and her enthusiasm to just keep going will encourage you to do the same.
Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
