My name is Ahna Cameron. I am currently working at a pro-life nonprofit called Save the Storks as a Social Media Assistant and Event’s Assistant. As much as I love fighting for and celebrating life and have enjoyed my time at Save the Storks, I have always been extremely interested in and drawn to the medical world. I got my foot in the door by receiving my phlebotomy certification and hope one day to further my education in the medical field.
In 2019, I signed up to become a student at YWAM through their medical Discipleship Training School (DTS). YWAM stands for Youth with a Mission. They’re goal is to equip and send people passionate for Christ throughout the nations to make Him known. Every YWAM team that is sent out leads with the purpose of “meeting people’s real needs with the love of Jesus”. While training through YWAM, I spent three months diving into the Word, growing my faith with the Lord, and developing the tools spiritually as well as medically to help on a medical mission trip in Battambang, Cambodia for two months. My life was changed immensely through this experience, as it gave me a sharp and clear new perspective on life, a deeper gratitude for God, and a broadened appreciation for the power of faith to work in people’s lives in tangible ways.
I am honored to have been asked to help lead the medical DTS this upcoming year. I am excited to encourage and push young adults to seek out God and His desire for their life through medical missions. I am passionate about coming alongside the students as they take five months to fill their lives with life giving lectures, worship, training, prayer and hands on service in places where it is greatly needed.
