The Continuation of God’s Path by Mary Lam

“When I left Regent three and a half years ago I plunged back into the business world, first as a financial analyst for the government, then as an Administrative Manager for a small manufacturing company, where I stayed for three years. Meanwhile, for the last five years, I have been involved with Joy Fellowship, a church for people with mental and physical disabilities. It was through my steadfast involvement with these folks that I discovered my spiritual poverty, and learned about love and community. These people have deeply impacted the way I view people’s gifts, and as a result I found God impassioning me to interweave my business skills with special needs people. Shortly after coming to this realization, I resigned from my job and enrolled in a four-month intensive Resident Care Aide program at Langara College. My desire is to be properly trained in basic care-giving skills fro the elderly and people with disabilities, and to gain a better understanding of the health care system at a grass roots level. Although this decision appears to be radical, I can see now that it is not a career change, but a continuation of the path God has been leading me on . At the end of the program, I will be searching for a job. I hope to find work in the accounting and administrative field of a non-profit sector, in particular, working with organization that take an interest in people with disabilities.”
