In retirement, I am serving as a volunteer in mission in the Counseling and Career Services Office at Africa University. God isn't finished with me yet!My spiritual life has grown and deepened over the years as I continue to see God's hand at work, not only in my life, but also in the lives of others. I continue to seek God's forgiveness, love, and grace, even as I am called to share it with those I meet.”

William Wilson
US-2 Class 2011–2013

“The GLOBAL MISSION FELLOWS - US-2 experience led me to my call to full-time ministry as an elder in the United Methodist Church. It affirmed my gifts for this vocation and prepared me to think theologically about the world around me, especially in terms of assessing the needs of the community and speaking out against injustices in all forms. The experience also helped me gain financial aid for school expenses through scholarships and fellowships due to my service as a GLOBAL MISSION FELLOWS - US-2 missionary. I also benefited from the connections I developed while serving and continue to hold friendships with other missionaries and United Methodists around the country and the world.”
