Trying A New Adventure - Annette Wells

Hi! I thought for my first blog post I should introduce myself, and tell you why I said I would be willing to write some blog posts for Atlantic Baptist Women.

As you can see, my name is Annette Wells. I currently live in Prince Edward Island, but I grew up in Ontario. Church, and therefore learning about God, Jesus, and the Bible, have been part of my life for about as long as I can remember. 

Missions has been an important part of my life experience too. One of my earliest memories is praying for a missionary from our church when I was about 4 years old. She was a missionary in Ecuador. I don't remember now what it was she was doing, but I am pretty sure it was with a mission radio station.

I served for seven summers as a "Summer Missionary" with Child Evangelism Fellowship -- most in Ontario, but one summer I went overseas with CEF. I felt God's call on my life to serve him from quite a young age, and investigated if He was calling me to serve as a missionary too. I spent three and a half months in Zambia many years ago now (maybe I will tell you just how long in another post.) That time lead me to get my Bachelor of Education and Teaching degree, but eventually I did not go to the mission field

After I moved to PEI, I felt God's push/call to become a pastor -- not something I would have thought possible when I was younger! -- While I have not been serving on an overseas mission field, missions has still been very important to me.

I appreciate all that Atlantic Baptist Women does to promote missions and mission awareness here in Atlantic Canada. I have also loved getting to know more about Canadian Baptist Ministries and the different projects that Staff are involved in.

Just recently I went with a team from my church here (First Baptist in Charlotetown) to Cuba, where CBM is partnered with the Fraternity of Cuban Baptist Churches. It was a "new" adventure for me -- one that felt right, like I was continuing with something I had done many years before. Getting there wasn't always easy, but God calls us to new adventures from time to time.

I see this blog as a new adventure too -- an opportunity to share with you some of what is going on in my life. Please feel free to comment and to ask questions. And please remember I am new to this. Hopefully I can improve and learn to add new things as things progress.
