Be ye transformed….a Savior is born!


As people around the world celebrate the birth of Jesus, I pray that you will find joy and peace in the Christ child. I am thankful that the scripture tells us how the young Jesus “
increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God” as He transformed to do the will of the Father.

Christian Veterinary Mission (CVM) comes alongside veterinary professionals in their transformation to serve Jesus through CVM – first as students, then professionals with opportunities to serve in short-term missions and as long-term Field Workers. CVM is uniquely positioned to help transform their relationship with Christ so that they may do the good work that God has prepared for them in advance. (Ephesians 2:10)  

I want to share a testimony from Dr. Sara Phipps, CVM Field Worker in Bolivia, on how God transformed her to serve Christ through CVM.


“I started my journey with CVM as a vet student. At the time I was married with a small child and had become a believer three years prior. I knew I needed Christian support and thankfully found it through the CVM fellowship and many Christian faculty that supported us. My first introduction to missions was when an advisor suggested that I go to Paraguay to assist a CVM Field Worker. I first thought, “Who, me?  I’ve never traveled, and I have a child and no money!” Of course, I later learned that God provides in miraculous ways when He asks, “Who will I send?” and you respond, “Send me!”

From that point on I fell in love with missions. I knew that this was what I was created to do, even if it was not yet in God’s timing. I was blessed to work for a group of Christian partners after graduation, and I took advantage of every opportunity to go on mission trips through CVM. When I later had more income and flexibility, I began serving twice a year on short-term trips to Vietnam, Uganda, Mexico, Venezuela, Bolivia, and to the Navajo Nation. In addition, CVM encouraged me to explore new sites and coordinate new trips with international affiliates. I was able to take my boys abroad at young ages so they could see and experience with me the enormity of God’s kingdom. 

At home, I’d started a CVM professional group. I had given up on my dream to serve long-term, but after a painful divorce, God ignited that desire in my heart again. When I met my current husband, Jason, I shared during our first conversation that I was called to serve in missions long-term, and unless he, too, felt called, there was no future for us. Praise the Lord that while on a mission trip to Ghana, God opened Jason’s eyes and called him to serve long-term also! The intimacy and love we received from CVM staff and fellow members cemented our calling and our future.  We both heard God say, “Who will I send?”, and we responded, “Send us!”

As we enter the season of giving, we ask that you prayerfully consider a year-end gift to help in the transformation of those like Dr. Sara Phipps to share Christ’s love through veterinary medicine. 

Thank you for your continued support! We wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
