Old friends: Jamie Dungca

This term, we’re going to find out what some of the students who left SKG last year are up to. Do pray for them as we hear what’s going on, and we hope that their experiences will help us know what to expect when we move on from student life.

Jamie, what have you been up to the last term?

Over the past summer I moved back to Southern California and worked on my Master’s thesis for four months.  It was based on printed images in art from the Book of Revelation and the Apocalypse.  Thankfully, I just received a confirmation that I passed the requirements.  Praise God!  I’ve also been job hunting like crazy and a few friends from London have come out to California to visit or study.  It has been a joy having familiar faces come see my hometown!

What have been some of the challenges?

Some of the biggest challenges have probably been meeting deadlines and working under a lot of researching pressure while finishing my thesis. I’ve also been struggling to find work, as unemployment rates are still high.

How did your time at SKG equip you for what you're doing now?

My time at CCM in a SKG was extremely valuable in helping me realize the fundamental basics and non-complicated nature of my faith.  I have been a Christian for the majority of my life and it is always important to reflect back on the simplicity of our faith. Remembering and keeping our focus on Christ and His love for us is all we need in any circumstance or situation.  Currently, I have held onto the truth that God’s timing is everything.  When holding onto His timing the concept of patience often comes a lot easier than we sometimes think.

Is there anything you want to say to the current students?

Just want to send an extra shout out to my SKG group and let them know I am thinking of them!  Lots of love to you all!  I also want to send encouragement to those starting or finishing their time at university.  Those years spent in studies go by so quickly, and they are often some of the most important formative years we have.  Take advantage of the opportunities and time you have, including connecting with fellow students and groups.  Take time to explore what you want to do in the future and pray about it! Don’t rush and miss out on what you can enjoy as you go through each day.   Rely on Christ in everything…He will always be faithful to you.
