My name is Matthew Begley. I am from Black Mountain, North Carolina, and I am 22 years old. I graduated from Davidson College this past spring with a Bachelor of Science in biology, and majored in music as well. I am looking forward to spending this next year discerning my call, while engaging purposefully with God’s children in Scotland. I understand that this period of service will be a challenging experience. I am grateful for this opportunity to broaden the limits of my world perspective and to learn much from living with fellow volunteers and working alongside the people in this distinctive community. I am hoping to use the gifts with which I have been blessed and the skills I have developed to facilitate the work of the Spirit through music and interpersonal connections.
