08 Mar Employee Spotlight: Angela Confer
Began working at Blessings International:
If you had to compare yourself to a TV-show character, who would you be, and why?
If I had to compare myself to a TV show character, I would say Temperance “Bones” Brennan from the show Bones. We are both introverted, quiet, and love to do research.
Describe the part you play at Blessings:
My job here at Blessings is to repackage and label medicines so they are ready to be shipped to our customers.
What is your favorite aspect of your job?
Something I love about my job is that each day is a little different, but what I love most is knowing that the medicines that I bottle and label are going to help people all over the world that are in need.
Where have you served in a missional capacity?
I have never served on a mission trip, but I hope that one day I will get the opportunity to.
Where/How would you like to serve in the future?
I would love to serve in Italy or in the United States on a medical mission trip or a building project. I love to be hands-on and I really enjoy helping people. My husband and I went to Italy for our honeymoon and fell in love with the people, the culture, and the history there. So one day I would like to go back and volunteer.
What was your last staff devotional about?
My last staff devotional was shortly after the new year began so I read a devotional about the joy of new beginnings and taking notice of all the beautiful creations that God has put here for us to enjoy.
What is your best memory here at Blessings?
I have lots of wonderful memories here at Blessings, but if I had to choose one, I would say St. Patrick’s Day. We celebrate a little differently here at Blessings International. On that day we gather for breakfast. However, Barry and the managers cook and serve the food to the rest of the staff. It’s a day for them to show their gratitude towards us. It’s a fun day full of laughter and fellowship. Oh, and lots of green pancakes!
