Hello dear friends and family!
I can’t believe that this month will be one year since I first heard Jesus prompt my heart to leave behind everything I have and “GO!” Initially, I tried to justify that what I was hearing was only coming from my own head, and wrestled with this idea for months. However, that still small voice in my heart persisted. As November 2016 rolled it’s way around, I couldn’t shake this drive in my soul so I prayed ALOT, did my research, talked to my mentors and finally applied for a Discipleship Training School through the global missions organization, Youth With a Mission (YWAM), in Ensenada, Mexico. Reflecting back, I distinctly remember sitting in my favorite coffee shop, my application filled out and ready to be sent. As I sat there staring at the submit button on my computer screen, my heart raced in anxiousness and yet, there too lingered a peace and I knew that this was exactly what I was being called to do. Fast forward 8 months later, and I’m back here in that very same coffee shop writing to you that I am moving to Ensenada, MEXICO to build homes for and love on the locals in this community!
In short, from September 2017 until February 2018, I will be attending this intensive 5 1/2 month school consisting of 3 months of classroom training in Ensenada where speakers from all over the world will come and give messages on topics ranging from Evangelism to Biblical Worldview! The remaining 2 1/2 months, my class and I will spent on outreach in either the Caribbean, Africa or Central America, blessing and loving on the locals of the cities we visit! I cannot even begin to explain how stoked I am to continue learning about Jesus and telling others about Him, overseas!
So, here’s where I need YOUR help! In order to attend my DTS, I am still working towards raising my financial support goal of $3,500! This cost will cover my food, housing and transportation needs during this season. Jesus has provided for me SO many times and I know He continue to be faithful. I trust Jesus 100% but also realize that I need some help reaching my financial goal!
If you would like to join my team whether that be financially or through prayer, it would be an honor to have you invest in me and my team as we GO!
I am jazzed to share this journey with you as it unfolds! Would you partner with me in prayer for provision over my funds and safety for the trip? If you feel lead to give, I have a few different support raising opportunities!
