Dear friends and family,
Hello, my name is Bentley Stone. I am 20 years old and grew up in San Diego, California. I have two brothers, Noah who is my older brother and Isaac my younger brother who is adopted from Uganda. My family has always had a heart for bringing the gospel to the whole world.
I am currently a full time missionary serving in YWAM, Kona. I have been a missionary now for two years and have been staffing with YWAM for a year. The Lord has put missions on my heart ever since I was eight years old. When I was little, my family was called to missions, serving in France along side churches, and that was where the Lord placed the seed of fulfilling the great commission within my very bones. There was no going back!
Over the past two years, the Lord has opened the door for me to minister to Muslims and refugees around the world through the ministry called YWAM. YWAM is an acronym for Youth With A Mission. Their mission statement is to know God and to make Him known. I started as a discipleship student. I am now a DTS (Discipleship Training School) staff member, equipping and leading teams around the world to share the gospel.
1 Corinthians 3:6-8 “ I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. He who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor.”
Everyone has a part to play. I would love for you to join me in this journey. If the Lord has put this on your heart, this is an opportunity to participate in the sharing of the gospel.
Here are two ways you can partner with what God is doing. Prayer is the number one fuel needed for power from the Holy Spirit, provision from Jehovah Jireh, and protection from God against the plans of the enemy. Another way you can partner is through financial aide via monthly support. This allows me to help raise up the next generations of young missionaries on the University of the Nations campus and send them around the world.
