I am Chelsea Houston, a missionary with YWAM (Youth with a Mission) in Kona, Hawaii!
Two years ago, I felt a nudge to quit my nursing job and train with YWAM to go to the nations long term. I first completed my Discipleship Training Program which laid the foundation of me understanding who Jesus made me to be! It changed my life and stirred inside of me the desire to see others set free! I, then, decided to staff the discipleship program where I was training others to walk in the identity that Christ calls them to walk in. Most recently, I completed a Discipleship Bible School where we studied the Bible front to back to better understand God’s word and His perfect, redemptive plan for humanity.
Ever since I was in 6th grade, I wanted to live in the nations as a full time missionary. I am in my 3rd year serving with YWAM, and I am so expectant! I met an incredible team here being sent to Indonesia and I decided to join them! My heart is specifically drawn to using the nursing skills that the Lord has given me to come along side woman prenatally, in labor, and postpartum to champion them. This is an incredible way to build relationship and create space to empower women to walk in the fullness that God created them to walk in. I don’t know exactly what this will look like long term, but I am so giddy to see how the Lord will use me in Indonesia.
My life is not my own and I want to see the people of Indonesia fall radically in love with the God who has changed my life completely.
