Hi Friends and Family!!
Thank you for the ways you have poured into me, loved me, shaped me, encouraged me, prayed for me, and supported me. I realize how abundantly blessed I am with the community the Lord has graciously surrounded me with. I am so thankful for you!
My plan after graduation was always to head out to Grand Canyon University. Until five weeks ago my bags were about to be packed to head to Arizona. My sister and many of my friends were already there and I was excited to make new friends in pursuit of a college degree. Then all of a sudden my plans changed. With an idea from my dad, the Lord brought together several things. After more research and lots of prayer, the bags that were heading to Arizona are being filled with warm clothes (and wetsuits) for NORWAY!!
I have decided to take a gap year with YWAM Rogaland before heading to GCU in the fall of 2023. It's one of many Youth With A Mission bases in the world that exist to, "know God and make Him known." YWAM is a group of motivated young people who want to see this generation encounter the love of Jesus and then carry His love to the ends of the earth. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I feel so blessed to take part in it.
In Norway, I'll be:
Joining the Wind and Waves Discipleship Training School (DTS) from mid September-mid February
Spending eleven weeks in a lecture phase studying the Bible, deepening my relationship with the Lord, kite surfing, surfing, and skating
Traveling with the team to various surf locations around the world doing outreach
Sharing the gospel at the Redbull Ragnarok event
YWAM is living to see our generation saved and sent! I'm so excited to be part of this mission.
With that, I am writing to invite you to join me in this mission with your prayers. I will be cherishing and leaning on every prayer! Prayer is not the only thing we can do, but it is the first thing we must do.
I also welcome financial support, if you are able. 100% of the money I raise will support living costs and outreach expenses. All gifts through this page will receive a tax deductible receipt.
I am confident this is God's plan for my life. He has placed a calling in me to spread his Word and I can't wait to live that out in Norway and beyond! I am expectant, full of faith, and can't do it without you. I look forward to the special ways the Lord will continue to use us together to broaden His kingdom!
