Hi! I am Claire Varda, a full-time missionary with YWAM's (Youth With A Mission) Learning Center in Kona, Hawaii.
I did my DTS (discipleship training school) with YWAM last year. This was a six-month-long school where three months were spent in Kona, Hawaii being trained and three months on the mission field (I was able to go to the Middle East!). During this time, my love and intimacy with the Lord grew and He gave me dreams of becoming a teacher full-time on the mission field.
The Learning Center (TLC) is a school for missionary kids at the YWAM base. Their mission statement is "teach kids in missions, training teachers in missions." This is an amazing opportunity to teach at TLC because it will equip me for my future missions work. TLC also will help launch me into full-time missions when the Lord calls me to go! This is not a season of waiting to go, but preparing to go international.
Everyone at YWAM is a volunteer which means no one is paid, even the teachers and staff. Along with teaching at TLC, I am attending college online through Southeastern Univerity to get a Global Education Degree.
With all of this said, I would love for you to partner with me in prayer! I ask that you pray that I follow the Lord's guidance and have clarity through this crazy busy season! I also ask that you would prayerfully consider partnering with the Lord's work of teaching children financially!
Thank you so much!
