Grace De Haan
Hi! I am Grace De Haan, a full time missionary with YWAM Kona.
I have recently completed a Coaching Development Program with Respect the Corners through YWAM Kona. Through this program, I learned how to not only coach an individual in the sport of Crossfit but also how to disciple others into a relationship with Jesus through the realm of sport and fitness. During the last three months I also grew in my relationship with Jesus and becoming even more in awe of his wonder and beauty which makes sharing about him even that much easier than before!
While completing my Discipleship Training School earlier this year I realized God was inviting me into life as a full time missionary unto fulfilling the Great Commission like what Jesus says in Matthew 28:19-20 "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit; teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you." This has been a common theme throughout the past three months; thinking that our actions, thoughts, and prayers are unto greater things like eternity with Jesus.
"To know God and to make him known" is the core mission statement of YWAM and each session is aimed toward this goal. We believe there is nothing more important than having an intimate relationship with our Creator and to make his name known throughout all the nations. By partnering with Respect the Corners, I am able to follow in obedience to the word God has spoken over my life; to disciple women across the nations through the avenue of fitness.
Not only has God called me to disciple men, women, and children across the world, but he has called you into this lifestyle, too! Though we each have different roles to play, whether it is a sender, an intercessor, or a goer, we all play a part in loving God's children across the world. In a prayerful financial partnership with me, you will step into a role God may be calling you into as well as enabling me to pursue my role in revealing men and women's identities in Christ. I am thrilled about this next season and I cannot wait to partner with you through prayer and monthly support or one time gifts!
