What a whirlwind of fun, challenges, pressing in, and trusting the Lord these last few weeks have been!
We’re now going into week 3 of our students being here. Week one was with Andy Byrd on Character of God and this past week we had Peter Louis from Upperroom speaking on Jesus and the Gospel. I saw so much breakthrough in so many of the students. I’m so expectant for what the Lord is doing in their lives! It is my greatest joy to see young women know who they are in Him!
The Lord was teaching me patience these last few months and that the key to their breakthrough would be love through patience. To celebrate the little things and love as He loves and the rest will come after! To be doing what the Lord has called me to and to know I’m walking in that, is the place the most peace is found!
What comes next is much outreach preparation! I along with my co leaders Connor and Heather are leading a team of 11 students to Japan and Taiwan for 3 months in December! YWAM Kona as a whole hasn’t been to Japan since 2013. We are going pioneering to build relationships and get to know the people. To show them who Jesus is through friendship and serving. Japan is only 1.5% Christian, yet it is a completely open country! I so look forward to being there being open to whatever the Lord may do!
I know the Lord is going to do wild things in these next few months during this time of training in Hawaii. And then for our time in Asia I felt the Lord say it’s going to be a time of the unexpected! Where we’ll have to completely rely on and trust Him!
I’m so thankful to have a Father in heaven who takes away all the worries of the world!
“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?”
As a whole I will need around $4000-$5000 for my time in Asia. If the Lord places it on your heart to sow into this time, the form is below.
Much joy and thanks ~Izzy
