Hello everyone! My name is Jamie Peruski.
I am on staff with Fire & Fragrance through Youth With a Mission (YWAM) in Kona, Hawaii. Fire & Fragrance is a school that disciples young adults into knowing God deeper and teaches students how to use their gifts and skill sets in making God known in nations all over the world.
In January of 2021 I was a student at Grand Valley State University. I had just been denied admission to my specific majors program and was asking God what I was supposed to do. I prayed for months before I heard anything. It was April 22nd when the Lord spoke with clarity saying He was going to send me out to the nations, that He was asking me to commit myself to being a missionary. I signed up for a Discipleship Training School (DTS) in Kona the following day.
I am excited and expectant for the next 2 years that I have committed to staff. I will be championing on other young adults in their missional calling, growing in leadership and intimacy with the Lord, and serving in every way possible. Staffing through YWAM is unpaid and I am stepping into being a full-time missionary. I am honored and humbled that the Lord wants to use me in this way. I know that as I serve, disciple, lead teams in the nations, and love this next generation, that God will be molding me into who He wants me to be. After my 2 years of staffing the goal is to be joining a team and going long term (10 years+) as a missionary in another nation.
As a full-time missionary I live completely off the Lord's provision and financial support of friends, family and strangers. By supporting me in prayer or financially you are helping the gospel reach some of the hardest, darkest, and unreached places. Not only that but the places close to home and to people you know and love deeply.
I know God will provide just what I need. So whether it be in prayer or financially, would you prayerfully consider joining my team of supporters?
