For the majority of senior year, I thought I had my after high school plans set in stone. However, that all changed in January when God led me to an organization called Youth With A Mission (YWAM), which is a group that equips young people for mission work. After a few weeks of reluctance and many prayers, I felt deeply that the Lord was calling me to apply.
Now today, I'm thrilled to share that I was accepted into the program, and am currently attending a YWAM Discipleship Training School! Even though I was hesitant at first, I'm excited and confident in the knowledge that this is where God has called me.
The first phase of my training has consisted of an intense three months in Kona, Hawaii, where I've been diving into Scripture, deepening my relationship with Jesus, and learning how to evangelize. The second phase of the program involves three months of missions work somewhere around the world, where I'll be sharing the love of Jesus and serving those in need. I’ve been selected to be on a team that will be traveling to California, South Korea, and Japan, and I couldn’t be more excited!
In Matthew 28, Jesus tells his followers to "go and make disciples of all nations," and this command is precisely what YWAM is faithfully carrying out today as one of the largest missions organizations in the world. It's a daunting commission but I believe this calling is just as important in the year 2023 as it was when Jesus was on Earth. I've seen videos and heard stories of YWAM in action, so I know the amazing power of God is working through this organization in the nations.
This is why I’m so grateful for my Discipleship Training School, because I'm being equipped to go out and actually spread the Gospel just like Jesus commanded us to do!
All that being said, I’m still in need of prayer partners and financial support in order to go on outreach to the USA and Asia. I have $2,500 left to raise, and fully believe in the power of God to secure these funds. Donations will go directly toward tuition, travel, and living expenses.
Would you prayerfully consider partnering with me? If you're able, a donation of any kind would go a long way. And prayers for wisdom, growth, and strength also mean the world to me! Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I appreciate your support!
In Christ alone,
