Hello! My name is Lyric Tharp and I am a full time missionary with YWAM (Youth with A Mission). YWAM's mission statement is to bring people together to train and help develop their relationship with God and others, to help them find the purpose God has placed in their lives, and to empower others to live like Christ no matter where God will place them. We are a community that lays our lives before the cross daily. It's His love that drives us to fulfill the promises of God and share the gospel to ALL!
This is my very first year giving my full YES into my calling as a missionary. I dipped my toes in when I applied for DTS (Discipleship Training School) with Circuit Riders in Huntington Beach, California this last spring, not knowing God was going to completely interrupt the plans I had for my life in the best way possible. The SECOND I started my DTS, God met me, changed my heart, my intentions, and my purpose. I was swooned by him. I thought I knew His love, but I had never felt it the way I did the moment I let go of my life and fully submerged giving it ALL to Christ. He gave me this hunger to live a life dedicated to meeting the needs of the lost and making heaven crowded! I got to experience unity like NO OTHER amongst my peers while preparing for missions and just bringing revival and restoration to the city and our lives! During my DTS missions trip I've witnessed healings, breaking of chains, an outbreak of revival and JOY, and SO MUCH MORE!
I recently have received news that I have been given the opportunity to partake in a secondary school with YWAM in Rogaland, Norway. Starting this September, I'll be taking a three-month Biblical Core Course with an optional missions trip to Israel, where we also are able to firsthand experience biblical history! During this time, I will be studying the Bible, learning how to use it in daily life, preaching, bible studies, etc. and serve both local and global communities through evangelism, training, and mercy ministry.
It would be such a blessing if you would prayerfully consider to invest in me as a missionary and sow into the great commission! The harvest is ready to hear the name of JESUS AND BE SET FREE!
