Hello! My name is Ryanne Cathleen Hostetter!

I am from Belgrade, Montana and I am headed to Kona, Hawaii in October 2024 to participate in a Youth With A Mission (YWAM) program called Fire and Fragrance Discipleship Training School (DTS).

The first 3 months in Hawaii will be the lecture phase. I will learn more about the Gospel and grow in my relationship with Jesus. For the final 3 months, I will be separated into a smaller group of people to go on outreach. This could be anywhere in the world and I won’t know where that will be until after a week or so of being in Hawaii. In choosing the Fire and Fragrance DTS, I have a few choices for gifting focuses or tracks like media, music, dancing, farming, and fitness. The track I am choosing is media.

I have always made it a goal to have my own business but I have struggled to understand what that might look like. For quite some time, I have loved the idea of being a content creator, specifically on YouTube. Along with that, God has put being a missionary on my heart for several years but, until I discovered YWAM, I hadn’t felt like any missions opportunity that came my way applied to what I needed to experience. I feel God is calling me to reach my generation of technology by being a treasure amongst all the junk.

I don’t know what my life will look like after this experience. God’s plan is always greater than my own. I am sitting on the edge of my seat in anticipation of what God will do in my life through this program.

However, I am in need of people to partner with me through finances and prayer. I have saved enough for the tuition but not to fund my expenses of going and being there for 6 months. Ideally, I would like to reach the amount of $2,000 - $4,000 more for monthly expenses and costs for travel there and back and even necessary equipment that I will need to get such as luggage, insurance, plane tickets, some occasional off-campus meals, and supplies for self-care.

If you would like to commit to being a monthly supporter or giving a one-time donation, please prayerfully consider giving to God's call on my life and reach out with any questions. I would be so blessed to have you be part of my journey!

Thank you!
