Hi friends! I'm Sarah Newhard, a full time missionary with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) in Kona, Hawaii.
I'm a part of a community called Fire & Fragrance, which is focused on training and sending Gen-Z to the nations to share the Gospel. We want to develop young leaders that carry fire in their hearts for Jesus that becomes the fragrance of Christ to the lost. We long to know God and make Him known throughout the whole world. We believe Jesus is the desire of the nations and only He can bring light and restoration to the darkest places.
A little over a year ago, I had an encounter with Jesus that entirely changed my life. In a moment He set me free from years of anxiety and depression, showing me a fullness of life and joy I had never known before. He began to stir my heart for more of Him, so this past January I did my DTS (Discipleship Training School) in Kona, and that's where Jesus truly set my heart on fire for missions. I had the opportunity to spend 3 months on outreach in Colombia, where I saw firsthand the power of the Gospel to bring freedom and healing to the lost and broken. During these past 6 months, I truly came to know that Jesus is worthy of everything and there's no sweeter place to be than in the center of His will for my life.
During my DTS, I felt the Lord calling me to come back and work on staff with YWAM, helping to disciple and equip other young people in their callings. So, this fall I'll be heading back to Kona where I hope to staff the next Fire & Fragrance school. Practically, this would look like 3 months of leadership training, 3 months of Lecture Phase and discipling students, and a 3 month outreach to another nation. On outreach I would be leading a group of students and putting into practice all of my training while partaking in a variety of ministry opportunities including bible distribution, evangelism, youth ministry, community development, and much more. I am so expectant for what the Lord wants to do in the nations and I believe He wants to use our generation to see the Great Commission fulfilled!
I've personally seen the power of the Gospel radically transform my life and set me free, and I believe God wants to do the same for all of His children. With all of that being said, I would be so deeply honored if you would prayerfully consider partnering with me to reach the nations with the love of Jesus.
He gave us everything! The least we can do is give Him everything in return! He's truly worthy of it all! May He receive the full reward of His suffering!!!
