Hey! My name is Yamile (Yah-Mi-Leh) but my friends call me Yami.
I was born in the Dominican Republic and I moved to the United States when I was seven years old. I technically was not brought up in church by my immediate family but I was brought up in church because the Lord pursued me since I was a little girl. I would sneak to a pentecostal church in front of my house at the time. As I grew up, any chance that I got to be in church I took. I felt safe at church.
In 2015, I attended a youth group with one of my high school friends and my life was radically changed. I finally gained language as to why I loved being at church so much. It was after that night, at youth group, when I began to grow in my personal relationship with God and never been the same since. As I grew in relationship with God, I got involved in the church, I joined a campus ministry in college and I started to lead worship. I am now a part of Circuit Riders and serve as a full time missionary with Black Voices Movement.
Circuit Riders is a grassroots missions movement (empowered by YWAM) with a mission to save the lost, revive the saved, and train them all. Our focus is university and high school campuses starting in America, and reaching across the globe.
Within Circuit Riders I have the privilege to serve the Black Voices movement, with the mission to empower young Black leaders to walk in their Christ centered calling, expression, and purpose.
My heart's desire is to see young people know their original design in Christ and radically pursue Him first. I want to see revival in the inner cities, and missionaries sent from the hardest and darkest places.
Thank you for partnering with me as I reach my generation!
