Hey Friends & Family!!!
As all of you know, I’m doing a Discipleship Training School with YWAM at the University of the Nations here in Kailua-Kona!
Jesus has opened so many doors for me to even be here, and the prayers sown by everyone has blessed me so so greatly. We are seeing the absolute outpouring of the Holy Spirit here & we’re pressing into the throne room every day to grow in intimacy with our Lord Jesus & to also prepare our hearts for outreach!!
This past Friday, our leaders gave us a “long list” of 18 different outreach locations and we were given 3 hours to pray and ask God which 3 countries we were being called to. We were also asked to list one top preference.
I called my parents and asked them to pray with me and to text me in an hour to see if our hearts were aligning with what God was speaking to me! As it turned out, they each texted me separately and we all agreed on two out of three and we were unanimous on the first choice!
A Birthday Wish of Biblical Proportions!
Psalm 2:8 says
“Ask me, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance
and the ends of the earth as your own possession.”
If we read this verse in context, we see that God is challenging His Son to make very special birthday wish: the nations of the earth! (see verse 7). And the amazing thing is Jesus turned right around passed the challenge forward to us! (see Matthew 28:18-20.)
“I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
For my Birthday this year… I am asking the Lord to send me to the nations! More specifically, here is the short list of three that I came up with:
FIRST CHOICE: Albania, FOLLOWED BY: 2. Kenya and 3. Nepal (w/IRIS ministries)
God is good!! I really hope to reach the Albanian people with the good news of my sweet Jesus!!! Albania was actually an atheist nation for decades before they opened up in the 90’s— & now there is a deep hunger for truth like they’ve never seen before!! The harvest is PLENTIFUL, but the workers are few!!! (Mathew 9:37).
In order to be sent out for outreach— I need to raise another $2500 to cover my outreach fees!! $1500 is due on November 28th & we leave the country on December 23rd!!! (right before Christmas).
Instead of birthday gifts, I’d love it if you partner with me in making this dream of spreading the love of Jesus to other nations come true. You can do so in a number of ways by clicking the DONATE button below.
From the core of my heart to yours!!
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have poured into my life with prayer and finances. As a “faith missionary” all of my financial support comes from the generous donations—whether through a “one-time” gift or monthly offering— of people who believe in what I am doing. UPDATE: I have a total of $2500 remaining on my outreach fees, $1500 due by the end of November. Your prayers and support are greatly appreciated!
