Hey friends and family, welcome to my first newsletter!
I have some awesome news! I have applied and been accepted to the Calvary School of Missions this summer which will be held in various locations throughout Mexico! This is a 6-week missions training course where I will learn all about what God has called me to do with my life…MISSIONS! I am super excited to learn all about missions from God’s Word and hear practical tips from missionaries.
Last year I went to part of the Calvary School of Missions (CSOM) with my Dad, and this is where I realized, through the Word of God, that everyone is called to missions in one way or another but I only got a small taste of what I will be learning at CSOM 2021. There are several verses that tell us to be missionaries, one example is Mark 16:15, “And He (Jesus) said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Like Paul, God has put the desire in my heart to be a missionary somewhere where people have never heard the gospel. “And so I have made it my aim to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build on another man’s foundation.” I am training for this calling by immersing myself in my church (CCSG) and doing everything I can do to be trained up and ready whenever the Lord calls me to go. In addition, I am interning with Saving Grace World Missions and I am part of a class where I teach the Bible every week and am critiqued by pastors.
We are all called to be missionaries in some way; that doesn’t mean we all move to another country and plant a church but there are several ways all of us can participate in this. During CSOM, my fellow students and I will have opportunities to be part of missions by preaching the gospel at several outreaches. You have an opportunity to be part of missions by partnering with me through prayer and financial support. I need to raise $2,300 to pay my tuition for this 6-week course and I ask that you would prayerfully consider partnering with me. Philippians 4:17 “Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account.”
- That the Lord would provide finances for CSOM
- That I would be able to retain Knowledge of the Word
- That I would be a bold witness of Christ now and at CSOM
