Dear friends and family,
This last month has been such a blessing, things have not gone according to plan, but the Lord was in it every step of the way. During one of our interns’ classes, we looked over Psalm one. pointing out we must be like a tree planted by the river like our leaves revealing the life that is given by the father. Let me catch you up.
The Journey of Patience:
Preparing for South Sudan was a challenge. My role was to shoot videos and take pictures. I questioned whether I was going along the right path of preparation. I spent countless hours looking over tutorial videos and looking at diverse ways to shoot videos leading up to the trip. I did not know there was going to be even more than what I saw on the upcoming day of departure.
The day of our flight I got a call, my heart fell to my stomach as I saw who it was. It was my boss, Rob. He called to inform me that there were some complications on getting some missionaries out of their location (as our plan was to meet them as a focus of our trip). They could not come at all; my initial reaction was why. Yet, the craziest scenario happened.
God you are so good:
As the moment seemed to slow down and the feeling of defeat seemed to trickle in, the Lord met me there at that moment and reminded me that there was a wedding to go to that very day. My fellow interns and friends Branden and Nancy were getting married that very day. I thought of my girlfriend Lydia, we talked about our hopes of attending the wedding together and we needed to surrender it to the Lord.
Long story short, I called her as she lived in Mexico near the border and there was enough time to get her and attend the wedding. I was so grateful to hear that we got to attend the wedding. It was such a sweet time of joy and it felt like the Lord truly blessed us.
Then challenge struck:
As it is nearing the end of the year and we have been in the new year of the internship at Calvary Chapel Saving Grace. It has been nothing but exciting. I found a rhythm of sorts that I can do both ministry and the internship. Until a few days ago…
Reader, I write to you with a sad heart that I may need to change jobs once again due to funds being short and there is not enough to sustain my payroll in Ends of The Earth Ministries. I will be forced to go back into the workforce unless I can find support. My job is reaching a very crucial point because we have struck gold with the tasks I have been working on. For the last 3 months, I have been trying to find the perfect way to place missionary training that we so desperately needed. As I have looked to become a missionary, I have come against so many questions that I have found answers using Rob Douglass’ teachings.
We look to build a course that no matter where you are in the process of becoming a missionary to already being on the field, it can encourage and impact you! Friends, I ask that you prayerfully consider supporting me. If the Lord leads you to do so there is a secure giving link down at the bottom of the page.
Thank you so much for reading this and coming alongside me in meaningful prayer. If you have any questions, please contact me.
