To recap what I’ve been doing, the first three months were spent in Montana attending lectures and getting to understand the character and nature of God more fully, discovering my true value in Christ, doing life with my school, and preparing as a team to go on outreach. The final two months we spent on outreach, during which we had the chance to share the gospel at elementary schools, build relationships in coffee shops, and support existing ministries through acts of service.
All this, you played a part in. Without you, there would have been no going. You helped construct the reality of the dream God put in my heart. You were the fuel to the flame. And for that I am incredibly grateful. I can’t tell you how much it means to have had you guys support me both financially and through prayer. During hard times it meant the world knowing that I had a group of people in my corner cheering me on.
So what happens now? Well, now it’s time to turn the page, to begin a new chapter, and I hear God calling me to return to YWAM Montana for a season, though this time in a much different role. Come January 2016 I will be returning to Montana on a six-month commitment to be part of the staff there.
While the base there is a well-oiled machine, it still functions on the power of people who sacrifice their lives to serve there. No one receives a salary and everyone raises support to be there. They are essentially missionaries to the United States. As with every organization, in order for the gears to turn there needs to be people working in a wide variety of departments, from the kitchen, to maintenance, to hospitality, and beyond. Enter me…
I will be working in the media department, which has a great need due to the recent departure of several people. This particular base has a wide variety of different schools that it offers to the hundreds of people that are trained and then sent out as missionaries each year. I will be partnering with the media department to help create videos for the different schools and departments on base, doing graphic design work, and maintaining the base website. The next six months will provide me with a unique opportunity to assist YWAM with my particular skill set, while also being able to learn and grow more as an individual.
I am looking for people to support me as I step into this new vision. In order to be able to live and work at YWAM Montana I need to raise $800 dollars a month to cover the costs of living, which includes housing, food, gas, and car insurance. One-time donations are welcome, but what is really needed are people who can commit to supporting me for six months beginning January 2016. It would mean the world if you would prayerfully consider doing so.
If you are interested in supporting me monthly, you can get in contact with me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Just a side note to those who want to support me, due to my specific staff role, donations are not tax deductible.
Much Love and Thanks,
