First of all, thank you so much for checking out my journey! I am so excited for what God has in store for me as I take this huge leap of faith. I would love for you to follow along with me, and I will do my very best to provide you with updates as often as possible. I don’t leave until the end of December (the DTS starts January 2nd 2017) so I won’t be updating too frequently until then. However I do intend on sharing a bit about my preparations.
The first way that you can support me is through prayer. This is a very big adventure and at times it can be a bit overwhelming. I would greatly appreciate if you would keep me in your prayers in this time of preparation. Some current prayer requests are:
- That I would be able to trust in God as I enter this period of unknown.
- That God would be preparing my heart for the journey that He has in store for me.
(I plan to update these as they change, so feel free to check back every now and then.)
Secondly, another way that you can support me is financially. I will need to cover not only the cost of the DTS and Outreach, but also flights, potential train tickets, new gear and all the other small costs that will pop up along the road. The Lecture Phase and Outreach will cost 4450 € ($6580 CAD). I am hoping to fundraise as much as I can to cover that cost, so any amount will help. Ultimately I know that God is in control of all of the details, and I trust that He will provide for me.
If you are feeling like you would like to support me financially, I have some good news! All donations made towards the cost of YWAM itself are Tax Deductible. (They didn’t teach me what that meant in school, but I’ve heard it’s something grown-ups like to hear.) The way that you can give to me is by giving to the YWAM Biarritz Base through YWAM Project Funding which is based in Vancouver, BC.
