Just like this little kid who is hopeful and ready for adventure, so am I! As many of you may already know, I am excited to say that I have applied and been accepted to go on a mission’s trip through an organization called YWAM (Youth With A Mission). The entire program is 6 months long. The first 3 months I will be in Kona, Hawaii for the “lecture phase” where I will be trained for outreach at their Awaken Discipleship Training School with a team. The Awaken DTS will also include:
* Learning to hear and obey God’s voice through the Word of God and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
* Understanding the world we live in and the importance of worship, intercessory prayer, community and spiritual warfare.
* Discovering callings and gifts.
The field assignment:
After this training, I will be putting into practice all I have learned. This next phase of the DTS is 11-12 weeks long and will take place overseas. I am not sure on the exact location yet because I will choose upon my arrival in Kona. I will be taking the Gospel to places where people may have never even heard the name of Jesus and participating in expanding God’s kingdom. Outreach activities will include:
* prophesying and reaching out to present Jesus in a variety of other creative, apostolic ways.
I am believing that when God said we would do greater things than Jesus, that he meant it!
Course fees and dates:
Arrival day for Hawaii is July 5, 2012
Total estimated cost is $9,995
Fees for the 12-week lecture phase of the school are $3,995 (room, board and tuition). Fees for the field assignment include airfares, housing and food, and are estimated to be around $5,000-$6000 depending on various locations. This money will also provide two meals a day, all air fair, living expenses, as well as health insurance. The trip is being funded entirely through donations as well as myself. I am excited about the opportunity to serve and to minister, and I ask you to join me in ministry. I am seeking your support and prayers for this mission trip.
