A Call to Give

Two months ago,  I entered a year-long internship run by my home church, Glad Tidings, which places me in full-time ministry work. I am training to become a missionary. I’m also finishing my last year in  bible school with Berean School of The Bible and in the internship we will be doing multitudes of tasks from office work, to working physical labor to praying for people and ministering to them by youth group and taking people out to lunch and coffee and connecting with them.

My dream is to help women in extremely impoverished countries.  My goal is to partner with others to help create sustainable economies, build water wells, schools, and bring support to their churches. I firmly believe that the Church is here to feed the needs of the mind, body and soul.  I want to be able to train others to teach women the skills to bring funding into their community.  I don’t want to bring an American Ideal of capitalism into a foreign country, but rather reach people through their own culture and language.  My dream is big, and for me to succeed in this effort I will need your help. I need your help to meet my own personal needs, and to raise funds for next year’s missions trip to Africa.

There are many things I am in need for like money for food, clothing and other finances that I need for daily life and ministry.
