Of all the people in high school likely to become a missionary, I was probably at the bottom of the list.  In fact, I wasn’t even born-again then.  I’m not really even sure I knew what missionaries did.

Fast forward to today, and the picture is a miraculous transformation!  Not only did the Lord save me and accelerate my spiritual growth, but He put a call on my life to help those in crisis through both my church, Glad Tidings of Austin (GT Austin), and Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN). Even more recently in 2016, He called me to step out in faith and become a missionary.

My stereotypes and deceptions about missionary fundraising had to be addressed first, so the Lord has led me on a humbling journey for the large part of a year, and finally, He has indicated that NOW is the time to start my campaign.  My intention is to be full-time at ADRN by January 1st, which doesn’t leave much time to pull in funds, but I’m following the Lord’s lead on this, and if He is for me, who can be against me?  Amen!

So, what’s going to fuel this campaign?  PRAYER!  I cannot do what I’m about to do without 1) the call of the Lord to go before me and lay out the path He has for me, and 2) an abundance of thanksgiving, praise, and prayer.  I am so thankful to each one of you for coming around me as prayer warriors, intercessors for my missionary journey
