Dear Friends and Family,
“The Lord bless you, and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.” Numbers 6:24-26
I wanted to take a moment and share with you what I am doing for the next year. Earlier this year, God called me out of Central Missouri to attend the Cross Church School of Ministry. The CCSM is a one-year ministry residency where I gain personalized ministry experience and travel on three mission journeys. I’m excited about the work He has given me and the opportunity to be closer to family here!
This year is already starting off great, and I have peace and joy as God prepares me for missions ministry at the Cross Church Springdale Campus. During this year, in God’s perfect timing, my classmates and I will be traveling to at least two cities in America, and to Malawi in Africa on mission journeys.
As I embark on this journey, I am asking for your partnership in 2 ways:
1) Pray. Please be in prayer for my family and I as we walk with God through this year of change. Pray that I will learn tools to prepare me for my future ministry to unreached people who come to America and that God would use me in ministry for His kingdom and glory. Pray for my 13 classmates and me as we travel on the various mission journeys, and for the people we will be meeting as we go. Please also join me in praying for spiritual awakening.
2) Give. As part of my Cross Church School of Ministry experience I am raising money to cover the costs of my mission trips. The average cost of these journeys is $5,000 per person. God has called me to this journey and I appreciate any partnership donation. All gifts are tax deductible when given as noted below. If you feel led to give, please fill out the enclosed card and return in the envelope provided by November 23, 2020.
Thanks for partnering with me! It’s very important that I have brothers and sisters in Christ supporting the work God is doing, so I will keep you updated about the training and experience I am getting here. If you have any questions, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
For God’s Kingdom and Glory,
