I am delighted to inform
you of my recent acceptance into YWAM's (Youth with a Mission) Discipleship
Training School, beginning this coming fall. I am excited for the opportunity
to attend my DTS in beautiful Maui, Hawaii. I am having a blessed senior year,
but am looking forward to what God has in store for 2013-'14 as I venture into
new territory. The DTS is an
intensive six-month program that fuels inward transformation and outward
application through worship, teachings, prayer, evangelism, service and
compassion. The first three months are spent in Maui where I will grow in my
faith and in the knowledge of the world around me (along with the bonus of warm
sun and sand!). The second three months are spent in Southeast Asia where I
will be sharing the truth and love of Jesus Christ with others. I am scheduled to
leave in September and will return in March.
While God has opened the
door for me to accept this opportunity, I need the support of my friends and
family. First off, please keep me in your prayers. I need prayer that God will
prepare my heart for this life-changing journey, for the safety and wisdom of
the Maui team, and that God may bless our efforts as we minister to the people
of Asia. Please also be praying that the financial need will be met. Between
working and raising funds, please pray with me for his provision. At this time,
I need to raise around $8,500. Whether you feel led to contribute financially,
through prayer, or both, any support is much appreciated! I look forward to this
incredible experience in Hawaii and Asia and will keep you posted on how God will
work through me and this team.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of
the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything
I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of age.
