As many of you know, about 6 years ago the Lord laid upon my heart to build homes for orphans. Ever since, I've had a deep desire to fulfill this calling to work with abandoned children and show them Christ's love. I've been patiently pursuing the Lord in this journey since 2007 and along the way He has shaped my life, increased my faith, prepared my heart, and provided others with the same passion to walk alongside me in this calling. It has been amazing to see God's vision unfold and become a reality.
In this next step of the journey, God has given me the opportunity to attend Iris Ministries' Harvest School of Missions this summer in Mozambique! Heidi & Rolland Baker, the founders of Iris Ministries, have shared the gospel and built multiple orphan homes around the globe; now they are equipping others to do the same. Attending Harvest School will not only allow me the opporunity to learn the ropes of ministry, but to also receive wisdom from leaders that have gone before me in the very same calling. This a lifelong investment that will prepare me with the skills needed to work with children and start homes for orphans.
My passion is to see the nations rise up in the glory of God, proclaiming His renown in every tribe and tongue. I will be trained by those who have experienced it all yet willingly lay down their lives each day to be continually used as God's vessels. Please consider partnering with me in prayer and finances as I embark on this next journey of being equipped and trained for long-term missions!
Breakdown of costs:
Tuition, housing & basic African cuisine: $2,800
Airfare (Chicago-Mozambique): $2,200
Travel Insurance: $140
Misc Costs including visas, vaccinations, drinking water and equipment.
I will be leaving on May 27, 2013 and returning on August 12, 2013 just in time to start my last year of college. :) More information about the school and Iris Ministries can be found at www.irisglobal.org. Thank you!!!
