Let me first start by saying this has been a life changing year!
The Lord gave me a burden for missions in Ethiopia almost two years ago. Today (Feb. 8, 2013), I officially signed up to be on the list of about a dozen people to go on the Ethiopia mission trip in June of this same year with the First Baptist Church in The Woodlands. Two weeks ago, I applied for my passport and yesterday I started making calls to find out the best place to get all of my immunizations for the trip.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve the Lord in this capacity. I wish you all could see my excitement as I type this message right now! :)
The Lord is surely stretching and strengthening my faith through this exciting opportunity. I do not have all the money that I need to be able to go on this trip but already the Lord has starting providing to make it possible. I know that He is a rich God and that He can most definitely do all that seems impossible to me.
Having said that, I would like to give you the opportunity to play a part in my life and in the lives of the Oromo people in Ethiopia by making a commitment to pray for our trip, that the people would be receptive of the Lord, for our safety, and for the finances for me to be able to go. If the Lord leads you in this direction, you can make a donation to my trip on this website.
If you have any questions, or would just like to send an encouraging email, you can do so at [email redacted].
Thank you!! :)
