My name is Emilie Choi, I am 18 almost 19 years old! I am currently Co-leading a Thursday night house ministry called Refuge House in Orange County, California, where I have seen the finger of God move tremendously, where people my age, older, and younger have given their lives to Jesus and even gotten baptized! I have been walking souled out for Jesus for 2 years now, and ever since I said yes to Him my whole life has become His, my summers, my plans, my desires, my schooling, my jobs, all point back to Him and the call He has called me to. I have given Him my full yes.
Before I gave my life to Christ, I determined success as how much money you make and how comfortably you build yourself up to live. Although, even with that mindset I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. One month I wanted to be a Lawyer, the next I wanted to be an Author, a part of my testimony is that I really had no vision or purpose for my life. But since giving my life to Jesus, I remember the first thing He restored was my purpose. He breathed on the dreams I had as a child and has turned my heart to desire Him and Him alone. When I think about success now, all I can think about is Jesus. I have no agenda, I have no desire, only to do the will of my Father in Heaven. That is my life mission. He has burned a passion inside of me to bring His gospel to the nations of the world, and bring justice to many children around the world as well, and I believe my time here at Jesus School will build me up to accomplish His will to do such things.
The Lord told me 3 months ago to quit my job. These pasts few months have been a wild ride of me holding on really tight to Him, declaring "Jesus I don't know what you're doing but I trust you." I had no idea Jesus School was where He was leading me, but it's better than what I could've ever asked for. Jesus school is a 2 year program, as of RIGHT NOW I am planning on only attending for 1 year. Along side Michael and Jessica Koulianos, the founders of Jesus School, I will be learning directly from anointed men and women of God who have already shaken the world with their fire and passion for the gospel. Such as; Daniel Kolenda, Steffany Gretzinger, Todd White, Benny Hinn and many more. I have an opportunity to be equipped and trained to be sent out to the nations with a foundation of a deeper revelation of the Bible and the person of Jesus Christ. I will be in a thriving environment alongside many other students who have laid everything down to follow the call of Jesus.
I will be moving from California to Florida! Therefore these funds will not only cover my tuition but it will also help with some of my moving expenses.
I believe in sowing into the Kingdom of God, not even just for things we can see but for things unseen. I believe the moment you give from your heart, you are releasing not only for you to be able to reap what you sow on earth, but ultimately you are sowing into an everlasting Kingdom, where only in heaven will you truly know what your donation really did! I truly believe that. Giving can look different to every one of you, all I ask is that you ask God what your giving looks like, whether that looks like a specific amount, prayer, or even advice!!
When I found out for certain that this is where the Lord wanted me, I didn't even think twice about the money, of course I had my questions but I knew if I was supposed to go He would take care of absolutely everything. Which is why I believe He will use this not only to take care of me, but to bless you as well. There is a transaction that is made when you give. He does something in your life and in your heart, and I pray right now for every single one of you that donate, that God would give you it all back hundredfold! In Jesus name.
Tuition is about $3950 basically $4000.
Living expenses such as
will vary but the rest of the money after the tuition is raised will definitely allow me to move out there comfortably and smoothly.
Family, this school is what is setting a solid foundation for me to do what God has ultimately called me to do around the world and around the country. This world is seeking eagerly for something more. The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. I am called to be a laborer! (so are you by the way :) )
Again, giving may look different to everyone. Please in any way you can give what is on your heart, whether that be a generous amount, a connection in Florida, advice, but most importantly prayer! Prayer is needed from everyone reading this haha. But please understand how grateful I am that you are even reading this and every bit of your donation, regardless of what it looks like, means not only so much to me, but to God Himself as well.
I love you all so much! Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou.
