Support Samantha's Missionary Training

 

Hello my dear friends and family! Thank you for taking the opportunity to visit this page and consider supporting me in my endeavor to
become a missionary. A little about my story:

After attending many short term mission trips to countries such as Mexico, Zimbabwe and Romania, the Lord put a desire on my heart to serve somewhere long-term. The next step was to get rid of all my student debt, which the Lord helped me finish off last November! Then I took a missions course called Perspectives where I learned that there are still so many countries who have zero access to the Good News, and the US only sends 1 in 100 missionaries to these least-reached places! It was also in this course where I learned that the most strategic way to foster lasting growth in these countries is by bringing the Word to them and working alongside locals to plant a church in their own unique culture, language and customs.

In order to prepare for such a task, the Lord led me to attend a missionary training school called Radius International that will begin this August. The school specializes in training for church planting in the least reached people-groups. They call it "pioneer" church planting, because it involves bringing the Gospel to those people groups who would otherwise never have any kind of access to it.

My training is 9 months long, and after its completion next June, I hope to join a team and begin church planting in one of these least-reached people groups. As to where that could be, only the Lord knows at this point!

Ways you can support!

  • Prayer, prayer, and more prayer! I leave for this training program on August 21st! It is located in TJ, Mexico. Please pray for last minute details to be ironed out before I move down, for ease in learning Spanish while I am there, for making new friendships and building community, and for a deepening of my faith and trust in the Lord. You can also be praying that the Lord would begin forming a team with the students at Radius and that He would lead us to find a people-group to partner with.
  • Financial support is always appreciated! Since I will be quitting my job to attend this training, I will need about $1700 a month to support myself while living in Mexico. This includes tuition and day to day living expenses like transportation, laundry, cell phone, etc.

*For security reasons, please don't share this link publicly on social media as it could create some problems down the road if I am trying to enter a restricted country.*

Please feel free to reach out to me on FB or email if you'd like to get in touch or hear more about what God is doing during my time at
Radius. I won't have frequent access to internet once I move down, but will be sending out occasional updates via email.

Thank you again for your support and prayers! I could not do this without you! <3

Until all have heard,

 

Samantha
