In November 2016, I had an overwhelming recognition of power and authority come about within my heart. I knew that applications for missions trips were coming out soon, and I was hesitant about applying due to my lack of certainty of where I should go.
Through prayer & devotion, I realized that enablement was something that Jesus shed blood for. As Christians, we have a call placed on our lives to go. Matthew 28: 18-20 states, "Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of 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 the age.'”
I recognized the affirmation of my capability, and I was free to greet the world with arms wide open. So I chose Italy!
Location: Rome & Francavilla al Mare, Italy Trip Dates: May 13th-29th, 2017 Ministry Opportunities: - Partnering with International Christian Fellowship Rome, an English & Italian speaking church in Italy’s capitol city. - Street Evangelism - Creating relationship with church attendees - Church service projects - Prayer night service (Possible testimony sharing with congregation) - Women’s Bible studies - Worship workshops - Young Adult events - Visit to a Refugee camp -Offer a free sports camp at the YWAM base in Francavilla al Mare
Necessary Support: While I am in need of raising $2800, I have an additional request regardless of your capability to provide financial support. Join with my team & I in prayer leading up to, during, and following our trip. Europe has history, and with years and years of familial bloodlines come generational oppression. Here are some things you can be praying for:
-Open hearts & Opportunity -- Every moment is an opportunity, and we wish to take advantage of each second we're given to spread the freedom found in Christ! Pray for a Holy Spirit guided recognition of the time we have to minister & the tools we have been given as uniquley designed individuals. -Spiritual Warfare -- With the furthering of the kingdom comes opposition. Our team is not ignorant of the attemps the enemy will and is currently taking in order to throw us off track spiritually, physically, and mentally. Pray for resilience, zeal, purpose, boldness, health, determination, healings, revelation, identity, callings & salvations, and above all the will of God! We walk forward as anointed and changed people. -Safe travels -- To, from, and throughout Italy. -Relationships -- We are seeking out genuine relationship with the people we will be encountering. At the heart of our passion for this trip, we seek to be conduits of the love, peace, and everlasting goodness of God & His Holy Spirit. Please pray that these relationships act as seeds planted within the hearts of the locals and that they can continually draw encouragement and love from the memories of our time with them!
I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to invest in me, my team, and the lives of those we will be impacting in Italy. It is a blessing to know that there are people standing in support of this amazing opportunity.
