Erin's YWAM Journey

Dear Family and Friends,

I’m excited to share that I’m about to follow God’s call on my life by stepping out onto the waters of faith, where my journey will take me to the ends of the earth, literally. 

I finished high school last year, and have been praying about what God wants me to do this year for him.  I can’t believe what I’m about to share is actually happening.  I am so excited (but I’m also scared, and really need your love and prayer support in this time).

I have been accepted into YWAM, which stands for Youth With A Mission. This mission will last for 6 months, where I will do my DTS (Discipleship Training School).  What does that mean? 

Well, from April until June this year I will move to Perth, living on campus with the rest of my team, and participate in full-time discipleship training for 3 months. It’s here God will help me grow and mature in my personal faith, preparing me for mission, and the rest of my life as a devoted follower of Christ.

Then, from July until September, I will be on a mission, serving the poorest of the poor in Nepal and other locations around the world (possibly Indonesia or Madagascar).  This experience will be faith building, and I am expecting to see God move in this time. God has given me a heart for children in need of love and care. I am excited to express the love of Christ to them as we serve in their communities.


Would you be willing to take a faith step along with me and be part of my prayer team?  I’m building a prayer team for this journey and will keep you posted with updates.  I will post updates on my Go Fund Me page and share on Facebook. 


If God moves on your heart to help me with a one off or regular financial gift I would be so grateful as I am trusting God for the finances for this 6 month journey.  My need is $10,000 for the entire 6 months which includes all travel, accomodation, food, and school fees.

I have already saved $1500 myself and am continuing to work and save more before departing. God has already provided me extra shifts since I began praying for his provision.  Amazing!   I am also selling stuff on Gumtree, including my 5 baby birds. This should provide an extra $1000. I am trusting God to provide the remaining $7500.  That would be a miracle but I believe I am following God’s plan so I trust him completely.

Would you be willing to help me toward my goal and join me in my faith journey?

I am using the “Go Fund Me” website to manage my finances so you can see my progress, and I will provide regular updates to my prayer and support team.  Also you can message me for bank details should you wish to make an offline donation or direct gift.  Thank you for joining me as I head off on this life-changing journey.

So Grateful,

Erin x
