Following Gods plan

Hello, my name is Maria, and this is me taking a leap of faith.

The last two years I've been on two different kinds of christian boarding schools. On the last one, we were in Asia for about 6 weeks doing missionary work, such as; drama pieces, telling testimonies and preaching the gospel to the local people.
One day, back at the school, I suddenly felt like God saying 'Ywam', but as usual I didn't listen to God, 'cause I didn't really believe that He would actually speak to me. Days went by, and several times 'Ywam' came up in my mind and I started to get a little bit curious. So I took my phone and searched on Google for 'Ywam.' I went on a couple of pages, and then I just couldn't stop. I sat there for at least an hour just exploring all of the many disciple training schools. Then I fell asleep.

The next day I woke up and got the word 'DTS New Zealand.' This time I immediately grabbed my phone, searched, and I was sold. Since that day, I couldn't stop thinking about New Zealand. 
God has shown me many signs that this is His plan for my life, and I truly believe that nothing can stop Gods plan for my life. So i will be attending the Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Discipleship Training School. 
The YWAM motto is "to know God and make Him known." So the first three months will begin at their location in Tauranga, New Zealand. This is the "to know God" phase, and it will be a time for me to discover more about God; by growing deeper in my relationship with Him and find out the exact purpose that God has for my life. The next two months is the "and make Him known" phase, where we will head out into the nations to share the gospel. 
But i've realized, that I can't do this on my own, so I really need Gods guidance and wisdom. But I also need your prayers and support to raise approximately 10.000$
I really avoid asking people for help regarding money, so this is especially hard for me to do. But this is the time for me to start trusting in God more than ever before, and not relying on my parents for once in my life.
Your prayers and support will help me make my disciple training school possible.
And I have this huge wish, that you guys would pray for me about my ability to speak fluent english. I'm 17 years old and from Denmark, so I'm not that confident in my english yet. So if you would pray that God will help me get more comfortable and confident when speaking english. Thank you so much!
During both the lecture and outreach phase of the DTS, i will be using photography and writing as tools to impact others with the love of Christ.
So if you're able, please give what you can and be a part of this great adventure!!

Thanks in advance to whatever you can do to help!
