Michael needs your help! On December 12, he will be leaving on mission for a total of 7 months: two months in Italy and then 5 months in Uganda. He needs your help to raise $4000 for airfare, his mission course, and other expenses.
Michael, as many of you know, grew up on the mission field until the age of 8. Four of these years were spent with his family in Jinja, Uganda. The Lord has been stirring his heart for some time to return"home" to Africa for a short term mission trip.
Michael's plan is to do a Discipleship Training School (DTS) with Youth With A Mission (YWAM). This impactful program involves classroom training and hands-on practical mission experience. The DTS will be based at the YWAM headquarters very near the Bible School that his family worked with from 1999-2003, and it will last from February 11 until July 13 of 2018.
Prior to going to Africa, Michael plans to spend a couple months with his family working among migrants in the city of Rome, Italy. Lord willing, he will go directly from Rome to Uganda.
This is where you come in. As friends and family of Michael, you know his character and heart. For the 7 months that he is away on mission, he will not be able to work to support himself. He needs others to partner with him to make this dream a reality.
Would your prayerfully consider helping Michael reach his goal of raising $4000? Your investment in this young man, as he seeks to follow God's path for his life, will be money well spent.
Thank you for your prayers and financial support of Michael's adventure of faith in Africa!!
"He is no fool to give up that which he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose." (Jim Elliot)
