I write to you today to let you know about an exciting adventure coming up in my life that I would like you to be apart of. As many of you may know, God has placed a desire in my heart to go into missions to continue to serve and to further equip myself as a disciple of Jesus Christ. My decision to follow Jesus in 2010 changed everything for me. I was lost in the world, directionless and only living for myself before getting involved with Snowboarders & Skiers for Christ (SFC). Through this ministry I encountered Jesus and then became involved with Red Rocks Church where, a couple years later, I was baptized. Because of Jesus, I am now filled with so much love, hope, joy and peace. My life has been forever changed and I desire to share this good news with those who do not yet know Jesus as savior.
Becoming a chapter leader of SFC Denver has allowed me to reach out to people who are seeking truth and to use my passion for snowboarding in a way I never imagined. While I have been very fortunate to work in the Aviation industry with Jeppesen, I feel God is calling me to step out in faith, perusing the passions and dreams for ministry he’s given me in a way that better glorifies Him.
This upcoming New Year I will be traveling to the other side of the world, to Perth Australia. I will be joining Youth with a Mission and Christian Surfers Ministry for a discipleship training school. The schools vision is to ‘know God and make Him known’ through training, equipping and discipling individuals who can then impact in their local communities. We will be primarily focused on spending time in the word, growing closer to God and preparing for outreach. For our two-month outreach we will be traveling into the south pacific islands. Where we will be able to serve, disciple and share the good news of Jesus.
It would be an honor to have you join alongside me as I jump into all God has for me! I ask for your support, encouragement and prayers as I take this leap of faith. I need to raise a total of $8,000 for my travel, DTS and outreach. I trust God fully and know he will provide, as He is always faithful. If you feel led to financially partner with me by either a one-time donation or monthly donation, it would be a huge blessing! If you are interested in hearing more about my heart behind this upcoming journey I would love to connect with you!
I know this next year will change my life and I am eternally grateful for your encouragement, prayers and support. I am so excited for this opportunity and I am looking forward to sharing with you the amazing stories of Gods work in, and through me in the land down under!
In Christ and with gratitude,
Jeremiah 29:11 “For the lord says, I know that plans I have for you, they are not for disaster but they are to give you hope and a future.”
