Ignite the Dream

Hello, my name is Emily and I am 18 years old.
I am asking for your prayer and support for me throughout the next year as I embark on the greatest adventure of my life so far. Unfortunately not much is free anymore so I would like to request any help you may feel led to offer.

But first I will show you what all this points towards..

‘I heard the voice of the Lord saying:
“Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?”
Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”
And He said “Go...”’
Isaiah 6:8-9

I believe God has a voice and he speaks to us through different circumstances. When I was eight years old I felt a burden on my heart to help others less fortunate than myself in a country other than my own. I felt I needed to go and help them to achieve freedom & health, to love them & enable them, and to share what it means to be loved by an indescribable God who cares for them individually. In my mind, there is nothing greater than to have an impact on someone else’s life.

For ten years now I have waited and prayed for an opportunity to fulfil my calling and at last God presented one better than I would have ever imagined.

I have been accepted into a 12 month practical mission training program called IGNITE. The program is run by Potter’s Field Ministries, an American organisation that equips young people with the skills needed for overseas missionary work.

Next year, beginning on the 10th January, I will begin my adventure in Antigua, Guatemala for 3 months training. During this time, I will be serving in the local school and hopefully I will get to learn some Spanish on the way! After training, I, along with the other interns, will be deployed to 1 of 5 locations for 6 months field work; Cambodia, Guatemala, Kenya, Uganda, or Costa Rica. During this time, local pastors will be supervising the team as we participate in various works within the community.

This trip is so much bigger than me and the people I will meet and trials I will go through will not only prepare me for this 12 month adventure, but for the rest of my life. This opportunity is just the beginning of something greater and I am so thrilled to finally be able to begin my journey.

I work a part-time job while finishing my last year at school however due to the large cost of the program and the flights involved, I need to ask for support, in whichever way it may come.

So now that you know what I will be taking part of, I would ask that you please pray for me! I need to know I have others who are willing to support me during this life-changing adventure. If you feel led, this site provides the chance for you to give financial support through donation. Please email me if you are interested in sponsoring. 


Thank you and God bless,
Emily Czadrik-Spicer
