YWAM Discipleship Training School

Donation protected
Hey friends, I'm Lauren, and the one thing I want you to know about me is that I love Jesus like crazy. Life with Him is the best thing ever, and He's given me a super cool opportunity to attend a Discipleship Training School with an organization called Youth with a Misson (YWAM). On October 3rd, I will leave my lifelong hometown of Harrisonburg, VA  and go to San Pedro, Belize  for three months in order to grow closer to the Lord and learn more about how to be a disciple for Him and proclaim His Good News to those around me. Following those three months, I will venture to another counrty for two months putting into practice all I learned in Belize by serving in many capacities. After this 5 month DTS, I will serve as an intern in another country for 16 weeks. YWAM Destination Paradise (the YWAM location in Belize) will help pair me with a Christian organization who I will be serving with. 

In order to pay for my missions work with YWAM I need to raise a good bit of money. I have already raised over half of the funds I need, but I am still in need of a significant amount more. I would absoutely love it if you would consider donating to my trip, and I would also love for you to partner with me in my journey through prayer. 

To learn more about what a DTS is, please watch the attached video.
If you have any questions or just want to talk, please feel free to email me at [email redacted] or text/call me at [phone redacted]. 
Thank you so much for all your support and for taking part in my journey.  You are a gift and are so very loved. 

In Him,
