Sesi's YWAM Missions Trip to Norway

Hi there! My name is Sesilia. I recently finished my second year at Olivet Nazarene University  and I am studying Elementary Education. The Lord has given me a great desire and passion to work with children and has provided me with so many amazing opportunities to do so. This past semester, I struggled with where the Lord was calling me to be. Through prayer, seeking guidance, and fully putting my trust in the Lord, I realized that I was being called to the missions field.
Starting this September, I am attending a 6-month mission trip through a program called Youth With A Mission, YWAM. The trip will begin in Norway for 3 months where I will be attending Discipleship Training School, DTS. Durning DTS, I will in lecture classes to further my education in God, help out within the local community, strengthen my relationship with Christ, immerse myself in new cultures and places, and prepare myself for the outreach phase of the mission trip. Choosing to attend the training school in Norway is something that is completely out of my comfort zone but I know is a place where I am able to grow my strength in being bold for the Lord and His word.
The outreach phase consists of applying what I learned in DTS by going different places around the world and sharing the Gospel. During this time I will encounter different people and situations that will further push my walk with the Lord. While I have a set location for my training school, the location of my outreach is undetermined until the mid-end of the schooling phase. I am beyond ecstatic to see where the Lord will send me and how He will use me as His vessel to reach so many people.
The money that is raised is going to help pay for the training school, the outreach phase, flights, etc. Through the summer, I will be hosting various fundraising events to help raise money. Those will be posted on my various social media pages. I fully trust that the Lord will provide. I thank everyone for whatever they can give, whether that be financial donations or simply prayer and support. It is a true blessing from the Lord that I am able to have this opportunity and that I am surrounded by such amazing support. I can’t wait for this next season of my life.
