Hello friends, family, and strangers alike! For those of you who don't know me, my name is Tyler Robbert. I love Jesus Christ and I'm seeking to do what I can to be a part of furthering His Kingdom. That's why you're reading this!
God is doing incredible things in my life and in the world! I want to invite you to be a part of an opportunity I have to be a small part of the work He is doing in Lesotho, Africa! Come September, I will be moving to Lesotho to volunteer in an orphanage called Beautiful Gate. My main role will be loving the kids so that they come to know the love of their heavenly Father. I'm so excited to respond to this call on my life, and as I prepare to do so I have been prayerfully hoping that God might be calling others to partner in this ministry with me too. I have made a one-year commitment to Beautiful Gate and I will be serving as a full-time volunteer.
Beautiful Gate Lesotho's mission is "to glorify God by providing opportunities for children and families to grow spiritually, emotionally, physically, and intellectually." Since it began, Beautiful Gate has given hope to over 350 children.
Though I have never personally been to Lesotho or Beautiful Gate, I was introduced to this ministry in my work at The River CRC in Redlands, CA this past summer. Since then God has brought it to my attention time and time again in remarkable ways. It's a call I strongly feel God placing on my heart and, although it will push me far outside of my comfort zone, I cannot ignore it. It will be a massive leap of faith, but I trust that where God guides, He provides.
What will I be doing?
1. Prayer. This is truly the most important part. I would not be in the position I'm in now if not for months of careful prayer and I won't be able to move forward without it either. I have assembled a team of people who have committed to praying for me regularly, but I would greatly appreciate any and all additional prayer. Would you be willing to pray for me frequently?
2. Finances. In order for this dream to become a reality I need to raise $23,000 for the year. This money will cover housing and living expenses, travel costs, and student loan payments. I would deeply appreciate any gifts to make this possible. Would you consider supporting this work financially?
If you feel like this may be an opportunity you might want to engage in, I would urge you to be in prayer about it.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read and learn a little bit about what God has placed on my heart. I have never raised a sum of money this large before, but I trust that by God's grace and with your help this will not be a stumbling block for my mission. Thank you again, and may God's blessings be upon you!
