Good evening, I want to thank everyone for supporting my missionary ministry. I’m posting this image a very good friend whipped up for me, to help gain support. If you guys can post this on your Facebook accounts, you would be helping more than you could possibly know.
Currently, I’m working on scheduling my trip through Mauritania. Immediately following my trip, which will last 3 weeks, I will be heading directly to Turkey, pending me receiving my visa in time. I’ll be posting more critical updates in the next few days regarding my ministry.
A couple of people have also asked me to post more information about myself, and what made me come to this decision. I have good news, and bad news regarding this request. I believe that this is a mission of God, not of myself. That this is the Holy Spirit working through me, and doing this in the name of our Father. I have absolutely no claim to any of this, I am simply doing what I feel lead to do.
I have had a heart for missionaries since high school, and my first summer out of school, I went on a month long mission to Mexico. Now, 2 years later, I have been on a total of 4 out of country missions. But recently, I have noticed that there are so many untouched places on the map, that you would never expect missionaries to go. Upon thinking about this, I realized, and remembered, Mark 16:15, and the very important word that almost seems to be thrown in the verse by mistake, ‘ALL’. And when I realized that, I realized a lot of other things, like we are ALL the children of God, and He wants us ALL to eventually arrive at the Kingdom of Heaven. Even the people, that you and I have all been guilty of almost hating without cause, be it because of their religion, or the way the view Americans. It is our duty as Christians, to find ALL of these people, and tell them the story of Christ. And one month ago, I knew that I had to do just that. I began filling out the necessary applications to obtain visa’s to primarily Muslim and Islam countries, and upon hearing of approval from the country of Mauritania, I dropped out of college, and began to plan my trip there. It is almost completely paid for, and I know where I will be staying for the most part of my trip, and for how long I will be staying.
After selling my car, and most of my personal values, I have realized that international ministry is not a joke, and is certainly not for everyone. It is a life that I feel I must have, but it is not what I had imagined it would be. All of your prayers would be more than appreciated as I begin this journey, and in the near future I might set up a donation system, so that those of you who are able, may help support my future trips to Turkey, and Yemen.
Thank you all for the support, and again, please use the image attached with this post. I will need all of the help I can get.
