My second term has begun and this time my financial needs are even bigger. Having used most of my savings first term, my desire right now is to have the finances to cover my training to be a missionary. My parents are helping me with my room and board and I have put in applications for jobs. One obstacle to working is the fact that I don’t have a car and getting rides or taking the bus to school is challenging! So I am praying for a car and for the funds for tuition for this term and next term. At this time, I am not seeking to participate in a mission trip after this term since I don’t have any pledged funds towards that trip. My main goal is to pay my tuition for both terms (total of $4,000) and then go on a mission trip after my third term in March (@$3,000 for trips). When I finish at IMPACT, I plan on applying for a 6-month internship or a long-term mission trip assignment. During that time I will need to raise funds for an extended trip of up to 2 years in the mission field. Since this is the course I believe I will be taking over the next 3 years, I am asking you to consider partnering with me to complete my training and prepare me for a long-term, extended time as a missionary. I greatly appreciate the prayers and financial support I have already received and am so blessed to have you all in my life! If God chooses to make it possible for me to complete this journey, I know it will be because you joined in the working out of His plan! Jeremiah 29:11 says “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” This verse is for YOU and Me. God has a plan for your life – THANK YOU for joining me in this journey in whatever way you are able.
