"Africa Mama..."

So... God totally lined it up for me to sell my car this weekend, and I got a check today for $3000.00 (more than I asked for in selling it). My dear friend Anya from SOW (YWAM School of Worship that I completed here in June), randomly came to the base (she isn't involved with YWAM presently) and I got a chance to talk to her briefly. In those few moments, she explained a slightly complicated situation in which she is needing a car by November first. This was Saturday night, and I told her how I had been thinking of selling me car, especially since I needed $3000 by Tuesday (yesterday) in order to go to Liberia for outreach. Long story short, she told me she was interested... I prayed with some friends for peace and confirmation (that this is how God wanted to provide for me), and then it ended up for Anya to get a loan through her bank and had it processed today!! I'm so thrilled to be apart of this amazing team! There is one leader, Jessa, who is also my SSJ assistant director, and 4 other students (so six total including me). Candace, Drea, and I are apart of SSJ, and Tori and Bob are in Phase II (SOMD - School of Ministry Development). This outreach is specifically for secondary students, so no DTS students are coming with us. And although there was originally about 20 people interested in going, God led the others in a different direction, and now it's just 6 of us.

I still need the rest of the funds for outreach, so please continue to pray for me, but I rejoice in God's provision of the rest of my tuition for lecture phase & the first portion of outreach. If you'd like to donate you can do so online:

On another note, please be in prayer for one of our school leaders, Cary. He is one of the first people to create and pioneer SSJ, and last week was diagnosed with having a cancerous tumor on his brain stem that is inoperable due to the sensitivity of the stem. He is being released from the hospital this evening, but will be starting chemo therapy and radiation in the next few days ahead. Please pray for complete healing of his body, opportunities for influence in hospital staffs' lives, and that his moral would continue to be optimistic (he has been so great emotionally through this, making jokes, laughing, etc).

In Christ's Joy,

YWAM Denver

It's been nearly a month since I last posted, and can't believe the time has already passed so quickly. This week concluded the 4th week of lecture phase here at YWAM Denver. I've been blown away by how much has happened in the last few weeks. It's incredible. God has done so much in my heart!!

I didn't know until I arrived here that there was an optional outreach at the end of the 3-month training phase for the School of Social Justice. After prayer and asking God for specific confirmation if and where I should go on outreach, God led me to go with the Liberia team for a 7-week outreach to help care for the poor and needy, and pioneer orphanages. I strongly believe God is leading me toward this, and that in His timing He will provide (see my last post if you have any doubts. :) )

Our leader is planning on buying our airline tickets to Liberia on Tuesday, and I still need about $3000 in order to pay for the rest of lecture phase, and put down the first payment for outreach. Please help support me in this, both through contending in prayer and by giving financially.

To make a payment online go to:
This will go directly to my account here at YWAM Denver. (for the school and date: School of Social Justice, Fall 2011)

You can also mail checks to:
