I am so excited to tell you what God is doing in my life and where He is leading me! In less then a month, on September 27th, I will be leaving for Mozambique Africa for three months!! God has been speaking this into my heart for many years and even more so over this past year.
As many of you know that I have felt the Lord’s call on my life, in particular missions and Africa. I have held onto this call, leaving it in His hands, trusting in His timing, and staying ready and willing. Last summer when I had the opportunity to go to Swaziland for a few weeks God gave me this verse: Isaiah 55:10 &11.
"As the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
and do not return to it without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."
Pemba, Mozambique. I will be going to the Harvest School of Missions, which is apart of Rolland and Heidi Bakers ministry. Here is the web page if your interested in learning more about what they are doing.
What I will be doing:
I will be taking part of the Harvest School of Mission. The classes run from October 1st to December 5th. Here is what the school is about (taken from the student manual): “It is a school to train and equip a new breed of missionaries, a generation of laid-down lovers who will run into the darkest corners of the earth, call on the outcasts, bring in His Bride and compel the poor to come to the wedding feast.” In addition to the classes I will be helping out in one of the different areas of ministry, which includes evangelism, Bible schools, medical clinics, primary and secondary schools, farming, vocational training, church planting, bush conferences, counseling, and child sponsorship. Of course I would love to be helping in the medical clinics but we will see once I get there. After the 5th of December I will be going on an extended bush outreach, and then will be spending the Christmas season back in Pemba.
I would so appreciate all of your prayers while I am on this trip. Yes for safety but even more so for the Lords presence and power to be with me, working through me, and touching the lives of those around me. Pray that I continue to walk in His presence and life by faith!!!
I am trusting the Lord with the finances for this trip. I know that He called me, He provided this opportunity/open door, and He will pay for this trip!
If you have any questions or would like to chat I would love to talk with you more!!! And I would love to share more of my story with you!!
