-Well I'm still here in Homer, Alaska for about 2 more weeks preparing our team for our outreach. The first week of our 2 month outreach we are spending on a Island village just south of us called Ouzinkee where YWAM Arctic Mercy has done a fair bit of work both relational and construction so we will be continuing that by doing some major renovations to the Baptist mission there.
-From there we will be going down to Haiti for 6 weeks, we will be a part of this stage in between the first stage of basic survival and the second stage of rebuilding so I am sure we will be a part of the humanitarian relief but also part of the spiritual, physical, relational, emotional rebuild. We are joining Youth With A Mission Haiti as they have been there for years and have doing doing extensive relief already. I am co- leading this team of 8 people; the 4 students, 2 former staff, and me and my co leader, and so I am in charge of purchasing the tents and other basic living gear, and preparing the team for this service of Gods kingdom, among other things right now. Some of the projects YWAM Haiti are involved in are; the rebuild of the Haitian church, Adopt a community (where we serve a community in what ever way it needs; food, erecting tents, rebuilding houses, spiritual needs, water management).
YWAM Arctic Mercy is dedicated to bringing the Mercy of Christ to the nations, we are first and foremost dedicated to Alaska, we just sent a team of staff back up to St. Lawrence Island yesterday for 2 months, we are seeing incredible fruit coming from our commitment to persevere in some of these northern villages. Thank you for your prayers and support, it means a lot to me to know people are behind me so don't be scared to contact me, just to say a simple I'm praying for you.
There are a few different ways you can invest into our outreach.
we have to purchase 2 tents that are going to cost about $250 each.
if you have American airlines airmiles that you want to donate.
this trip is ending up costing $2750 due to high travel costs, I have paid off most of it already.
If you want to even support one of our students who is in more need of money than me.
You can also help simply by prayer and praise.
First of all praise the Lord for:
He makes all things possible
His love goes before us and follows behind us
He is constantly praying for us
He is sending us to be His hands and feet in this time of need
He is sovereign
the battle belongs to Him
And then pray for this team
that we will be the first to volunteer and be servants of all
that God will protect us in our time of need
that God would use us in spiritually rebuilding this country for His purposes
that we will be obedient to following what God has for us to do each day
for me as the leader, trying to maintain what God has built in this team
for deep wisdom beyond my years that only can come from walking with God
