Hello friends and family!
I thought I would start up my Mali blog now, not just to build connections for updates, but to allow people to see what is going on now, even before I leave. Heres the latest status and what you can pray for!
-NOTHING IS OFFICIAL (YET)- I am at the end of application and currently WorldVenture is running an international background check to make sure I am not a fugitive. Its takes some time, especially since I have lived around the world. After that is finished, I will be interviewed, then it goes to the board who will decide my final status!
-SCHOOL IS ENDING- I only have 5 more weeks of school, the graduation! Whee!!!
-FUND-RAISING- I will begin fund-raising as soon as I am endorsed with WorldVenture. This gives me 2 months to raise $20,000- which will cover my first year in Mali. Please prayerfully consider being a supporter! I am so excited to be blown away by Gods faithfulness to the call he has given me to go into the world and I am asking all of you to join me in the epic adventure. If interested, pay attention to my blog/facebook/mail for information on how to get involved.
-PRESENTATIONS- I will be making a variety of presentations at churches and groups, letting them know of what I am doing and what God is doing around the world. If you are interested in having me come and share with your church family, I would love to. I have a summer dedicated to sharing, teaching, and allowing people to get involved… please let me know! I love to speak as to what God is doing and getting people excited for the work of his kingdom!
Thats all for now. I will periodically be posting information on what is happening, so keep in touch!
