Come September I will moving downtown Grand Rapids, into the west side!! I'll be living on Bridge street and working with the Bridge Street House of Prayer. They will be running a mission school much like the Discipleship Training School(DTS) YWAM offers. The guys heading up the mission school both have completed a DTS. For more in depth description of what the school will look from a students perspective, visit this page: Bridge Street Mission School.
I have committed two years to serving alongside the BSHOP staff.
Sept.-Dec. I will be sitting in on the classes with the students, having small groups with some of the girls, and serving the west side! My commitment will be close to 24/7 as we will be living in community.
Jan&Feb. I will be on outreach with the students. Right now it's looking as if that could mean we will spend two months in Guatemala, but the destination could be a few other places.
March-May I will get to help the students debrief from what they learned the first three months, and what they experienced while living out of the country for 2 months. I will get to send the students off to whatever God is calling them to for the next step of life.
During the summer months I will get to help run a program called Immersion. Some of you might remember this playing a key part in my college-to-YWAM switch. Immersion is a ten day mission trip for youth groups, right here in Grand Rapids. the first three days is rustic camping in northern Michigan, and then the last seven days is living in community, serving grand rapids, learning how we can share and show Jesus everyday in our community. More Immersion info.
I'm very excited about getting to move to GR and just to see what all God has in store for my life, these students I'll get to share life with, and the west side community we get to impact.
Here's how you can help!
Prayers for the students, the community, the school, the nation we do outreach in, the BSHOP, etc.
Would you consider sponsoring me for one week?
Its a one time $90 donation with your email address. (Checks for tax purposes can be made out to Lighthouse Community Church with my name on the memo line)
$90 covers a week of the "staff fees" I'll be required to pay. It covers food, my housing, anything I would need covered while living on the West Side. This staff position is lieka volunteer position. I won't get paid and each month I will have to pay $360.
I'm asking for your email because during your week of sponsorship I'd love to keep you in the loop with what is happening that week with the school, and how you can pray specifically for me.
If $90 is too much, any donation would be greatly appreciated!! and send me your email address and I can make sure your getting updates and prayer requests as well :)
Thanks so much for your support now and all the support while I was in YWAM. It is needed and loved!! <3
