     I have been given an opportunity to be a part of what God is doing in the nation of Panama.  I'm so excited about this opportunity and all that God has done in my life to lead me here.  I want to share just a little bit about that with you, then share about this amazing opportunity, and how you might partner with me in prayer, financially, or both. 

     In August, I had a few things happen in my life that left me blindsided.  As I typically do I went to the cross and sought God’s guidance and leading in the issues I was facing. As this is the place I always start I usually leave this place before God really has time to answer me. This was the first time in my life I refused to leave and I just sat still before Him and waited.   God continued to take me through processing key issues that I have been struggling with and began to speak His truth into my heart in a way that really brought the restoration and healing I have desired for most of my life.   I focused a lot of my time at looking to God for direction in really grasping a hold of His destiny and purposes for my life.  One of my old small group leaders sent me a message spoken by Christine Caine about Embracing Your Place.  It really hit to the core of my being and I began to listen to other messages by her. As I heard her testimony, I became very interested in her ministry to those stuck in sex trafficking. I even went as far to think how cool would it be to give back and volunteer your time and services to a ministry like hers.  But then reality set in, finances, job, and life.  That just wasn’t something very realistic and I left that thought as "well, that’s a nice dream...maybe one day."

     At the beginning of October I spent some time in prayer and I prayed “God, if I could just stand still and wait on You and You would move this mountain and You work this out…Help me to make the right steps so that I could step forth into the very things that You have for me- Open the doors of opportunity- help me to proclaim Your Word and to walk in the path that You have. I want to begin to walk in that destiny You have for me- declare the way: guide me to all truth and use me for the purposes of Your Kingdom.”  Fifteen days later in the course of 24 hours several opportunities were dropped in my lap and I literally just sat in amazement and thought "is this God answering my prayer?"  So I said. "God, I’m going to remain still and You work this out if it’s You."  Well that He did and of course this is not what I was thinking of when I prayed that prayer.  All of these opportunites were the furthest from what I was thinking or even wanted.  

     I wanted to share with you one of these opportunities that God has set before me.  Grace Community Church is sending a Missions team to Panama from December 27th to January 5th and I believe that God has directed me to be a part of this team.  What better way to bring in 2014 then sharing a message of hope to a people that desperately need to hear it while also being able to show the love of Christ in practical ways. We will be in La Chorrera, Panama which is an impoverished slum area which is just outside the city. We will be working with 100 to 150 children that have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, and many that are trapped in gang life.  We will be given the opportunity to do a children’s camp, where we will get to share the gospel, lead them in worship, do crafts and just hang out with some of these children.  We will also be serving women who are stuck in sex trafficking (as you can imagine from what I shared above- I’m very excited about this part) and will be speaking to them about inner beauty and who they are in Christ.

     I am so excited to have this opportunity to fulfill the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19.  I believe that God has a divine purpose for me to be a part of this particular outreach team, and I would like to ask you to prayerfully consider how you can be part of this divine purpose with me- either by prayer, financially, or both.

     If God leads you to help send me to Panama financially, you can donate here.  If you'd like to get a tax deduction for your contribution please let me know and I will send you a packet with how to do that.  Also, if you would just like to pray for me please let me know and i'll send you some prayer points-- i'll need it- with this being my first trip and I hear its really hot- we all know we get cranky when its hot! 

      Thank you so much for your consideration whether it be prayer or finanically giving.  I can not tell you how grateful I am to have you partner with me and support me in this opportunity.
