Dear Friends,

            Hey everyone! As you know I am currently back in Kona, HI going through my DTS. It’s been a great seven weeks. So much has happened in what feels like a little amount of time. We’ve been discovering why God has called each one of us to this school at this appointed time. We’ve also found out where each one of us is going for outreach.  Along with everything our hearts have been ever more focused on a deeper intimacy with God.

            I myself have been learning so much. I’m becoming more rooted in my identity that God has made me for. For this first half of lecture phase Jesus has been refining me. He’s been picking out the bits and pieces of things I’ve been cleaning out of my life. It’s like a marathoner scooping a pebble out from his shoe. There’s less in the way to keep me from running harder for Jesus. With all the picking come replacements with nuggets of life. Those little truth nuggets have helped me to run my race stronger.

My faith has grown more and more. Especially after seeing God provide for all the payment deadlines that I’ve had so far. All of my lecture fees and a portion of my outreach phase fee have been paid for through his provision! Everyday I think I shouldn’t be here, but he thinks otherwise.

This last part of my fees will be the hardest to stay focused through. Not only do I have one last large payment to make, but I also have been trying to get a passport for the past several months.

It’s been a long arduous story. For some reason New Jersey native residents’ birth certificates don’t have enough information on them for the passport offices to use. I’ve been told numerous ways to get around it. Every circle I’ve gone around, for some reason or another, leads to a dead end. It’s so hard to work with something so sensitive as I’m traveling around the country going where God wants me. I ask that you would contend with me in prayer that I receive my passport before we need to head off for our outreach in Cornwall, England.

I’ve spent so much on expedited mailing trying to make ends meet. It’s been a pain. I also need to keep in mind that once I get back from outreach I must be able to fly back to the mainland. I could only afford a one-way ticket to Kona in the beginning. That shows how much God has provided me since then. So I need to buy another one-way ticket back.

My outreach team just got its, approximate, final estimate for the cost of our outreach phase. In total it’ll cost $5,307. Now a friend of mine felt God tell him to chip in $2,500 towards the total. That takes a sizeable chunk out. Though I still have other expenses, such as the plane ticket home, car insurance, and etc., which add on an estimate of $1,400. In grand total I need about $4,207 to cover everything for and during outreach, and to get home.

I know it seems daunting. It’s even harder for me to look at this number too. I have faith though. God doesn’t set us up to fail. He’s never done that to anyone in Bible nor to anyone I know. The only way this can fail is if I give up. He’s done so much to get me here, and I have no doubt he’ll keep to his promises. I will not fall out of this run! I will stay the course that he’s put me on.

I ask that you’ll talk with Jesus about donating, and contend in prayer for my passport to finally come before December 16th. We leave for Cornwall on December 17th. I know God has called me to Cornwall, England. God has a plan in store for me there and he intends on making it happen. Please ask him about joining us in this mission. Thanks.

You’re serving missionary,
