Who: Deserae "your favorite person in the world" Lyons :)

What: To spread the gospel in Ghana, Africa :):)

When: September 13-28, 2014

Why: [For the awesome version of "Why" Click this link to a video I made on "why" :) enjoy ]

I've always thought going to Africa was something God had planned for my life, even years ago. However, after recieving salvation in December 2012, the Lord told me to wait upon him to go to Africa. After being saved for 1 year the Lord opened the door for me to go to Ghana, Africa with Abundant Life in Roseville,CA, under the leadership of Lori Angulo.


Needless to say, I feel called to Africa and I know this trip will be the first of many, over my life time.  This is a mission trip to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.  As one of the leaders on this trip said, "Some go to build homes, some go to build schools, but we go to build the Kingdom."  Spreading the gospel is our primary goal, but we will also be helping in other areas too. Every person on the mission team has different skills and assets that can be utulized differently.  For instance: if someone is a nurse we will use her for medical purposes, if someone is a plumber then he will be used for plumbing, etc., etc., etc.  Likewise, the gifts of God will be used the same way. Paul said in Ephesians 4:

11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

Some may preach, or teach, or lead worship, or whatever area they are gifted in we will utulize each others stregnths. 

I love evangelizing, and have only done so in California thus far. I am ready for this next chapter of my life, with the spirit of the Holy one who lives inside me and the whole armour of God <3

I have such a passion for Africa, and the people there. I know not everyone is called to Africa, or even outside their country for that matter. The Lord has given me confirmation that I am suppose to be in Africa, and I feel like my heart is already on it's way there.  



Sowing a seed: If you can sow any sort of seed, you would not only be helping me, but you would be sowing a seed into the Kingdom of God.  The people who will be touched by this, is countless.  Even a seed of $5, adds up. If you feel it on your heart to sow a seed, any sort of sponsorship will help. This is the breakdown of what you will be helping fund: Roundtrip airfare, lodging, in country travel, and food. I need to have my money raised by June 15th, 2014, and have a deposit by the end of March.


Prayer: If you cant help financially, that's okay too! I ask that you sow a seed by interceeding in prayer for the whole team preparing for this trip, the team who will be working with us in Ghana, and for the people of Africa. 


We serve an AWESOME GOD!!!!!

Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
