Dear Friends and Family,

I hope you are well. I want to share some news with you! I’m taking my next semester away from college for an awesome opportunity. From February 9th through May 9th I will be serving on a missions trip with Youth With a Mission (YWAM). YWAM is a global movement of Christians from around the world, with different backgrounds and ages, who come together to spread the word of God.

I will be joining the YWAM Brussels base in Belgium. I will be trained to use dance as an outreach tool to minister to people. I will be taught how dance can be used to open conversations and be able to reach people that we otherwise may not have the opportunity to meet.

Brussels is considered the “capital of Europe” with a large melting pot of people. French, Dutch, and English are the most widely spoken languages and dance can minister beyond language barriers. I’m praying that God will use me to communicate what he needs to say not only through words, but through movement! Art is a great way to start conversations, and many may be more receptive to prayer and teachings as well. During the last six weeks of the program our team will travel to places like the Netherlands and Norway for outreach projects.

While I know God is leading me to do this, it requires a big step of faith. This is my first missions trip and I will be away from my family for three months! I’d love your support in two areas.

First, will you pray for me? Please pray that God will use this trip to draw me closer to Him. Also, please pray that God will use me and the team to reach people with the love of Jesus through the Arts. Pray for health, safety, and for all the details to unfold as God desires.

Secondly, would you consider supporting me financially? I am required to raise the funds necessary for the trip. The total cost for the trip is approximately $3,500. This includes the tuition for the program, room and board, travel expenses, and other necessities. The first half is due up front and the second half is due right before we travel to our outreach locations.

I have been working hard during the last semester of college to prepare for this trip. I would be really grateful for your financial partnership. To help financially, please send checks payable to: Emily Schaad (5255 War Paint Place, Colorado Springs, CO 80922). Or, you can donate right here in GiveSendGo (see GiveNow button)

While there are many emotions associated with this trip, I do know one thing for certain, God has called me to YWAM Brussels, and I am ready to go with an open heart. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I pray that God blesses you in 2019. I would love to hear from you!

With love,
Emily Schaad
