My name is Emily. Age 22. Missionary.I have been a full-time volunteer in Townsville, Australia for the past 2 years. While being here I have also had the priviledge to do missions in multiple cities throughout Australia as well as working on and off a medical ship in Papua New Guinea. My main purpose here was learning how to do full time ministry for a long-term basis. I have learned how to disciple youth (Staffing our DTS program ), draw up injections (volunteer and lead teams aboard the M/V Pacific Link ) and serve two nations that are not my own.
For a year now I have felt the need to do a Biblical Core Course with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) . This is not just a course where you read the bible but rather one that teaches you how to inductively study each genre of the bible as well as how to apply it to your own life and equip you to teach others. The school begins in April 8, 2016 however, my committment here in Townsville does not end until December so I am doing everything I can from here to fundraise for this course that I have been accepted into and BELIEVE it is what God has spoken for me to do.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." Hebrews 13:8
The Cost that I listed covers the following:
$3,000 (roughly) - plane ticket back to Florida (visa expires in March 15th so I must leave by then)
$6400 USD - for the cost of the Biblical Core course
$3,000 (roughly) - for round trip to Lausanne, Switzerland and back to Florida. (course starts April 6th, 2016)
$1000 - This is the current cost of the Overseas Health Insurance for duration of the course
$150 - The remaining amount will be used for travel expenses and emergency money
Please think about and pray about supporting me financially to do this bible school. Not only will it strengthen my personal relationship with God by helping me to have a more solid foundation in the word but it will also equip me to be a better teacher, mentor and missionary so that I can continue to evangilise and disciple the nations (Matthew 28:19).
Thank you in advance for considering and look forward to seeing miracles happen in these next 7 months! :)
