Hello! My name is Emma from Washington State. Nine years ago I felt the Lord call me to a country in West Africa named Burkina Faso. I had never heard of it before, but as the Lord kept speaking to me, I felt my heart becoming more and more captivated by it, hoping that someday "when I grew up" I would go there and make a difference. This dream sat on the shelf all these years, and I ended up joining Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in New Zealand to do a Discipleship Training School (DTS) and outreach in the South Pacific. After DTS, I went back to NZ this January 2017 to staff for the next school. Over the last six months the Lord has been stirring this dream, giving more vision, a deeper heart for the nation, and the green light to pursue going now. I will be partnering with a few missionaries I have been able to come into contact with, and I'll have the opportunity to learn and contribute at the same time! Please prayerfully consider joining me on this next adventure! Thank you for your prayers and financial support!
