My name is Kennedy Chastang, I am a 15 year with a heart for people. For as long as I could remember I have wanted to go on a missions trip to serve others. For a few months I've been asking God to help me grow my faith and to help me find my purpose in the church, because I felt I didnt have a role. The day the South Africa trip was announced, I wanted to go to a different church that day, but my mom went to Word of Faith anyway. Because of that, and the fact that the trip answered my prayers, I knew that this missionary trip was a God send.
As soon as I told my mom I wanted to go, I immediately became cautious. I kept asking myself, "what if it isn;t safe". So I decided to pray. I didn't want to override the feeling of fear because maybe it wasn't my time to go. But the more I prayed and thought about it, the more I realized that what I was feeling was not from God but was the enemy trying to keep me from doing what I believe will be a life changing experience. Now that I've gotten past fear, I am more than ready to take the next step.
My heart is fixed and I am ready to go. In speaking with my parents about the trip, they challenged me to believe God for the resources to help fund this missions trip.
As I prepare spiritually, I am asking for you to consider supporting me financially. Your financial gifts will help to cover the cost of the trip and incidentials needed. Thank you in advance for your support and your prayers!
