Friends and Family,
For anyone that doesn't know who I am, I'm David Walker. Stories are best told from the beginning so here we go:
First off, I want to thank each and every person who has been part of my life and actively involved in the journey thus far through support and prayers.
Starting the semester, I got connected to a church in the area called WayMaker Church and the church put on an event for all college students to attend and there I got connected to the College Pastor. 4 months later, he led me through a study of the Bible called the Metanarrative, showing that the Bible is not meant to be read as individual stories but as one collective story of God's redemptive plan for all humanity using broken individuals. The main theme all throughout scripture was that Gods desires to be known among the nations.
He ended the discussion with a closing thought from 2Peter 3:12 asking, "If you are looking forward to 'the Day of the Lord,' what are you doing to hasten it?"
That made me think that each breath I take in is given to me by God because there are still people who don't know about him.
He followed that up saying that, "There are tribes, tongued, and nations of people who do not know the name of Jesus Christ" and asked the question, "What are you doing to change that?".
Right after he gave this message, he was just informed that a spot for one male on a trip had just opened up because someone had dropped out. I took time to pray about this, to see if that's where God wants me and also to consider the decision as I had intended in doing an internship in Atlanta for the Summer but after leaving that session, I felt that there was nothing else I'd rather do.
This summer, from May 22nd to July 26rd, I will be in South Asia with the International Mission Board (IMB) obeying God's call for us to be reaching an area of the world where the Gospel is not known or taught. Think about what that Gospel has done for your life. It is baffling to me that people do not have that or even have knowledge of that redeeming love story and may never will unless someone tells them. I want to do this for the reason that I have personally seen and experienced God moving in my life just this past year alone and I want to share the joy I have and want to see their lives be moved as well. We will be sharing the Gospel as well as coming alongside and growing in community with hopefully an ERUPTION of believers that come out of our trip. After that, an emphasis by on ground missionaries will be put towards forming a church in various communities.
My one request for you is that you would consider making an INVESTMENT:
Do something today that you will see the payoff in the future-
Commit now to be in prayer for our team of 40 students, all who are convinced of this truth enough to give up their summer and chose to be obedient to God's call for us believers.
Please pray for traveling safety and protection
Please pray for relationships and conversations to come.
Start NOW to pray for lives to be CHANGED.
In the book of Revelation, it states that there will be people of all tribes, tongues, and nations praising God in Heaven and I want to be a part of God's plan for opening their eyes to Him.
While abroad, I would love to keep you updated with what the Lord is doing. Message me with your email if you would like to receive updates!
Thank you for reading this and allowing me to share this with you!
