Dear friends , 



I hope this message finds you healthy, and full of peace and joy in this unique season. I am writing to you because the Lord has given me a clear word about my next season, and when I prayed about who I should invite into the journey with me, He showed me this community and to ask specific friends. Before I tell you the exciting news, I first want to catch you up on how I got here.
I was 19 years old when the Lord told me to pack up my bags and move from the DC area in Northern Virginia, to Dallas, TX to grow deeper in the Fathers heart in the community of Upperroom. Although it was a huge and unexpected leap of faith, I did exactly as He asked me. I began to volunteer and serve in any way I could, and through that soon recognized that I have a heart to communicate the Gospel and see those around me grow in spiritual maturity. I’ve seen personally what the Gospel has done to my life and I know it has the power to transform every person no matter what they’ve been through. Due to the Corona Virus outbreak I’m currently back home in VA. Although I know that God has called me to Dallas long-term, I’ve had the sense for some time that there are things that He wants me to do short term that I was unable to see due to holding onto things too tightly that were hindering me from receiving what He has been trying to give me all along. I didn’t recognize it until he exposed my heart and showed me where I have allowed things to take His place. One night I remember waking up to the voice of Lord saying “Joel you have been asking Me for direction without yielding to my convictions”. Shortly after He gave me a dream of me as an eagle, and this eagle ended up gathering snakes in the land and decapitating them while standing boldly over them. The Lord said, “Joel this is what you’re going to look like when you rely on Me to stand boldly over the lies that the enemy has tried to hold you down with. It’s time for you to carry my love”.
  I woke up the next day and was baffled by the level of clarity. I then asked the Lord ``did you just say carry my Love?” The name sounded familiar and soon after I remembered that a lot of people I met when I first moved to Dallas were with an organization  called the Circuit Riders who tour the nation preaching the gospel at college campuses. The name of the tour is called Carry the Love! So I said to the Father, “ if you are calling me to become part of Circuit Riders and Carry the Love, I need you to confirm it. I will only go if it is your will”.
  Holy Spirit as my witness, less than an hour goes by after that prayer and I look down at my phone and see two notifications of two new followers on my Instagram; Circuit Riders and Carry the Love. Both organizations followed me on Instagram literally right after I asked God to confirm?! The Lord then told me that He is calling me to “ go out” of the Upperroom for the next season and equip others the way that his disciples did. 
  Shortly after a buddy of mine from the DC area who happens to be going to college in Boulder Colorado was back in town and gave me a call asking me to become part of a zoom call with leaders in faith who are on college campuses. This call was with none other thanCarry the Love”.I had the honor of listening to different leaders from different college campuses around the country proclaiming and giving testimony of how the gospel has impacted their campuses. My heart was extremely gripped. I’ve had a heart for the gospel to touch the lives of men and women who are in college academics for a long time and didn’t really know what I could do with it, besides pray. I knew this was another sign so I just began to thank God. 
 Later that day I ended up on another zoom call with a sister in Christ who followed me on Instagram through those accounts, and the Circuit Riders HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) team. There was so much that the Lord confirmed in this conversation. Honestly as a follower of Christ I never decided to look around and see the example that I set to those around me, in the Black community especially, I just pursued the Lord with everything I ever had. As an African-American man there is an example I set to others and was burdened by the Lord to reveal the kingdom of God to my community and from that perspective like never before. It was at that point during this phone call that I asked the Lord why do you want me to go. The Lord soon reminded me that He invited me to grow in boldness to proclaim His Gospel. 
  I am blown away just how life changing the Love of our God is. I am more than pumped yet humbled to be used by the Lord to proclaim this good news to the world but in the season specifically alongside Carry the Love tour to college campuses. So with all that being said, the Lord has called to become a student at the Circuit Rider school in the fall, grow in boldness, and preach the gospel on college campuses. I’m writing you to ask if you’d pray into partnering with me in prayer and finances to send me into this mission field! Below is a breakdown of the financial requirement for me to both, the two week summer training program, as well as six month full training in the fall and spring outreach. Thank you so much for your investment!
Love you,

It’s a blessing to read this morning about the wonderful things you’re doing to spread the word God. ????????Prov. 3 Verses 5 to 6 [5] Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. [6] In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
