Hi All!

We are getting so close to my physical departure date, and I am just so pumped!

Coming back from Pattaya this last week has me feeling like jetlag won’t ever go away! So, I took advantage of being up before the sun this morning to journal about my current journey!
In Pattaya, I had the sweet gift of getting to connect with my new friends at Shear Love, and those I’ll be linking arms with over in Pattaya! I not only got to taste some incredible authentic Thai food, but I also got a real taste for the heartbeat of that ministry and the partnerships already working down there!

What has been funny to me is the amount of people who were surprised to see me back in AZ in less than 2 weeks! Although I brought many things with me on that short expedition, I am returning home for just a few short weeks so that I can continue preparing for my National Counselor Exam for the last step in obtaining my licensure, here in AZ!

I’ll take the NCE exam March 11, and hope to be on a jet plane headed to Bangkok in the few days following.

While I continue adventuring in the present – studying, packing and preparing – I am exceedingly expectant for the things that The Lord is preparing for me!

Feel free to climb aboard with us as I continue my fundraising, studying, and packing-dance parties!

Hi Friends and Family!

In the past few weeks the plans and details have been coming together so seamlessly it feels, and there is nothing more assuring than that THIS is exactly what God is calling me to!
One of those details that has come together is finding this platform, Give Send Go, that I will be using to raise my financial needs for the year-commitment I made to work as a Clinical Therapist with Shear Love, in Pattaya, Thailand!

As I continue gathering my team of support - through financial gifts and diligent prayer warriors, I want to be transparent about exactly what I need!

I am about half-way to my fundraising goal of $16k for the year.  This is amazing!  That means I just need to secure the other half of that commitment in the next month or so.  This can happen through either monthly recurring gifts or one-time gifts to help with my start-up costs (i.e.. - my work visa, plane ticket, and transportation needs).  I am confident God will continue to provide for all of my needs as He has already been doing so far.

How can YOU help me?

-If you have already verbalized a financial commitment, you can now complete that process by following the steps listed below. 
-If you are still considering a financial gift, this is the place where you can make that donation when you are ready.  


        But guess what?
Anyone who by December 31st makes a one-time gift of $300 or more, or begins a recurring monthly gift starting in January 2019,  will get a free Thailand-design shirt!
        
 Everyone loves free stuff right?  It's my small way of saying thank you for joining my team and being part of this new adventure.
 
How can you give?

1 - Right here on this page - you can easily click "GIVE NOW" - at the top OR on the right side of this page.
2 - Enter the $ amount you want to gift, then decide if it is a monthly recurring or one-time gift.
3 - Input your information, then hit "SUBMIT DONATION" - it's that simple!


Thank you for your support and encouragement so far! I am looking forward to how God continues to move, and use ordinary people like us, to do extraordinary things!


Faithfully,
Krista

PSA: I'm Moving to Thailand!

I am excited to share with you all about an opportunity I will be stepping into. At the beginning of 2019, I will be moving to Pattaya, Thailand!

For a long time I've had a passion for counseling and walking with others, but more recently pairing that with people from different cultures. The various short-term missions I have had the pleasure of being apart of have continued to greatly water that seed.

My heart is drawn to finding ways to love and lead, while discovering grace and truth through healing in the deepest places of their lives.

I just finished my Master of Arts in Counseling from Phoenix Seminary, and in the past couple of months I have been asking the Lord- “where to next?”

In my asking and seeking, God kept challenging me to open my eyes and heart to places outside Arizona. So, hesitatingly, I began looking at counseling jobs in other states - not really mentioning anything to anyone, because I wasn't really ready to press any further than that. And, "what if I don't get any job offers outside the state?" - then, I won't have to tell people I might be moving, and then just kidding I'm not...

So, here we are, a few months down that road of preparing for this new journey, wherever God would lead. My passion, skills and heartbeat are running parallel with an opportunity that fits the supply to the demand. I believe God is calling me to work as a Clinical Therapist in Pattaya, Thailand, with Shear Love. Shear Love and their stateside organization Free Rain Intl., is a global, faith-based organization that provides resources and initiatives to aid those enslaved, impoverished, and exploited. By using discipleship, education, job-skill training, and clinical counseling, they help individuals heal from the painful experiences of sex-trafficking, abuse, addiction and poverty. They are given a hope for a future full of promise.
I am continuously humbled and honored to be a part of something so powerful, that out of anyone, The Lord is calling me qualified and ready. This very opportunity to utilize my training and passion, far exceeds what I could have imagined for myself at this point in my story, but man am I ready to pack my camp and head out on the terrain! I look forward to the moments that will stretch, strengthen and mature me personally, professionally and spiritually.

My goal is to begin my work in Thailand this coming March. Over the next few months I will be preparing for this transition in many ways, while raising financial support for the 1-year commitment that I have made with Shear Love. I look forward to sharing more of my story with you! I will be hosting a few information-sharing events for anyone interested in learning more. I’m so thankful for the prayers and encouragement of so many as I step into this next season of my life.

Faithfully,

Krista
