I am so excited to announce my acceptance to be an intern for CMC (Church Multiplication Coalition) in the Philippines for 6 months. In June of last year, I asked in faith, for God to place a specific country on my heart to begin praying and believing for. That night I had a dream in which I was discussing, with a friend, my desire to continue traveling but didn't have any idea where to go. My friend looked at me and told me, "Ashley, go to the Philippines". I woke up the next morning and couldn't stop thinking about and wondering if God had really answered my prayer that quickly. For two months, God continued confirming the call to go to the Philippines through dreams and conversations with people.
Over the last couple of months, I have been on two different trips to the Philippines, both confirming my call to the nations. In November I spent two weeks on the island of Bohol and in January I served in Ifugao. God marked my life during my two trips in the Philippines. Witnessing thousands of people surrender their lives to Jesus has been one of the most amazing things I’ve ever experienced. There was not a day while I was there, that lives were not being brought into the Kingdom. There were men in jail, whose stone cold faces were transformed into soft, joyful smiles, as they received Jesus as their Lord. Children and adults received physical healings in their bodies; deaf ears opened, blind eyes opened, sickness and pain, gone, in the name of Jesus. Addictions were broken and many were set free, as testimonies were shared every night. Students and teachers, confessed their sins and believed in Jesus, in the middle of their school classrooms. This is only just a glimpse of how the Father moved in Bohol and Ifugao.
Each trip I have fallen more in love with the people and the mission of CMC. I already have learned so much about evangelism and church planting, and I am excited to learn more during my internship. During my internship I will be evangelizing, preaching, traveling and doing crusades. The only expectation I have for my internship, is to see God move in mighty ways, bringing in His harvest. I know God has called me to go to the nations and freely give what I have freely been given. There is such joy in carrying the name of Jesus to people who don’t know Him and I am humbled that the Father has entrusted me with it.
My internship will be June through December 2019 and I want you to be a part of the adventure with me. The total cost of my internship is $6000 for 6 months. I am asking you to prayerfully ask God how you can support my internship. Will you give a one time gift of $1000 to support a month of my internship or a monthly gift? Whatever you give, I know the Lord will bless. The heartbeat of our Father is the souls of men, and I would love for you to be a part of the harvesting of souls.
