"Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that it is in it, you islands, and all who live in them." -Isaiah 42:10


My Mission

For several years now, God has put it on my heart to go out into the nations to spread the love of Jesus. This last year I have grown so much in my own walk. This passion to dive deeper into God and teach about him has become a fire in my soul. I took a year after graduating high school to work and figure out what He has for me. After researching many different YWAM (youth with a mission) bases, the only course that has stood out to me is the program, Medical Compassion Discipleship Training School (DTS) at YWAM Marine Reach. So I applied and now I'm leaving in less than a month for this great journey. I am so overjoyed for this opportunity and hope it will allow me to press into God in new ways. I can already feel there are huge revelations and transformations in store each one of us who are going to learn and serve. God is going to use us in amazing ways to touch the lives of others with healing both physically and spiritually.

Through my DTS I will spend 3 months in lectures getting to know God on a much deeper level and learning how to disciple cross culturally.  On top of that, I'll be learning the basics in medical missions which I can apply on my two month outreach in the developing nations of the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. I know that Marine Reach has done a lot in the nation of Vanuatu over the years so that's primarily where we'll be reaching. We will be equipped with medical training in dental, optical, primary health care, as well as other things to apply it and assist professionals for those in need. Most importantly on our outreach, we will be loving on those less fortunate and bringing to them the hope for an eternal future with Christ. 

How can YOU be a part? 

So now I invite all of you to take a part in this calling for me to go evangelize with a compassionate heart across the South Pacific! One of the biggest ways in which I am seeking help right now is to raise the rest of the financial funds for my DTS, which will start October 16, 2017 and lasts until March, 2018. The cost shown covers tuition, accomodation, food, activities around the base, field supplies and transportation. I hope after reading, you feel led to become one of my amazing ministry partners! Each and every contribution is greatly appreciated. 

Please also keep me in your prayers as I go out! There is so much power in the name of Jesus and I believe He will be faithful to bring this plan to completion. 

God bless,
Naomi

"... and give us, your servants, great boldness in preaching your word. Stretch out your hand with healing power; may miraculous signs and wonders be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus." -Acts 4:29-30 (NIV) 



I've been thinking a lot lately about why I've been called into this area of ministry to reach the remote coastlands of the South Pacific. I do believe there's a reason. Since I was younger God has put the dream in my heart to go be a missionary in a foreign field, so about 6 months ago I actually took that leap of faith and applied for the Medical Compassion DTS stream in New Zealand. I've  started reading more about the nation of Vanuatu (made up of 80 islands) and how Marine Reach has impacted them over the years. Many people are still desperately needing the hope of eternal life with Christ so I believe God wants to use those of us who are willing and able to reach them and love on them. I also read somewhere that YWAM Marine Reach has given $47 million worth of medical care to those who have little to no access. This includes dental, optical, primary health care and other services. How amazing is that?! I've fallen in love with the area and people just through the bit of research I've done. The video at the header is of one of last years outreach teams so I hope that gives you an idea of what we'll be doing. :) 

In this past year, I've grown so much stronger in my faith by choosing to follow Jesus with my whole life, but that was after making many mistakes and trying to find satisfaction in the world. Truth is He could use me anywhere, here or there, but I believe there's SO much more transformation He wants me to go through. I am still building a strong foundation and identity in Christ and I can't wait to dive deeper. I want to be so rooted that nothing can shake me. It is by His amazing grace alone that He has brought me this far and is being faithful to bring to completion this dream. And while it's often easy to feel unworthy for such a task as loving others with Jesus' compassionate heart and inviting them to be a part of the eternal Kingdom, there is no greater passion in my heart then to honor God in this way. He has big plans for each and every one of us and wants for us to seek Him for that to be revealed. Psalms 37:4 says, "Delight in the LORD; and He will give you the desires of your heart." 

So, God willing, I'll be leaving 16 days from today on October 9. SIXTEEN DAYS! It just blows my mind away that this is becoming reality. In order to get there, I still have the above cost to raise, which is $4500 USD. This will be for the first 5 months out of the 11 and is all inclusive. I'm beyond grateful for the ways people are choosing to partner on this mission. Some of you have been so kind to give up your time to help me and some have given so generously. I still have a couple places to hit with this opportunity to be a part. Believe me, I'll need all the prayer and support I can get while I go out as well, incase you feel led to give later. But more than anything, Also, I've loved helping people out with little jobs lately, such as painting, gardening, and other little things, so if you need assistance with anything, let me know and I'll be there. Come and be a part and let me keep you updated (through email, letter, facetime or whatever works best for you). 

P.s. I'm still in need of a proper backpacking pack since space there is limited and it will be much easier for getting to my outreach location. If you know of a good place to get one for inexpensive or maybe have one I can borrow, I'd appreciate it so much!!

God bless,
Naomi
