Greetings! We are Andrew and Anna, recent graduates of New Mexico State University and married since June of 2017. 

While studying at NMSU we both enjoyed serving in campus ministries. We each were able to go on a mission trip that not only strengthened our own faith but also gave us opportunities to serve others and share our faith (Anna in Lake Tahoe in 2015, and Andrew in East Asia in 2014). In 2017 we graduated, got married, moved to Texas, and promptly jumped in to busy careers in the hospitality industry. While we are grateful for our jobs and the life we have here in Texas, both of us have felt a longing to take more time to grow in our faith together--to experience how God is moving around the world and be a part of it!

For this reason, we have made the decision to resign from our jobs, put our stuff into storage, and embark on a six-month mission experience with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) based in Maroochydore, Australia! In a nutshell, we’ll be spending three months at the base in Australia alongside other students in an intensive Discipleship Training program—learning more about God’s character, theology, and world cultures. The next three months will be spent visiting four or five countries to put what we learned into practice. While we will not know the specific countries we will be visiting until a later time, we can expect to encounter many different cultures. For example, last year our program served in Thailand, India, Greece, Uganda, and Brazil. In each country we will spend 2-3 weeks seeking opportunities to share our faith as well as serving and supporting the long-term missionaries who reside there. 

As part of this team, we are seeking financial support to help cover expenses of the trip. There are numerous costs involved including tuition for the YWAM training, airfare, Visa expenses, health and travel insurance, and general living expenses. Our budget calls for approximately $17,500, and we plan to cover at least $10,000 of that out of our own budget and savings. While deciding to do this trip has a large cost, we are confident that this is the right opportunity for us and that the Lord will provide what we need. Would you prayerfully consider giving $50, $100, or even $200 towards this work? Of course, whatever amount the Lord would lead you to give is the right amount. While asking for monetary support is always uncomfortable, God has shown us that many people look for opportunities to invest in the kingdom of God. For instance, we have experienced incredible joy from giving to a few of our friends who are serving the Lord around the globe.

In addition to requesting financial support, we are also in need of prayer support, which is arguably even more important. Pray for Australia and the other nations we will visit. Pray for the people that we will meet. Pray that we would bring encouraging words, our hearts and hands ready to serve others. “Finally brothers, pray for us that the message of the Lord will spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you.” (2 Thessalonians 3:1)

Dear Supporters and Prayer Warriors,

What a whirlwind of a week it has been! For weeks we have been planning our outreach to Brazil, Uganda, India, Thailand and Fiji. Last Friday, we found out our YWAM base had decided to no longer send teams to Asia due to the Coronavirus. This was out of caution to avoid to possibility of us getting the virus and unknowingly transporting it to another country. 

Our team came together in prayer about whether we should go and if so what it should look like. Everyone on the team believed we should still go on outreach, and almost everyone felt we should go to South Africa in place of India and Thailand. We believe this is God’s will for us and have decided to step out in faith. So we are officially going to Brazil, Uganda, South Africa, and Fiji! Unfortunately since our flights to India and Thailand were already booked, we lost about $1,000 in non-refundable tickets and had to pay an additional $2,000 for new flights to and from a South Africa. We are re-opening this page in case any of you would like to contribute to help with these additional costs for us or for our team. 

Above all, we would appreciate consistent prayer:
—Pray the Coronavirus will be stopped and that there will be no new outbreaks in Australia or our outreach countries. 
—Pray for protection from sickness for our entire team as we travel (we will be gone from April 13-July 3rd. 
—Pray for financial provision for our entire team, as everyone lost a significant amount of money on flights. 

Thank you so much for the ways you have and are continuing to support us through prayer and finances. We can’t wait to share stories from outreach with you!

In Christ,

-Andrew and Anna
