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!
