of $6,000 goal
I will be spending this summer in Southeast Asia with Frontline Missions' FX training program. For 8 weeks, I will study language, live and minister alongside Southeast Asian believers, be trained and mentored by experienced, cross-cultural Gospel workers, learn to navigate foreign culture and customs, and build relationships in order to share the Gospel. I'll be participating in all of these activities so that I can be immersed in practical missionary experience and explore whether God would have me serve long-term in an environment that may be hostile to the Gospel.
Why Southeast Asia?
A pioneer missionary once wrote, "Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of Hell." This trip will take me to places where there are few church buildings or chapel bells in order to teach me the unstoppable power of the Gospel and the certain advance of Christ's Kingdom. I am so glad to be able to minister with the FX Program for two months in Southeast Asia. I'm excited to see how God is transforming lives in Southeast Asia, just as He is around the world.
Our team of four is made up of students and young professionals. We are led by Frontline Missions staff members and veteran missionaries.
In early June, the team will convene in South Carolina for several days of training and preparation. After completing our training, we will depart for Southeast Asia. By the time of our departure, I need to raise $6,000 to cover the cost of the trip. These funds will cover international airfare, ground transportation, housing, a language tutor, meals, insurance, and other expenses for the 8-week trip. I'm praying that the first $2,000 of the $6,000 total will come in by April 15th, in order to cover the purchase of my round-trip airfare.
I know that this is a large amount, and the timeline is not long, but I have seen God provide in the past, and I'm trusting Him to provide again. Would you contribute by giving a gift that will help send me to Southeast Asia?
