of $25,000 goal
The Lord has led me to work with Frontline Missions International in North Africa for the next two years. While there, I will teach English, work on my Arabic language skills, grow in my ability to adapt to the culture, be mentored by experienced, cross-cultural Gospel workers, and build relationships in order to share the Gospel. I’ll be participating in all of these activities so that I can continue to gain experience in what it means to serve long-term in an environment that may be hostile to the Gospel.
Why North Africa?
In the 1st century, when the whole world was the mission field, North Africa was one of the first beachheads of Gospel advance. Christ was building His church in North Africa, and men and women--by life and sometimes by death--were giving bold witness to the power of their risen King. Now in the 21st century, North Africa is once again a beachhead of Gospel advance. People, who for so long have been held captive by spiritual darkness, are being set free by the power of the Gospel. One-by-one, men, women, and children are turning to Christ, and churches are cropping up across the countries of North Africa. This makes North Africa an ideal location for me to learn from both veteran missionaries and North African believers. I have already spent two months in North Africa with Frontline, and I am so glad to be continuing with the FX program by serving for the next two years in North Africa.
I have already begun work on the CELTA course in order to get certified to teach English as a foreign language. This is an intensive language-training course but will be essential as I plan to work as a cross-cultural English teacher. Then in January of 2018, I will depart for North Africa. By the time I depart, I would like to raise $25,000. This will include the cost of all domestic and international flights, the CELTA course and associated living expenses, insurance, and all of the costs that come with setting up a home and ministering in North Africa for two years.
