I don’t really know what I’m doing, in this moment. I was just minding my own business…listening to Desert Song, when God interrupted. I was singing….and as I sang, “My God is the God who provides” and “There is a faith proved of more worth than gold” and “God is my victory and He is here” God started to talk to me. He started to ask me, “Do you believe this? Do you think I can provide? Is your faith worth more than gold? Or money? Do you believe that I am right next to you helping you do this?”
Talk about conviction. My original plan after YWAM’s Musicians DTS was to travel to Perth for another YWAM program called Art Evangelists school. After coming home and going through all the bills I owe, seeing how much my car insurance costs, and having no job, I began to doubt that it would ever happen. I claimed that it would be more realistic, and I should just stay in Denver and do Phase II in Arvada.
Tonight, God is convicting me…of having little faith. Lord, I apologize for not having faith that you would get me to Australia. There was a reason why at graduation I stood up there and with no problem at all the words “I plan on going to Perth for the Art Evangelists school” flew off my tongue. There’s a reason you put this on my heart.
Here’s the deal. I am currently job hunting. I’m trying to babysit anywhere I can while also looking for jobs at fast food places, restaurants, and retail stores. I even looked at MaidPro. I am doing everything I can to find a job to get me where God wants me. But, guys, I can’t do this alone. I know I have plenty of missionary friends out there who know how this goes.
The school in Perth will cost $4110 for the lecture phase alone. I can only imagine outreach being just as much or more. So double that, plus it is in Australia, so I’ll need a plane ticket out there.
What I’m asking is, if the Lord puts in on your heart to support me going on this wild adventure with God, I would be so blessed. If I don’t make enough to attend this school in Australia, I will take it as a closed door, and wrong timing. But don’t worry, your money will not go to waste! I will still use it towards Phase II here in Denver.
You all mean so much to me, and I can’t thank you enough for how much you have supported me in the past. Missions is my passion, and it’s a difficult situation asking for help. However, I know my God is who he says he is. And He has challenged me to this task to “Just see what happens, Dee.” I could use as much prayer as possible!
Thank you all again :)
Much MUCH love<3
