I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
[Philippians 1:3-6]

I have exciting news to share with you! As of March 1st, I became an Appointed Global Servant to Bolivia through International Ministries! This means that myself and my MPT has raised at least 25% of my personal support goal (PSG)! Being appointed allows me to focus 100% on building my missionary partnership network of prayer and financial support.

It truly is amazing to see how God is providing and opening doors for me to share my story and about my ministry to individuals and churches throughout this year and people are responding through prayer and giving! This month I have had the opportunity to travel coast to coast to share my call to missions at American Baptist Churches and an ABW annual conference! I have enjoyed meeting more of the American Baptist family who share the same mission to be salt and light in their neighborhoods and around the globe!

I am already over half way to being commissioned to Bolivia! In order for me to start my ministry my PSG percentage needs to be at 100. My goal is to be at 100% by the Fall. Please pray with me that this goal will be met. Thank you for partnering with me in prayer and giving! Your financial partnership is enabling me to go and for us to join God at work in Bolivia! I’m excited to begin the work that God has called me to and share God’s love to at-risk children and women through the ministries of House of Hope.

I’ll be at the World Mission Conference this summer in Green Lake, WI, July 4-8, 2018. The theme is “You are the salt of the earth” (Matthew 5:13). I encourage you to attend. It’s a great way to connect with global servants and international parters from 20 nations including Lebanon, Chile, South Africa, the Philippines, Hungary, Brazil, Haiti, Thailand, Mexico, Bolivia, and Malaysia. Also, it’s a great time to fellowship with other ABC family members and learn about how God is at work around the world through International Ministries!
