The month of July for me was a whirlwind of traveling, and connecting with friends and family. YWAM San Diego Baja gave me the opportunity to travel with the “Mobile Team,” this team consisted of two representatives from three different bases, San Diego Baja, Denver, and Lausanne Switzerland. This six member team traveled across the country following Christian Music festivals. At each festival we set up a table and shared about our mission organization, but more importantly we were there to hear people’s stories and pray for them. Both vendors and patrons of the festival came and spoke with us about their lives and struggles and asked for prayer. Over and over again we were able to pray with people, and see people experience God. I met up with the team in Harrisburg Pennsylvania and road tripped with them from there to Denver Colorado. I was able to see some family and friends as we traveled which for me was something that was unexpected and a blessing.
I arrived in Texas a week or so ago and have been visiting friends and family here as well. It is always great to come back Texas, I love it here, but I am excited to be moving more permanently to Mexico. I hope to continue to send you good news from Mexico, and to see what God continues to do in your life.
When I get back it looks like I will have two main responsibilities. One will be to help get ready for the next bible school that I will staff. We will be looking at the curriculum and our grading system. I am especially excited to look at these things because I will be able to use some of the skills I acquired during my four years of college. The other area that I will be working a lot in is the kitchen. Our base has a lot of short term volunteers that come to help support our ministries, which creates a ministry of hospitality on base that I think is very important.
It is funny to see how God works even though I am not working as a Coach/Teacher I will be using my education degree to help teach people the bible, and my three years working with the Mustang Island Conference Center has prepared me to help manage a kitchen!
If you are close to Brownsville I would love to see you, and if not I would love to hear from you. I hope your summer has been a good one.
Please continue to pray for me and my work. I am still required to raise my own support in YWAM even though I am committing to be a part of the staff. My living costs look to be about 700 dollars a month and right now I have 300 dollars in monthly support.
Pray for the CSBS staff that we can prepare for the upcoming school
Pray for the students that are thinking about coming that God will open the doors that they need opened if they are to attend
