At this point in time the question is an urgent one for my son Navid who is just completing an archaeology degree. It is clear that there is a tussle going on between his passion for archaeology and the realisation that it is difficult to pursue a career in this field. I remember a recent conversation I had with him when he said that finding the thing you really want to do in life was the million dollar question when you’ve discovered what that thing is you can spend the rest of your life working towards
In contrast a few days ago I had a wonderful email from a nephew which told me very clearly that he had discovered his purposes and how he was going to achieve his goals. You can't help but notice in his message the deep conviction that comes across from knowing what he wanted to do with his life.
As some of you know this August I will be leaving England to go to Micronesia, the reason for this is that I will be attending Iris Ministries’ missionary school for 9 weeks. The aim of the school is to train up a group of missionaries who have a heart to go to the unreached places of this globe and/or to the darkest bits. Therefore, upon completing the 9 weeks, this is what I aim to do.
In order to do this I still need to raise a further £865 to pay the remaining tuition fees for Micronesia.
My heart is very much to go to the places that the world has forgotten about. Having spent time with such people in Southern/Eastern Africa, Eastern Europe, and Asia I find great delight in sharing the love of Jesus with these people and watching him transform their lives. Furthermore, I desire to empower the communities that I will be living in, particularly women, seeking to further their advances in education and employment, whilst integrating myself fully into the environment I find myself in.
This summer I will be working to earn money, but due to the constraints of when I get paid it won’t arrive until after the deadline for the payment of tuition. Therefore, if you feel compelled to invest in the work that I will be doing whilst in Micronesia, and as a result what I will be doing in the subsequent months and years, then that would bless me immeasurably. Alternatively, if you would prefer to be a long-term partner, donating a specific amount each month then that would be equally incredible.
I’m incredibly excited to be embarking on this journey. From a young age I have had a heart to serve God cross-culturally, and now that the dream is coming into fruition I have to pinch myself at just how good it all is. For me, this is very much a vocation, and something that I feel called to for the long run.
Therefore if you would like to partner with me and invest in what lays ahead you can do so either through paypal:
Simply type in your email address, and then mine (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the amount you would like to give.
Or if you prefer to do via bank transfer just email me (email@example.com) for my bank details.
If you have any further questions that you would like to ask me, or sign up for updates while I’m away then do not hesitate to drop me an email, I will be more than happy to answer them.
I would like to thank everyone who has blessed me and covered me with prayer already. It truly does mean the world to me that you are willing to bless what I am doing and I feel very loved as a result.
