An Exciting Update!

YWAM

August 6, 2015

Dear Family and Friends,

I hope you are doing well! I am writing to you today to share with you an excitingIMG_6750 opportunity that God has given to me and I would like to invite you to join with me and to be a part of it as well.

It is the moment that you say yes to Jesus with all of your heart, no matter what the cost will be or where He will take you but you just know that He is calling you and you must respond with YES! God brought me to Romania in April 2007 and it has been 9 incredible years of His faithfulness. My heart is filled with so much gratitude of the different ministry opportunities that God has given me over the years with teaching English, loving on orphans, Roma gypsies, praying for the sick at a cancer hospital, and serving with outreach teams and also with the DTS (Discipleship Training School) ministry.

This spring God gave me an incredible opportunity to go to the YWAM Amsterdam base for a 6 week training course called Shine Seminar which was a very life changing time as God revealed to me how His heart breaks so much for the injustice issue of human trafficking. During the time I was there God confirmed to me that He has called me to continue to serve with YWAM but now with a specific focus to reach out to girls who have been trafficked and are wounded by this injustice issue. God has also put on my heart to continue to serve with the discipleship ministry along with a Justice focus as well.

During the last couple of years since I have been serving with YWAM I have been placed in different leadership positions which I did not feel ready for yet , however I still chose to take those steps of faith and go for it anyway even if I wasn’t ready or not. God has led me to apply to do a 3 month leadership training school and with great joy I would like to share with you that on July 21st I received my acceptance to the YWAM secondary “School of Ministry Development” at the YWAM LA base.

On September 24th I will fly to Los Angeles, California where I will be at the YWAM LA base until December 18th. The total cost for the school is 3,100 USD ($4,045 CAD) and my plane ticket is $595 CAD. Would you please prayerfully consider sowing a seed into this leadership and ministry development training that God is leading me to do? I honestly cannot do this alone but I need people like you to join with me in your prayers and to sow a financial seed in this season of transition that I am in right now.

I would like to thank-you in advance for your prayers and any gift you could help me with for the school.

Blessings,

Andrea

I am from Whitby, Ontario. I have lived in Romania for 9 years as a missionary but I am currently in Canada on a sabbatical break at this time. I have also lived in South Korea for a year and I have also been to Russia, Uganda, Albania and the Czech Republic on short-term mission trips. In 2012, God also gave me an amazing opportunity to go to Mozambique for the Harvest Mission School with Iris Ministries as well. I love children, reaching out to people who are in need and vulnerable, I have a passion to fight against the injustice issue of human trafficking and to simply share the love of Jesus wherever I go. I also love cats too and I have a cat of my own named Minnie!
