Today, I come to you all overjoyed as I pack my bags and get ready to move to Montana. Yes, I said Montana…and yes, this sunshine loving, California girl is pulling out her winter coats and heading north, way north.
It has been my genuine and heartfelt desire over the past few years to live life on mission while demonstrating the love of Jesus through the talents He has blessed me with. Since receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Communication from California Lutheran University in August of 2011, I have found myself blessed with opportunities to learn and grow in different work settings and I strongly believe that each of these experiences has prepared me for a role in a story much bigger than I could have ever imagined.
And here is where the story gets really good…After deliberate prayer, mentorship and meditation, I have decided to faithfully pursue a new opportunity to combine my unique professional skill-set with missions. I recently discovered 100 Fold Studio, a non-profit architecture firm that provides innovative and affordable design services to charitable organizations around the world. They are committed to demonstrating the love of Jesus by designing safe, efficient, and inspiring structures for all, regardless of religion, ethnicity or tradition. On June 1, I will be moving to Lakeside, Montana to serve with 100 Fold on the Youth with a Mission (YWAM) campus. (100 Fold Studio partners with YWAM and all their employees go through YWAM’s discipleship training school for cross-cultural missions training. The offices of 100 Fold are on the YWAM campus.)
My Role: I will serve as the Office Administrator & Donor Relations Officer at 100 Fold Studio. It will be my job to share the story of 100 Fold Studio through digital media while representing their gospel centered mission and values. I will also be a liaison between 100 Fold and its donors while providing general office support and administration.The initial phase of my commitment is a three to six month internship. I will then participate in a six month Discipleship Training School (DTS) where I will spend four months studying the Bible while equipping myself with the necessary tools to better share the Gospel while on mission. The final two months of my DTS will be spent serving overseas in international missions. Upon my return, I will make a two-year commitment to 100 Fold Studio and YWAM and be welcomed on as a staff member.
And here is the really exciting part…This story includes YOU. Would you consider partnering with me & 100 Fold? The operational costs and salaries of 100 Fold Studio are supported solely by donations. As the majority of 100 Fold projects serve the poorest nations in the world, they rely on financial partnerships from churches and individuals who have a desire to invest in what God is doing around the world. With faith in God as my provider, I am raising $2,000/month in support for the duration of my time with 100 Fold. It is my hope that you would partner with me as I embark on this new mission, whether financially or in prayer I truly value your support.
So my dear family & friends…this is my new adventure. A complete and total faith walk, an act of obedience to the call on my life, a grand adventure with our loving & faithful God. Come alongside me and watch this adventure unfold. I am only one small piece in a much larger story that is taking place at 100 Fold…so please PRAY BOLDLY with me as I step into a new season of life. I believe God is forming a team of financial supporters, prayer warriors, sojourners, and friends who simply help to spread the word. Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement!
