Dreams & Visions "In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Acts 2:17"

First things first, THE LORD IS GOOD! For the past two and a half years the Lord has taken me on an incredible journey of following him. For those of you who don't know I have been with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) for over two years now. I did my Discipleship Training School (DTS) in the fall of 2014 and came on staff at the Pittsburgh base in April 2015. I have primarily been building relationships and working with refugees here. It has been so amazing! When I first came to YWAM Pittsburgh for DTS I came with a heart to love, to learn, and to serve God wherever He would have me. I honestly didn't know that two years later I would have such a heart for people and for them to know God's heart for them. My passion, now more than ever, is to see people know God and to fall in love with Him... the truth of who He is, not who people can make Him out to be sometimes. Which leads me to my next point...

Last year I went to Boston and did a Discipleship Bible School (DBS). I went into the school knowing God was going to do something. I went into it knowing I would learn a lot, but He did more than I could have ever imagined! He did more than teach me what the Bible means and I got more than just knowledge. He completely transformed my worldview and my view of who He is. Going through the whole Bible and learning the truth about God's character and applying His truths in my life transformed me. I left Boston a different person. I left Boston with a new relationship with God and a closeness with others I never had before. Not only did my heart for others grow, but the reason WHY I love has changed. Sometimes we can be selfish and focus on what we can get from people and from God... But there's so much more to this life than the things we can get from this world. God wants to reveal Himself in every aspect of your life, in the mundane. He has something for you right now. My life changed last year and it all started with making a choice to dive deep and study the Bible for three months straight.

During the school the Lord started tugging at my heart and speaking to me about coming back to Boston to staff the DBS in the future. I remember specifically saying to God, "but God I have a life in Pittsburgh, I have things planned, people I love, and you called me there!" He was also using my leaders to speak to me about surrendering and giving up everything to Him. So, I wrestled with God for a few weeks over this and finally came to a point where I was like, "God, I will go wherever you will have me." As soon as I had this heart change the Lord released dreams, visions, and direction into my life! I hadn't dreamed this way in years! The Lord loves to dream with His children. He was reminding me why I even joined YWAM in the first place- to see people come to know Him.

We met these girls while evangelizing on a college campus in Boston!

Fast forward 7 months and I have fasted and prayed, talked with my leaders, and heard from the Lord! I am getting ready to head to Boston in less than TWO WEEKS! I am so excited about this next season of my life. I cannot wait for what the Lord is going to do through this next DBS. There will be three months of lectures and class and then an outreach to another country! For the spring school we are exploring and praying about opportunities to minister to refugees possibly in Europe and for the fall school we will be going to India! I am excited about stepping into something new and want to stay humble and in step with what God is speaking. He has given me such a heart to see people's eyes opened to the truth about who He is, what He has to say, and what He has done for all time. If you could please keep me in your prayers during this time I would greatly appreciate it. I am so thankful for all the prayers and support I have had from everyone over the past two and a half years.

YWAM is a volunteer organization and all their missionaries raise their own finances. I have an amazing group of people who partner with me monthly and pray for me continually! I am currently fundraising and raising more monthly support. If you would like to join in with what God is doing around the world through His Word and His people, please consider partnering with me financially! Please pray for me and the rest of the DBS staff as we get ready for the school to start. Sometimes I can't believe God has given me such an amazing life! He has truly given me dreams and visions for what his purpose is for my life and I am so honored to live a life of love for Him. If you would like to be added to my monthly update list please let me know! :)
