What it Feels Like to Be FULLY FUNDED!!
When I got accepted into the world race it was made known that the number that I had to fundraise was $17,000. It seemed impossible, but I never doubted once that I wasn’t going to make that amount. I was determined because I knew that the clear voice of God was telling me that this was the next journey for me.
I was amazed at the overflow of gratitude from my supporters. I was overwhelmed with joy to see Gods love in people that I knew dearly and people that I didn’t even know. People always told me that fundraising that much money was going to be a trial in itself but honestly I got nothing but joy from it because it taught me to solely rely on God though it all. I never feared, doubted, or was stressed because I knew that He would provide somehow.
Once I got to about $10,000 things began to become more real for me. I was so close to being fully funded and I started to become nervous because not making my funds were the only thing holding be back from going. Meaning if I didn't make it I would get to be with my family, my friends, my life here… It made me realize that oh shoot I am really going, I am $7k away from saying good bye to everything and hello to spreading the good news to people all around the world. It was scary to think about that in just 90 short days I will be leaving everything behind and picking up my cross to follow Jesus. It was something that I began to pray through… and now that I am FULLY FUNDED I CANNOT wait to leave and spread the word!!!! I think everyone has thought about the fears of leaving but we all know that fear is not an attribute of God and with God there is nothing to be fearful about. This journey is about to change my life in unbelievable ways and I could not be more excited for it.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, to all of my supporters!! If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be going on this mission trip! You all made it happen and it brings me to tears knowing that you all came together to make my dream come true! Like I said I have been overwhelmed with joy, you all have made me so happy and I will be forever grateful! I will be sending constant updates and my only request is for you to keep me in your prayers daily! I want to also give a huge shout out to my momma she has been nothing but supportive of my calling and it takes such a strong women of Christ to let her daughter go travel all over the world to spread the name of Jesus. You have been my biggest supporter and I thank you for that!
90 days until launch, God is so good!!!
Serving God is such a privilege (:
