It’s been a bit since I have sent an update and since I have been out on an international mission. So I invite you into my little world to get a closer view of what’s been going on and to let you in on some exciting news…..
For a little over a year, I have been managing an upscale consignment boutique in Atlanta. I am super blessed to wake up every day and LOVE to go to work! If you know me, you know how much I love fashion. Every day I get to style women and love and encourage them. And the favor of God in my job has blown me and everyone around me away! I have had extreme financial breakthrough this year… debts cancelled and paid off! (Thank you Dave Ramsey!)
This past year, I taught a class on Missions at Bethel Atlanta School of Supernatural Ministry, did logistical planning of two international mission trips at BASSM, taught multiple fundraising workshops for missions at Bethel Atlanta, mentored BASSM students who are called to the nations, joined the missions board of Bethel Atlanta, moved to the most amazing riverside community that we call the “Garden of Eden” and traveled to Trinidad on a mission trip. So as you can tell, it’s been a really amazing year!
I am so excited to announce that I will be travelling to Thailand, Burma and Cambodia on August 7 for two weeks. I will be joining Georgian and Winnie Bannov of Global Celebrations and their team to take joy and the love of the Father to the land that I love the most. I have been asking Jesus for the next step of my journey and He said “My joy will be your strength”. I felt so compelled to go with the Bannovs because they carry such extreme joy and love. And I really want to experience how they walk in that level of joy in a land that is so oppressed.
I would love for you to get involved in any way you feel led. I would love your prayer! Your excitement! Your encouragement! Your prophetic words! Even your monetary support if you feel led to give! Your investment in this mission and the call on my life to take the Father’s love to the beautiful people of SE Asia will certainly not return void. I pray for a hundred fold return for all that you sow into my life and this mission.
I have this fun game I play with Jesus…. I dream with Him about things I need for a trip , make a written list and then let Him provide extravagantly! And He always surprises me beyond belief. He has already been so extravagant this week in his provision. I wrote out a list of payment deadlines and then a wish list of items I need to travel and within two days someone gave $750 toward my first payment and someone else surprised me with a brand new fancy camera. (It was on the list!) So I am super excited to see how He pours out his provision as I prepare for this strategic mission to the land that stole my heart a few years ago.
I invite you to come on this journey with me to Asia and into the Father’s heart as we love the beautiful people there. I promise to keep you all updated! Stay tuned on Facebook and Brave New Girl Blog for updates and pictures. I am honored to know you all and call you friends and family! I love you all!
Blessings and abundance!!
