Lindsey Goes To Vegas
Organized by: deleted deleted
EVENT DATE Jan 26, 2015
I have been accepted to participate in the Abolitionist Discipleship Training School with YWAM Las Vegas. YWAM (Youth with a Mission) is a global movement of Christians from many cultures, age groups, and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. We unite in a common purpose to know God and to make Him known. The Discipleship Training School is a 5-month, life-changing program, designed to help people “know God and make Him known.”
Why Las Vegas? Vegas is known as the “sin city” full of gambling and prostitution. The purpose of the Abolitionist DTS is to engage, disciple, and send out ministers of the Gospel both locally and internationally to those who are enslaved physically and spiritually and only God’s love can free them. The Abolitionist DTS is 5 months long incorporating classroom learning and local and global outreach. During the lecture phase we will experience an extensive and intensive training on. We will be discipled on topics like the abolitionist movement, hearing God’s voice, the heart of God, evangelism, spiritual warfare and worldview. During this phase we will also have the opportunity to do out reach in the city that emphasize practical ways of stopping human trafficking in Las Vegas and abroad. During the next phase we will spend 8 weeks overseas in either India or Nepal, working in red light districts, which are full of enslaved prostitutes. Human trafficking is a huge problem in these countries; a good portion of the economy is based on prostitution. While overseas we will work with local ministries where we will minister in a variety of ways including evangelism, awareness, campaigns, working with children of prostitutes, teaching, work projects, worship, prayer and other creative means of combating human trafficking.
The dates of this DTS are January 26-June 9 and the amount of money that I need to raise is around $6,895. This money will cover lecture fees, books, food, housing, travel, airfare, visas and vaccines. I am also raising an additional $1000 to cover my health and car insurance and other things I might need while in Las Vegas or overseas bringing my total to $7,895. I am asking for your help and for you to partner with me both prayerfully and financially.
