“And then I heard the voice of the Master: “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?” I spoke up, ‘I’ll go. Send me!’” (Isaiah 6:8 The Message)
I have clearly heard, the voice of my God. It is also written,
“There’s a fiercely loyal minority still—not many, perhaps, but probably more than you think (a remnant AMP). They’re holding on, not because of what they think they’re going to get out of it, but because they’re convinced of God’s grace and purpose in choosing them. If they were only thinking of their own immediate self-interest, they would have left long ago.” (Romans 11:5-6 The Message)
Remnant: “What is left of a community after it undergoes a catastrophe.”
Anchor Bible Dictionary
Guys…God has raised me to be fierce, strong, and loyal. I've accepted His call for my life. Recent situations have forced me to ask myself, “Do I really mean it when I say I’ve accepted His call for my life? If God asked me to do anything…would my answer be conditional? Would it be dependent upon the details of the task?” This is where the rubber meets the road with me and to do what I say I believe in. This is no joke…what is happening in our world right now is undeniably of catastrophic proportions.
I will DO SOMETHING.
As a civil volunteer, I will be training in the areas above to be deployed to Iraq, or Middle East region, to assist in ANY way I can. I’ll be trained for the worst, understanding I will be bringing my strengths, my weaknesses, tenacity, and a fierce trust in The Almighty! But above all, I will bring Good News. I can’t even begin to imagine if the devastation were here, in my home, would someone come to care for my child? For me?
I am asking for your help. I will need to pay for my own expenses. My goal is to raise funds to pay for ALL expenses associated with training, travel, and deployment. I am estimating $10,000.00. However, if costs are less, I will consider moving towards their Chaplaincy Program. Otherwise, remaining donations will go directly to the organization. If everyone can donate a little bit, we can make this happen!

Will you please help fund me? Those that know me personally, know I have never done or asked anything like this before. I’ve considered asking for financial support to make an album using this community resource, but I’ve decided to use my “one time to ask” for this opportunity instead. I am asking this once, to please prayerfully consider your financial support of ANY amount. And God knows I need your prayers….
Lastly, I ask, please refrain from expressing any and all negative or discouraging comments regarding my decision to go. You may not understand why one with a family at home would deliberately go into a situation like this. But I have sensed a call to go…and I cannot ignore it. God has been preparing me for something like this my whole life. God has never let me down. Ever. He will continue to direct my steps. Know I am at peace and ready to serve.
I will be posting updates, as I can, to Facebook and my blog. If you would like to follow, visit www.CarrieHartMinistries.com. You may safely subscribe to receive each post via email as well as the ministry’s newsletter.
