Youth with a Mission Journey
Organized by: Jeremy Pendleton
I am raising funds to start my journey as a missionary with the organization Youth With A Mission. YWAM was started back in 1960 with a main focus on getting the younger generation involved with missions work. It now has people from early as 9 years old to up to 90 years old involved with missions in over 180 countries. They have schools for discipleship, evangelism, as well bible studies. I have been feeling God leading me to go to places around the world that have not had a chance to hear about what Jesus Christ did for us. I have been looking into several organizations and church groups that I can be affiliated with to make this happen. One of the things that draws me to YWAM is the humbleness of everyone that I have met inside of YWAM. EVERYONE including founder of YWAM, Mr. Cunningham, has to raise their own monthly support. Every ministry and every base that has been planted around the world is all with funds that the missionaries of YWAM had to personally raise to make it happen. There's no governmental structure that some of the money that we raise goes to someone sitting in a nice office somewhere, the money we raise goes towards our living, eating and any ministries that we want to start or are apart of. I am trying to raise money towards my DTS (discipleship training school). It is the first step into becoming a full time missionary with YWAM. I will be going to a DTS in Curitiba Brazil. The School is only going to be about $1200-$1300 USD. But the plane tickets that I have looked up could be up to $5000 USD alone. Thanks for all your support! God Bless you!
