NEPAL MISSION TRIP 2017



Hi friends!

I have some very exciting news to share! I was recently accepted to go on a mission trip to Nepal this summer! Yes, Nepal! That's in Asia, if you didn't know :). It is a creative exposure trip, meaning we will be working as a team to create engaging projects on the field. The missions organization I will be going with is called Illuminate Nations and the trip will be two weeks long, from July 9-23. The team is made up of videographers, photographers, and writers. Together our team will be filming a documentary and writing a coffee shop magazine! How awesome is that? I will be going as a writer, but I hope to learn more about videography and photography, so that I can continue to expand my knowledge in those creative areas. Also, lately I have been working on hand-lettering, design, and illustration, so hopefully I can incorporate each of those skills into the magazine I will be working on as well. What can I say, I just love all forms of creativity! Why not use it all to bring glory to God?! OH AND we will be having a time of prayer and worship everyday, so I may even have the opportunity to lead worship while I'm there. Wow, God just knows me so well, it blows me away. It's like this trip was made for me, and I can hardly contain my excitement!

I've travelled to several countries throughout my life and I've gone on multiple mission trips but over the past couple of years, I believe God has given me more clarity into what I should actually do when I go and He has developed my creative abilities to prepare me for it. My new goal is to make sure I use my creativity to further God's kingdom wherever I am in the world, because I feel like He gave me my set of gifts for this specific purpose. Therefore, I will work hard wherever He leads me and ensure my skills are being used to their greatest capacity. So trust me, this will not be just a "fun vacation".  It will be a life-giving experience, with a purpose to tell untold stories through media outlets and bring hope to the people of Nepal. Most of all, our team will have the opportunity to bring the gospel to the unreached and show the love of Christ!

Guess what? You can be a part of this too! Not only can you partner with me financially, but also in prayer! Then, when our creative projects are complete, you will be able to view them knowing you helped make it all happen. In fact, it would not be possible for me to go on this trip at all without your support! I'd love for you to join my team and play a role in this grand adventure. The media is probably the most impactful way to share the gospel in this generation and we are expecting these projects to reach farther than we could even imagine. Of course, the goal is not for us to receive any recognition for ourselves, but rather to raise awareness and motivate others to change the world. So what do you say? Would you like to join me?

I would greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog link with your friends/family to help spread the word. In order to make this happen, I need as many supporters and prayer warriors as I can get.

Let's be world changers together!


Always love,
