Last week I attended the YWAM Together conference in Kansas City, MO. Throughout the packed week I connected with friends from Lausanne, learned what YWAM is doing around the world, and got a taste for the future...meaning...
I'm excited to share that I will be serving with YWAM Lausanne, in Switzerland! I have wanted to combine what I studied and have worked professionally in (interior design) and missions and it’s amazing that God opened up that opportunity during my DTS. Seeing the timing of this need and joining at just the right moment, it is hard to deny that God was working all along.
Lord-willing, my full time launch will be in January 2017. I will first participate in the Ministry and Leadership Development School (MLD) which concludes in a year long commitment to join full time staff in Lausanne, where I would work on the housing project.
What gets me excited about this opportunity:
- Combing design + missions
- Serving in a critical area of need - the housing project
- Building (literally) into the legacy of YWAM Lausanne which was established in 1969
- Reaching out locally in Lausanne
- Investing in the lives of students in the training programs
- Participating in an international community
I would not want to undertake an opportunity like this without a team of people who are committed to join in prayer for me and the ministries of YWAM Lausanne, encourage, challenge, and financially partner. In doing so we become a team, joining together in the work that God is accomplishing.
If you would like to join my monthly support team, or are interested in what I am doing, I want to get together with you! Don't be surprised if I contact you in the coming weeks, I believe in meeting face to face and sharing life.
