What I'm Fundraising For

I will be Studying Abroad in Rome in the Spring of 2017. My program is a Christian Based program where I will be attending a local university and working with several different Missions Programs. When I finish my program in Rome I will fly to Uganda to join a group of students from my home university for a 2 week missions trip. My trip is tentatively 130 days in Rome and Uganda. I know the logistics of this trip are insane but I trust God to continue to provide as he has placed these plans in my life.

Why This Is Important To Me:

While in Rome I will maintain my full time student status while furthering my education, my cultural experience and my faith and personal growth. I will have the opportunity to work with a lot of diverse people. I will have many missions opportunities including working with Syrian Refugees, teaching English, and supporting local (Rome) missionaries. While in Uganda I will have the opportunity to work with Show Mercy, an established missions organization an hour out of Kampala. While there I will have the opportunity to work with children outreaches, elderly support, and supporting the local organization and their staff. I am excited and blessed to be going on this part of the trip with some of my closest friends and peers.

How I Will Use The Funds:

Rome Program Fee: $4000 US to Rome flight: approx $1500 Uganda program Fee $1100 Rome to Uganda flight: approx $700 Uganda Visa: $100/ Rome Visa: $200 Personal Expenses (Food, Transportation, Vaccinations etc.): $4000

It's amazing to be able to write down numbers and see the reality of this trip be able to actually happen! God has blessed me with so many people to support me! Thank you to everyone who has supported me financially and spiritually! I hope you will continue to pray blessing over this trip and over me! This really is Gods Will because there is no way this would be happening with out him! I feel so blessed!

I have been going through a devotion for missions trip prep. The book is a 3 part series, 1st book "Called" for before the trip, 2nd for book "Challenged" for during the trip, and the 3rd book is "Changed" for after the trip. Every devotion has some interesting stories, some good advice, and at the end gives you a few things to think and write about. As I get further into the devotions I realize more and more how important it is to actually take the time and write about how I am feeling and the stages of life I am going through. Today I was challenged to write my testimony. My goal is to have that fully done to present before I leave. My testimony is important and I should take the time to put it into words. *Side note for those who aren't religious, you also have a story to share. I encourage you to write it down also!

I don't know when the right timing to share this news will be so I guess today is just as good as any other day. My plan was study than travel but Gods had a bit of a different plan all along. Nothing is set in stone but the ball has started rolling. I will still be doing my study abroad trip but when I am done with school in Rome I will be traveling to Uganda for about a two week missions trip. In the last 2 weeks Gods made it very apparent Uganda is suppose to be apart of my time abroad. It's hard because adding one more layer to this trip means more money to earn and raise but I have faith in God. He has set this plan into motion in my life and therefore I know he will provide. So surprise guess I'm also going to Africa... #OneStepCloserToRome #OneStepCloserToUganda #BrokeCollegeStudent

I have no words. I am humbled and blessed by those who have continued to encourage me and support me. Today I received 2 large support gifts. Last week I received a Study Abroad Scholarship. I continue to be amazed by God and how he works. I wish I had more words to describe how I feel. But for now I overwhelmingly feel blessed by those around me.
