What up, blog world?!
As many of you know, I moved to Georgia a few months ago and have officially started my job at Adventures in Missions as a Gap Year Mentor. If you are like, “what the heck is that?”, click here to know more. I am still adjusting to living in Georgia and it is becoming more and more like home every day. The weather is hot and humid and the people are kind. I’ve yet to have a Georgia peach, but I’m sure I will before summer is completely over!
I have had a lot of questions recently about the fundraising I am responsible for while on staff at Adventures in Missions. I figured it would be easiest to write a blog and put the information out there for people to refer to, if questions arise.
By accepting the job as a Gap Year Mentor with Adventures in Missions, I took on the responsibility of forming a team of monthly (or one time) ministry partners. The money that is donated to Adventures in Missions (on my behalf), is used to purchase my flights to and from the field, pay my paycheck and other overhead costs.
All funding for staff goes by the fiscal year. My goal is to raise $1,000 per month. I have had about $430 committed monthly, which means people are pledging to give that each month. I have also had a lot of one time donations, which is amazing! Because of these donations, I have almost met my goal for the current fiscal year, which will start over October 1st! I am still praying for more monthly or one time supporters. I am passionate about discipling others and using the gifts the Lord has given me. I am glad to fundraise for that which the Lord has given me the opportunity to do. If you are interested in giving, click the “donate” button on my blog. Also, feel free to subscribe to this blog in order to receive constant updates from my time at Adventures in Missions.
My squad leaves for Cambodia in less than 2 weeks! For those that don’t know, I will be going out with my squad for their entire first month on the field. I will be dragging out my 65 liter pack and loading it up! I am so excited to go back to Cambodia and get to spend time with Gap K and continue leading and discipling them. I will also get to go out and meet them on the field in January, again at the end of February and then again in May! I genuinely love my job and the opportunities I have to invest in this next generation and the Kingdom around the world. I feel humbled and very blessed that I get to do this. I am being stretched and I am growing! Honestly that’s what I want. I never want to stay the same. I always want to be growing. My cup is overflowing.
Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns! I’d love to chat!
Until next time…
