filling you in on a secret…
its been a while since i’ve written about it, but if you’ve been here for very long, you know that my heart is in South Africa and i am called to full-time missions. for a little over a year i’ve been prayerfully seeking God’s will and His timing for something to come together.
i am not wanting to get ahead of myself, cause nothings final, but i suppose now is as good a time as any to tell you about what i am currently pursuing. you see, i have been in discussions with Thrive Africa, an organization dedicated to “training up Godly leaders in South Africa” about a full-time position in South Africa. the position is as a graphic designer that would oversee the design of school curriculum, brochures, tshirts and all kinds of fun stuff. in South Africa!
this would be a commitment of at least 3 years.
while i still have to be selected and nothings final, after their preliminary questioning, they have officially asked me to begin the formal application process. this is sort of a big deal, because the process as a whole is fairly extensive and for them to be this interested in me – is very cool.
couple things: if chosen, they ask that i take a 2-month trip over there. for me to feel things out and for them to feel me out. my current employment is willing to work with me – in the event that it isn’t a good fit for me – i can return. something else that is like, “uh, okay God, You’re gonna have to do something BIG” is that this 3 year+ mission requires about $1300-$1500 a month in financial support – to keep me (ANY missionary) over there.
this is why i am filling you in now. this is gonna take a lot of prayer. and if it comes together, it is gonna take a lot of green. ultimately God’s got this – so prayer is the most important. even prayer for right now as i am filling out and sending the formal application.
GO HERE to stay in the loop and join my support team. whether it is for prayer, financial or both, i would be grateful, if you were to sign up. (even if you have signed up in the past – please do so again – promise, last time).
