This past year has had both its uplifting moments and its challenges, but through it all God continues to be faithful. He has taught - and continues to teach - me patience, complete and utter trust in Him, and the true meaning of self worth. Through everything, God has opened an unexpected door for me with a program called Alliance of Transatlantic Theological Training (AT3 for short). This is a program that is based in the United Kingdom whose goal is to raise up leaders of the next generation in the Church and ministry. Although this program is based in the UK, it holds a partnership with Converge. I have been accepted into the two year apprenticeship program, in which I will work with a church in a position of leadership, while also pursing a higher education in Biblical Counseling. At this point in my journey, I am praying for the city and people I will be serving and am looking forward to learning exactly where my placement church will ! be.
I am taking action as an apprentice with AT3 in the United Kingdom because I truly believe that is where God is calling me to go; He has opened an unexpected door and is tugging at my heart strings to follow Him. As I continue to seek Him, He continues to reveal His plan for my life. God has given me two prominent passions: art and a love for His people. One main goal that I have is to build relationships within the community. God will open doors for me to connect with lost ones through the means of art…whether teaching a class, going to an art museum, or simply providing materials for people to express themselves. I am excited to see how God will work within this country in which only 3% of the population is Evangelical Christian. Everyone deserves the opportunity to experience God’s love and grace.
I am also just joyful for the opportunity to grow in my faith and learn how to help people apply biblical teachings to real life (ex. finding their self worth in the Lord). I believe AT3 will allow me spiritual, mental, emotional, and cultural growth; this program is a stepping stone for the journey that God is calling me to.
Thank you for your support - both prayerfully and financially!
