Dear Friends and Family,
I'm excited to fill you in a little on what has been going on in my life. This summer I had the opportunity to go to Santa Cruz, Bolivia, again. It was so great to continue to build upon the relationships me, and the team from Arrowhead Bible Camp, had made in years past. I saw so many amazing things there and was able to meet many new kids. We ended up with quite a large group this year and were able to stretch out to more orphanages. We had just enough people to bring down ALL of the supplies the missionaries needed inside our luggage. How cool! Thank you so much for your prayers and support. If you would like to hear more about the trip and see pictures, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be more than happy to share with you.
And so, right now I find myself back in the states preparing myself for this fall. A few weeks ago
I received my acceptance letter to attend Youth With A Mission's Discipleship Training School (DTS). I'm very excited about this opportunity! Youth With A mission is an International program to equip young people with the skills and knowledge to go abroad and share the love of Christ.
The DTS lecture phase is 5 months of intense studies and schooling. The base I will be attending is YWAM of the North-woods and is located in Weyerhaeuser, Wi. I've been involved with other programs of theirs over the past year and love the campus. However, after the 5 month classroom phase on campus, my class will be going way off-campus! We will be going overseas to live and minister in another culture for two months. Last year they had two groups go out, one to Thailand, to teach english and Bible, and one group to Morocco. Which involved a more quiet approach to sharing God's word, as it is a closed Muslim country to Christians. I'm very excited about this trip as my heart has been drawn more and more towards missionary work throughout the past two years!
And so, now I find myself packing my bags for September 20th and DTS. I'm asking you all for your support. That you keep me in your prayers as I pursue God's will for my life and jump back into the school scene after not being in school for over a year. Also, for your financial support in this. Since this is an intense schooling and heart searching program they do not allow you to work while in DTS. And so along with the acceptance letter came the ever-lovely price tag of 3,200$ for the tuition fee along with an extra 2,000 or more for the outreach phase. After working for a year I had saved up enough money to pay my way, with minimal support from friends and family to go back to Bolivia and so eluded having to send out a bazzilion support letters. (All of you who know me know how much I hate having to ask for money) But if I am to do this I am trusting God will provide for this tuition fee!
So please, keep me in your prayers! If you feel God leading you to support me financially, you are very welcome to. Jst send a check to: Cheyenne Clark/DTS 1214 20th street Cameron, Wi 54822 All moneys will go directly to my tuition account. Thank you all for your prayers and love! Please continue to pray for me for my worry and anxiety I'm feeling. That I would give them all to God completely!
I end this with my favorite verse, which I call my “life verse”. 1st Thessalonians 5:24- “The One who calls you is faithful and He will do it.”
With Much Love! ~Cheyenne
