Mission Help Needed

I have been a resident of the Perkins, Coyle area for the past 15 years. I was saved as a teenager and immediately was encouraged to read my Bible. God gave me a hunger for His word I had a lot of questions about the customs of Israel and the Jewish people.

As Christians today we should be in prayer for the peace of Jerusalem; and understand the role the nation of Israel plays in these days.

In September I was privileged to attend an international school of ministry in Arkansas. It was there that I had the honor to meet and hear a pastor from Jerusalem who told me of a mission trip in March 2014 to Israel and the city of Jerusalem.

I immediately began to pray for the lord to direct my path and let me know the direction He had for me at this time. I asked God to show me if I was supposed to go. The same morning that I was praying that prayer a friend of mine called and said the Holy Spirit had awakened her and told her that she was to help me go to Israel. She didn't know what I was praying and I didn't have any idea she was being led to help me get there. It was truly CONFIRMATION from God to go.

God led me to Nehemiah 2:20 " ... The God of heaven Himself will prosper us therefore we His servants will arise and build .... " That was it! He was sending me to get a better understanding for building His Kingdom.

The approximate cost of the trip including air fare is $4,300. I know without a doubt that every need will be met; because I am called to go. Should you be led to help, a mission fund account has been set up at Payne County Bank, please see Monta Brown. Some go, some sow

I appreciate your prayers and your support as we go on this journey. As you rise up with me to reap the harvest and bring souls to Christ, we will be blessed in a mighty way. Selah. Blessings upon you and yours.
