More Training Pics...

Owen and Sophia (other trainees' kids) came to play with me on Friday :)

Saturday a few of us (12 actually) went to a Scottish festival 
in Franklin, NC

The team going to Scotland: Scott, Jennifer, John Spencer, and Sophia Stadalsky and my roommate Megan Kibbey

The Wilkins, Philip and Autumn, and their four kids are Ethan, Peyton, Morgan, and Owen. Such a fun family!

Missionaries Representin'

My new friend, Peyton Wilkins :)

Scottish game: Log Throwing

Fun times with fun people! 
Most importantly, we are consistently learning and growing here at CIT. God is revealing to me so much more about who I am in Christ and who he is. This preparation to go serve overseas is priceless. Please pray with me as I seek more intercessors and donors. God's provision is certain.

Missions Training at CIT

Summer Training at CIT in Union Mills, NC
Training consists of myself, along with 28 other people, taking 5 classes: Equipping for Cross-Cultural Life & Ministry, Spiritual Formation, Dynamic Teams, Interpersonal Skills, and Facilitating Church Planting Movements. Outside of class you can find us playing volleyball, swimming, relaxing, building lasting relationships with one anther, and encouraging each other in this journey toward the mission field. It has been extremely refreshing and exciting to be around so many people who know exactly where I am; same struggles, fears, sacrifices, joys, and passions.

Support Needs as of now:

I need to raise the remaining 40% of my monthly support. I am almost there...almost England bound! This could look like: 

54 people committing to $25/month or

27 people committing to $50/month (not many at all!) or 

13 people committing to $100/month

Obviously any amount helps tremendously. It's so fun to see God bring together so many people for one purpose: "Taking the Gospel to the nations." I am praying for the Holy Spirit to move others to join this team of furthering God's kingdom in Colchester, England.
