This past month I celebrated 1 year in full time missions (365 days) and what a year it has been!
|Me and the outreach team I led.|
I was able to staff our Music and Missions DTS, a 5 month discipleship school where students grow in their relationship with God whilst developing their talents and learning how to use them to impact the world.
As part of this school i was also able to lead a team of 15 on outreach through Mexico and Belize for 2 months. During this trip we were able to connect and share Jesus with thousands of people, build 5 houses for families in need, work with local schools, orphanages and churches.
After staffing DTS I played in the worship team for our spring Mission Adventures program, Mission Adventures is a short-term mission trip experience for high school students and this program has a special place in my heart because the first time i came to YWAM Ensenada I was as part of this program.
Since mission adventures finished I have been working in the Media department on base, making new promotion videos about our Schools, this has been such an awesome opportunity for me to use something I love doing to raise awareness and further the kingdom.

During this time i also have been working on becoming an official builder for Homes of Hope and on July 20th I will do my first build as a trained builder.
To continue volunteering out here I need to raise a support network. to celebrate my first 365 days in missions and to cover the cost of another 365 days i need to raise £3650/$5700, this will cover my basic costs for the year. This covers £160/$250 p/m for rent(inc. utilities and food) and also covers debt built up since moving.
What will the money go towards?
Over the next year I will be moving into staffing another Music and Missions DTS here in Ensenada and I am so excited to see the transformation that is going to happen in the lives of the students who come and dedicate 5 months to developing and growing in their relationship with God. i will also be leading another outreach team for 2 months, hopefully to Uganda. I will also be more involved with Homes of Hope, building more houses, now that I am trained to build.
