Recently I have had to deal with the fact that my time here in Bolivia will come to an end and I will have to move on to something new, I just wasn’t sure what that was. Of course being the kind of person I am, whether you call it ADHD, a dreamer or whatever, I had about a million ideas of what I wanted to do. However, I had to consider what the Father was calling me to do because honestly that’s what I need to be doing. Lord where are you going to take me next? Please let it be somewhere warm…
So I have spent the last few months diving into the Father, praying, reading the word, and reading books about the Lord. This is where I found James and Denise Jordan. They are a married couple who are both authors and they also run a ministry together called Fatherheart Ministries. I read all their book and the Father really used them to bring about serious revelation in my life about how much he truly loves me and how precious I am to Him. Well I decided to look into the Fatherheart Ministries and see if they had anything that would be a good fit for me. While I was looking I found that they have a 12 week school that intensively studies the Father’s love, how to grow in your relationship with the Father, and how to truly embrace your role as a child of God. It is called the Inheriting Nations School, which is based on Psalm 2: 7-8 “You are my son; today I have become your father, Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, then ends of the earth your possession.” As I did with going on the World Race and coming to Bolivia I immediately felt that this is where the Lord was leading me in the next step. However, just like the others I took time to sit with the Father and ask Him what He desires for me. I also sought counsel from others about this decision.
Finally about month ago I had my decision. I was going to apply to this school because this is where I felt the Lord was leading me. So I sent in my application, had an interview with them through Skype and this week I received an e-mail that I had been accepted into the school! I am so excited! There is only one little problem….I don’t have the money to go. Oh and as I have failed to mention earlier this is no regular school. You see this school takes place on the Great Barrier Island of the coast of New Zealand. The Fatherheart ministry is based in New Zealand. The reason that the school takes place on an island is to give students the opportunity to rest in the Father and really grow with Him without any distraction from the outside world. As I mentioned before it is an intense 12 week school. The school runs from September 12th to December 4th, 2015.
Now down to the details the tuition for school is $5,400, the plane ticket will be around $2,000 roundtrip, the ferry ride to the island will cost about $210, plus additional cost which haven’t been figured out quite yet. So I am looking to raise around $8,000 to attend this school in September. I know that this is where the Lord has called me to go and that He is asking me to step into a season of resting in Him. I just pray that you will prayerfully consider supporting me on this next step in my journey as I truly believe that it will help me to grow stronger in my faith. I also believe that this school and time with the Father will sharpen my skills and help me in my career in ministry. I am fully funded here in Bolivia so I am turning my fund raising efforts over to raising tuition money. All of the money needs to be in by mid-July to mid-August, so I am wholly trusting that the Lord will provide. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me through everything whether financially or through Prayer, I cannot express how grateful I am for each and every one of you!!
P.S. Since the school starts in September I will be coming home in June to work, speak in churches, and fundraise until I leave! Also if you want to learn more about the school check out the website www.inheritingnation.com
