I want to send a huge thank you to Lynna Lee Donnor and her husband David for their gracious donation!
So far I have been blessed with 180 dollars toward my mission!! That's 9% of my goal! Thank you all so much for your continuous support.

UPDATE:
This past week I was blessed with an opportunity to visit the city. My intended purpose was to find an apartment, find a job, and find missions to team with. I was incredibly blessed to accomplish 2 of 3 tasks!

In the midst of my searching for missions to serve with I stumbled upon 'New York City Relief.' I got an opportunity to serve with a group in a center that gives services to the homeless. I was able to talk to individuals and get them set up with other services; ie. emergency/long-term housing, food pantry's, cash/ebt assistance, showers, etc. While we were doing this people were able to mingle with some refreshments as well as find clothing to spice up their wardrobe. I had an absolute blast and can't wait to start doing this full-time! When I go to the city I will also be doing the relief bus, which is a bus we travel in and bring soup and refreshments to people in cities like the Bronx, Harlem, and Brooklyn; as well as get people set up with services.

I also found not one but two jobs in the city! I will be working with 'Working Families' canvasing for political campaigns of people that fight for the rights of everyday people. I will also be working part-time with 'Post-mates' which is a food delivery service similar to 'Uber Eats' and 'Grubhub.' I will be riding my bicycle and delivering food whenever I need extra money.

The one month countdown starts today! I am so incredibly excited! Thank you all for donating and sharing, as well as just encouraging me. I couldn't be doing this without you. Stay blessed.

Hi! My name is Elizabeth. 

God put it on my heart to go on a mission to NYC. I want to help with the illness that is addiction that has plagued the streets of NYC, as well as many other cities. I feel as though i am being pulled here to reach these people. I plan to finish school and get a job as an alcohol and substance abuse counselor. While doing so i plan to be a part of the city and attempt to reach as many people as possible. I intend on serving in local shelters and organizations focused on alcohol and substance abuse throughout the city; as well as serving in my new home church called 'Hillsong.' I want to do whatever I can to help the people of NYC that are struggling with addiction; as well as the homeless epidemic. I hope to help them fight their battles side by side with the help of the Lord. I pray to lead as many people as i can to follow Jesus and help them find hope and peace through him.

I am intending on leaving after this summer semester of college. This would be the weekend of 8/10. 

I am asking for this money to assist me with the move to NYC; as well as to get on my feet. I am willing to risk everything for this mission and put all of my faith into the Lord but any bit of help would be appreciated. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Also a huge thank you to anyone who donated or shared! I appreciate you all so much and I thank you for helping to make this mission possible. I pray that the Lord continues to work in my life to help facilitate his work in others. Thank you for being a part of that! God bless you.
