In my particular journey, I will get to drive into the Outback of Australia and camp out and live among the Aboriginals. I will be sharing the gospel with them, and I need your help to get there!
At the beginning of the new year, January 2020, I have been granted the amazing opportunity of being able to attend YWAM Perth Australia!
YWAM stands for “Youth With A Mission” and is a 6 month long gap year program set with the intention of training young students to be ambitious for the name of Jesus, and getting the word out. While attending YWAM, a student goes through a three month “training” program set around classroom time at the base camp, which is located in Perth. The classes taken there are all based around sharing the gospel and learning more about missions, faith, and God as a whole.
But after those three months of “training” It becomes time to apply what we have learned and actually go make a difference for Christ. In my particular journey, I will get to drive into the Outback and camp out and live among the Aboriginals for two months! The Aboriginals are much like the Native Americans here, with extremely high rates of suicide and depression. They are in severe need for the hope and joy found in Jesus Christ, and that is exactly the overall mission of YWAM, sharing the Good News of Jesus. And finally there is a mystery portion where we are taken to a different part of the world for the final 5 weeks, to be missionaries of the gospel and helping in any way we can. (The mystery location has been rumored to be either Africa or Nepal.)
But there remains one problem to all of this, I need to get there first! This is why I am reaching out to you, I need the funds to make this mission God placed on my heart a reality. I have been working full time since high school graduation and saving money for this mission trip, and this week I have gotten a second job so I can save even more. But even working two jobs I will come up short. The end goal is to make around $10,000 as this covers my room, food, and transportation. And in my particular case, because I suffer from a severe tree nut allergy, YWAM has asked me to raise a little more than usual so I can purchase my own, nut free food while I am in Australia and other countries, because you know, I want to stay alive. The extra food cost is included in the price above.
All this to say, it would mean the world to me if I you could help me out in anyway possible, just donate any amount on this page. You would be furthering God's kingdom in unbelievable ways, and people's lives will be changed. I will be keeping a blog in which you can get updates on how your money was wisely spent in reaching the lost all for the fame of Jesus. Thank you again!!
Much love, Thomas Nelson
