Dear Friends and Family,
If you haven’t heard I was accepted to be part of INCM, International Network of Children’s Ministry’s GO Program. We will be traveling to Australia and working alongside KidShaper. The mission of INCM is to train, motivate, encourage, network and resource Christian leaders who minister to children. I will be serving the local children’s ministry leaders in Australia. We will be traveling August 19-26 2013. The total expense for my trip is $3500 and that includes, travel, food and lodging.
I have been part of children’s ministry for the last 4 years, and it have been the most wonderful experience. My job is to spend time with some of the great kids I have ever had the privilege to meet. I get the special job of talking to them about Jesus Christ. I have been blessed with a strong group of ladies that have helped and encouraged me during this journey in children’s ministry, but there are others that are not so lucky.
There are kids that don’t know Jesus Christ, and there are leaders out there that don’t know how to tell the kids about Jesus. INCM has developed the 5 initiatives:
1. Impart God’s truth to this generation
2. Provide a safe and relevant environment
3. Communicate with families
4. Network with a community of leaders
5. Pray for the international children’s ministry community.
I have taken an oath to impart these 5 initiatives. Together with INCM I will help to set up and run trainings with local churches. I am super excited to have this opportunity to go and encourage others in their journey of children’s ministry.
My needs for this trip is prayer. This program is a brand new program and we will need lots of prayer to accomplish what the Lord wants us to do. My other need is financial, I have raised about half of the money needed for my trip.

It has been extremely difficult for me to step out of my comfort zone and ask others for help. So my 1st lesson has been:
“It takes humility;
to realize that God cares,
to admit my need,
and to let others in His family help!!”
Thank you for your help and support in this new and exciting venture that that Lord had placed before me!!
Wishing you many Blessings
