Hi Friends!

I am ecstatic to share with you about an opportunity for which I've been heavily praying! The past year I have been yearning to go on my first mission trip. I knew in my heart God was calling me on an overseas mission but I wasn't sure how to pursue this endeavor. At that time, I knew that I wanted to go on a trip for what I had equipped and prepared. When this mission trip to Poland was presented as an opportunity, I had an abundant amount of peace to leave it up to our Lord. I am blessed that it is His will for me to go on this trip! I couldn't be more excited to share my passion and love for Jesus with others.

Re:Generation is a biblically-based 12 step program that helps individuals identify and overcome specific sin patterns in their life. Re:Generation is where I truly found who Christ is in my life and has greatly transformed my walk with Him. Serving in this program as a leader, I have seen many lives drastically change because Re:Gen. This program did not "fix" individuals but gives but the "tools" to find a new life in Christ.

For the fifth year in a row, adults from Watermark Community Church, through a partnership with Cru, are traveling to Eastern Europe on a Short-Term Disciple trip to share the love of Christ and watch many lives be transformed. The unique experience of the Poland trip was brought about by an expressed desire of the Poland CRU staff to participate in Watermark's recovery program, Re:Generation. The vision for this Polish trip is for Re:Gen veterans to go and launch step groups among the Polish CRU staff. This mission has the support and blessing of both top-level Polish leadership, as well as, Watermark elders.

The Polish volunteers are being mentored remotely via Google hangouts by their American group leaders. They are scheduled to commence in July. We are currently planning our trip to Poland to celebrate their commencement and new life in Christ. AMEN!

Your support for my trip to Poland would mean the world to me! There are two ways you can support me: by Prayer and by Financial Blessing. If you would like to pray for this trip, please pray that lives would be transformed and their hope in Christ will be renewed and restored. Isaiah 40:31, "But for all those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles: they will run and now trow weary, they will walk and not grow faint."

May God be glorified through this marvelous opportunity!
