A New Adventure

If you know me at all you would know that I am a little high maintenance (ok, very high maintenance). I like my hair products and tools, make up and my Tempurpedic mattress. So when I was asked by my best friend, Jamie if I wanted to go on a missions trip to Kenya to do women’s ministry I initially laughed it off and went on my way. Then something got a hold of me.

The night before Jamie asked me to go, I was laying in bed thinking about how fed up I was with Christians who were quick to judge and tell people what they were doing wrong, but wouldn’t back it up with their actions. I was begging God to change me and to open new doors for me to act on my faith and really do something worth while. I was thinking he would open a window or something, NOT A GARAGE DOOR! A couple of minutes after Jamie asked me to go I felt God remind me of my prayer, and then this unbelievable desire to go to Africa washed over me. I am so excited to have the opportunity to do something few people get to do and bless others in the process.

I will be going with Firewind ministries to Kenya in January to minister to the women in the Maasai tribe. We will be showing them how to deepen their relationship with God and teaching them the Word. Also, we will be giving them some tips and tools on how to keep a clean and healthy home and village.

Here’s where I’ll need help. First, I need your prayers. Like I said this is something new to me, and I already have some doubts and fears that I know are not of God. Please pray for my peace of mind. Also, I need help financially. I know that this is in God’s will so I’m trusting that the money will come from somewhere. I will be doing quite a few fund raisers to get the money, also a big part will come from donations from wonderful people like you. Not only would you be contributing to my trip but you are also be pouring into these women that I will be ministering to. My prayer is that God will lay it on people’s hearts to help me raise the funds to go on this adventure. If you would like to help I would greatly appreciate it. If you need any more information I will be glad to let you know all that I know; also, if you need my contact information I can get that to you through email. You can email me at mandy (at) mandyandjace.com. Thank you all in advance and I will keep everyone updated on my entire adventure here on the blog!

    Mandy, how exciting! I haven’t been on a mission trip either, but you are so perfect to go on this one. You are such an amazing young woman and the Lord will use you tremendously to speak to these women and show them how to live in the Lord and take care of their families. You have my love and support.

    Oh my goodness, I was typing doing some research and reading more about the Massai people since I am too going with Firewind Ministries January 27th of 2011! How exciting to see your blog post. I couldn’t have written it better myself! 🙂 I know my thoughts and His desires can be on two different pages sometimes…but God is so faithful. I understand that it is the second Annual Women’s gathering. Facebook me if you like 🙂
    And if you find a way to get a Tempurpedic mattress in a duffle bag….DO SHARE! 🙂
