Specifically in Phoenix, UWM works to engage people from Myanmar, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and Somalia. Most of these people have arrived as refugees after spending years in refugee camps or being evacuated from their countries due to war. While there, part of my time will be spent in training classes learning about the missionary life, how to share Jesus stories, cross-cultural ministry, and more. The other part of my time will be visiting refugees in their homes, serving in English, sewing, and kids programs in order to make connections, shadowing the local missionary team members, and being mentored along the way.
I am excited to start on this adventure the Lord is taking me on! I cannot wait to see how the Lord grows me and uses me and my gifts in this ministry!

Prayer Requests:

  • To be open and learn all that the Lord has for me.
  • To articulate the gospel in a way that it may be received by open hearts.
  • For those I come in contact with to feel the Love of Christ through the mission.
