I am about to embark on a new journey in my life. I just graduated from the University of the Incarnate Word and have been called to a year of volunteer work with the Episcopal Young Adult Service Corp. I will be working with an Anglican Youth Center in Nagoya, Japan. While there I will be teaching English to Filipino children of migrant workers, helping out with programs in the Youth Center, and getting involved with the community any way I am able. I do not know all of what this coming year will bring but I am hopeful in the unknown.
Not everyone is called to a year of mission work. As God has given us different gifts I am asking for your support though prayer and donations. Please put my mission in your prayers. It will bring me great comfort and assurance that God is present in all that I do. If you would like to donate please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Through your generous gifts and support I will be able to continue God's work in the world.
I want to leave you with a prayer from St. Benedict.
Almighty god, give us wisdom to perceive you,
intellect to understand you,
diligence to seek you,
patience to wait for you,
vision to uphold you,
a heart to meditate you,
and a life time to proclaim you.
Thank you and God Bless,
