Im leaving on a jet plane...

I just 3 short days we leave for Mongolia. We drive to the Denver airport (about an 8 hr drive) and from there to Mongolia.
I still cant believe how fast these past 12 weeks have gone by. It is bittersweet leaving, since I have grown to love WY and the people at cowboys with a mission, but I am eager to start the second part of this journey!

One of the girls in the team had an horse injury a couple days ago, so she is now in a boot and crutches. Please be praying for quick healing and recovery since the Doc said she will have to be in crutches for about 2 weeks.

Some exciting things God has been doing on my life:

*We did a prayer walk in Cody July 3,  I had the chance to pray over 9 rodeo queens. Gods timing was amazing.

*A couple weeks ago we still needed $11,000 as a team to go to Mongolia. Now thanks to generous it is fully raised!

*We helped put on a Rodeo Bible camp here at Cowboys with a Mission. It was an amazing time and we had 17 kids become Christ followers!

For the first 2 weeks in Mongolia, we will be teaching an english class! We will have lots of opportunity to evangelize and we are even going to help build a building for other YWAM teams:)

We will not have internet while in Mongolia so I will be unable to update everyone till I return August 21st. God is so amazing, I am SO excited to pack my bags and get on that Airplane.

Blessings to all of you! Thank you so much for all your prayers, I cant wait to share of all the amazing things God is doing in mine and others lives when I get back!!

Seeking God one day at a time.

Friends and Family,

Thank you all so much for your continued support and prayers! It means so much to me.
I cant believe that it has already been over 4 weeks since I last posted. Time flies when you are busy!
I am getting SO excited to be leaving to Mongolia in 4 weeks. Please be praying for continued support for this team as not everyone is fully funded (If you would like to donate, you can do so online at Cowboyswithamission.com or send a check in the mail written out to CWAM, for outreach). Please pray for Gods continued blessing on this trip, also that we would continue to grow in Him and in that we would become more unified as a team. God has really been preparing our hearts for Mongolia, Thank you again for coming alongside us! We could not do this without you.

These past 7 weeks we have had lectures on The father heart of God, Nature and character of God, Identity and calling, Spiritual warfare, overview of the bible and Equine health. We have also been having weekly classes in Horsemanship, Public speaking and of course the daily work duties.

The weekends are filled with homework, long walks, branding's at local ranches and riding.
WY is a beautiful state. There is ALWAYS wind, it could snow at any moment and the wildlife is amazing. God is so creative! Last weekend I was able to go see the Big horn sheep. We also saw elk, deer, antelope, buffalo, rabbits, bald eagles and moose! I miss my NH home but I enjoying every minute in this wild countryside.

God has really been healing and growing each and everyone of us. It can be kind of over whelming sometimes and of course we are filled with so much information its hard to grasp it all, but I am loving the person God is changing me into. Fear is no longer an option for me, we are each one of use called to be BOLD for Jesus. I have been asking these question recently to myself, Why am I not bolder and what is holding me back? These past two months have just really challenged and pushed me out of my comfort zone to be the person God has created. It is such a long and hard process but I am ready. Here I am God. Send ME!

Psalm 8:3-9
'When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?'

Please continue to pray for me.

Love to you all,

Quick update

Friends and family,

I wanted to update you on these past 2 weeks here in Meeteetse WY.

The first week was Orientation, we spent a lot of time getting to know each other, settling in and sleeping.:)

We just finished our first week of classes, our day starts at 5am and doesn't end till 7 or 8.  Our week is filled with Lectures, horsemanship, work duties and homework.
We will have 12 weeks of lectures and classes before leaving for Mongolia.

There are some talented teachers and speakers here! I have already grown/learned so much though I have only just gotten here. Just soaking it all in.

So far  i love WY. The mountains are gorgeous and though the weather is a little crazy (like snowing randomly) It is still great to be here.

Thank you so much for all your prayers. Please be praying for open doors in Mongolia as well as here in WY.

Blessed beyond belief! 

Not only did I make my goal of $6,000. But I surpassed it!!! I am now able to put money towards my plane ticket and supplies. Also because we are going to Mongolia the trip was more expensive then at first thought and will be a total of $7,000.

 THANK YOU so very much for all your generous support, prayers and encouragement these past few weeks. What an amazing support group I have been blessed with:) 24 days till I board for WY.

Love to you all,

5 weeks.

We are almost there! Just 5 weeks left until Wyoming. 5 months until Mongolia.
Even though I have just started, this trip has already been such a faith-builder. Patiently relying on Gods perfect timing is easier said then done I have realized. But I am so encouraged by the prayers and support of my family, church and friends. 

Please continue to pray for:

    -Spiritual guidance and growth
-Continued financial support
                                         -The people we will be witnessing to in WY/Mongolia
                                       -Safety and health for me as well as the YWAM team

Walking by faith.


                                                                        Dear Friends and Family,

I was recently accepted into a Youth  With a Mission program Known as Cowboys With A Mission. YWAM is a World wide Missions Program which Trains Young people how to use their God-given Talents and interests to spread The Gospel. There is over  a thousand YWAM Ministry Centers in more then 180 countries.  
The Discipleship Training School [CWAM] That I will be attending is very unique. CWAMS Main priority and Ministry is 
To bring the gospel of Jesus to the Local Farmers and Ranchers. This is accomplished by reaching out to them through Rodeos and other western themed events. The Program is a total of 5 to 6 months Which would consist of Me spending 4 months in WY. The last 2 months of DTS, will be spent in another Country yet to be decided.

Whether I am being called to Missions long term or short term I am ready and excited to be used in any way to bring Glory and Honor to HIS name.

Proverbs 16:9 
‘The Heart of Man plans his way
But the LORD establishes his steps,’

Please prayerfully consider supporting me financially or just as importantly with your prayers.
