  It all started with a desire to go, I have wanted to go on a missions trip for years but was never able to. Then one day I was at a youth rally and I heard about this life changing ministry called Sheaves for Christ. They talked about how SFC supported missionaries, provided them with vehicles, and helped them to spread the gospel to the furthest regions of the earth. I thought to myself “I can still make an impact in the missions field without being there”! SFC has impacted my life just as much as it has impacted those missionaries over seas. Through SFC the desire I had for missions turned into a burden. And then years later I had the opportunity to go! June 29, 2018 I took the biggest leap of faith I have ever taken. I traveled over 5,000 miles to the country of Ghana. I had never been out of the country, I had never been on a plane. I had no idea what to expect or what I was stepping into. But what I knew was, whenever I heared the testimony of a missionary that burden fired up inside. What I knew was God was going to transform me and use me like never before. And thats exactly what happened! I dont know where im going next, but that burden that i feel has multiplied. And I will be ready when the Lord says GO!
