Here We Go Again!

10:57 PM
It was only a matter of time. And I knew that. God has been calling me this way for quite some time. To a life of wreckless abandon and selfless faith. I've tried to fight it, and I've even tried to run from it. But I knew I'd end up here. Preparing for another overseas missions experience, and laying my future out in front of God.

It's Cambodia this time. Southeast Asia is notorious for its sex trade industry. And the whole human trafficking issue has been a burden of mine for...years. And I've found an opportunity to be the practical hands, feet, voice, and heart of this cause in a dying country. Through the White Doves ministry, and YWAM base, I'm prayerfully considering accepting a full-time/long-term position as a prostitute recovery worker. White Doves offers recovery to women coming out of the prostitute lifestyle, physically, emotionally, spiritually, and vocationally. White Doves is part of a nationwide partnership, linking ministries together in the fight against sex trafficking in Cambodia called Chab Dai. Here's a video put together by some fellow AIM missionaries during their journey with White Doves:

It's a pretty amazing opportunity and I'm stoked and scared. August 15 – 29 I will be visiting Cambodia for the first time and experiencing the ministry firsthand. In this time, I'm praying God will lead me to a clear decision regarding Cambodia and a full-time position there.

I'm asking for your prayers with this upcoming trip. Financially, obviously, I need to get my plane ticket, paperwork, etc.. secure before then. And then safety. I will be making this trip solo, and I'm just praying God's hand over step of the way. And finally, clarity. That God will make it abundantly clear whether I am to pursue this as a full-time gig, or not.

Thank you. For taking this journey with me. I'm rather excited! More to come....
