A STEP OF FAITH
Dear Friends and Family,
I hope this day finds you blessed! If you have not heard yet, I have been accepted to Hillsong Leadership College to study music! 🙂 I am amazed at the fact that I will be leaving for Australia this July, that’s right….Sydney, Australia! After boarding the plane I won’t see any friends or family for a full year. I have prayerfully considered attending this school for a couple years. Through the trials and the good times in my life, this was one hope I held onto. And now, not because of my own doings, but because of God using all sorts of people like you, it is becoming a reality.
At Hillsong I will be studying musicianship, songwriting, worship leadership, and theology of worship from July ‘12 – July ‘13. I am so looking forward to learning more about songwriting because I have been crafting songs together since I was younger. I am also looking forward to be in an environment of pure music. I love music. It is powerful, and my favorite language. I have developed the idea that when I am singing, I am in my element. But when I am leading worship, I am in the Lord’s element. And it is healing, and encouraging, and unlike anything I have ever done before.
So I am excited that this is becoming my reality. I know God is leading me there.
I am writing to you to see if you would pray for me and prayerfully consider sponsoring me throughout the year. I am looking for sponsors who can send $15 a month, but anything and everything helps! So I am grateful for a commitment of prayer because I know that God’s provision has no limits. This is truly the biggest step of faith I have ever taken. I will not be working over in Australia, so I will have the money I have saved beforehand, and what God provides while over there.
Hillsong recommends a budget of about $300 a week for living (includes rent/food/electric/transportation). That is about $1,200 a month. If people sponsored me $15 a month, I would be covered with 80 sponsors!
I pray that God would bless you with clarity, if this is something he wants you to be a part of. And I thank you for your support through prayer, financial means, and encouragement.
Thank you so much,
ps- Please don’t hesitate to send an email! I would love to put your address and email address in my address book! You can expect a postcard or note of some sort while I am in the Land down under! Woot!
