I’ve changed gears slightly (actually majorly) and am now volunteering full-time for Youth With A Mission (YWAM) at the Vancouver, Canada base.
As a staff member of YWAM Vancouver I support raise my entire salary – a bit of a kick to the pride, but also totally humbling and such a blessing.
All living expenses (including rent, bills, groceries, travel, healthcare, a casual coffee or two on the weekend etc.) are reliant on support.
This breakdown below gives you an idea of what I need per year to live in Vancouver:
10 x people giving $10 a month
10 x people giving $20 a month
5 x people giving $50 a month
5 x people giving $75 a month
5 x people giving $100 a month
5 x people giving $200 a month
Essentially $2,000-$2,500* Australian dollars per month.
(*I loose a bit with the exchange rate and processing fees)
This is the part of the whole YWAM thing which has been a bit tricky for me. The thought of trusting God with absolutely everything has been a bit of a battle. It honestly was my greatest barrier in deciding to do this and say “YES” in the first place.
But after a lot of prayer, testimonies and good counsel, I’m hanging on to God’s promise – that HE is faithful, doesn’t go against His word, and He will provide where He has called me.
“How many loaves do you have?” he [Jesus] asked, “Go and see”.
The story of Abraham, Hebrews (6:13-20) and in Mark (6:30-44) where Jesus feeds the five thousand has spoken to me LOADS!
I’m trusting God the whole way and know that he will multiple what little I offer Him.
With that said, want to partner with me?
If you’d like to become a monthly supporter, or make a one-off donation, here are the different ways you can:
Direct Transfer to my Aussie bank account.
Support from Australian donors will go direct to me, which means you don’t have to deal with any admin fees, currency exchange rates and you have the comfort of knowing I will receive it all – I think that’s a good thing.
I will be transferring everything from this Aussie account to my Canadian bank account each month using TransferWise.
