Support Letter

13 February 2009 66 Comments

Shalom my Dear Friends!

I pray that this letter finds you and your family well during this wonderful season!  I hope that God is doing many wonderful things in your life, as He is in mine.  My time at Lee University is quickly drawing to a close and I am excitedly anticipating Gods next steps for me.  It is my desire to share with you what the Lord has laid on my heart for this next year.  I feel as though there is something deep within me that is longing to do missions work overseas.  I have a burden for those less fortunate than I am, and I am ready to lay what I have down to help them.  I feel as though these past 22 years have been a training process for me.  I have been taught so much spiritually from my family and my church, and have learned incredible things at school, and now I feel like the Spirit is whispering to me, “Now my child, it’s time”.  So, it’s time for me to take a step of faith, it’s time for me to sacrifice my comfortable life, and it’s time for me to make a difference.

This summer I had the wonderful opportunity to serve the Lord’s People in Israel, and for that I thank you so much for your prayers and support!  This trip helped to solidify my desire to serve the Lord in missions after school.  I began looking for a program that would train me in hands on ministry, while also teaching me missions around the world.  I was very excited when I found the World Race, a program out of the ministry Adventures in Missions.  I quickly applied and recently found out that I was accepted!  Starting August 1st 2009, a team of 4-6 other people and I will be traveling to 11 different countries in 11 months.  Our goal will be working with people in poverty, teaching the gospel to them, and forming disciples.  Our trip will range from working with Arab children in Jerusalem, to feeding the poor in Uganda, to helping the girls oppressed by the sex market in Thailand.  We are going to Ireland, Romania, Kenya, Uganda, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand.  As many of you know, Israel is so very dear to my heart, and I cannot tell you how amazed I am that the Lord has me going back there for the third time!  I am in awe of his wonderful plan!!  I am so excited to be a part of this ministry, and I have never been more sure of the Lord’s next step for my life than I am right now.

God has opened up an incredible door for me to serve Him around the world, and I know that no ministry is done without first being bathed in prayer.  It is for this purpose that I write to you.  I ask that you consider praying for my team and me as we minister this next year.  I am hoping to form a group of prayer warriors that are constantly lifting us up as we travel.  There is always a risk when traveling abroad, especially to countries that are at political unrest.  Countries such as Israel are much safer place than the media would portray, however, there is always risk.  I do believe that risk isn’t averted by one’s distance from danger, but by ones closeness to Jesus!  Please pray that Christ goes before us in every step of our ministry and that we can be acceptable vessels for Him to use to reach His people.
The World Race has provided me with a blog, which I would love for you to follow me on!  Throughout the year I will be posting pictures, journal entries and prayer requests.   I cannot wait!  As I get ready to leave in the coming months, I will also be posting our updated trip plans and be keeping a record of all of the financial support raised for our trip.  The blog will be a great resource for us to stay connected, so I hope that you will check in on me 🙂 You can visit and subscribe to the blog at http://JenniferMitchell.theworldrace.org.

As a part of this ministry, we are asked to raise $13,500 before we leave in August.  While I am in great need of your prayers, there is also a financial need as well.  Will you prayerfully consider supporting me in this area as we partner in ministry together?  Information on how to do so can be found on my blog by clicking “Support Me”.

I am cannot tell you how excited I am to go out and serve those in need around the world.  I know that I could not have gotten to this point if it were not for all of your prayers and love in the past.  You truly have touched me and I thank you for all of your encouragement to this point.  I thank the Lord for the wonderful relationships and people that he has brought into my life.  I covet your prayers as I embark on this journey.  I hope that you will prayerfully consider being a part of my future ministry.  I thank you once again for all the prayers and/or financial support that you have provided me in the past and continue to provide. May we continue to serve the Lord, looking for every opportunity to sacrifice for Him and for the sake of His wonderful message.
I love each of your dearly, thank you for the impact you have had on my life.

Shalom and God Bless!
