KONY 2012

Several years ago, the documentary movie "Invisible Children" came out and rocked the boat of North America.  We saw the children of Africa being abducted and we heard their cries, and we responded.  Now for the plan that truly can change the lives of hundreds of thousands of children present and future; arrest Joseph Kony, the leader of the child-soldiers. Watch the video and realize that as loved children of God, we are more than conquerors (Rom. 8:37) and since God is for us, who can be against us? (Rom. 8:31).  When the Old Testament Israelites went to war with God backing them up and leading them on, they won. Every time.  God has called us to learn to do right, seek justice, encourage the oppressed, defend the cause of the fatherless, and plead the case of the widow (Isa. 1:17).

To my family and friends,

I hope that all is well with you this winter season.  I am doing very well; thoroughly enjoying all of my classes at Emmanuel Bible College.  I have been learning more and more about God’s plan for the world and my part in it.  During the school year I have felt God’s call to mission work in Europe.

Why am I going?
God has been breaking my heart for Europe, so when one of my friends mentioned the seven-week missionary internship in Europe with World Team my interest was immediately piqued.  Having already been to Europe for my high school year abroad in Germany, I have seen and experienced firsthand the deep need for the Gospel there.  

Who is World Team?
World Team is an interdenominational mission agency focused on sharing the gospel message in over 25 countries.  They are committed to enhancing the spiritual health as well as the physical health of the countries they serve in. If you have interest in learning more about World Team, you could visit their website at www.worldteam.org   

Where am I going?
The internship consists of two weeks each in Milan, Italy; Paris, France; and Madrid, Spain.  Contrary to what may be speculated, I am not going on this internship because those three countries are world-renowned for their cuisine. J

What will I be doing?
I will be spending time in each of the cities learning and working in the long-term church plants.  I will be assigned a missionary mentor who will help me to understand the realities of mission field in Europe and the deep need for the gospel message.  I will spend a great deal of time praying for the countries, cities and the people within them.  

Supporting This Ministry

Getting involved in this internship requires me to raise financial support. In considering the people I’d ask to assist me in this venture, your name came to mind. I’ve sent this letter to you, my friends and family, trusting that you’ll seriously consider participating with me through monetary support. I’m including a form to make this possible. You can also give via credit card - online at World Team Giving, or by phone at 1-800-610-9788.

Prayer
Please pray for me in the following areas...
·         That I would be able to build lasting relationships in Europe and demonstrate God’s love within them
·         That all the funds that are needed would be raised
·         That God would reveal to me His plan for me for while I am in Europe and for the future

Thanks, in advance for your support in this venture!
God Bless,

Kammy Willbond
