To The World With Love
Mission partnership development for Dylan Raines
I believe God has called me to go to places and nations in greatest need of freedom and hope. My soon-to-be-wife Julia (we are getting married July 6) and I are currently in process to move overseas to Central Asia, serving with an organization called One Collective (www.onecollective.org). The country we are moving to is 98.6% Muslim, and one of the poorest countries on earth.
My job will be what is called a Catalyst, and will involve leading teams to villages in order to develop relationships, discover what the needs of an area are, and create community development projects to meet those needs. Julia and I will also be serving to establish a house of prayer and ministry school.
Our commitment is to live and work in this region of Central Asia for a minimum of five years, and we need your help and partnership in order to fulfill what God has called us to do.
I am going to One Collective headquarters in Chicago from June 9 - 15 for a week of missions training and orientation. I currently need to raise $1,000 for costs of registration ($500) and travel expenses. If you would be willing to help me reach this goal it would be immensely valued and appreciated. Once this week of orientation has been completed, I will be completely approved to begin working on our move. Thank you for your support!
Why are we going?
I believe one of the greatest injustices in our world is that people lack life's most essential resources like clean water and food. I believe the true solution starts by building relationships, going to where people who are in need live and and discovering both the spiritual and physical needs in order to implement a solution together. I believe that Jesus provides hope and restoration and seek to live out who He is to impact hearts, minds and bodies for His Kingdom.
Where are we going?
We are going to a country (unnamed publicly for security reasons) in Central Asia that is one of the poorest in the world. For more details about where we are going, please message me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What will we be doing there?
My role with the organization that is sending us will be what is called a "Catalyst." I will be focused on going to villages in the region to build relationships in order to discover spiritual and physical needs and where resources should be raised or implemented at a local level to provide solutions.
