Hayley is a great friend of mine preparing to go to South Sudan. I thought it would be great to share with you a bit about Hayley, her journey to South Sudan and to invite you to partner with us in supporting her through this Gospel-centered journey to East Africa. As Florida gal, born and raised, Hayley first came to know the Lord as a freshman in college at Florida State. Throughout college, the Lord used her jobs and apartment situations to prepare her heart for missions. “The Lord taught me to see those I interacted with as people who need Him and to let my thoughts and actions be sanctified from that Spirit,” says Hayley. After goggling “Christian Summer Camps” for a summer job option, Hayley found Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters, filled out the extensive application and has now served on summer staff since 2010. During her first summer, she was moved again for the nations to know Jesus and was encouraged to get involved with a local body of believers when she returned home to Tallahassee. “When I returned from Snowbird, I became a member at Four Oaks Community Church in North Tallahassee. I was immediately immersed in a locally and globally missional church,” says Hayley. “Returning to the real-world culture of college life after a summer of SWO was a struggle each fall, but it was highly alleviated by the solid teaching from the leadership at Four Oaks.” This past fall Hayley signed up with Pioneers (a missions organization) and began her missions training for South Sudan. “Pioneers mobilizes teams to glorify God among unreached peoples,” says Hayley. “They do this by initiating church-planting movements in partnership with local churches.” Hayley shared with me that she is trying to be patient as the Lord leads her closer to South Sudan. She needs to raise about $18,000 of support before she can leave. Right now she is selling art prints created by the extremely talented Katie Collins as well as T shirts! She has raised about $7000 so far.
“My heart yearns for the nations,” says Hayley. “The Lord has given me specific gifts in language and communication to go. He has affirmed those in my life through His Holy Spirit and through leadership. He is using my deep emotions and love for adaptability to reach the nations.”
I am so thankful for this opportunity to help send Hayley to South Sudan! As a stay-at-home mom, this is something I can participate in for The Gospel! Helping send bright, mature, Gospel-focused young women like this to the unreached people of the world is part of my responsibility to The Gospel too! Please join me in supporting Hayley as she goes overseas!
