Stories exist everywhere. They hide behind the everyday ordinary. They peek their heads out every once in awhile, wondering if we will notice them, if we will take the time to explore them.
Our lives are not built in the big and the grand. Rather, they are formed and sculpted in the day after day after day after day. They are molded in the faithful persistence to show up time and again, to show up as we are, nothing to prove.
This is what fuels me.
I am a writer, a graphic designer. More times than not, I can be found outside and always without sunscreen. If I could, I would live on the water 24/7, 365 days a year. Although life is frantic and chaotic, it is stillness and silence that I crave, begging them to pull up a chair and stay awhile.
In August of 2018, writing will takeme halfway across the world. I am preparing to move to Mae Sot, Thailand for about a year. You can read all about this journey here. I can’t do this whole moving thousands of miles away thing without a team of people. Want to join me? Here are three ways you can come alongside me as I set out on this crazy adventure.
- I need prayer warriors. Now more than ever, I am so very aware of my desperate need for intercessors. I need you at home to pray faithfully, because I cannot do this on my own. The Lord has reminded me time and again that I am only able to live in the calling He has placed on my life when I am in complete dependence on Him. Will you be my prayer warrior, going to the Father on my behalf?
- This financial goal is no small task, but I know the Lord will be faithful. If you would like to partner with me financially, you can give a one-time or monthly gift through Nappanee Missionary Church. You can give online here (designate your gift as Kate Berkey under “Missionary Support”) or you can mail a check (made out to Nappanee Missionary Church) to PO Box 110, Nappanee IN, 46550.
- The best kind of team stays up to date on what God is doing, and I would love for you to come along with me on this journey. If you would like to receive updates on what God is doing and how you can continue to pray, sign up for my email list here.
