God Provides for Fresno Summer Staff
"Be a disciple to help make disciples" is a motto that Precious and Marisol are living by this summer. For the past few years, these young women have been involved with World Impact's Teen Club, discipleship groups, church plants, and camp ministries. They made a leap of faith this year by committing six weeks to serve as summer staff. As summer staff, Marisol and Precious were asked to fundraise and make connections with ministry partners. At the start of the summer, Marisol and Precious were struggling with funding and sought God's provision. God gave them a creative idea--use Facebook. They created an event on Facebook to ask people to support them! In less than a day, they were both fully funded, and then some. They were amazed by how quickly God provided through His people. Their faith in God as The Provider was stretched. The World Impact Fresno summer staff position has allowed Precious and Marisol to have deep quiet times in the Word and time talking with Jesus. They have been able to interact with new families during outreaches, learn about urban ministry, plan lessons for Bible club, share their testimonies and lead worship for teen activities. Marisol says, "This summer is preparing me so that when I go back home I can start a youth group at my church…now I know I can do this." The summer staff program is helping to empower and equip Marisol and Precious to be indigenous leaders who are beacons of God's hope in their neighborhoods and city. Please pray for these young women as they wrap up this amazing summer.
