How did the doors open?

A few months ago a friend I had met in Costa Rica , Isaac, messaged me to tell me that he had moved from working with YWAM in Costa Rica, to working with YWAM in Mexico.  He had been praying, and I came to his mind so he decided to tell me about what God was doing in Mexico and invited me to be part of it.  I told him that I would keep it in mind, but that I was still in Honduras.

When I knew that the Lord was calling me to leave Honduras, I felt lost.  I know that God has called me to be a missionary, I think I will be a life-long missionary, and I know God has called me to work with kids.  What was I going to do if I wasn't serving him in Honduras?  Where would I go? I cried out to God for direction, because I don't want to waste my life, my skills and my gifts that he has given me to use for Him!

I have been in contact with many different mission organizations, and churches, all of which are very effective in advancing the Kingdom of God.  I started praying, and praying, and praying.  A few different ministries encouraged me about serving with them, but I felt something on the inside of me telling me it wasn't what God had for me.  My conversation with Isaac came to mind.  I began praying about going to Mexico, and looking at the base's website. I felt like God was giving me the green light to apply to work with them, and so I did.

I am very excited to be going to Mexico, and working with YWAM.  It is an incredible ministry that has spread the gospel all over the world.  The first 3 months I will be serving with them in Tijuana, and the last 2 months will be spent serving in Haiti.
