From the desk of Justin "Viking" Wren
I had my world ROCKED and my life TRANSFORMED on my 55day mission trip & discipleship program called “The Experience!” I absolutely could never describe in words how great and life changing it was. I did hear a quote that said, “No amount of money could EVER replace the feeling of seeing God’s smile.” Well I now know what that feels like! One glimpse of that is pictured below. I thought I’d immediately go back to fighting after Haiti, The DR and “The Experience” but I heard the calling to Africa for The Ultimate Fight 4 Christ!
During one of the sessions a KBM speaker, Caleb Bislow, shared about a people group in Africa that made my heart spin wildly inside my chest like a tornado! The Pygmies in the Congo are a very despised people group in Africa. In RECENT years rebel groups have even sought to annihilate and cannibalize them. It is hard for me to believe that there is such pain in our world and that few have heard about this tragedy. They are a neglected people group because of their remote location and the risks involved in reaching out to them. After sharing about the Pygmies Caleb invited myself and two others to join him this August on his first mission trip to Africa. I realized that God has wired me to take risks in life and there is nothing that I would rather risk for than his Kingdom! We have the cure for Hell, and the pygmies have never heard of Jesus!
This trip will also allow me to minister to suffering rape victims in the Congo, a village in Rwanda, and numerous unreached Maasai villages in Kenya and Tanzania. I recognize that this is an expensive trip due to all of the elements, the corruption in the Congo, and the extremely high gas prices in East Africa, but I believe that if God is in it then He will provide. These Pygmies are a HUGE cause worth Fighting for!
This opportunity came at me fast, because the trip will take place from August 2 to August 22 . God has already miraculously blessed as me with some financial support, but I am still trying to raise the remaining $3,000 by Friday July 29th, 2011. If you would like to partner with me through prayer or finances please fill out the information below, check the boxes accordingly, and send it in to KBM. I plan to give my partners a full report upon my return. Thank you for prayerfully considering this investment in my life and in the lives of those that are forgotten in Africa.
