For the past few months I have been undergoing the onboarding process to become an official missionary with Youth for Christ Australia. They are a partner of Harvest Australia and have agreed to be yet another partner of mine and help me raise missionary support as I pursue our unified mission to see young people in Australia active in the gospel.

Youth for Christ has a long history going all the way back to the early 1940s with their first, full-time worker, Billy Graham.
Since then, Youth for Christ has expanded to numerous countries through their international body, YFC International, and YFC Australia officially registered with them in 1949.
Today, Youth for Christ Australia has a burden similar to that which I have been sharing about: A burden to see young people active in the Gospel.
With this alignment between Harvest Australia, YFC Australia, and myself, we all agreed that becoming an official missionary with YFC Australia would be a wise decision.
This not only provides a level of formality to my work as a missionary, but also surrounds me with a team of like minded people who are fulfilling the same mission in their own, Spirit-led ways.
At the same time, I get to increase the reach of Youth for Christ Australia and see other young people lay hold of our shared mission.
God has brought about a lot of changes recently.
First Harvest Australia, now Youth for Christ Australia, all as I’ve just landed in the United States!
I don’t know exactly how God is going to use all this but I’m excited for great fruitfulness to come in the weeks and months ahead.
Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me. Colossians 1:28-29, ESV.
