Some of you may know that this year I joined Westside School of Mission Theology and Worship. I started in September and it has been an amazing 4 months of learning and growth. Since I started in September, I have been taking classes taught by several amazing teachers and working in foster care weekly as part of my internship.
For those I haven’t yet told, the program ends with a two-month mission trip. I am going to Glasgow, Scotland! I will help at Re:Hope Glasgow which is a growing church in the West End of Glasgow. I will be traveling in a small team of two students, we will work together with established ministries, church plants, worship teams, outreach events, and other organizations in Glasgow, Scotland. I can't wait for this opportunity to put into practice all that I have been learning in the classroom, in a new and challenging environment. To do this successfully, I need a support team here at home in the USA.
First, you are invited to pray with me as I prepare for my trip. Apart from the power of the Holy Spirit, my team is incapable of doing the work of the Kingdom, but through prayer, we can further His work. Praying is one of the most beneficial ways in which you can support my team and me. Please pray that we would be effective in reaching the people of Glasgow and that our time abroad will be fruitful. We would be honored to have your support!
Second, you can get connected on social media. I encourage you to participate in my journey by following me on Instagram @ashleighdawnjohnson. While I am gone I will do my best to keep you updated of the trip, following this account will get you weekly updates and pictures.
Third, you can participate in the work God is undertaking in Glasgow by giving financially. The total cost for this trip $4,700. This covers all travel and on the ground expenses. God’s plan for Glasgow is already in action and I feel called to put my skills to work for the benefit of Re:Hope Glasgow.
If you feel called to support me on this trip but have further questions, I would absolutely love to talk with you! Please reach out to me on Instagram @ashleighdawnjohnson, or directly at 503-869-4702.
Thank you so much for your ongoing prayer and support!
