This is where you help Chelsea get to Rhema! God gave a WHERE, WHEN, and WHY, now be a part of the HOW.

People always ask me what my plan B is, but I believe that with God's plan, there is no plan B. God has put in my heart a huge passion for young people, more specifically, young women. Growing up I dealt with so much insecurity. I felt inadequate and doomed to fail at everything. I struggled with depression and had thoughts of suicide constantly. I began telling myself things like "You're too fat", "You're not smart enough", "You'll never be pretty enough", "You will get a divorce just like your parents", "You could never matter enough to make a difference". Then, I was introduced to the love of Christ and the rest is history. I began declaring things over my life like, "You are fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God!", "You have been called by God to do GREAT things", "You have a purpose!", "You have value", "You are God's masterpiece!" And slowly I was set free from years of self-talk that held me back.

Yes, I still struggled and am still growing to this day, but now I have the answer. I am devoted to sharing my story with young women around the world. Teaching them what God says about them and saving them from all the heartache I dealt with growing up. I believe that I have the influence to mentor and inspire young women and it all starts with Rhema Bible Training Center. It was only a year ago when I heard God's voice calling me to Rhema. Why Rhema? I don't know. All I can say is that when you have an ENCOUNTER with God where He speaks to you, you have no choice but to follow. When? I had no idea! My encounter with God happened last summer. Since then I have been asking God when He wanted me to go. I told my friends I was going to wait a whole year to save up because there was no way I could afford it. Then in April I went to visit the school and God told me to GO! I realize that it is short notice, but God's timing is not our timing! This test of faith has been an emotional, physical, and spiritual battle. People think it is easy to trust in the Lord, but it is quite the oposite. I believe God is performing miracles on my behalf, but my own thoughts haunt me. This is a very real battle I am in, but the victory is already won!

My prayer is that you will sew a seed! You are not just giving me money to go to Bible School. You are sewing a seed that will make a difference all over the world! You are not simply supporting a dream, but a calling. A destiny. Something that will change this world in Jesus' name!
