Help raise support and send Jacob to Amsterdam this Summer!

This summer I am planning on heading off to Amsterdam to work at The Shelter Youth Hostel Ministry (The Shelter Jordan). The main goal of the Shelter is to spread the love of Jesus to all who come through. I will be leading Bible studies, worship, programs (outreach events intended to communicate the gospel in a clear way), and evangelizing. You can probably guess why visitors would come through Amsterdam; it is know as the gay capital of the world, it has legalized prostitution and weed and pretty much anything goes. Only 1-3% of the population are Christians, and the Christian community is diminishing. It is renowned for its Red Light District, where prostitutes line the store windows and sex shops gather visitors. The visitors who come through will likely be visiting the District, and almost all have probably never heard the gospel of Christ. In their midst of their adventures we will be witnessing to them; many are open to talk about their views and express interest in faith. Amsterdam is a city with little hope; and we seek to give it hope. I will be working at the shelter earning my stay, so much of the funds I need is a plane ticket there and back, transportation costs, and living expenses. Basically, I need around 3,000 dollars to fund my entire summer trip (May 25th to August 15th). Any help is greatly appreciated, if you cannot spare any funds please pray for my trip that God will provide and I will be a tool to further His Kingdom. John 15:16-17 says, "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit - fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. This is my command: Love each other." God has led me to work at the Hostel , I have full faith that where He leads He provides. Thank you for taking the time to read my page, and God Bless.
