Please email me or Victoria Cox via facebook for the address. OR simply make a donation here with your credit/debit card. In case you do not know Victoria is my daughter. Victoria has been attending the School of Ministry for a year and she has grown tremendously through Christ. It is Victoria's desire and passion to be in the Mission Field for Jesus Christ. I pray this will be one of many Mission trips for her to spread the Gospel throughout the World.

 

Ever since I was a little girl I have always dreamed of one day going on a missions trip. I have an amazing grandmother who is an evangelist that has traveled the world and  I have an aunt and uncle who showed me the love of christ and drenched me in it at a young age. I would always stand in awe as I would get to watch them leave every year for mission trips and come back with beautiful testimonies about how they effected the lives of many through just a kindly gesture. They would also share with them the gospel and give them hope in a savior that allows life to be worth living no matter the situation. The seed of a desire for missions was planted. 

Last year was a crazy year for me. I was 19 and knew that God has a plan for my life but was running. I was into everything most people that age are into. Drugs, parties, alcohol, you name it, I was in it. I also had an eating disorder ontop of it all. Last March a good friend of mine from high school had passed and all I could remember was how much he loved God. People were saved at his funeral! I knew that if I were to die that day my death would not lead people to a source of hope. I knew that I would not make it into heaven if I were to keep doing the things I was. By July I had had enough and God called me back to church and led me to a place of brokenness and repentance. 

It has been over a year now and I have been pure, drug free, alcohol free and free from my eating disorder.  I am now 20 years old and in my second year at Oasis School of Ministry. I intern for my youth pastors Lindsey and Jodi Huie where I get the priviledge of mentoring and counseling young girls who struggled with some of the things I did. I also am serving as a Childrens pastor twice a month. God is so good!

 Earlier in the year my Pastor told us that we were invited to join him on a missions trip to South Africa. I was so excited I didnt know what to do! I prayed about it and God told me this was my time. The only thing that kept me from going fourth was the finances. Its a scary price! But, God said, this is my will so this is my bill. Its a stretch of faith but I am leaning on him to provide. Since then people have anonymously donated and I have found much favor! I am still short $1,000 but I know I can get there. I wouldnt get this far if he wasnt going to take me all the way. Thank you so much for your generousity! This trip would not be made possible with out you. I will be sending out a personal letter with pictures from the trip to everyone who wishes to donate. God bless!!!--- Victoria
