My name is Anne Kraus and I have exciting news to share with you! God has called me to be a full-time missionary. Over the past few years, I have had the privilege of going on many different short-term missions trips, but for the past year I have been praying about full-time service. After looking into various missions organizations and the routes to full time service, I have decided on Youth With A Mission (YWAM). To become a full-time staff member with YWAM requires two separate schools. The first, Discipleship Training School (DTS) is an extensive school that focuses on developing a personal relationship with God and how to relate this to evangelism. The second is a School of Ministry Development (SOMD) that I will complete when I return from my DTS. I have been accepted to DTS program with YWAM in Redding, California. Now, this school also happens to combine a DTS program with a school that focuses on Muslim ministry.

YWAM Redding is at the forefront of training young missionaries who feel called to impact God's people in the 10/40 window. This is the portion of North Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia that is home to 2/3 of the world's population, but also holds as much as 90% of the unreached people groups in the world. An unreached people group is one that has not had a chance to hear and respond to the gospel.

The school is 6 months in total, with 3 months of lecture and learning and 3 months of outreach in the Middle East, to both serve the people of whatever country that is, and also to apply what I have learned in the lecture phase. This is so exciting for me, as I previously did a missions trip to Palestine, where I fell in love with the beautiful people of the Middle East, and developed a heart for reaching the Muslim population with the gospel.

I am in search of two types of partners for this trip. The first is prayer partners. I have been learning over the past few years, and will continue to learn I’m certain, the importance of prayer and intercession. Before I leave for Redding, my hope is that I will have 50 people commit to pray for me at least once weekly. These partners will receive a monthly email from me with a list of specific prayer requests. The other type of partner I am looking for is that of a financial partner. With flights to and from Redding, and the cost of the DTS and outreach, I am looking to raise $9,500. I am looking for partners to prayerfully give one-time or monthly, whatever amount the Lord has put on their hearts.
