Here is a copy of my support letter that I wrote.
May 24, 2012
Dear Family and Friends,
How are you doing? I hope that God is doing amazing things in your life as He has been in mine. I have just finished my freshman year at Ocean County College, and I am really looking forward to seeing what God has in store for me in this next year.
In February of this year I submitted an application to go away to study next year. I received a phone call a few weeks ago saying that I was accepted. The name of the place I am going is called Ywam (Youth with a Mission). Ywam is an organization where you study to become a missionary. There are many different Ywam’s all over the world, and the one that I picked is Lakeside, Montana. I will be part of their DTS (Discipleship Training School). At DTS I will be studing in a classroom for 12 weeks. I will be learning more about God, relationships, and things like that. Then, I will be going overseas for two months to put what I learn into action. I am not sure where I will be going yet, I find out the Friday that my team gets there. The day that I need to arrive in Lakeside, Montana is September 12, 2012; my last day of schooling is February 8, 2013.
I am writing this letter for two reasons. The first is so that you can pray for me. As I mentioned above I will be studying in a classroom and then I will be going overseas. I would really appreciate your prayers. The second is financial support. Schooling costs approximately 6500 dollars. I also need to pay for the ticket out to Montana and back, which is around 250 dollars each way. Lastly I need some spending money out there as well. Any financial support that you can help me with would be greatly appreciated. You can send it to my home at:
152 Sloop Rd
Manahawkin, NJ 08050
I need to have any support sent to me by August 15th 2012.
I am looking forward to seeing how God works in my life in the next year. A lot of people have been asking me to keep a blog about my experiences once I am there. I have already started to keep one, and the link to it is www.nathanielhegyes.wordpress.com. I hope you all enjoy following my experience.
