Kaiya's Moving to Ohio!
Like many of you have experienced at one time or another in your lives, I am experiencing the faithfulness of God like never before!I am writing to you today to both share an amazing testimony and to enlist your support!Many of you know and have heard me profess that I believe that God has called me to the realm of government, politics, and public policy; to be a righteous and godly voice that informs and influences how the policies that affect all of our daily lives are written. As an Urban Educator for the past 10 years, I've come to know that a child's success in the classroom is overwhelmingly influenced by factors outside the classroom - socioeconomic status, access to quality healthcare, parents' job security, and housing stability, among other factors. As I've responded to the burden God has placed on my heart, I've made some decisions that are in line with my commitment to working for the success of children and families, from outside the classroom.As many of you may also know, I recently applied to graduate school and was accepted into Palmer Theological Seminary. At Palmer, I'll be studying Christian Faith and Public Policy, where I expect to be equipped to seek out and advocate for godly solutions to many social problems.In July, I took yet another HUGE leap of faith! Feeling led by the Lord, I "retired" from my career in education. I walked away from a stable salary, tenure, and health benefits to pursue God's purpose for my life! I had little idea as to what exactly would be my "next", but I knew with certainty that the God who called me, would also provide for me. And not only would He provide for me, but He would direct my every step! So, by faith, believing that "[He] knows the plans [He] has for me" (Jer 29:11), I began working part time for my church, began preparing for graduate school, and kicked my prayer life up a few notches lol! And then I received a phone call.Last week, I received a follow-up phone call regarding a position I applied for back in March, but had written off. That phone call led to a series of telephone interviews. And on Saturday, I was offered a paid position within President Obama's re-election campaign! Can you say "How GREAT is our God?!? Can you say "His thoughts are HIGHER than our thoughts"?!? While I was stepping out on faith, not knowing what was going to happen, He had ALREADY been orchestrating things for me behind the scenes, just waiting for me to take that step! I praise the Lord for confirmation, for provision, for His unwavering concern for me, and for DESTINY!I've accepted the position, but I do need your help! As you probably know, during this election, there are key "battleground" states. One such state is Ohio. Political pundits believe that if the President wins Ohio, he will win the election. Moreover, Ohio's citizens are up against several newly implemented guidelines meant to suppress voter turnout. The campaign has asked me to go to Ohio...by THIS Friday!!! Talk about your life changing overnight!!And so, I am reaching out to all of you to ask that you sow a seed into my pursuit of God's plan for my life! Would you prayerfully consider making a donation to help me cover travel and transportation costs to Ohio? Although my position is salaried, it unfortunately, does not cover the costs of relocation. Whether it is $5, $20, $100, or $1000, whatever you are able to contribute would be most appreciated, and it would be a seed sown into good ground!If you already have a Paypal account, you can send your donation directly from your own account to [email protected] course, if you have any questions feel free to give me a call.I thank you for considering making a contribution and I know that you are rejoicing with me over all that God is doing in my life. And know this, the same God that has moved on my behalf in this endeavor WILL DO THE SAME FOR YOU! Exercise YOUR faith, and He WILL respond...I am a witness!Love,Kaiya
