I had the pleasure of meeting Frank and Rebekah on the very first Dream Tour Summer 2011. And when I say, “pleasure”, I mean it. They are intelligent, grace-filled, fun, and welcoming. They are new breed of missionary (or very old breed depending on how you look at it), or volunteers as they call themselves. They donate their time to Kingdom work while supporting themselves. Wow.
They just embarked on a new season in their lives and moved from Birmingham, Alabama to Ireland to do some amazing work there. Please pray for them as they change the world through their work and mission.
We’re responsible for developing relationships between Adventures and local missions contacts, as well as helping out with logistics for trips through the Ambassador, Encounter, and World Race programs. Additionally, we’ll be helping manage and mentor a team of volunteers working in local youth centers.
We moved here about a month ago, and are just starting to learn the culture of this beautiful country.
Our dream has always been the idea of what Paul writes about in Thessalonians. To donate our time to a mission while supporting ourselves. Together, we run our creative agency, D2L Studios. Frank handles graphic design, website development and reputation management.
I am a professional blogger, which includes social media, photography, and writing. Everything we do is able to be accomplished online, which allows us to move internationally without it effecting our finances. We’ve spent about ten years developing these skills specifically for that reason.
We’re passionate about small businesses, mentoring, leadership, and non-traditional types of employment. We are also passionate about debt-free living. Paying off all of our student loans, cars, and credit cards was the very first step we took to free up our future. Our dream is to see this generation do the same. Develop skills that allow them to donate a portion of their time to bring the kingdom to earth. We are also passionate about mentoring young adults as they transition from college to career.
The area where we need prayer the most is for workers. Ireland needs young people who are energized and ready to build up the presence of the kingdom. We’re specifically recruiting for youth workers, who will establish drug and alcohol free youth centers in cities. They’ll need a passion for mentoring and youth.
