PIU Summer Ministry: Addie Namelo

12705329_1710371865866648_246462885490117005_nI want to introduce Addie Namelo to you. Addie is a 3rd year student who grew up on Guam, but is from Fefen island in Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia. She is in the Liberal Studies program at PIU and would like a career in missions, possibly in camp or youth ministry. Addie will work in a VBS at Grace Evangelical Free Church in La Mirada, CA and then head to her summer internship (July 2-August 2) at Liebenzell Mission USA headquarters in Schooley’s Mountain, New Jersey, working in children’s ministry at the camp and retreat center.

I asked Addie why she was interested in this type of internship ministry: “I just like helping people in general.”

Are you nervous?: “I knew this was going to be hard but as I told myself, ‘Don’t think things are far-fetched or out of reach, have faith, pray and go for it!’”

This is Addie’s support raising brochure below. She has already raised the necessary airfare and just needs to raise her additional miscellaneous expenses (about $500) to have enough for the summer. Support info is in the brochure below.

Dear Family & Friends,

As you all know, my name is Addie Mary Namelo. I am 21 years old and currently attending school at Pacific Islands University in Mangilao, Guam as a 3rd year college student.

I am writing to inform you of an awesome opportunity I have this summer through my school. I will be going on a mission trip at the end of June to New Jersey and New York City. I will be interning at Liebenzell Mission, USA headquarters in Schooley’s Mountain, New Jersey. I will serve at different churches and have the opportunity to go into New York City to help the homeless ministries by giving out food, clothing, most importantly sharing the gospel. I will be working with a partner and friend Scott Refilong who is also a student at Pacific Islands University. We plan to use our talent in music to share about Micronesia, our culture, and our school.

I am so excited to see how God will use me this summer. There will be a German impact team going to New Jersey as well and we have been informed that we will also be working alongside their team.

We are praying for a strong support team. First, through prayers, please pray for the ministry through the summer. Pray that we may be lead by the spirit and to do everything for his glory and not ours.

Secondly, for the cost of the plane ticket and traveling expenses. We will need to raise $2500.00 in just a few short weeks. Thankfully, we will be housed and fed when we get there. The hostess will also be renting a car for me to use while I am there. My prayer is that this summer will help me overcome the fear of reaching out to the unknown. I pray that we will not be afraid of rejection, but have the sense of urgency to do God’s work in whatever way that may be. Thank you for your time, support, and prayers.clip_image006

In Christ’s Love,

Addie Mary Namelo
