“Arise, for it is your task, and we are with you…” Ezra 10:4

So as you all know, in just about a month I will start full-time at ABS! So now is the time to be completely transparent with you. I’m scared out of my mind. Especially since 1) I never thought I would be doing anything like this and 2) I have to raise my own support.

Y’all I have to be honest with you, I really don’t like having to depend on other people. I have had this issue for years. When I was in College and I would need to call my parents for $20 in gas money, I would literally have an anxiety attack and start freaking out because I felt so guilty. I’ve never liked depending on other people, especially when it comes to money.

But now God is answering my prayer, one that I wasn’t even sure I prayed honestly. I asked him to break me to his will and to lead me to learn to depend on him. (Doesn’t God have the funniest sense of humor sometimes??) So now I have to do my best to obey. But to do that I need your help- I have to raise $1000 a month. Most of this I will use as an activity fund for the girls of ABS. But some of it I will be using for living expenses- insurance, gas money, etc.

On top of working full-time I’ll also be attending classes at the BMA Seminary and driving to Conway for one of my classes every Thursday. So I also desperately need your prayers. God has made it abundantly clear to me that I will have to let go of my fears and insecurities and commit whole-heartedly to serve him.

I would love to talk to you more about ABS and if you have any questions please let me know! If you would like to join my support team and get monthly updates please email me: amandabethbowman@gmail.com or call/text me: 479-220-2609.
