Juli Smith "Young Adult Volunteer"

Dear friends,

As a long-time member of OPMH, I wanted to let my home-church family know of some exciting news in my life. I'll be graduating from Miami University in May with a BA in Latin American Studies and Comparative Religion and a minor in Spanish. After graduation, I'll be moving to Guatemala in August for at least one year to be one of about 30 international Young Adult Volunteers through the PCUSA.

As a YAV, I'll be living with a host family, working with a local organization to serve impoverished people in the area, and becoming active in a church in my community. I'm incredibly excited about this opportunity, and feel that through my Spanish studies and my previous experiences in Latin America (including 3 trips and a month-long stay in Reynosa, Mexico with OPMH-supported organization, Faith Ministry) the Lord has been preparing me for this for years, and I can hardly wait to start this new adventure!

Since YAV is a non-profit, each volunteer needs to raise half of the $18,000 cost of simple living for the year and the PCUSA contributes the other half. Though support-raising seems daunting, I know that God will provide for me to live the life I have been called to. I also know that there are people who want to see Jesus' commission lived out, but who just don't have the ability to go. That's why God made us all differently – some are equipped to go, and some are equipped to stay – all different, but all crucial parts of the body of Christ. (1 Cor 12:12-19) Would you consider partnering with me through prayer or a financial contribution (to my online YAV account) towards my time in Guatemala?

Thanks so much for your prayers and support, and if you'd like more information about how to support me in my service, please feel free to contact me.

Bendiciones, Juli Smith
