Hey Y'all, it's me Skyler or Sky or Sky Sky or Ky...whichever:) 
God has called me back to Africa, Zambia to be exact. I will get to be a teacher, a bible teacher to kids (roughly 233 of them as of a few days ago). So, the thing I've been doing with Life Action for the last two years, being a Childrens Minister, now I get to do that but IN AFRICA! God has blessed me immensly with this opportunity and I can't wait to start serving there! I won't be leaving until September and I'm staying for at least six months but I'm the summer youth intern at my church and I wanted to use these next few months to fundraise, partner with people and spread awareness to where I'll be going and what I'll be doing.
Hear me when I say this though, saying goodbye to my team with Life Action was one of the hardest things, they weren't\aren't just my team, they are part of my family. I love them deeply but I love Jesus and Africa more because Jesus is the best ever and Africa is where He called me and the place He put such a deep passion to serve at. I almost feel like a mom with kids, you kinda have favorites but you don't really because when you look at all of them, you wouldnt give any of them away...I love Jesus above all else but after that, Africa, my team, my new church, family...I couldn't pick a favorite, I love them all differantly yet the same. Anyway haha I thought I was going to travel with Life Action this fall but God made it so clear that Zambia is where I'm supposed to be and I couldn't be more excited! Ever since I left Ethiopia in summer of 2018 I've been praying God would send me back to Africa, I didn't care where, I just wanted to go and I did go to a country in North Africa in spring of 2019 but it wasn't African culture so for the last, truly, three years, I've been praying and wow wow wow, His timing is so perfect and wonderful, the wait wasnt\isnt easy but so so so worth what is coming, I just know it! Now my favorite part (I'm lying), to be able to go, I need to fundraise roughly $5,000 to cover airfare, supplys I'm taking to the kids (such as soccer balls and basic readers), getting my passport renewed cause its old, costs of living in Zambia and so on. I also need prayers, I live off of prayers and lemonade haha but for real, as much as I need financial help, I also need prayers so, I'm asking to any and all who read this to please consider partnering with me either through prayer or donations or both! If you have ANY questions, please text me @(432)302-1298 before saying anything to anyone else. I will be adding an update telling the story about how I went from being a Childrens Minister on Life Actions Blue Road Team to knowing God wants me in Zambia so I would encouage you to read that when it's up! Thank you so much, Skyler or Sky or Ky:)
