A letter From The Mission Field
From Tiana Harris
I would like to share with you a ministry opportunity I’ve been challenged with. During Sept 18‐March 6,
I will be getting trained to go to a missions trip with my team.
The first 3 months (the training) we will be focusing on:
- To know God and to make Him known.
- What our gifts are and how to use them to our best ability
- We will be letting God work through us through personal development
- To equip us to serve as a missionary in various fields
Our last 2 months (the outreach) we will be focusing on:
- Most importantly God
- Putting our training into action.
- We will be building relationships with the people
- Being the hands and feet of Jesus through service projects
- Loving the heck out of them
Please support me through prayer and if felt lead financially.
My name is Tiana Harris and I approve this message.

Hello Family and Friends!
I would love to update you on what I have been doing and what I will be doing as a missionary.
After I graduated from the program Discipleship Training School (DTS) with the organization YWAM (Youth with a Mission) I decided to join staff and help young adults to know God and make Him known. I am currently disciplining 20 young adults in Madison, WI. I can’t explain the joy and love I have when God allows me to play a part in other peoples lives. It’s been amazing to see people grasp what God has for them and how His love changes their lives! On top of their personal lives changing, I have seen it even affect their families! It’s been like a ripple effect.
As a school, we are entering week 8 with many obstacles and challenges. The students are wrestling with the guest speakers because they want to know the scriptures and how the Bible backs it up. (This is awesome because that means they are really digging into God’s Word and applying it to their own personal lives).
We just had our outreach retreat which was a time of getting to know the people you will be spending 2 months with overseas and how you will together as a team function. It was a great time of sharing testimonies and a time of being honest with what we are struggling with and how we see God.
I will be co-leading an outreach team to Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. We will be leaving April 20, and will get back the 9th of June. We will be laying the foundation for an orphanage in Papua New Guinea. Along with that, we will be with the Mercy Ships in PNG as well. This will be a great opportunity for our team since most of us have a medical background of some sort. We will be with the Ships for three weeks. After we are done in PNG, we will go to Bali, Indonesia. There we will work with the YWAM base and minister to Hindus. It will be an amazing time of obeying God by spreading His love to many people.
I can’t express enough how much I need prayer. As I continue to listen to God in how to disciple others and as I prepare to go on outreach, I need to be 100% dependent on God and not my own strength.
As I go overseas, I will be in need of some finances. The cost of the plane tickets are $2,200 and its another $2,000 for the living expenses while I am there. I have been doing my best to try and raise these funds but am still considerably short. I would love to gather your monthly support as partners with me on these life changing missions. I would like to gain more monthly supporters, but would also be encouraged by and welcome any one time gifts . Every little bit goes for furthering the kingdom of God. I am asking you as friends and family, the people who I know and can pray for as well to join me in this endeavor. I invite you to also pray for me and this mission as we minister together Gods Word and Grace and Love to the many who need it.
Blessings and Love to my family and friends. Please let me know how I can pray for you as well 🙂
