Redeemed Girl Ministries Internship: Support Raising


Dear Friends,
I would like to share with you an incredible ministry opportunity that the Lord has called me to for this summer. I applied and was chosen to intern with Redeemed Girl Ministries under the direction of author and speaker Marian Jordan.
The vision of Redeemed Girl (RGM) is to see a generation of young women redeemed by the grace of Jesus Christ, transformed by His truth, and who live for the glory of His name. RGM sponsors evangelistic events for college-aged women and provides resources that address the specific issues and struggles that they face. My own life has been greatly influenced by this ministry, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be used by God to impact others. (To learn more about the ministry visit www.redeemedgirl.org )
            My heart breaks for the young women of my generation. Did you know ….
  • Only 4% of those born after 1984 are committed followers of Jesus Christ.
  • 1 out of 4 college women has a sexually transmitted disease.
  • 40% of children growing up in America today are fatherless. As a result, this fatherless generation often struggles with promiscuity, identity issues, substance abuse and destructive eating disorders. These girls desperately need to know and experience the love of God.
  • 65% of college students agreed that “what’s right or wrong is a matter of personal opinion.”
  • 1700 college students die each year from alcohol related injuries.
I long for young women to know Jesus and to find life, love, and liberty in a relationship with Him. Since coming to college, God has set my heart on fire for Him. Being a college student and joining a sorority was so exciting, but it still felt like something was missing in my life. I’ve experienced and witnessed first-hand the heartbreak that young women face when they pursue the world instead of Jesus. After hearing Marian Jordan speak about how God is the only thing that can fulfill you, I realized that I will never find fulfillment in anything the world has to offer and that He has so much more planned for my life than I had ever planned for myself. After that realization, God completely changed my heart and gave me a new desire to seek Him. Many friends supported me last year in my trip to Greek Summit where I was equipped with ministry tools to lead my sorority, and I am now leading my sisters spiritually as Alpha Chi Omega’s Chaplain. I cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for me with such an incredible opportunity to join RGM in reaching out to this broken generation of young women and offering them the hope and life that is found in a relationship with Jesus.


I am so excited about this opportunity to intern with Redeemed Girl! First and foremost, please pray for me as I follow God’s calling for me to be equipped and led by Him in all that He puts before me this summer.  Secondly, would you consider helping to sponsor me financially?  I need to raise $1500 by May 1st to cover my travel, food, and housing while I serve with Redeemed Girl in Houston, TX. Thank you for prayerfully considering partnering with me this summer to reach my generation with the grace and love of Jesus. If you choose to financially support me you may donate by credit card, just visit www.redeemedgirl.org/donate (please put my name in the memo.) For more information check on my internship click here: RGM Blog. Your support is greatly appreciated.

For His Glory,
Kelsey
