The two most AMAZING parents raised me. I have grown up in a family that believes in Jesus and values the relationship with Jesus on a personal level. I went through a difficult time not knowing what I wanted to do throughout college and struggled with who I was in Christ. The reason I did was that I did not have a close relationship with Jesus like I needed. I still knew Jesus was Lord; I know Jesus like I should have. So, I really understood the value of having a personal relationship like I do with a friend or family after going to a Christian Conference called Onething in Kansas City. God impressed it on my heart to start reading the Bible more, which has come to be the best thing I have ever done. I choose not to focus on my mistakes because Jesus has redeemed me from them and forgiven me. I love this quote from a song that says, “Oh and I’m embraced at the foot of the cross by the love and the mercy You have lavished on us, my every stain is washed away, and I am forgiven.” I love this because God is so good, and I will always continue to love and thank Him for who I am. Life is beautiful! “For I am loved by God, this is my testimony.” I believe this with all my heart. 

I felt called to do this mission trip with the SOS team through YWAM after praying about what I should do after college. I want to be a light to these amazing people in Brazil. I am convinced that the blood of Jesus is enough to save the world. My team has been working on a drama about the difficulties of lust and how Jesus is a redeemer. We have been working on our personal testimony's as well to share. We have also been having meetings and planning for the street evangelism that we will be doing. As a team, we will be prepared and ready for what Brazil challenges us with. I want Jesus to be a representation of the actions I take and following His guidance for my life.  

What better place to share the love of God than at the Fifa World Cup of 2014? You will be sending me to be a victor because with Jesus and His blood, I will be able to touch lives. Jesus knows that without Him, I would not be able to do this. So, I am very excited to be sharing the Word of God with the help of my knowledge of soccer. I believe I will be able to relate to many people because God has blessed me with the knowledge and talent of soccer. I am blessed to have this opportunity. I am super excited that I will be going by the faith of God and the calling of others to support me. 

Thank you,

Elijah Shipman
