The Story

Hello!

My name is Brandon Bautista. I am a recent Central College graduate (Class of 2014) and am in the process of applying to medical school. It has been a life long dream of mine to become a doctor but my journey has taken an unexpected turn.

Growing up, the environment I was raised in made it difficult for me to accept the existence of God- let alone a loving God. As I developed into a young adult, I led a lifestyle that illustrated His absence in my life. It wasn’t until the last few days of December in 2012 that He made His presence known to me in a humbling car accident. I opened my heart to Him, and although the changes have been slow, they have been occurring.

Earlier this year in April, my prayers were answered when I was invited on a medical-mission trip to the Port-Aux-Prince area in Haiti by a group of Christian doctors, nurses and volunteers. There, He provided for me by showing how closely faith and medicine can be integrated. This inspired me to follow in the steps of the doctors that so generously welcomed me into their team.

It has been through His grace that this opportunity has come before me: I was recently accepted into a ministry development institution in Townsville, Australia that offers a medical outreach program.

And I need your help. This program is a Discipleship Training School offered by YWAM (Youth With A Mission) that is 22 weeks long beginning January 31st, 2016. The first 6-8 weeks there, we will be in Townsville, Australia in a lecture phase. Then we will spend the next 13 weeks onboard a medical ship, coasting along Papa New Guinea (PNG) and partnering with local health care providers to provide quality training & medical care to some of the world’s most remote areas. Finally, we will head back to Townsville for the last two weeks.

As I prepare myself these next couple of months, I ask that you pray for me and share this! Every dollar counts and even if you cannot make donations, I ask that you pray! Prayer is far more powerful than we realize at times.

The donations will cover the cost for things such as lectures, the outreach (to PNG), transportation, etc. If you would like to know more details in regards to the cost of specific things, feel free to get a hold of me any way you’d like! Even if it doesn’t have to do with the financial part of it and just want to know more about my journey to Christ, feel free to contact me!

Thank y’all for your time. Stay blessed.

P.S. If you donate, please message me your address and expect something in the mail!!! Gracias!

Hola,

Me llamo Brandon Bautista. Me gradué del colegio recientemente (en el 2014) y estoy en el proceso de aplicar a la escuela de medicina. Eh sido una meta grande para mi ser medico pero mi viaje a dado un giro inesperado.

Aunque mis padres siempre han creído en Dios, el medio-ambiente donde vivíamos lo hico mui difícil para que yo mismo crea en su existencia- menos la existencia de un dios amoroso. De joven, vivía un estilo de vida que ilustraba su ausencia, y no fue hasta que tuve un accidente de coche humillante que hico Su presencia conocida en mi vida. Desde ese día, abrí mi corazón a nuestro Jesus y aunque los cambios han cido lentos, an estado occuriendo.

A principios de este ano en abril, mis oraciones fueron contestadas cuando fui envitado a un viaje medico-mision a Haiti por un grupo de médicos cristianos. Allí, Él proveyó para mí, mostrando cómo de cerca se pueden integrar la fe y la medicina. Esto me inspiró a seguir los pasos de los médicos que tan generosamente me acogieron en su equipo.

Ha sido a través de su gracia que esta oportunidad ha llegado antes que mi: Recientemente fui aceptado en una institución de ministerio en Townsville, Australia, que ofrece un programa de divulgación médica.

Y necesito tu ayuda. Este programa es una Escuela de Discipulado y Entrenamiento ofrecido por JUCUM (Juventud con una Misión) que es de 22 semanas de duración principio 31 de enero de 2016. Las primeras 6-8 semanas allí, estaremos en Townsville, Australia en una fase teórica. A continuación vamos a pasar los próximos 13 semanas a bordo de una nave médica, costeando Papa Nueva Guinea (PNG) y la asociación con los proveedores de salud locales para ofrecer una formación de calidad y atención médica a algunas de las zonas más remotas del mundo. Por último, vamos a regresar a Townsville para las ultimas dos semanas.

Mientras me preparo estos próximos dos meses, les pido que oren por mí y comparta esto! Cada dólar cuenta, e incluso si usted no puede hacer donaciones, les pido que oren! La oración es mucho más poderoso de lo que pensamos a veces.

Las donaciones cubrirán el costo de las cosas tales como conferencias, el alcance (a PNG), transporte, etc. Si desea conocer más detalles en relación con el costo de las cosas específicas, no dude en llamarme o mandarme mensaje, si le gustaría! Incluso si no tiene que ver con la parte financiera de la misma y sólo quieren saber más acerca de mi viaje a Cristo, no dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo!

Gracias a todos por su tiempo. Mantente bendecido.

PD Si usted dona, por favor mandeme su dirección por mensaje y espere algo en el correo !!! ¡Gracias!

Hi guys!! I just want to thank you guys from the bottom of my heart for your generous donations and words. I am really excited to announce that I have booked my flight for the end of this month, January, and that I am beyond excited to see what God has in store for us these next 6 months. I will definitely keep you guys updated with pictures and posts about how this mission trip goes! One thing I do ask from you guys is that you pray for me from time to time; whenever you wonder how I am doing or how the trip is going. I know it may not seem like a big request but this is the biggest of them all. As I am simultaneously pursuing my career-goals, I find myself in a very conflicting area from sometimes. I am humbled by His work through YOU. And I thank Him for what He did in your hearts. Talk to y'all soon again. Thank y'all. (PS if you could share the post again that would be great! Gracias!)
