My dearest family and friends,

Back in December 2011, I had, what can only be described as, a “spiritual experience.” I’m fairly certain that if you are reading this you have heard my story about my struggle with addiction and my journey into recovery. What happened in 2011 was nothing short of a miracle and I prayed that prayer of desperation one night and begged God to help me change my life. I could not stop on my own and needed a power greater than myself to do this for me. A couple days later, God answered my prayer and I found myself surrounded by the love and support of my family and friends. I have remained clean and sober since December 29, 2011 and decided from that day forward that I would go wherever God was calling me to go, and do whatever He asked me to do.

I was baptized at Mariners last year after I felt God leading me towards this and after completing the Rooted class. I then decided to get a passport because I had also made it a goal to go on a mission trip and that God was calling me to do so. Being a social worker has given me a heart to help and serve others, and I have always wanted to go to another country to carry out God’s purpose for my life. I had heard about the Haiti trip through church and prayed on it for a while, and then the pieces just fell into place a few weeks ago. I am now certain that God is calling me to go and I could not be more excited!

From May 8th-16th, a team from Mariners Church will have the privilege of serving our church partner, Church of God by Faith, in Haiti. Led by Pastor Joseph Metelus and his son Samuel, the COGBF welcomes more than 8,000 Christians to worship each week in 25 churches planted throughout Haiti’s southwest. It’s mission like Mariners is to “transform ordinary people into passionate followers of Jesus Christ”, brining hope to today’s Haitians and creating a catalyst for change that will benefit for generations to come. Aligned in our visions, it’s an honor for us to serve alongside the Metelus family and their congregations, doing whatever Kingdom-work they may ask of us.

If you would like to support me financially, you can give directly on this page. Or, if you would like to give by check, please make it out to Mariners Church and write “Haiti-Ashley Obermeyer” in the memo line. You can mail it to 5001 Newport Coast Drive /Irvine, CA. I will not be able to see the amounts given, but only the names of my supports.

With so much love, I am eternally grateful,

Ashley
