Hello hello HELLO!!!!! To all of you who have been involved with Invest, to those of you who are currently working with Invest, and to those of you are going to start working with Invest I want send my love and appreciation. It’s been a little over two years since I went on a journey to invest my life in people halfway around the world, having spent part of my summer in 2009 in Kenya as a Journey Intern. While that story would take all evening to share, I just wanted to let you know how God has been working in my life since that summer in 2009. It wasn’t long after we returned from Kenya, that I found myself preparing for my first year away at school. I had just spent a year a community college, due to a multitude of events that God was no doubt the orchestrator of, and I was ready to head off to Liberty University in Lynchburg Virginia. I had originally planned on majoring in music and worship, but decided instead to major in Engineering. Needless to say, that lasted all of three weeks. The last thing I wanted to do was sit in an office and go through schematics and soon found myself entering into the Department of Intercultural Studies. I loved the material and opportunities to serve. Not to mention, God had already laid a huge burden on my heart for full-time missions so I started in that direction. A year and half later, I now have my Pilot’s license with the full intention of entering the mission field as a Missionary Pilot. I am scheduled to graduate in May and I am engaged to a beautiful young woman whom I plan on marrying this coming June. Pretty awesome huh? I look back on everything that has happened in the past two years and I am blown away at what God has done with my life. I never once thought I would be where I’m at now (flying airplanes instead of playing music), but when you live for Christ He’ll take your life and make it so much more than you could ever have imagined. If I can give you any encouragement, any direction, any golden gem that you can take with you, than I advise you to truly study and dig into Philippians. And, just from my personal experience, if you tell the Lord to use you in every way He can, you better be ready for one heck of a ride, because I guarantee you won’t end up where you thought you would.
In His service, Dusty (Voombi) Foster “And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.” Philippians 1:9-11
