A Little About Me

 

My name is Amanda Bressler and I am 31 years old. It gives me great joy to share what God is doing in my life. Five years ago, while attending Baptist Bible College in Clarks Summit, PA, God gave me the amazing opportunity to go on a missions trip to South Africa for a month. With seven other team members and a leader, we spent that month learning about South Africa, aiding in Vacation Bible Schools in three different churches, ministering to children in an orphanage, and encouraging missionaries and national pastors. When I returned from that trip, I knew that Africa is where I wanted to be! I graduated from BBC in 2007 with a degree in elementary education and a new awareness of God’s intricate plan for my life. Then, God led me to teach at Calvary Road Christian School for 3 years. I taught 2nd grade, and although I had my ups and downs, I knew that God was preparing me or something incredible and bigger than I ever could imagine. In 2010, I felt God asking me to trust Him and move on to new job, but I was not sure what that job was. I told the principal that I was not coming back, and then on the radio that same day, I heard about a group of people going to Swaziland for 10 days to minister to kids and tell them about Christ. That night, I printed out the application and before I knew it, I was on a plane heading to Swaziland! I had an amazing time getting to know the kids there and sharing Christ with them. When I returned, I worked for year at CRCS and God continued to grow me for the task ahead. In August of 2011-June of 2012, God allowed me a great opportunity of teaching two children in Togo, West Africa.  While I was there, I was able to meet a family who asked me to return to Togo and teach in Mango at a school for the children of doctors’ and nurses’.  I hope to raise the support I need and head to Togo this December 2014.  If you would like to receive emails and updates, please email me at abressler07@aol.com.  If you would like to support me financially, please go to www.ABWE.com.  My account number is 0786823.  Thank you in advance for your prayers, and I am excited to see what God is going to do through me in the lives of the children that I teach and the Togolese that I meet!
