As a full-time missionary with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) San Diego/Baja I rely on the Lord to provide for all of my financial needs. The main way is through monthly support and special gifts from friends, family and sometimes complete strangers. Since 2007 when I first joined YWAM (Youth With A Mission) San Diego/Baja, the Lord has provided everything I have needed through monthly support and special gifts. But as living expenses have risen & monthly support going down and special gifts are fewer and fewer, I have been seeking the Lord for new ways to raise support.
As I continue to pray about this, I feel this is right. I sense that the Lord is opening doors for me to use this as just another avenue that He will be providing for me financially while I am on the field. This doesn't mean that I am giving up traditional missionary support raising as that is very important as well. This doesn't mean that I will stop being a missionary or that I will be using that monthly support to "build a business". I am committed to continuing this life that the Lord has called me to in Mexico and this just means that I will have more opportunities to give. I will have more options to help provide food, shelter, clothing, etc to the poor wanderer or children and widows.
Part of my desire to use this tool that the Lord has given me, I would like to share with you a few uses of some of the most popular essential oils that Young Living offers. These are oils that have helped keep me healthy over the past year and have supported my body's 12 major systems; Integumentary (skin, nails, hair, etc), Digestive, Respiratory, Endocrine, Immune, Nervous, Cardiovascular, Muscular, Skeletal, Urinary, Reproductive, and Lymphatic.
Frankincense is a great study help as it supports focus and healthy cognitive function. Use before tests or after finals to promote peaceful feelings. It can smooth the appearance of healthy skin which everybody loves during Fall, Spring, Senior and Prom picture times!
Frankincense is recommended for topical and aromatic use and is great support for the Integumentary, Nervous, Reproductive, Endocrine, Respiratory and Immune Systems.
Peppermint helps with sour and upset stomach and occasional gas, and helps alleviate nausea after the lunchroom serves up its infamous mystery meatloaf. It helps soothe muscle pain after exercise, supports proper nasal function, provides nervous system support and encourages focus and healthy cognitive function.
Peppermint is recommended as a dietary supplement and supports the Cardiovascular, Nervous, Digestive, Lymphatic, Muscular, Respiratory and Skeletal Systems. More than any other oil.
With fall comes football season. Support your player's body's natural response to injury or irritation with Copaiba. It also aids the digestive, respiratory and lymphatic systems helping our bodies detox after a night on the bleachers scarfing down nachos and hotdogs.
Copaiba is recommended for dietary use and supports the Urinary, Skeletal, Muscular and Integumentary (aka skin, hair, nails, etc) Systems.
Lemon can cleanse cells and help with normal body detoxifying. Diffuse alone or with other citrus oils first thing in the morning or during the afternoon slump to boost energy and focus. Great to help increase creativity when you’re feeling stuck on those tough projects and reports.

As awesome as our lunch ladies are, sometimes those rib-b-ques and hot pockets just don’t sit well. DiGize promotes normal detoxification of the body, supports healthy elimination, and helps alleviate occasional nausea. DiGize also supports uncomfortable times related to motion and travel.

Must have for students and staff (and anyone else who goes out in public)! Thieves supports the body’s ability to regulate its natural immune response. It supports oral health and helps in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. It also makes a great cleaner to purify and disinfect as it may greatly reduce everyday germs.
