Cecilia Bouwman - Team Supervisor

Cecelia

Hey, Friends! Thank-you for visiting my personal fundraising page!    

My name is Cecilia. I am 20 years old and serving this year as a Team Supervisor. I was born and raised in Abbotsford, B.C. I have 9 wonderful siblings, two brothers-in-law and two handsome little nephews who I absolutely love! I enjoy music, cooking, basketball and being outdoors. I came to know about NET through hosting teams when I was young. The incredible women and men who stayed with me and my family each year inspired me to apply after high school.

NET Canada is a ministry focused on evangelizing to youth in schools and parishes across the country. NET’s mission is to challenge young Catholics to love Christ and embrace the life of the church. This is accomplished by PROCLAIMING the Gospel of Christ through a personal witness of faith, INVITING young people to live for Christ, FORMING young people in Christian character through the study and practice of our faith, and EQUIPPING youth workers and young adults with the ministry skills needed for evangelization.

Over the past two years working with NET, I have grown in trust that the Lord’s plan for us is of joy and fulfilment in Him.  I am so excited to serve Team Supervisor this year! As a supervisor, I will help to co-lead a team of missionaries towards deeper relationships with Christ, with their brothers and sisters on the team, and help to oversee their ministry. This is an incredible opportunity to support the men and women on the front line of our mission so that more youth can know Christ next year! As days pass by I am more convicted of how this mission would be impossible without the prayer and support of our family and friends. Part of my role with NET next year is to find wonderful people like you to support this mission work both prayerfully and financially, to reach my partnership goal of $6,500.

By partnering in NET’s mission, you will receive updates and newsletters about my year, stories about the youth’s encounters with Christ, and testimonies of our missionaries’ life on the road. St. Therese of Lisieux once said,

” Some give by going to the missions, some by giving to the missions. Without both, there are no missions."

I ask you to consider joining me in this mission by making a one-time or committing to a monthly donation. Please continue to keep the missionaries and staff of NET Ministries in your prayers. I will keep you all in my prayers throughout the year as you will be helping me in this ministry.

Thank-you and God bless,
Cecilia Bouwman
