Stella Payton

Recently, I was selected as one of 12 Global Interns by XP Ministries with Patricia King!

God is so faithful. The internship will start at the end of January 2015.

I can sense the launching out into a new season and the beginning of the next chapter of my life. The past few years have been so challenging but finally, I am starting to see things that were prophesied over my life nearly a decade ago, coming to pass.

Please read the press release below. If you can support me and if you cannot, just pray in the spirit for me.

The total cost, tuition travel, housing and all will be around $4000.00. I will be doing fund-raisers as well releasing my next book project to help cover trip cost. (More about that in a few days when my cover design is done–thanks Jenna!)

Thank you for your support. No amount is too small. I have learned the power and value of a seed sown in the right ground at the right moment. It will reproduce exponentially!

It is times like this I thank God for having “seed in the ground.” Because what you make happen for Others, God makes happen for you.

Much Love and Appreciation, StellaHattiesburg resident

but my greatest desire is still “to be filled with a passion
to know God more and more
as he freely expresses himself through everything I touch.”
