Ariana grew up at Bridgeway, attending Bridgekids and Student Ministries. On one of the Student Ministries trips to Mexico, Ariana felt God first nudging her toward missions.

Thanks to the influence of friends who had attended a missions training with Youth With A Missions (YWAM), Ariana began to pray and seek if God was calling her to travel overseas and be trained for missions. Sher found her fit at a YWAM Discipleship Training School (DTS) in Tokyo, Japan. While in Japan, Ariana not only trained for ministry, but she fell in love with the people of Japan. God has called Arian back to Japan on a long term basis. She is currently raising funds and preparing to return to Japan in April 2021.

Please Pray for Ariana:

  • Pray for continued peace as she pursues moving to Tokyo in April.
  • Pray for financial provision as her current support level is a little over 50%.
  • Pray for wisdom to use her time wisely and for God’s purposes between now and April.
