Missionary Against Teen Suicide

Posted By: on April 7, 2015

A message from William Looft: A current missionary raising support with Continue to Give's online, mobile, kiosk, and Facebook egiving solutions.

Greetings everyone! My name is William Looft and I am from Oneida, a small Central Upstate City in New York State, and God has given me a heart and a passion for short term mission work and the disabled. I am asking you for your prayers and support. I have explored many needs that exist across Christ's Kingdom and now I am prepared to go heartily, like Isaiah who said: "Here am I, Send me!"

My Story

I have a daughter that at the age of 15 tried committing suicide. Any parent would not understand and know how to cope with the situation so I reached out to seek a God that I knew about but never made the connection with. I started attending church one Sunday and the message was speaking directly to me. I went three more weeks and the same thing again, the messages were speaking to me! The messages were about attitude; it changed my life! I then asked God to come into my life and I accepted him as my Lord and Savior and was baptized a few months later.

Now God has put a passion inside me to go work with younger children and teens to hopefully change their lives. I want them understand things in life are not as bad as they may think and that there are other alternatives.

With all my mission work, this will be my 5th International trip and I have been spiritually moved and shown so much by our Lord and Savior. Again I know that the Holy Spirit will have me go and tell my story about how I gave my life to Christ on February 22, 2008 at the age of 54 and hopefully my story will be that mustard seed to someone else in need of a Savior.

I will be traveling to Carnlough, North Ireland with RP Missions. While there, the team will be laboring with Pastor George Johnston in Carnlough and two other communities May 21-June 28, 2015. The team will help with literature distribution, organizing soccer camps for community children, and preparing Bible lessons for those attending. The team will also provide evening Holiday Bible Clubs (VBS) for these three communities.

Why Carnlough?

Did you know that the Irish teen starts drinking by the age of 15 and some even earlier as low as the age 8? 2013 statistics state that teens will drink on the average of 10.7 liters of pure alcohol. Also 1/5 th of teens have used and abused the dangerous drug cannabis becoming addicted shortly after and Ireland also has the second highest suicide rate in Europe with the average ages between 15 to 19 years old and even a small number of 5 to 9 years of age.

How Can You Help?

As you may know, there are always travel and other expenses with these trips. If you would be interested in supporting my mission work, you can do so in two important ways.

First and most important, please PRAY for safe travels for the team and myself and God's direction in saying and doing the right things to those that I will be ministering to.

Second thing I need to raise support for expenses in a very short time. Would you please consider helping me? Please remember there is no donation that is too small as God blesses all people who give generously for God's Kingdom. You can be part of helping me reach the end goal by praying and donating!

Thank you for your prayers and support.
