My name is Truce Stark, and I am a missionary.

To worship him. To glorify him. And to share his GOOD NEWS with others! - Truce Stark

A year ago, I could never have imagined I’d be writing what I’m about to write:

It still feels weird to say that, but at the same time, the more I lean into it, the more peace I feel. This past year has been an incredible, raw, and transformative season for which I am immensely grateful and blessed. Discipleship Training School (DTS), a ministry of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), has equipped me with valuable skills and knowledge necessary for effective mission work. The diverse curriculum and practical ministry experiences prepared me for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in the mission field. Above and beyond the significant skills, knowledge, and practicalities, I encountered God in a new way.

I found my identity in his love, which has radically transformed my current life experience and my entire future. I desire to continue down the path of serving him and his people, and for the last six months, the Lord has put worship on my heart. I feel called to live a life of worship, recognizing daily that all things are from him and for him. I want to learn how to serve others, leading them into that space and heart posture where the Lord has done immense work in me. Whether I am leading others or experiencing God’s grace through praise, worship has been central to my faith journey.

After DTS, I was physically and financially exhausted and needed a season of rest. But the Lord continued to give me a vision of participating in YWAM Maui’s School of Worship. I struggled with it because, quite honestly, I didn’t want to head back into the mission field so soon. But again and again, God spoke to me through and about worship and helped me to understand the gift that it is and the gifts that he has given me musically. I feel called and commanded to cultivate and share that area of my life with others for his glory. I want others to experience his love and mercy through worship. It’s difficult to put my thoughts into words, but he has put worship on my heart so profoundly that every time I worship, whether I’m leading it or not, I feel him so strongly and am reminded of his faithfulness and mercy. It is so humbling and empowering at the same time. It’s crazy that we offer a gift of worship to him, pouring out our praise, and at the exact moment, he pours out his love on us.I also want to invite you to join me. I believe in the power of prayer and have seen firsthand what can happen when believers fall to their knees and seek God’s will. I ask that you include me and my mission in your prayers.

I also invite you to partner with me in the vision God has given me through financial support. This part - asking for money - is the hardest for me and is a big part of the growth I need. But the realities of the situation require I humble myself and trust God to provide for this work through his followers who feel called to participate. I am working to support myself as much as possible, and I know it won’t be enough to cover the cost of tuition, travel, outreach, and basic necessities.

But I cannot deny what he has put in my heart, the gifts he has given me, and my burning desire to please him.
