Bethany Weinand

Hi! My name's Bethany. I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

I am serving my second year at the University of Idaho in Moscow and lovin' it!

My Story

I am convinced the deepest desire of every human being is to be loved, for we are made in the image of God, who is LOVE. My journey with the Lord is really a journey of me s-l-o-w-l-y accepting my desire to be loved and turning to the Lord to fulfill it entirely. I met a FOCUS missionary my freshman year and ended up joining her Bible study. Throughout my four years of college I learned that the more time I spent in prayer the more I fell in love with Our Lord. Through discipleship with a missionary I learned how to share the Love of Christ that was changing me and completely satisfying me. Toward the end of my college career I realized it was not good enough anymore that I was enjoying life in Christ; I had to invite everyone to encounter the Living God. Life in love with Christ is exciting; it is the greatest adventure following Jesus and he alone has filled my life with joy and peace. St. Augustine once said: “To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.” I have to share Him! 

Your Impact

Relying on the prayers and financial support of others is entirely humbling; your generosity inspires me endlessly! Sometimes, on ordinary days when I am surrounded by the smiling faces of students, I stop and think of how amazing it is that the Lord put together an army of people to make it possible to be here. You are vital to this mission of inviting students to leave everything and follow Christ! As Romans 10:13-15 says: '''For, every one who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.' But how are men to call upon him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without a preacher? And how can men preach unless they are sent?" If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
