zCENTRAL MEXICO 2018 EASTSIDE BEYOND BORDERS|Bill & Terri Thompson

We're serving others in Central Mexico! Learn More

Dear Friends and Family,

We wanted to share some exciting news with you! Eastside Christian Church has planned a global compassion trip for this coming summer and we will be serving as part of the team! We will be traveling to central Mexico on August 13th where we will be visiting with the little girl we have been sponsoring along with her family. We will also be working with a team to distribute needed clothing and improve homes in the area with projects like electrical work, installing exhaust systems and sustainable solar lighting. We felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because of our connection with our sponsored child and the work we did last year in northern Mexico. Our prayer is that we can contribute to Eastside's efforts by bringing the love of Jesus through helping the people we will meet and serve. We feel blessed to have this incredible opportunity to help others and know there is a lot of work ahead as we begin to prepare. We could use your help!

First, we would be honored if you would pray for us…for preparation, for our journey, our ministry and for the spiritual battles surely ahead. Secondly, we'd like to know if you would contribute to the work we are doing by covering part of the cost of the trip.

Each team member has been entrusted with raising an equal share of the total cost to send us. The amount we must raise together is $2,992 and it is due by July 22nd. If you wish to partner with us in this ministry please click on the “GIVE NOW” button to donate. (There is an option to cover the cost of the credit card fee that you can opt out of if you prefer.) Or if you prefer to give a check or cash donation you can make your check payable to “Eastside Christian Church” and note our names and "Central Mexico 2018" in the memo line and mail/bring it to the address below. Contributions to our project are tax-deductible. You're very important to us. Thank you for considering being a part of our team. If you have any questions we’d love the opportunity to tell you more so just call, text or email us!

Last Saturday, March 17th, we had an all day training with all of the teams going out this summer. It was great to feel the energy in the room and hear the excitement for what God is about to do through a few hundred people open to letting Him use them to bring love and hope to those in need around the world. We learned a lot about cross-cultural contacts and about how we might think differently than those we will meet and minister to. There were team events that helped us get to know each other better and figure out how we can show grace to others on the team that may be different than we are or see things differently.

Please pray that God will bond us together in love and unity and that He will prepare us to be the people we need to be so we can do the things He will ask us to do.

We are moving forward with our plans for our trip to central Mexico.  We had a second training time on Sunday and got to better know the other members of our team by discussing our various personalities and what we will bring to the table.  Many of you have probably done this before, but we broke ourselves down into personalities typified by a lion, an otter, a golden retriever, and a beaver.  We are already seeing how we will fit together to accomplish the ministry we will be a part of.

We are also excited about friends who have already donated to the cost of our trip and committed to pray for us. Some of the friendships go back to the early '80s.  God has blessed us so much and we look forward to being a blessing to others.

Well, we had our first training on Sunday, January 28th. We learned about the projects planned for our time in Temaoya, Mexico and saw a video about the work that has been done there by Eastsiders in the last few years. The church building there has grown from being a tin lean-to type structure to a beautiful 3 story building. We also got to meet the other members of the team we will be traveling with. Some we have known for a while and some are new to us, but we look forward with excitement to working with them all to minister to the local people through the church in Temaoya.
