Hi My Friends!
I find myself drawn to the little village of Temoaya once again for the 4th year. However…..This will be an extremely difficult and emotional trip for me as my precious Deny is no longer in the village. My heart will be breaking not seeing Deny’s smiling face and her shouts of “Te Quiero Mucho, Cheryl!” Many of you have faithfully supported my mission trips over the past years.Through your help and generosity you too have had a huge hand in helping influence this now teen-age girl and her family for three years. I can’t tell you how especially grateful I am to each of you for that help.
Since the draw to go back to Temoaya is very different this year some have asked, “So why are you going?” The answer is simple—I feel God is sending me for purposes only known to Him. With that in mind I will go with great anticipation wondering “What’s next?” I am excited again be leading the Children’s Vacation Bible School program which a huge and challenging assignment as well as a great experience bringing God’s Word, compassion and amazing love to over 200 children ages 6-15.
The trip runs from August 13-20, 2018. I am always hesitant and very humbled as I send out this letter each year. As in the past, each team member is required to raise their own money to go on the mission trip. This year the goal is $1,995 to be raised by June 24, 2018. If you feel so compelled to donate in some way, it would be tremendously appreciated. Of course your donation is tax deductible. You can use the “Give Now” bottom on this page or pay by check to Eastside Christian Church Please note my name and Central Mexico 2018 on the memo line.
Three things I would ask—1). Pray for the success of our trip; 2). Pray for the safety and well- being of Deny and her family; 3). Prayerfully consider donating to my mission trip as I continue the work God has in store.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
