Dear Friends and Family,
I wanted to share some exciting news with you! Eastside Christian Church has planned a global compassion trip for this coming summer and I will be serving as part of the team! I will be traveling to Chile on June 19th, 2018, where we will be working with a local ministry in a church planting effort in the foothills of the Andes. We will also be providing children's programming and conducting sports clinics for youth in the large city of Santiago.I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because I believe that we, as christ followers, have the ability to impact lives and inspire others through the sharing of resources and God's love, not only locally, but throughout the world, when we make the decision to work together in order to accomplish a common goal. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by inspiring women and girls to dream big, trust God and find hope in his word throughout their life's journey. I feel blessed to have this incredible opportunity to help others and know there is a lot of work ahead as we begin to prepare. I could use your help!
First, I would be honored if you would pray for us…for preparation, for our journey, our ministry and for the spiritual battles surely ahead. Secondly, I'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 I must personally raise is $2,995 and it is due by May 5, 2018. If you wish to partner with me 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 my name and "Chile 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 me. Thank you for considering being a part of my team. If you have any questions I’d love the opportunity to tell you more so just call, text or email me!
