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 Ecuador in July 2018. I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because I know by serving others God is teaching me to be more like him. I have not been great at listening to God and knowing where he wants me to go, but I am learning to just say YES. I said yes to Ecuador, because this country has a place in my heart, since I lived there for about four months. I want to go back and be God's light and healing hand any way I can. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by opening my heart to how God can use me. I want to be love and share love. What better way to do this than build a home and imagine how much love will fill those walls for many years to come. 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 $2,995.00 and it is due by July 1st. 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 "Ecuador" 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!
