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 Mathare,Kenya on 6/19/19 where we will be spreading the light of the gospel and giving back to the community through various projects including building a safe playground for the underprivileged children. I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because I want to be a "do-er" of the word of God, not just a "sayer" of the word. I am confident that through this experience my faith will be stretched through facing fear of the unknown and my confidence will grow in knowing that God will meet us whereever we are and will supply our every need. I recently started a child sponsorship and am thrilled that I will be able to meet my child, David and encourage him through the word of God and help him understand just who Jesus Christ is and what he has done for all of us who accept him into our hearts. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by showing compassion and being a good representation of Christ by showing this community that they are not forgotten and that the Freedom through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is available for EVERYONE. 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 $1995.00 and it is due by 6/16/2019. 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 "Kenya-Mathare 2019" 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!
