Aloha Friends and Ohana,
Christopher and I wanted to share some exciting news with you! Eastside Christian Church has planned a global compassion trip for this coming summer and we both will be going back to Kenya and serving as part of the team! We will be traveling to Kenya on June 19, 2019. This will be my 11th trip to Nairobi, Kenya, and Christopher’s 2nd! While there I will be leading a small group, as we conduct home visits, bringing food, solar lights and God’s word to those in the Mathare Valley.
We felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because our hearts belong to the people of Kenya, and partnering with MOHI - Missions of Hope International. Our prayer is that we can contribute to our efforts by sharing our faith, and spreading God's Love & Light!
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 our 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 personally raise is $5990. and it is due by June 16, 2019. 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 name - “COOPER FAMILY”
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 us. Mahalo 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!
