Dear Friends and Family,
I want to share some exciting news with you! I will be traveling to Kenya this summer on a global compassion mission trip with Eastside Christian Church! Our team will be leaving on June 19th and traveling to the Mathare Valley, one of the poorest areas in Kenya where our church supports a school, an orphanage and a medical clinic. We will be visiting orphaned children, families with special needs children and people who are in hospice and blessing them with love, food and supplies. We will also be putting on a parenting workshop, a conference for 8th graders with a job fair and vacation Bible school for the little ones in addition to construction projects.
I had the pleasure of spending time in Kenya with my son in the past and fell in love with the people. While they may have little by our standards, they have the biggest hearts! I am honored to be traveling with my Eastlake family and using the gifts God has given me to bless these wonderful people and support them towards in working together to create a better future!
I am so grateful for this incredible opportunity to return to Kenya and help others and am excited as we prepare and train for the trip. I could use your help!
First, we ask that all of our friends and families pray that we are used to truly make a difference, for the health of our entire team, for our ministry and for safe travel.
Second, if this mission trip touches your heart and you would like to contribute to the work we are doing by covering part of the cost of the trip, I would be grateful. Each team member is raising an equal share of the cost to send the entire team. The amount I must raise is $2995.00 and it is due by May 30, 2019.
