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 the Mathare Valley in Kenya where we will be bringing gifts of solar lights to families living in total darkness, hosting a transformational women's conference to over 1,000 Kenyan women, building a new playground for students, developing a children's Vacation Bible School to teach them about the love of Jesus, and meeting our sponsor children. I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip again because the time I spent there was completely life changing. There has not been a day since returning that I have not been affected by the experience I had last year. Seeing people receive Christ in their life for the first time, meeting victims who were impacted by the Valley Fire, connecting with the children and seeing their endless joy and smiles and overall witnessing the ways how God moved will forever be with me have made an imprint on my life. That's why I knew that an opportunity to go back was something I couldn't pass up. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by responding to the call that God has placed in my heart and step out of my comfort zone to spread the name of Jesus even further for others to experience that unconditional love and faithfulness that I have experienced on my own journey with God. I feel blessed to have this incredible opportunity to help others and serve His Kingdom 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 $2995 and it is due by May 30th. 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 extremely important to me. Thank you for considering being a part of my team and supporting God's incredible mission. If you have any questions I’d love the opportunity to tell you more.
