Dear Friends and Family,
We wanted to share some exciting news with you! Eastside Christian Church has planned a global compassion trip for this coming summer and we will be serving as part of the team! We will be traveling to KENYA on June 19th where we will be helping in Mathare Valley. We felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because we have loved serving in Mexico and want to serve in another country, we will meet our sponsor children, and we want to support getting kids educated in the slums . Steve and his family lived there for 3 years when he was young and we would love to see where his family served. My prayer is that we can contribute to our efforts by being able to serve the poor in Mathare Valley. 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 will be helping with projects there that include: bringing food, healthcare, rebuilding homes, gifting solar lights to families in dark shanty homes, caring for sick, children's activities, and helping to host spiritual conferences for men and women. We could use your help!
First, we would be honored if you would pray for us…for 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 $5,990 and it is due by June 16th. 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 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 us. Thank you 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!
