We're serving others in Kenya! Learn More

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 Kenya on  the 20th of June where we will be visiting people in one of the largest slums of Africa and sharing the gospel with them along with food and solar lights. We will also be building a playground for the local school, holding a women's conference for the employees of Missions of Hope International and my favorite part, reuniting with my five Kenyan children! I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because last years trip was so incredibly healing for me. It changed my life in so many ways and set the course for important decisions that continue to shape my life journey today. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by inspiring other women (most of which are single moms and widows like me) to live the lives God has called them to live and rise from their ashes. 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 $2,900 and it is due by June. 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 2018" 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!

I am unable to go to Africa this year because of a previous commitment in Costa Rica at the same time. Last year's trip with you was a wonderful life-affirming experience I will always cherish in my heart. I will miss seeing my sponsored child Esther (at Panganini School) this year. Have a safe journey!
