Dear Friends and Family,
Eastside Christian Church has a global compassion trip for this coming summer and I have joined the missionary team! I will be traveling to Kenya on June 20th to serve one of the largest slums just outside of Nairobi. Some of the team projects are: "bring the light" (we provide families with solar lights and present the gospel in tandem), VBS for the children of 5 local schools, and a 1-day conference hosting approx 600 local women.
I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip as an invited guest speaker for the women's conference AND from my historic heart for the nations. This trip and its possibilities are incredibly exciting. Mathare is a 3 mile x 1 mile area and home to 1 MILLION people. The things that our team will be able to accomplish for the Kingdom are beyond my hopes and dreams.
These precious people live on less than $2.00 dollars a
First, I would be honored if you would pray for the team…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 10, 2018. 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!
