Dear Friends and Family,
I'm thrilled to announce I'm returning to Kenya! Once again, I'll be traveling with our church, Eastside Christian Church on a global compassion trip this coming summer. I'm excited to be serving as a team leader and assisting others on their global journey. I will be traveling with a large group to Nairobi, Kenya on June 20th, where we will be conducting home visits, distributing food and solar lanterns and hosting a sponsored student's picnic and women's conference. I desire to return to Kenya because of the wonderful relationships I have formed with our ministry partners and my strong desire to continue to strengthen those bonds. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by applying my leadership skills toward planning the women's conference. I feel incredibly blessed to have this opportunity to provide encouragement and support to our Kenyan brothers and sisters. I know from experience there is much to do as we begin to prepare. I'm honored to once again ask for your help.
I would like to humbly and gratefully ask if you would pray for us…for preparation, for our journey, our ministry and for the spiritual battles we will certainly encounter. Additionally, I'd like to ask if you would be willing to 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 $2900 and it is due by June 10th. If you wish to support my journey, please click on the “GIVE NOW” button to donate. (If you wish to opt out of covering the cost of the credit card fee, you may do so.) If you prefer to give a check or cash donation, please make your check payable to “Eastside Christian Church” and note my name and "Kenya Mathare 2018" on the memo line and mail/bring it to the address below. Contributions to our project are tax-deductible. I greatly appreciate your prayers and support, and thank you for considering being a part of my team. If you have any questions, I’d love the opportunity to tell you more. Feel free to call, text or email me!
