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 on June 20th where we will be bringing gifts of solar lights to families in desperate need, caring for the sick, hosting a transformational conference for women as well as the opportunity to meet our sponsor children. I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip now because for so long I let fear take over my life. I was always worried about the "what ifs" and making excuses not to go, believing my voice didn't need to be shared. I realized that God has been calling me to a greater mission that is way bigger than myself. It is now time for me to be brave and bold and step out of my comfort zone and respond to the call that God has for me. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by sharing the Gospel and the joy that I have experienced through my walk with Jesus. 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 $2900 and it is due by May 30th . If you wish to partner with me, 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!
