Dear Friends and Family,
We are excited to share with you that once again will be returning to Kenya this summer, June 20th, on a short-term mission trip with our church, Eastside Christian. As you know, we have a passion for the Kenyan people and a continued desire to partner with Missions of Hope International (MOHI) who is educating children and providing hope to families living in extreme poverty. This year our team consists of approximately 90 people and many of whom are first time mission travelers.
This trip we will again be small group leaders of a team of 10-15 people. We will be taking food and solar lights from shanty to shanty while sharing the gospel to people that have never heard it before. Continuing our efforts from last year, we will again be hosting a women’s conference and this year we will also host a men’s event. Other possible ministry projects may include a sports camp, photo project, and playground equipment installation. We feel so blessed once again to have this incredible opportunity to help others and know there is a lot of work ahead as we begin to prepare. We could use your help!
First, we would be truly honored if you would pray for us…for our preparation and journey as leaders, for our team, our ministry and for the spiritual battles surely ahead. Secondly, we would like to know if you would consider contributing to the work we are doing by donating to the ministry.
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 $5,800 and it is due by May 30th. 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 our names and "Kenya 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 us. We could not do this year after year without your help and for that, we are forever grateful. Thank you for being a part of our team. We value each and every one of you. If you have any questions we would love the opportunity to tell you more so just call, text or email us!
