Dear Friends and Family,
We wanted to share some exciting news with you! Eastside Christian Church has planned a global compassion trip for this coming summer and we will be serving as part of the team! We will be traveling to Kenya on June 20, where we will be bringing food to families, building homes, bringing gifts of solar lights, caring for the sick, sharing joy through children's activities and hosting a women's conference. We felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip to be of service to the people of the Mathare Valley. We also are excited to meet our sponsored children, Yvonne and Cosmos, personally! Our prayer is that we can contribute by being willing to serve wherever and however God leads during our time there. We feel blessed 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!
Mostly, we would be honored if you would pray for us…for preparation, for our journey, our ministry and for the spiritual battles surely ahead. Secondly, we'd like to know if you would contribute to the ongoing work of the amazing ministry that is going on there.
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 $5900 and it is due by May 30. 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 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 us. Thank you for considering being a part of our team. If you have any questions we’d love the opportunity to tell you more so just email us!
-Richard and Leslie
