Dear Friends and Family,
I wanted to share some exciting news with you! I am working with a global compassion trip for this coming summer and I will be serving as part of the team! I will be traveling to Kenya where we will be working with families in the slums of Mathare. We will serve that community. We will physically bring food and light to those in need, and we will do service projects to create the best environment for those there. The idea is that you meet the needs of people which gives you the opportunity to share the love of God with them. We can then be salt and light to them in a spiritual sense which is what God has called us to do. I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because I know in my heart God wants me to step out in faith this year. This trip is a part of His plan for me. I am excited to see what God has in store!
I was in Kenya seven years ago and the love of the people there changed my life. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by being open to serve in whatever way I can to share the love of God with the families in Mathare. Those I met there seven years ago gave me the name 'Mutanu’. It means "cheerful one". Please be a part of bringing 'Mutanu' back to Kenya! I feel blessed to have this incredible opportunity to help others, and I know there is a lot of work ahead as we begin to prepare. I could also 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 $2900.00 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. This means you are partnering with me to impact lives for Christ. If you have any questions I’d love the opportunity to tell you more so just call, text, message, or email me! I appreciate your consideration and I am already thankful for what God is going to do! Blessings and miracles to you!
