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 Turkana, Kenya on June 20th to July 2nd where we will be using solar power to help provide water to the harsh desert communities, build homes for those families living in wind battered huts, and develop relationships with the neighboring Mission of Hope International (MOHI) school. I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because I strongly believe that every individual in this world deserves to feel the unconditional love of Jesus Christ. After traveling to Mexico, Thailand, and Laos last year, I desire to now help spread love to the people of Kenya. I have developed a passion for traveling and reaching the unreachable. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by distributing joy through laughter and smiles. 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. Additionally, I would be beyond thankful if you would consider contributing financially to the work we are doing.
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 $2995 and it is due by June 10th! 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 write “Brooke Gonzalez - Kenya Turkana 2018" in the memo line and mail/bring it to the address below. Contributions to our project are tax-deductible.
I truly value your support of me and the work I will be doing in Kenya and Turkana. 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!
Thank you so much!
