Dear Friends and Family,
I want to share some exciting news with you! Eastside Christian Church has planned a global compassion trip for this coming summer and my Mom and I will be serving as part of the team! We will be traveling to Kenya on June 20th and spending time in the HOT rural northern Kenya, known as Turkana. We will bring solar power to families giving them light/power, as well as installing solar powered street lights. We will build homes for families living in wind torn huts and spend time with the children living there. In addition, we will go to the Mathare Valley and have the opportunity to meet Leah, the little girl that we have sponsored for so many years at Missions of Hope! We are both very excited!! I feel a strong desire to be a part of this trip because of so many reasons. I have always wanted to travel to Africa and spread the love of God to the beautiful people who live there. Going to a place so completely different from the United States will open my eyes and not only help the people of Kenya, but better understand myself as a person and as a Christian. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by spreading my love to the people of Mathare and Turkana. I can't wait to play with kids and learn from them. I also can't wait to positively change the lives of people who may have thought they were forgotten by the world. 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. My Mom and 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. Prayer is something my Mom and I feel strongly about and having your prayers would mean so much to both of us. 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 we must raise is $5,990.00 and it is due by June 10th.
