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, building 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 after my first mission trip to Rosarito, Mexico I was moved spiritually and was baptized, ever since then I have dove in and loved every step of the way. From joining a small group and the table leading group during our Wednesday night young adult service, I have thanked God for each step. I want to go on this trip to share the word of God and to spread his love for his children across the world. My prayer is to be used in ways that I may not know but that I can strive in. I pray for the fellow members embarking on this journey and that we all may be safe and lean on the one who has brought us all together. I ask for the strength to be at my best after the travel and physical conditions that this trip may bring. And I ask for my story, my hands, my voice, and my heart to be used for the people of Turkana, Kenya. 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. 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 $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 note my name and "Kenya Turkana 2018" in the memo line and mail/bring it to the address below.
