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 Kenya on June 20, 2018 where we will be hosting a Ladies' conference in the Mathare Valley, building homes and working with the students in the Turkana, building a playground for the students in Kargi and giving solar lights and food to needy families all while sharing the Gospel message and the love of Jesus with the Kenyan people. I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because I was privileged to go to Kenya last year and I fell in love with the Kenyans in the Mathare Valley slums as well as those in Turkana. I sponsor an 11 year old boy, Ashley, from the Mathare Valley and a five year old girl, Lucy, from Turkana (both pictured above) and I am SOOOO excited to go back to Kenya to see them, hug them, love on them and spend some time with them!! Words cannot express how touched I was to be a able to serve in Kenya last Summer and I feel SOOO compelled to return again this Summer to be the hands and feet of Jesus for people who are so less fortunate than I. I feel incredibly blessed to be given this opportunity to help others and know there is a lot of work ahead as my team and I prepare for our Beyond Borders Mission trip 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. 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 $2995.00 and it is due by June 10, 2018. If you wish to partner with me in this ministry, I would be greatly humbled for any amount you can put toward my fundraising goal. please click on the “GIVE NOW” button if you feel called to do so. (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. Contributions to our project are tax-deductible.
Thank you for considering being a part of my team. You are very important to me and I really appreciate you taking the time to read my page!! May the Lord be with you and bless you always!! If you have any questions I’d love the opportunity to tell you more so just call, text or email me!
