Support Yevette's Servant Team Experience

Help Yevette serve and learn among vulnerable children in Portland and East Africa Preview

I am reaching out to you as a fellow sister in Christ in hopes that we can work together to critically transform communities locally and globally; in Portland, Oregon and East Africa. 

I have been selected to serve as a 2016 Servant Team member for Lahash International, a Christian organization that partners with local ministries across East Africa to bring the Good News of Jesus and holistic care to children in need. Lahash’s Servant Teams program specifically aims to equip individuals as missional leaders within their communities, through 10 months of experience-based training in missional theology, hands-on ministry work, and community development. Learn more here and don't miss the video above.

I recently earned a Master’s degree in Community Engagement, where I learned how to contribute to non-profit work as a local community organizer. Through my work in Salem, MA, I learned how to enable others to raise their own critical consciousness as valuable members within their community, allowing them to capitalize on that understanding as an opportunity to cultivate action-based change. My greatest hope is to serve as a vessel for community change wherever I may be. The Lord has led me down a path of service and I strongly believe that His plan includes addressing the injustices that hinder many of those who have been oppressed.

I am inviting you to be a part of this change by supporting me financially in this wonderful journey. Please join me in sharing the Gospel with communities across the world, and most of all join me in the process of building vital relationships, as these connections provide a foundation for bringing about the Gospel.

Through Servant Teams and your support, I will gain skills that will equip me to participate in serving people in need – in need of help and in need of God.

Trip Details:

  • 2016 September-December I'll be in Portland Oregon for training, service with community development corporation, and internship with Lahash International
  • 2017 January-June I'll travel to Tanzania where I'll intern with a local ministry that cares for the areas most vulnerable children, children affected by disease (especially HIV/AIDS), war, corruption, and extreme poverty.

Financial Details:

  •  I am looking for committed sponsors who are willing to contribute at minimum, $25 per month for a total of 10 months. One-time donations are also greatly appreciated! I need to raise a total of $12,500 to cover training, travel, food, and accommodation expenses. Checks can be made out to Lahash International (include my name on the Memo) or donate online here by clicking the "Give Now" button.
  • I am also looking for several people to join me as additional fundraisers. If you are not in a position to give financially (and even if you are) a great way to support me would be by clicking the button "Create Your Own Page" and filling out the form. You could then invite your network of family and friends who might be interested in join my team.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story and learn of my need. Please feel free to take the time to reflect and pray upon your decision and I hope to hear from you soon!

In Christ’s love, Yevette Garcia
