Friends and family!
Last summer, I was blessed by many of you to send me on a mission trip to El Salvador with Sports Outreach Institute (http://sportsoutreach.net) thanks to my church at Gospel Community (http://www.gospelcc.org).
I'm looking to not only go back, but to also go to Mexico this year as well! I love that they have given me the opportunity to serve in both mission trips and I need all your help again!
El Salvador - I am to go back and continue the mission of serving our Lord by ministering to a lovely community in Nuevo Cuscatlán, along with teaching English to children in various school we are partnered with and playing sports. Through these connections, we are able to freely share the gospel and continue to strengthen this relationship!
Mexico - a new location and what I've been told is that we are helping with construction in a small part of town while ministering to people. I love this trip because I've been learning carpentry the past year at Liberty and I'm excited to be a useful tool in this type of ministry.
What I need:
Prayers - all of you have a desire to do great things and be something great! But I truly believe that only God can help us accomplish the big (and sometimes even the small) things in our life. With your prayers, I know that there are many people supporting my back spiritually and I know your prayers help to bring light to people across the world, help get things done, and keep us safe put on the mission field.
Donations - because this is a sports ministry trip, we seek to donate and give as many types of soccer balls, along with other various sports balls that the kids can play with. If you know anyone that has any old and used soccer balls, please let me know!
Finance - I know this is the hardest thing for me to ask for, but after two years and 4 mission trips, you all have proven to me time and time again how important it is to serve out there as well as serving locally in our own land. Because of your financial support, you have helped saved lives by helping us to grant clean water to various communities in El Salvador, help me along with others build an eye clinic in Haiti so that people can see for the first time, and help share the love of Christ to those who otherwise may not have had a chance.
I am asking all of you to help me once again. My goal this year is bigger jan ever and it not only covers one mission trip, but two!
Goal: $3600 by May 1st
Depost: $600 by March 1st
