Dear friends and family,
I’d like to share with you a new way that God has chosen to use me. It is through a trip that I am going to take that will hopefully be a life changing experience for the people I come in contact with, as well as myself.
Can you envision a land where poverty, hardship, hunger and a lack of resources both spiritually and physically keep many from hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ? I want to share with you a challenging ministry opportunity God has presented to me. During August 4th -11th, I will be going to Peru with a team from The Ridge Church and LifePoint Church. Our one-week trip will focus on coming along side the people of a few small villages in Peru to help them both spiritually and materially. If we can help strengthen and encourage these people then they will be better equipped to carry on the Gospel when we leave. We will be allowing God to work in our lives through the personal enrichment that comes from this type of a mission trip. I’m certain God will change my life greatly as a result of stepping out to serve Him in this important area.
I’m so excited about the opportunities and experiences that lie ahead. This trip is a calling that has been heavy on my heart for some time now and I believe God will use me and the others on this trip in a mighty way. I hope you see the value in what we will accomplish. As you can imagine, a trip like this requires financial support from a number of people. In order to go on this mission trip I need to raise $1,200 by July 1st. If you can support me in a financial way, I would be very grateful. Any money raised above this amount will be donated to help some of the others on the team to meet their goal. And, most importantly, I also need your prayer support. Prayer is the fuel that will allow us to be successful as we follow God’s leading in our ministry in Peru. Without prayer, little, or nothing will happen.
Thank you so much for prayerfully considering if this is something you’d like to participate in. May God bless you for your time and support.
