Our youth group will be traveling to Belize this summer and your support is greatly appreciated! Please check out the video below!
Dear Family and Friends,
This summer I will be traveling with my youth group to Belize. This is a mission trip that I have been looking forward to and praying about. Being able to serve the less fortunate is a large passion of mine. When we are there we will work with sports ministries, construction, children’s ministries, visiting orphanages and the elderly and most importantly evangelizing.
On the mission trip last year to West Virginia, I had an amazing experience. I worked with a kid’s program and it was so heart tugging. The moments that I was able to experience there were so encouraging to me and my faith.
I would like to thank those who supported me last year because without your prayers and financial help I wouldn’t have been able to go to West Virginia and I probably wouldn’t be looking forward to fundraising for Belize. This will be somewhat of a culture shock to me, since I have never been south of Florida. If you could pray that our team would respect the culture we will experience and the people we will encounter there. Also if you could pray for safe travels and that while we are serving we would stay healthy.
So much planning has gone into this trip and we are preparing our hearts for the wonderful opportunity that God has blessed us with. We will be serving in Belize for a week. The wonderful thing about serving in this country is that we get to experience a third world country while still speaking English, because it is their first language. The opportunity to visit another country I have never been to, is so amazing. Not only do I get to be in another country but I get to serve God’s children there as well. This will let us see how vast God’s love is. It isn’t only in Libertyville, rather it touches all ends of the Earth. I am so excited to be the light to people, while I am there. Jesus calls us to be disciples and spread his love and word. I hope that I can change lives while I am there and bring some to God, but I feel that I will walk away from the trip more changed then those we served.
In order for me to travel to Belize I need to pay $1500. I understand during economic times that it is hard to give so if you cannot support me financially I know that my team and I would treasure the prayers you have for us.
God Bless You!
