I'm so excited about serving in Peru this summer, but I need your prayers and support to get me there.
UPDATE: You probably noticed that all of my support has been raised (Praise God!!!), but don't let that keep you from giving. Any further support I recieve will go towards other team members' trip. Thank you so much! (:
You might remember the incredible experience I had last summer, in Monrovia, Liberia. Well, I’m headed overseas once again - but this time it’s to Lima, Peru!
After returning home from Liberia, I started my junior year of high school. It’s been a busy year, from looking at different colleges to struggling through pre-calculus. My mom keeps my siblings and I really busy with school, and I think I learn something new every day.
When I’m not doing school, I love to play the piano, write, and swim. Also, God has given me the privilege of mentoring several younger girls in a Bible study. However, this school year is coming to a close, along with piano competition season, and I’m really looking forward to what God has in store for me in the coming months.
One of the things I’m most excited about is my mission trip to Peru, from July 28 to August 6. I am going with a team from my church (Christ Church), through Young Life Expeditions. Expeditions exists to help international Young Life ministries by sending teams to support their work. Our role is to come alongside these ministries in order to help them reach teens with the Gospel.
More specifically, we will be helping with youth camps, visiting orphanages, and doing work projects for the community. The ministry we will be working with the most is Young Life’s special needs ministry, Capernaum. We will be doing a lot of relational work; in fact, I may also have the opportunity of staying with a Peruvian family.
You can help, first of all, by praying. Please pray that God will protect and provide for us. Pray for unity within our team. Also, pray that He will prepare our hearts, and the hearts of the people we will be serving.
The second way you can help is through financial support. Each of us must raise $2500, which will go towards airfare, lodging, food, and supplies. Please consider giving – any amount will be helpful.
Thank you so much!
With love in Christ,
