I will be traveling with Cross Point Community Church to Haiti June 9-16, 2013...and YOU can help me get there!
Hey y’all! My name is Jennifer Dotson and I will be traveling with Cross Point Community Church June 8 – 15th, 2013 Haiti for a mission trip. We will be partnering with Mission Lazarus Haiti in traveling for VBS and construction. Haiti has one of the largest slums in the Northern Hemisphere. Many people live on about $1.25 per day. Most of the homes do not have bathrooms. In 2007, it was expected that there were around 300,000
orphans in Haiti…and that number most likely doubled after the earthquake. That is not ok.
I have felt like God was calling me to go on a global
mission trip for awhile now, but to be perfectly honest… fear trumped me getting out of my comfort zone and I pushed this trip aside. A few weeks ago I finally made the decision to follow through and go on what is sure to be the experience of a lifetime!
Too often, we believe “I can’t make a difference. The hurt and need, is just too great.” I realize I am just one person and as an individual, I cannot change the world. But I also believe that every life is a gift, and I want to use mine to help leave this world a better place than when I arrived.
I know you get hit up for money all the time through various
organizations, so I completely understand if you aren’t in a place to financially contribute. However, if you can…I would be forever grateful. And if you can’t? Keep me in your prayers. I am going on this journey with four great friends. We have started “Team Go 2013.” I would love for each of you to go to our website www.teamgo2013.com and follow our journey through the next year of our lives. It’s going to be great!
