Echo Nicaragua Team
A team for DULLES COMMUNITY CHURCH
Echo Youth Trip to support Puenta de Amistad Orphanage in Nicaragua
From August 12-19th, we are sending 13 teenagers and their leaders to Nicaragua. Our church has a long-term relationship with an orphanage in the small community of El Canyon called Puente de Amistad. This orphanage houses children from birth to age 15. We will have the chance to continue our relationship with the orphans and serve the whole community of El Canyon. We will be working with feeding centers, supplying the needs of the orphanage, providing rice, beans and oil to the community, and supporting the efforts of a local church in the community. I want to stress this is not a vacation; we are going there to serve and work hard to bring help to these people any way we can. These people are in need of physical and spiritual care, and you can take part in providing them with that help. The orphanage has four areas of care that we will partner with them to promote: Education, Health, Dignity & Self-Esteem, and Spiritual Development. The orphanage staff has requested for our team to come and provide friendship and encouragement to the kids as we support their programs.
The trip will cost each participant a total of $1200. Would consider giving a tax-deductible donation toward the trip cost? Any amount you can give will help make my participation in this trip possible. I will be working hard this summer to raise the money needed to go, and I would love your help.
