Mission Trip: July 8-15, 2017
Hello my sisters.
I would like to take this opportunity to share with you some information about an upcoming mission trip that my family and I will be taking this summer. My husband and I have been to Nicaragua four separate times on mission trips and this summer we are taking our daughter Jacqueline who is 4 years old with us for the first time as well. My husband and I will also be leading this trip this year for the first time too, which is very exciting, but also a big responsibility.
We are proudly partnering with Chosen Children’s Ministries (https://www.ccm.life/) for this venture as we have before. CCM is a wonderful organization filled with spirit filled people whom we admire greatly. They only have a few weeks off per year and work tirelessly from early morning hours to late evenings daily for our team. While we are there, we will be rebuilding a pastor’s house, which is falling apart at its foundation (Picture below), evangelizing throughout the Paradise community in Nicaragua, as well as doing VBS daily for the children.
We will be going for 1 week, from July 8-15th this summer. There are many ways you can partner with us in this journey, if you feel so led. First and foremost we need prayer. Prayer for planning leading up to the trip, passports that need to be applied for, as well as money that needs to be raised. We are a team of 12 and this means lots of coordination, planning, and money to be raised. Our church Clearwater Community Church is having a garage sale on April 7th and 8th from 7 AM to 1 PM and all proceeds will benefit our summer mission trips, so stop on by. You can also drop off your treasures for our garage sale beginning April 2nd in the lobby of our student center. We are also collecting travel size toiletries to hand out in Nicaragua examples would be toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, bandaids etc. Lastly financial support is another way you can help, if you feel so led. I will be sharing some information with our sisters at bible study shortly as well and I am always available to answer any questions you may have. Thanks for listening.
