Support Our Mission Trip to Guatemala City in March 2017

 

I am very excited about a ministry opportunity that I feel God is calling us to attend with our school, over Spring 2017 Break to Guatemala with my daughter, Miriah and son, Joey.  Last year we had an amazing missions trip to Belize ministering to young children. This year we are venturing on a new mission to minister to a community that our school is sponsoring.

 

Our Christian school is doing something that no school has ever done before--we have entered into a long term community partnership with Tabitha Ministry, which is a small community outside of Guatemala City.  We are being called to be a part of the pilot team to work with the people and children in a very small and specific place. Many of the moms make a living by rummaging through the city dump, selling their 'finds' to make money to feed their children. This ministry, called "Tabitha", helps support this rural community so that  children have a safe place to go while their mothers search for items to sell. It is our focus as a team to develop long term relationships with the people of this community, and develop friendships with about 100 children that our school is sponsoring.  We'll do this by serving in any way we can to be a blessing to them. We do not go there with an agenda, other than to be the "Light of Jesus" to them. 

 

The 3 of us in our family are seeking ways to raise money to raise the $1600 per person to go on this journey. Not only will the lives of the children and friends we meet in Guatemala be changed but ours as well. I am asking my friends to come along side me and have a vested interest in this journey. I have seen God work in other mission trips and I know He is a God of many resources.  We are excited to see the ways in which He will provide the funds to go. It is a joy to me to trust Him to provide exactly what we need. Please prayerfully consider ways you can help take part in this exciting journey.
