Please help me serve the Lord

Hi there, wonderful friends and family!

Through prayer and much deliberation, i feel that i have been led to participate in a mission trip to serve our Lord with the Vineyard Community Church to Dungannon, Ireland this summer! In August, a group including myself and about 20-25 others will travel to Ireland to lead a Youth Outreach Conference with a sister Vineyard Church there.

Part of what we will do includes:

hosting a kid’s club to reach out to children in the community;

reaching out to the elderly through service projects and nursing home visits;

grocery outreaches where we are able to give food away to those in need;

Praying for the sick and others in the community.

This trip will be quite a challenge, but has the potential to change lives forever, and turn hearts to Christ as we go to help meet both physical and spiritual needs of the people of Ireland. This mission is very important as we take upon us God’s challenge to go into all the world… teaching and baptizing in His name.

I’m writing this letter to humbly ask for your support in making it possible for me to go on this amazing journey. The first and most important support you can give me is prayers. Please spend some time speaking to God and pray for me as I prepare for the trip, and as I depart, (if you're willing). I know God will bless your prayers and the efforts of the team I will be a part of and me. A major part of being a missionary is raising our own support. The idea is to learn what it is like to depend on God to make the trip possible, and it encourages you to be personally involved.

Obviously, it costs quite a bit to go on a trip like this. By June 21, I am hoping to find several people who are willing to contribute $50 towards the trip or if you feel led to contribute a greater or lesser amount, that would also be wonderful. $50 from each person I am contacting would help to cover the cost of airfare, ground transportation, food, supplies, and lodging. The approximate trip cost for each person is $1,700.

Would you be willing to be one of my supporters? If so, please click on the link below to be directed to a paypal account where you can donate. All contributions are tax deductible. Thank you so much for considering this, and also for your encouragement, support, and prayers. I will be sure to keep you updated with photos and other info as I embark on this life changing adventure!

In Him,
