Dear Friends and Family,
This January, I have the opportunity and privilege to lead a missions team to Nicaragua with my church, Promise International Fellowship. My first trip to Nicaragua was in December of 2007 and has grown close to my heart since then. Within these 8 years, we've built incredible relationships with brothers and sisters from the church and school plants we have developed in Leon. I've also been able to meet and experience forming a relationship with my sponsor child Jimena, watching her grow for the past several years.
The experiences God has placed in my life through the people of Nicaragua have been life changing and has shaped who I've become and what I continue to do now. My encounter with the children there and seeing first hand their need for quality education was a founding pillar of my decision to become the teacher I am today. It was the place where Christ began cultivating my heart for mission work and felt His overflowing heart for His children. It is the place where I first shared my testimony as a young adult with strangers about what the power of the cross has done for me and that they too can experience such an unfathomable love and truth.
During this trip, my team and I will be assisting with maintenance of the schools we've planted, delivering book bags and school supplies to the sponsor children in rural villages, and caring for needs of the staff who we consider our extended family.
The cost of this trip will amount to $1500 which will cover my transportation and stay for the duration of this trip. Any funds raised beyond what is needed will be donated to the ministry work being done in Nicaragua. If you would like to partner with me in continuing this mission work, you can support me financially through this site.
You can also support by praying for my team and I as we prepare all things necessary to take care of the children and growing ministry as the Lord has called us to. I am privileged to get to be a part of building His kingdom.
