Dear Family and Friends,
Hello from the Pine Tree Academy graduating class of 2017! Since 1987, each Pine Tree Academy senior class has embarked on a mission trip with the goal of assisting those in need. Previous classes have traveled to places such as Puerto Rico, Ireland, Jamaica, Africa, and Guatemala, to name just a few. The service activities we participate in vary, from building churches and homes from the ground up, renovating homes, hosting bible meetings for children, to providing medical care. Regardless of the outlet, all activities are geared around our school motto: “Ye are the light of the world.” (Matt. 5:14) Our plan is to shine our light in Javier Rojo Gomez of Quintana Roo, Mexico during our own Senior Mission Trip this spring and we ask for your participation in our journey getting there. This mission trip will be a joint effort with medical professionals who have a longstanding relationship with local leadership. In addition to providing medical care and doing children’s ministries, we plan to construct a church. We are excited about this opportunity to serve. So far our class has raised funds by stacking wood for church neighbors, hosting the Pine Tree Academy Fall Festival, organizing a 5k, going out to the local community to advertise with our very own Spiral Wishing Well during Black Friday, and more. We have raised $14,000 of our $25,000 goal - we are already over halfway there! But it will take more than the students and class sponsors working together to get all seventeen of us and our sponsors off the ground. The support - spiritual, emotional, and fiscal - from our friends, family, church community, and local community is very important, and every bit counts. We are so grateful for the role you have already played in our lives, bringing us to this point. We ask that you would prayerfully consider giving to this project so we can share Christ’s light with the people of Javier Rojo Gomez , Mexico this spring. As a school that focuses on Him whose light overcomes all darkness, please join us in sharing His joy with the world. Thank you for the gift you are considering - your support will make an eternal impact in our lives and on the lives of those we encounter on this mission trip. May God’s joy and peace surround you.
