Hello wonderful people! My name is Michaela Smith and I have been given an amazing opportunity to serve along side my church family in Zambia this summer! (May 31-June 9)
We will be going to the George compound located just outside of Ndola Zambia. While there, the trip will include a VBS for students to introduce them and their hearts to Christ. I have helped my church, Gashland Baptist with their VBS and was able to go to South Dakota on another missions trip with my church in 2011 to help with theirs as well! My heart is for helping and serving children!
There will also be a pastor's conference for the indigenous ministers called to serve in Zambia. As a team, we will also host a large community meal. Last year, nearly 1,000 people were in attendance, so it will be a great opportunity to share the Gospel.
If you know me, you know this is a huge leap of faith for me. I trust that God has called me to serve and be a light to the people of Zambia.
This trip will cost 3000 dollars but I have no doubt God will provide. These funds will not only cover travel costs and daily living but will supply the fellowship meal to the community and provide the resources and means to put together and host the VBS program. These will all be great opportunities to spread the love of God to the Zambian people!
I humbly ask that you join me in my faith by giving financially whatever God leads you to give.
If you can not give financially please send prayers! Pray for me as I surrender to what God has placed before me. Pray for the other people of Gashland who are stepping out in faith as well. Lastly, pray for the people of Zambia to have open ears and open hearts.
Thank you so much!
