Dear family and friends,
I am privileged to be a part of a special mission team that will be traveling with Victory World Church to Nicaragua this summer. The dates of the trip are July 27-August 3, 2013. The team will be working with Mike and Deborah Turner, founders of LifeLink International, a non-profit missionary organization based in Florida, with field offices in Nicaragua.
Nicaragua is the second poorest nation in the western hemisphere and is a country in great need of many resources such as medical, dental, hygiene and agriculture. Many missionaries left Nicaragua during the civil war in the 1980’s and never returned. This has left one of the least visited countries in Latin America by missionaries, church groups and others. LifeLink International is responding to this need by identifying Nicaragua as one of their main projects with plans to build a ministry base complete with a church, medical, dental, and hygiene facility. The church has been completed and has approximately 250 attending on a weekly basis. During our trip we will be doing construction on the base and treating an estimated 1,000 people in medical clinics.
I believe that God has put it on my heart to be a servant to those in need and has given me the opportunity to do so through this trip. I would like to ask you to keep my team and I in your prayers so that we may have a safe and successful trip. Also, since we are responsible to raise our entire trip cost of $1,400, I would like to ask you to prayerfully consider if He would have you be a part of this wonderful opportunity to share the gospel with the people of Nicaragua.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and pray you can contribute in any way!
