Dear Friends and Family,

I wanted to share some exciting news with you! I'm going back to Kenya!! Eastside Christian Church has planned a global compassion trip for this coming summer and I could not feel more blessed for the opportunity to go back. This summer I will be LEADING my own small group team. Although I am extremely nervous, I am eager and willing to see how God uses me in this new and bold experience. I will be traveling to Mathare Kenya on June 19th where we will be holding a women's conference, building a playground, hosting a special needs workshop for parents, visiting homes, participating in a VBS, and so much more! I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because of the impact that Kenya had on my heart last summer. I went in hopes to make a difference to other's but every person I met ended up changing me! I left a piece of my heart in Kenya, and this time around I will get to meet my beautiful sponsor boy Prevailar Barack! I am so excited. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by assisting in the special needs project because working with children is a great passion of mine. I hope to continue growing my faith in Christ, build relationships with fellow Eastsiders, and bring love, hope, and joy to each person I encounter. I am looking forward to jump on opportunities that push me outside my comfort zone and fully experience all that God has planned for me. I feel blessed to have this incredible opportunity to help others and know there is a lot of work ahead as we begin to prepare. I could use your help!

First, I would be honored if you would pray for us…for preparation, for our journey, our ministry and for the spiritual battles surely ahead. Secondly, I'd like to know if you would contribute to the work we are doing by covering part of the cost of the trip.

Each team member has been entrusted with raising an equal share of the total cost to send us. The amount I must personally raise is $1500.00 and it is due by June 9th, 2019. If you wish to partner with me in this ministry please click on the “GIVE NOW” button to donate. (There is an option to cover the cost of the credit card fee that you can opt out of if you prefer.) Or if you prefer to give a check or cash donation you can make your check payable to “Eastside Christian Church” and note my name and "Kenya-Mathare 2019" in the memo line and mail/bring it to the address below. Contributions to our project are tax-deductible. You're very important to me. Thank you for considering being a part of my team. If you have any questions I’d love the opportunity to tell you more so just call, text or email me!

“We rise by lifting others.” Thank you for continuing to be an inspiration and mentor to others. Get after it kid.
You’re such an inspiration to do this trip and really make an impact on the lives of others, especially youth. I’m sure you’re a bit nervous about being in charge of your own group, but I know that your strong leadership skills will help others find greatness that is already in them. What you do has far greater impact than what you say, and I know that you will be an incredible example to those in
