Dear Friends and Family,
I wanted to share some exciting news with you! Eastside Christian Church has planned a global compassion trip for this coming summer and I will be serving as part of the team! I will be traveling to Mathare, Kenya on June 19 where we will be attending conferences, sharing our stories and teaching sermons at services, building playgrounds, working with families and children in homeless environments, working with the main ministry that we are partnering up with, and much more! I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because I have been wanting to go back and do mission work again since my first mission trip to Guatemala 6 years ago that changed my life forever. I have always had a heart to serve others and going to Kenya will be an amazing opportunity to get out of my comfort zone again and see what amazing things god will do down there when me and my team arrive. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by serving others, connecting with people in Kenya, and most importantly serving the lord. 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 $2695 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, "Anjelica Gonzalez" 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!
