Kenya Mathare 2019 Eastside Beyond Borders|Claudia Pelaez-Wood

We're serving others in Kenya! Learn More

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 Kenya on June 19, 2019 and we will be working on many planned projects. Some of the items we'll be doing are; building a playground, assisting the Missions of Hope staff, hosting a women's conference, conducting Bible studies for the children, reaching out to the communities with Home visits and distributing solar lights to families.  I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because I have been wanting to go to Kenya for several years now, to visit the children that I have been sponsoring for a while, and the next opportunity will be a few years away.  I started sponsoring my first child in this area, Samuel, in 2014 and have added Derache in 2016 and Sylvia in 2018.   My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by meeting and working with the children during children's Bible studies and assist with craft projects that are fun for the children and at the same time share the Good News of Jesus .  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 $2995.00 and it is due by June 16, 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 Church 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!
