Kenya Mathare 2019 Eastside Beyond Borders|Marissa Mandoki

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 19th, 2019 where we will be providing many services to the people in Mathare. From holding a Women's conference to visiting individuals to help them however we can. I felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because I have wanted to help with the compassion team since I started attending Eastside. Eastside Christian Church supports the children who live in Kenya and receive help through partnership with our church. This is my summer to take advantage of what God has allowed me to do and go beyond myself to serve others who are in need. My prayer is that I can contribute to our efforts by doing God's work and serving alongside a wonderful team. I am looking forward to connecting with people from Kenya and helping anyway that I can. 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 $2,696 and it is due by June 16th. 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 so much 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!

Exciting updates!! This past Sunday(2/17) I had a meeting with everyone that will be going to Mathare as well. I met my small group, found out more plans, and got to know more about the trip. I am filled with such excitement, anticipation, and joy! Some of the projects include holding a woman's conference, teaching Vacation Bible School, helping out with hospice care for families in Mathare Valley, building a playground and more! I have been recycling cans and bottles, picking up extra shifts, and talking to others. Prayers for safe travels, strength, and patience are much appreciated for me and everyone going!
