Kenya Mathare 2019 Eastside Beyond Borders|Vinson Family

We're serving others in Kenya! Learn More

Dear Friends and Family,

We wanted to share some exciting news with you! Eastside Christian Church has planned a global compassion trip for this coming summer and Rachel and I will be serving as part of the team! We will be traveling to Kenya on June 19, 2019 where we will be participating in many exciting projects!   Some of these projects include: home visits to families in the Mathare Valley - bringing food, healthcare and prayer; rebuilding homes; gifting solar lights to families in dark shanty homes, physically caring for the sick; sharing joy through children’s activities; and helping to host life changing spiritual conferences for men and women.  

We felt a strong desire to be a part of this trip because we wanted to step outside of our comfort zones to love others without any hesitation.  Our prayer is that we can contribute to our efforts by being the hands and feet of Jesus ... and opening our hearts and eyes to serve, love and give ... as we care for the poor in the Mathare Valley.  Since Julie has served in Kenya in previous years, it is extremely exciting to share this opportunity with Rachel - who has watched mom travel to Kenya since she was 4 years old.  Rachel is excited to finally meet her "Kenyan brothers and sisters" whom our family has sponsored over the past 11 years.  We feel blessed to have this incredible opportunity to help others and know there is a lot of work ahead as we begin to prepare. We could use your help!

First, we would be honored if you would pray for us…for preparation, for our journey, our ministry and for the spiritual battles surely ahead. Secondly, we’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 we must personally raise together is $5990 and it is due by June 16, 2019.  If you wish to partner with us 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 our names (VINSON) 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 us.  Thank you for considering being a part of our team. If you have any questions we’d love the opportunity to tell you more so just call, text or email us!
