Dear Family and Friends,

In March of 2018, I am going to receive an incredible blessing—I am going on a

“Faith Adventure” to UGANDA with a group of 8th graders from Mariners Church

in Irvine, California! Our team of six 8th graders, our parents, and leaders is the

FIRST Junior High Team in the 50-year history of Mariners Church to make an

overseas trip like this one.

Our African partner, The Ggaba Community Church in the Ugandan capital of

Kampala, has projects that involve 200 other local churches to help restore a

country devastated by war, past dictatorship, famine, and poverty. Uganda is a

country of CHILDREN with the youngest average population of any country in

the world. Fifty percent of the population is 14 years old or younger and many

are orphans. The average monthly income is only $30. We want to go to work

alongside local leaders with children in orphanages and local community

programs to enable children with little opportunity to have better lives.

Going to Uganda will open my eyes to the needs of people internationally,

especially people in a country who live in a culture and situation very differently

from the way I live in the United States. My mom and I both feel that God is

calling us to serve others, not only in our community, but worldwide and are so

excited to have been chosen as part of this team! I expect to learn about a new

culture, country, and the challenges of the people living there. I imagine that

country, and the challenges of the people living there and know this will change

me and help me grow into a better relationship with God. I look forward to

building relationships with people in an unfamiliar culture.

I ask you to go on this journey with me by giving in TWO ways. The first way is

through PRAYER. We as a team need prayer for the courage to build

relationships and the openness to experience God’s presence. The second way

you can give is FINANCIALLY. This part will be challenging because the amount

seems impossible to raise, but with God’s help I believe that it will be possible to

give what you can in any of those two ways.

Please give as generously as you are able. We need to raise $8,500 for both of

us. The link to our website is https://www.grouprev.com/

ugandajhmfaithadventure2018-jeanandlachlan if you would like to give online

directly to Mariners Church or by check to Mariners Church in the envelope

provided. All donations are tax deductible.

Thank you in advance for any support! I know this journey will teach us many

new things. I will be blogging about this adventure and will let you know when I

start.

Sincerely,

Lachlan Alexander
