Last July, I was blessed with the opportunity to go on my first mission trip to Belize with First Baptist Church of Frederick. I went with a great team and had the most wonderful and fulfilling time serving with my brothers and sisters in Christ. (Read more about the trip... http://shannonwooten.wordpress.com/2013/08/09/a-look-into-the-belize-mission-trip/

I knew that when I got back from Belize, it wouldn't be my only mission trip. I wanted more! I am eager to serve more and there isn't anything more fulfilling than being His hands and feet. 

While in Belize, we worked with a wonderful missionary family. Mark and Sarah are such wonderful people and have beautiful and happy daughter, Avi. Mark, Sarah, and Avi have since relocated to Southern Belize to serve at an orphanage. When I heard of their relocation, I immediately thought about how touching it would be to serve at an orphanage. 

Our church announced that not only will there be another mission trip to Belize, but it will be to Southern Belize to serve at the orphanage at the end of July.

God is calling me! I told Ben over and over that if we returned to Belize, that I had hoped and prayed that it would be to Southern Belize, to serve with Mark, Sarah, and Avi at the orphanage. Well... he answered my prayer! 

I am blessed to have such wonderful family and friends that supported my first mission trip to Belize. Without my family and friends, the mission trip wouldn't have been possible. It was stressful trying to raise money but in the end, it proved to me that God will always provide. 

 

I humbly ask for donations so I can continue to serve!
These donations will cover the travel fees, sleeping arrangments, food, and to purchase supplies before the trip. 

Acts 20:35
In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, "˜It is more blessed to give than to receive.'

1 Samuel 12:24 
Only fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things he has done for you.


Ephesians 5:1-2

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
