Charis Marie & Burmese Refugees!!!

Hello! My name is Charis Marie DuBose. Many of you know me, but in case you don't, I am 12-years-old, a local of Huntington Beach and about to embark on a very special journey. While most tweenagers are looking forward to the beach and roasting s’mores this summer, I’m stoked about something quite special. You see, I'm passionate about helping people in extreme circumstances and feel, even at a young age, I can impact lives with my caring nature and positive attitude! This summer, I have an extraordinary opportunity to travel to the Philippians and Thailand to take part in helping Burmese Refugees as well as participating in a Relief Ministry. While in the Philippians, I will join the effort in assisting a Medical Relief Ministry that is actively focused on the villages affected by the recent Christmas-Day Cyclone, which devastated many Filipino families. Some of the things I will be doing include: • Teaching a camp of displaced villagers how to cook using a brand-new oven • Showing young girls how to prepare and cook meals to help feed their village • Encouraging young women who lost everything in the Cyclone In Thailand, I have the unique opportunity to work with a group of young Burmese refugees. These refugees have never left their village and I will have the chance to positively impact their lives by helping teach them the English language. This will by far open up numerous opportunities and help them become established citizens. My core purpose in this is using the Bible not only to teach them about the English language but also the story of God's rescuing love and how no matter what hardships you face in life; whether you are an American living in Huntington Beach or a refugee from Burma, there is a God who loves and cares for each one of us. I am asking you to join me in my initiative! I have a BIG goal to get me there - $2,500 – and I need your help! My trip will be from July 13 - August 7, 2017 Thank you in advance for your contribution and for joining me in my journey! Blessings! Charis Marie DuBose
