Hi to both the Church and internet community. My name is Philip Burchill I am a student that is about to graduate from Azusa Pacific University with a B.A. in Biblical Studies who is sensing God's call to missions.I am heading to Mozambique, Africa to serve with Iris ministries by founder Heidi Baker. I will be staffing what is called a Harvest School(a 10 week missionary training school) June 1-August 7 that equips believers to be sent out to preach the gospel in missions. This will involve leading a house group,serving the practical needs of the ministry, teaching, ministering to the surrounding community, serving the poor and co-leading a team to Nepal which is an (extended outreach) that follows graduation of the school August 7th-22. In Nepal the team and I will come alongside Iris ministries base in Nepal to share the love of G-d in the streets, feed the poor, street kids, minister to the sick, remote villages, leper colonies and public orphanages. My choosing for this location is due to my previous service last year in Nepal and future desire to serve there long-term. If I may be so bold to ask that you would pray for me and considering donating financially. The deadline to meet the goal will be April 25th, due to the increasing cost sooner will be ideal. The finances will predominantly go to (transportation), along with visa and food. Because I'm staffing, living expenses and basic cuisine will be covered in Mozambique but not in Nepal.
