April & Caitlin at Camp des Cimes

We have started this fundraiser with great excitement and anticipation! April Welsh and Caitlin Martin have both been studying Worship Arts at Dallas Christian College, and April has just graduated! We have had many opportunities to lead people into worship here in the United States at school and at various women's retreats. Recently, we have been given the opportunity to lead worship daily for an English youth camp at Camp des Cimes (www.campdescimes.com) in Bourg d'Oisans, France, from July 15th-29th.

France is a dark place spiritually, but there are incredible lights hidden within the darkness. Only 4% of the population claims to be Christian and the choice to follow Christ is met with great skepticism. For many Christian youth, this camp serves as the only place they are not ridiculed or judged for being Christians. For non-Christians, the camp is a safe place for them to ask questions and start conversations. Year after year, kids say that even though they aren't Christians, they love the ambience or "feel" of the camp. It is, of course, our hope that multiple visits will open them to asking more questions about Christ and eventually (in their own time) committing to a relationship with Him.

This trip is a huge undertaking that we cannot accomplish alone, so I would like to share with you a few of our needs and give you an opportunity to participate with us. Our first need is for prayer. We are asking family, friends, and supporters to remember us before our Father as we prepare for this trip. Pray that we can raise adequate funds, that we would be able to influence lives in France in Christ's name, and that our hearts would be receptive to the lessons that God has in store for us there.

Our second need is finances "“ around $2,900 per person, so about $6,000-$6,500 for our little duo. We are raising support as a team. As you can imagine, international travel is expensive, and we will be in France during the peak summer tourist season. I believe that our time in July will be a valuable and worthy assistance to the Kingdom's cause in France. Would you consider making an investment in our team for the sake of the benefits that we will see at the camp?

Thank you so much for your consideration! 

With much love,

April & Caitlin
