There are a few things in my life that I have ever felt so sure about but this trip is one of them! I am so thankful for the challenges, people, and paths that have led me to this trip. There are just two more things that I need to make this trip possible and I’m requesting your help. The first is prayer, prayer, and more prayer. I have days where I doubt myself and my abilities to do this trip. Please pray for confidence, ability, and skills I need. In addition, please pray for the entire team that will be traveling for safety and the resources needed to help the people in Nairobi not only while we are there but for a lasting legacy.
The last item needed is the funds for the trip. The entire trip including airfare, lodging, transportation and meals will cost $3300 per person. I know this amount seems like such a big amount but I am faithful that as God has guided me to this mission that he will also provide to reach this goal. Every amount counts and helps! The first payment of $1600 is due June 15th with the remaining due in July.
For any friends or family that are reading this I am requesting that in lieu of birthday, Christmas, or other gifts that you would give me over the next year that you would consider donating to my trip instead.
I know not everyone is able to financially give but I accept positive words, hugs, prayers, and advice :) Also keep in mind to pass this on if you do know anyone who might be in a position to give.
Thank you so much for taking the time to consider supporting me!
