Several years ago as a youth, I took part in an outreach that changed my life forever. It was hosted and organized by King's Kids El Paso and took place in Juarez Mexico, The aim was to reach out to people by way of construction work on homes and orphanages and arts programs in areas that most did not want to go to. It made sure to respect the culture and customs of the area. It also aimed to teach kids how vast and amazing world outside their own is and empower them to do something about it. At the same time, they get to learn more about God's character and how He loves to love through us!

Since last year, my daughter has not stopped talking about the amazing life changing experience she had. As we move forward, we aim to put our family focus more towards missions and to teach our kids how to serve. So we've put together a short campaign. The outreach will take place between March 11-16, 2018 in my hometown of El Paso, Texas, one of the largest border cities in the US. Our airfare, room and board since we will arrive a day early, and outreach attendance fee will cost $2730 altogether. Some of this is due in just a few days. The outreach fee goes towards food, materials, travel within the area, etc. We have until February 25 in order to make it happen with enough time to make sure airfare costs don't go too high.
Your support has meant the world to me. You have helped me to put some practicality into my daughter's own hands when it comes to serving others. And as I have mentioned before, it has allowed her creativity to have an outlet and some amazing friends to share these passions with. We are super excited about what doors God opens next. Thank you for being a part!
In any case, we are super grateful for any support that you can give. Thank you so much for taking the time to read through this and we look forward to sharing stories, photos, and videos about what God did through this outreach for the both of us. And thank you so much for helping us get there in a short amount of time!
P.S. - There's a short promo video attached to this campaign from the King's Kids El Paso group. at about 0:35, you can see my daughter helping at a shelter for battered and abused women. Amazing!
