Here's the deal: A couple of months ago, the juniors among us really felt burdened to go on a mission trip "in our own backyard", in Panama. As a class, they could never come to a consensus about where to go or what to do. That is why it was so timely when the school sent us an email regarding an opportunity to serve people in our home country of Panama. There were meetings, interviews, and brainstorming. At first there were 24 students... and then there were 7! We are all PUMPED to be able to go minister to a group of children, youth, and adults in the mountains of Volcan, Chiriqui on March 26-30th.
We were given the responsibility to plan, and carry out this mission trip "on our own". While there has been a lot of adult guidance (Nathan, Esther, and Tina), this is our charge. Throughout the course of the week, Trinity will be heading up our music department, Pepper, Jonathan, and Michael will be giving their testimonies to other young men, Paulina is in charge of skits, Daniela has crafts and Avery is making sure it all goes down as planned! As you can see, God has put together a unique team to minister to these people in Volcan. We are all amped about the opportunity The Lord has given us, and we need you to partner with us!
There are one of two ways that you can do this, most importantly, we need you to pray for us. The omnipotent God of the universe hears our prayers, and we have confidence in his goodness and love for his children. Another way you can partner with us is by supporting us financially. The total cost of the trip, for all 10 of us, comes out to about $3,500. This may seem like a lot of money, but we serve a powerful God, and nothing is impossible for Him. Every one of your donations counts. Thank you for partnering with us, and sharing our burden for the people in Volcan. God bless! =)
When you pray for us please keep this in mind:
"Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should." (Ephesians 6:19, 20 NIV)
