This February Sharee & I have the opportunity to travel to the Holy Land to be a part of an 11 day mission trip with Georgian and Winnie Banov, and their ministry, Global Celebration. During our time there, we will minister to the local refugee camp, bringing love and joy to the families and children there. We will also get to visit wounded soldiers in Tel Aviv and bring food packages to the widows, whose families have been torn apart by war. we believe that God has a plan for us to go and be a part of what he is doing amongst these beautiful people.
Global Celebration (a 501(c)3 non-profit organization), founded by Georgian and Winnie Banov, travels the world spreading the love of God to many of the poorest people on earth, as well as ministering in local U.S. churches. Some of their recent missions have included Bulgaria, Africa, Asia and Nicaragua. We believe we are being called by the Lord to go to Israel this year to pour out His love to the hungry and hurting, and are responding by faith. Evangelistic mission trips cost money and require lots of prayer. Would you please take a moment and ask God if He would like you to be a part of this trip as well by supporting us either financially, prayerfully, or both? A love gift of any size will help, as the trip will cost approximately $7390 for both of us. If you are a frequent flyer and have extra miles, we also are in need of a domestic round-trip flight from Eugene to New York.
Thank you so much for your prayerful consideration. Any support, great or small, will enable us to share the love of Christ in an otherwise spiritually dark part of the world. We pray your heart will be moved to pray for the people of the Middle East.
Matthew 25:34-40 "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me:I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me!"
Love in Christ,
Richie & Sharee Powell
