Koen's Guatemala Mission Trip Fund

About me:
Hey there! My name is Koen Young, I'm 16 and I'm from Powdersville, South Carolina.
   I'm very excited about the opportunity I have to be part of a 2 week Christian mission trip to Guatemala! The trip is organized through the christian nondenominational group Adventures In Missions  out of Georgia.  I'll be traveling with 23 other high school students to Guatemala where we will be led by a long time American missionary to the area with 3 other trip leaders.
  What we will be doing?
 We will be doing sports ministries with the local Guatemalan children, working hard at service projects, and helping out at a private Christian school. I hope to be a great example of a Christian teenager to these kids and show them the joy that comes from living for Jesus.
    Please pray for me on this trip: pray for our safety, pray for my boldness to speak and teach about Jesus, and pray that the Guatemalan children and their parents will be open to hearing the Good News of Jesus Christ. 
   I only have one month to raise the $2300 I need for the trip since I leave on June 30th.  My parents have already charged all the deposits and plane fare with faith that God will provide through each of you.
Expenses:
Plane Ticket: $800
Food and Lodging: $1,500
Other activities: $100

HOW YOU CAN HELP:
 Please ask your Christian friends, families, small groups and churches if they will please pray for us June 30th through July 14th, and if they will join you in helping to be support me financially. Sharing this page through your social media would also be a great help in spreading the word.
Any donation helps and shows your care. 
Thank you and God bless you as you pray and give!
