Get Kyle and Emily to Guatemala!

Hello friends and family!

In just a few weeks, Kyle and I are leaving for Guatemala! We’ll be working with Encuentro to help a church in Guatemala City with VBS and some building repairs. We’ll also hopefully be involved in some volcano cleanup efforts one of the days that we’re there.

The total cost of the trip, including air fare, lodging, etc., is about $1300 per person. We’ve already paid $860 per person ($1720 total), covering registration, outings, etc. but we’re still $880 short of our total goal, which would cover our flights.

Please please please consider helping us out! This’ll be our first mission trip with Kailua Church of the Nazarene, and as a married couple. (It’ll also be Kyle’s 2nd time ever leaving the country.) While it’s an awesome opportunity to assist churches in need, it’s also a chance for us to expand our knowledge of what it means to be a part of the church, and to grow as a Kaila Nazarene ministry team.

Any little bit helps! We’re also accepting as much prayer and well-wishing as you have to offer (: Thanks!

The money raised will go toward the trip cost: registration with Encuentro (the organization the trip is through), airfare, hotel/lodging, food, excursions, building materials, VBS materials, etc.

4. (Your withdrawal plan to get the funds from the campaign to the ultimate beneficiary/ies)
The money will be withdrawn into our bank account, we’ll write a check to Kailua Church of the Nazarene, they’ll deposit it into their missionary fund, and they’ll wire the money to Encuentro.
