South Africa Missions Trip 2

Hi everyone, 
As many of you may, or may not know, I have been a volunteer supervisor with the The Father’s Heart Ministries, I  have gone through their ministry training, and serve weekly in their programs. The Father’s Heart  is sending a team of volunteers to South Africa in February.  We are planning a 10 day trip to serve in the various ministries there.

We have been invited by First City Baptist Church in East London, South Africa to join them in serving the people of their region.  Our outreaches will be to those discarded by society and beaten down by poverty, abuse, and hunger. Previous teams have ministered to the homeless, to sex workers, rape victims, orphans, and those suffering with AIDS.

We will have the opportunity to go into the most impoverished and needy communities to offer hope, encouragement and whatever resources we can.

We have also been invited to spend time at Hope School, a school established for children infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. Many of these children are orphans, and have already experienced the trauma of loss, violence and rape. The school is a place of safety, a place where they are fed, and offered a way to break the cycle of poverty and death they live in.  

In truth, much of what we will be doing in South Africa,  we already do in NYC at The Father’s Heart. However, here at home we are comfortable and experienced, and good at what we do.  This trip provides an opportunity for us to serve outside our comfort zones and beyond our current horizons. We believe God loves all people, and God heals. These beliefs will be tested in the face of children and a community ravaged by AIDS, hunger and broken by suffering. The Father’s heart does not reside in NYC, or in any one place, but within us, His children. Please consider helping me, bring His heart to South Africa.

My fundraising goal is $2,000 that will cover basic expenses of the trip such as airfare, food and lodging.  Anything we raise above that will help enable our team to leave a meaningful gift with the ministries in East London.

Thank you so much for your consideration.
