Mission Trip to Latvia

I am writing to tell you about an amazing opportunity that I have been given to serve the Lord on a mission trip to minister to orphan children in Latvia from July 24th thru August 3rd. I will be traveling with an organization called Orphan Outreach that is committed to serving orphans and children at risk around the world. You can learn more about the ministry of Orphan Outreach on their website at Orphan Outreach.

As a mission trip participant, I will minister to orphan children by helping lead an evangelistic VBS-type event and by providing school supplies and backpacks. One of the goals is to meet the physical needs of the children "” offering a safe, clean and warm environment, where the children can come and rest after a long day at school or find refuge and comfort when their parents have left them alone to wander the streets. When spending time with the children, our main purpose is to minister to their needs by building relationships to show each child that he or she is loved unconditionally and is special in the eyes of our heavenly Father. I can't do this on my own. I need the support of friends and family in my life to make this happen. I am thankful for your influence in my life and would love for you to be a part of this mission trip with me. One of the ways you can help me is to pray for the ministry we will perform and for me personally. Please pray that all work would be done according to God's will and for His glory. Also pray for the children we will serve, for unity among my team, and for the details of our travel and itinerary. I would also appreciate any financial support you can give. The cost of the trip is around $3,000, which includes airfare, food, bottled water, lodging, insurance, interpreters, transportation, etc. 

I pray that my team will be God's faithful servants on this trip and hope that you will prayerfully consider joining me through your prayers and/or financial support. Thank you in advance for all of your help. May God bless you richly as you consider your involvement in this mission trip!

In Christ,
