We want to introduce you to Anthony, our 13 year-old son. He has decided to join Teen Missions this year to go to Cameroon, Africa, to participate in a soccer outreach to children there.
He is currently an 8th grader, loves football, soccer, and rugby. He is one of those young men who walk with open arms to others. He doesn't know a stranger, and makes all who meet him feel welcome. He's a popular "older boy" on our street. The young boys are always looking for him to come throw a ball, or teach them to skateboard.
We're excited for his faith. We would love for you to pray for him, his fundraising, spiritual maturity, fears, boldness, and protection. If you are able to help this dream come to fruition, he and we'd love for you to partner with him.
The Cameroon trip costs are over$4600. We've raised about half of that expense.
This is a huge act of faith and sacrifice for Anthony. He will be in Africa for about 7 weeks this summer plus training and debriefing. He leaves June 17th and doesn't return until August 13th. He is giving up a summer of Football conditioning, leading into his High School career, as well as the first few weeks of the football season. He will miss the first 2weeks of school, which means he will sacrifice his academic schedule, since we will have to withdraw him and re-enroll in order for him to attend the local high school. Not to mention the expense of a new passport, work boots, and dress clothes for ministry (he prefers to wear athletic shorts - even to church - LOL).
Will you help us reach this goal? If he has a total of 30 ppl donate $100, the goal is met. But even if a gift is $10, it gets us closer to being able to send him off!
Deadline: May 15th
Donations can be received later, but the organization wants all of the funds specifically given to Anthony to be there in May. <iframe media_type="0" media_id="FUjXX6pSO6s" class="youtube-replace" title="YouTube video player" style="margin-bottom:20px;width:560px;height:315px;" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/FUjXX6pSO6s/?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="1"></iframe>
Thanks so much for your investment in our son. If you want this to be tax deductible, contact us and we'll let you know how it can be done.
