Bolivia Mission Trip Opportunity!

Update!! Thank you so much for the support, you guys. I cannot express it enough. I raised my original goal because I was blown away by how much support I have received. So the original $800 covers the mission trip aspect, whereas after, I still need to raise another $1500 (which I am also working towards through work and side jobs). Please check out my story. Thank you so much, my friends. 


Hi friends and family! I am raising money for my very first international mission trip. Serving in this capacity has been on my heart ever since I have been a kid, but I have never taken a big step towards this (at least in terms of helping other countries). I have always had the heart to serve others and will always do so.  With this mission trip specifically, I will be able to help  repairing, renovating, and painting classrooms and other buildings within the “Famila Feliz” orphanage. This loving refuge home houses and educates ~ 80 children who have suffered extreme abuse. We will create a positive “Children’s Corner” within the two local impoverished hospitals, and possibly support a community health fair. We will also reach out and welcome residents to our first Church Service in Rurre!!! 

Going on, I am heavily considering moving overseas once I receive my teaching degree to help with mission work, so I believe this will also be a great way of seeing this lifestyle and preparing for it as well as looking for a potential new home to where I will be serving. I am at a place where I want to honor God with all I do and continue to make myself less and make God more. 

The $800 covers the actual cost of the mission trip for myself. I have THREE weeks to raise this money. I am doing my best to work when I can and am also looking for temporary jobs to put towards this as well. Once I have the $800 knocked out, I then have to raise up another $1,200 or so for my flight, but I will have a little bit more time to make this happen. God has opened this opportunity up, so I believe out of faith and hard work on my end, that this can be done and that God can use me for his will. 

Thank you so much for your donations. Please be praying as well for this trip and God doing incredible things. 

Much Love, Kyle
