It is with great excitement that we want to let you know about an opportunity for you to partner with Faith, Jaeden, Kristian & myself as we prepare for a Missions Trip this summer. Faith & Jaeden were selected again this year to join an extensive discipleship training program at our church. The program is called P.E.A.K. (Putting Everything Aside for the King) which is open to children 10-12 years old. As a third year member, Faith had to go through auditions and try out to be on the team. She had to give her personal testimony, dance, act, sing and go through an interview. As a first year newbie, Jaeden had to do the same. You see, it's a pretty big deal:although 30-40 kids try out, only 12-15 kids get chosen each year. They were both so excited when they got the call that they had both made the 2013 team!!!
Being on the P.E.A.K. Team means a huge commitment, they spend 4-5 hours every Sunday afternoon at practice/ministry training and about an hour a day doing their devotions, scripture memorization and bible reading. The program runs from Jan-Oct and it takes a lot of stamina to learn all the dances and dramas but they love it! We started training this month and will start localized ministry in a few months BUT the highlight of the year is our Missions Trip. This year we are headed to Guatemala. We will be visiting some orphanages, villages and doing street ministry too! Our ministry days will be action packed from morning to evening:8-10 hours days! Last year was such an amazingly incredible trip and we saw many miracles happen and countless lives changed...each child became an instrument that God used to minister to the broken.
This year, Kristian is once again serving as a counselor for the boys team. We each need to raise approx. $2000 to cover expenses. That's a total of about $8000...that scares the mess out of me! But I am trusting and believing God!!! For the past two years we have seen God faithfully provide as each of you generously gave to help us on our journey. This year we are confident He will do the same and we are super excited to see what He is going to do on this trip!
If you believe in making a difference in the lives of others please consider partnering with us to help make this trip possible. Your donation is making it possible for us to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those hurting and searching for Him! I am asking you to prayerfully consider supporting us this year.
I will be blogging about the trip again this year as we walk out this journey so that you can follow along from the comfort of your own home. I will be updating as things happen between now and the time we leave, as well as while we are on the trip. You can follow us online at www.faithonamission.blogspot.com
Please keep us in your prayers both before and during our trip. We are asking for prayer specifically as we will again be starting a 21 day fast before the trip. We are asking that you pray for safety during our travel, for souls to be saved and lives to be touched, for God to be made real to people and for good health for our entire team. We would be honored should you choose to participate. If you have any questions please let me know:I cannot thank you enough for prayerfully considering partnering with us on this journey!
Blessings:Kristian, Angel, Faith & Jaeden Kennedy
