Help us go to the Middle East!

Hi friends + family all over!

We (Lisanna from Estonia and Kevin from the States) are getting married this fall and in regards to that, we are trying to work out what to do with our lives after.

Both of us have a passion to help the people of Syria with any means we can. Kevin has worked with refugees in Norway and in Turkey and Lisanna in Norway, Estonia and in Lebanon.  Since both of us have refugee work heavy on our hearts, we are planning to go to Lebanon for a short mission trip - to expand our contacts, visit families that Lisanna connected with on her trip there last year and to keep the fire burning. We don't want to lose our compassion or desire to help. 

On this trip we will work with a school set up for Syrian kids that has about 150 children in attendance, 6 grades and two kindergarten groups. This school provides education for children that otherwise might have no chance for one since it is difficult for Syrian kids to get into Lebanese schools.  We will most likely help with giving daily devotions and be teacher's aids in the classes.

We are also hoping to take part in the on-going housevisits, food contribution and church planting.

The dates for the trip are as of now April 22nd until May 15th. After this Kevin will go to the States for work and the wedding planning will go into full swing.

Since we are planning a wedding and a mission trip at the same time, all the funds for going to Lebanon will have to be fundraised.
The goal amount (12 000kr - about 1500USD and 1200€) will cover plane tickets, lodging, food and any emergency expenses for both of us. 

We have not been on a mission trip (or even a plane together) at this point so going on this trip will mean that we get to practice being in missions as a couple, dream about our life together and see if we could consider moving to the Middle-East/working with refugees long-term.

This will not be possible without your help! Please consider supporting us in prayer or finances. We would be so very grateful for any little that goes towards this trip! 

Thank you for reading!

PS! If you would rather send us money directly (between us we have American, Norwegian and Estonian bank accounts) please contact us on Facebook or by e-mail at
