Missionary family needs Sabbatical

We are the Shannons and we run Empowerment Advocates International.(www.EAIpower.org)

We help poor children in Cambodia and Madagascar have a better life and to know God through the childrens centers that we run in these two countries. 

We have been on the mission field for 5 years and we are really in need of a sabatical break. 

We are trying to raise money for airfaire to travel from Madagagascar to the USA wich will cost us about $11,000 and another $5,000 for our living expenses for our time in the USA which will be around 4 months.  We would like to visit family and friends and see nice places like the Grand Canyon and places like that. 

This time will help us refresh, to be together as a family and to be ready to give our all for another 5 years on the mission field when we return. 

We would be over joyed and so thankful to anyone who could help us raise this money to go on this sabatical. 

Thank you for your consideration. 

God Bless, 

The Shannons
