Cristina Nina Here :)
I am blessed to embark on an exciting personal adventure, where I will be doing a Mission Trip for nine months starting in October this year. It is part of the Emmanuel School of Mission (ESM) where I will be participating in a compassion outreach to the poor communities in the South of Bronx, New York. But I am hoping to get some help getting/ while over there.
I have always felt the desire to do a Mission Trip and about a month ago I stumbled upon this opportunity. Super random but also a life changing choice where I am trying to trust in God. Fast forward and I have quit my job and getting ready to head off to have some quality time with Our Lord.
This Mission School is based on 4 pillars~
1).Spiritual Life: Daily Mass, adoration and retreats.
2). Intellectual Formation: Classes in Scripture, Theology, Philosophy, Apologetics, Sacraments, Moral Theology, Anthropology, Marriage and Family, Church history and more.
3). Community Life: Living with people of different nationalities.
4). Mission Work: Including evangelisation in schools, pubs, parishes and even on the streets. We also meet the poor and homeless of NYC and do work with the Missionary Sisters of Charity.
I know that God has a hold of my heart and I believe that this is an opportunity to really strengthen my faith and rekindle my love for the Church.
I ask first and foremost that you please keep me in your prayers. Further to this, the cost of ESM New York is $20,000, which includes all living expenses, retreats, mission trips and World Youth Day 2019.
I would be absolutely super appreciative and grateful for any donations of any size to my mission. Whether this be a once off donation or an ongoing donation for the nine months that I am over there.
Please don’t be afraid to send me any prayer intentions you may have (whether you’re able to fund me or not).
Thank you for your generosity and support!
Hope you have a wonderful nine + months. :D
