Send Leah on a Medical Mission Trip

I am raising funds to go on a week long medical mission trip to the Dominican Republic this December. I will be joining a team from the Underground Skatepark to minister to the people in and around the towns of Barahona and Pedernales.
     The purpose of this trip is to share Jesus in word and action. We will be providing free basic medical clinics in churches and schools.  Since I am an RN, I will be functioning as one of the providers.  We will see approximately 150-175 patients per day, mostly women with children and elderly patients. We will also be distributing shoes and clothing at the medical clinics. In addition, our team is planning to assist in the construction of two homes. These are not homes by our standards, but they are homes to the Dominican people. They are about the size of a large utility shed. Lastly, our team is planning to sponsor a children’s festival that they call “Thanksgiving Christmas”. The church buses in approximately 600 children and feeds them a meal they would never be able to have.  
     I am humbly asking for financial support as well as prayers for a safe journey. Any amount that you feel led to give is so helpful.  The funds will be used for travel expenses relating to food, housing, translator fees, transportation, and some lost work hours.  Thank you so much in advance for your support!
