Spring Break Medical Mission Trip to Ecuador!

My dearest friends and family, 

I am so humbled to announce that I am blessed with the opportunity to serve on mission this coming Spring Break! I will be going to Ecuador with a team from my college, Franciscan University, to serve the poor and vulnerable in remote areas of this country. It is both a medical and spiritual mission, as we will be traveling to areas of Ecuador where residents do not have medical treatment readily available to them. I am so honored to have the chance to encounter hearts both physically and spiritually, who are in need of care, comfort, and love. 

Being a senior nursing student, I feel this mission perfectly encapsulates how my heart is called to serve- amongst my poor brothers and sisters, using not only my nursing education and medical competence, but also the maternal and spiritual aspect of my heart that lays within my femininity and love for Christ. I am humbly asking for your help in my service for this mission! 

All of the funds and donations that we collect goes directly to serving the people of Ecuador, which includes providing the materials and medications necessary to give them the treatment that they need, as well as the means to get there. We do not collect any funds from this as team members, it is fully in support of the people of Ecuador that we will be serving. 

Your donations allow us to bring a team of students as well as a team of medical professionals to make this mission successful and possible. 

Due to the current circumstances of the pandemic we are faced with, we are hopeful this mission will happen come March, however all donations are fully refundable knowing there is chance of cancellation due to COVID-19. I also recognize the difficulty this pandemic has brought among many of your dear hearts, and if a money donation is not possible right now, I would be so grateful for you to join me in prayer for this mission trip, and to have the gift to offer prayers for you! Please let me know how I can pray for you in preparation for my mission time; it is always helpful to have motivation to grow closer to Christ through the hearts of those whom I love. 

I am extremely humbled, and SO grateful for anything you are inclined to give; here are 3 ways you can help: 
1) Pray for our team and those we will be serving
2) Donate financially to this cause by whatever you are able to give
3) Share this fundraiser with friends and family who can contribute through prayers and donations as well.
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for taking the time to give this a read, and thank you for any way that you are able to contribute and support our team! 

"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4- 10
