Teaching in Europe

This October, I will go with a team of 50 people from my home church, Sojourn Community Church, to  southern Europe. In Europe, our team will participate in teaching nearly 50 children while their parents attend a summer training retreat. Along with numerous opportunities to teach and lead children’s activities, we will serve, encourage and interact with parents who are faithfully serving all around the world. We will also venture into the surrounding communities to engage in intentional relationship with locals. This will be my second time overseas volunteering in this capacity and I can tell you first hand that you could never imagine the impact this program has on the kids. A lot of them are having to begin to learn new communities and it is nice to see friendly faces from home. I am very passionate about teaching children, but teaching children that are immersed in different cultures has given me a thirst for learning as well.  This is by far one of the best things that I have been able to experience in my entire life.  

Will you partner with me as I go to teach these children? Please join me as I invest in God's mission. My goal is to raise $2600 by July 30th. This amount includes my travel, lodging, food, the supplies we will use when teaching, and will also provide accommodations for the families. I am looking for twenty people to give $100 and twelve people to give $50. 

If you cannot give financially, please consider partnering with me in prayer for this trip and my team. Ask God to use all of us for His kingdom and let His will overwhelm this trip. Please join us in prayer as we prepare to go, and thank you for considering this opportunity to partner by making a contribution through finances or prayer.  

“As for you, my son, be strong through the grace that is ours in union with Christ Jesus. Take the teachings that you have heard me proclaim in the presence of many witnesses, and entrust them to reliable people, who will be able to teach others also.” 2Timothy2:1-2
