City Takers: Kenya Missions Trip

Jonathan Montgomery  DULUTH, GA
I have been serving with an Urban Missionary Ministry named “City Takers” for nearly 2 years now and God has done great things in this ministry, above and beyond anything that I could ever imagine. God has placed on my heart to use my gifts of Speaking, Drumming, and even Hip-Hop to show the Love of Christ to people through evangelism and outreach in the city of Atlanta. Seeing God use me to impact people’s lives for His glory has been humbling while at the same time truly a blessed experience. The best part of it all is that The Lord has said Atlanta is not City Takers’ only stop!

I have been given an amazing opportunity to serve God in Kenya Africa this August and use my gifts and talents to advance the Kingdom of God through mission projects, evangelical crusade style concerts and youth services. My prayer is that all the people we touch will come to know the transforming Love of Jesus Christ that I have experienced, and in doing that my life will be transformed as well.

I asked Him to use me in new ways and He answered with this opportunity! John 15:7(ESV) says, "If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you." I decided to make myself available to whatever ways He would work through me. I am ready to step out of my comfort zone to do His will and positively influence lives.

Our trip will be from August 20th-30th. It’s only costing me $2,500 total to go. I believe God for that plus some! I am also writing to you to ask you if you will partner with me in this amazing opportunity in my life and equally if not more, amazing opportunity to spread the Love of Christ to those who are hurting and in need of God’s help. I ask that you help by investing into what God is doing!

Please give whatever you can as I need to raise most of the money ASAP in order to go. Thank you ahead of time for your financial support and your prayers.

If you are not a person that is big on the web/digital way of doing things, donations can also be accepted in the form of cash or a check made out to City Takers and writing “Jonathan Montgomery” in the Memo. All checks must be written in this manner for donations to be tax deductible. 

Thank you all for your love, support, and prayers! 
God Bless!

YOOOOOOO guess what? We did it!!! I'm now up to $3,080 toward my trip to KENYA, AFRICA!!!! We're not quite done yet though! I still another $80 dollars to cover fees for "gofundme". I ask that you would please pray and if the Lord impresses on your heart that you would give, and like I said before I don't want to just MEET my goal I want to BEAT it! I believe that God is able to do anything no matter how daunting the task!! I know he can exceed my expectation, so I'm not gonna set any limitations!!! God is able and I have faith that he will deliver. So for anyone that is seeing this do not hesitate to join me in believing God for the impossible! We fly out tomorrow at 8pm so lets make this last day and a half count!!! I also would like to thank everyone that has supported me on this trip so far; donations, prayers, words of faith and wisdom! You see, We're not just City Takers, we're World Takers!!!! So let's take it!

YOOOOOOOO TOMORROW IS THE DAY!!! That's right I leave for Kenya, Africa tomorrow! I still EVERYBODY'S help tho! I'm up to $2,460 and need to get to $3,000! I'm just $540 away so let's make it happen! I know you might thinking, "why is he still pushing so hard the day before?" The reason if because City Takers had been blessed with chance to minister in Portland, Oregon immediately after our missions trip to Kenya has completed. Therefore we are flying directly from Kenya to Portland and the flight and baggage fees result in the need for another $500 added to the initial goal. I believe that God is able to do anything no matter how daunting the task!! I know he can exceed my expectation, so I'm not gonna set any limitations!!! God is able and I have faith that he will deliver. I'll be really honest with you too I don't want to just MEET my goal, I want BEAT my goal!!! So for anyone that is seeing this do not hesitate to join me in believing God for the impossible! I ask that you would please pray and if the Lord impresses on your heart that you would give. Lets make these last days count!!! I also would like to thank everyone that has supported me on this trip so far; donations, prayers, words of faith and wisdom!

I know you might thinking, "why would he change it so close to the departure date?" Well the answer is simple, I believe that God is able to do anything no matter how daunting the task!! I know he can exceed my expectation, so I'm not gonna set any limitations!!! God is able and I have faith that he will deliver. I'll be really honest with you too I don't want to just MEET my goal, I want BEAT my goal!!! So for anyone that is seeing this do not hesitate to join me in believing God for the impossible!
