Wassup!

   Hope all has been good with you. This GoFundMe page is to inform you about what God has been doing in this new season of my life! I began to ask God to push me out of my comfort zone lately and He has been answering my prayers! I have been in full time outreach and mission work for 8 years now. God has put it on my heart to start to duplicate my self in other people in order to multiply the vision of CityTakers all across the United States literally.

   My journey on the mission God has called me to started in 2006 when I was invited to Budapest Hungry to use my gifts and talents to Rap and teach workshops at a music festival. That was my first mission trip experience and I have to say it changed my life. Here we are 8 years later and I want to give my team the same experience in order to recreate myself in them and transform them more into the image of Christ. This is what we are called to do as Christians is to make disciples! I have a team of about 12 people and will be taking at least 5 of them on a mission trip to Kenya Africa where we will be doing outreach in the slums, prisons, communities and also hosting two HUGE outdoor crusade/concerts where thousands of young people will here the Gospel message.

   They have been inviting me for years now saying there is a huge disconnect between the church and the young people. I finally agreed to come! We will be flying into Nairobi Kenya Aug 20th 2014 and staying for 10 days. The young people in Kenya are really excited about Rap music from the US coming over there, they said to expect thousands of people to show up at every show we put on.

   We right now have 3 events lined up plus tons of outreach, mission projects and youth services. My prayer is that all the people we touch will come to know the transforming Love of Christ that I have experienced, and in doing that my life and the CityTakers team’s will be transformed as well.

    This mission is costing $2500 per person. That will cover airfare, transportation in country, room and board plus we have to hire personal security for this trip due to some of the places we will be traveling. I have to raise enough for two people personally and any extra that I raise will go toward another person on my team going.

   I am also writing to you to ask you if you will partner with me in this GREAT GOD opportunity in my life and help by investment into what God is doing!

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."

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

I have some amazing supporters, friends and family! I just wanted to tell everyone THANK YOU for all the love and support as we are only 3 days away from embarking on our mission to Kenya Africa.

Please keep us all in your prayers over the next few weeks. I will do my best to keep everyone updated via social media as much as possible. Please follow me @iamscottfree on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

We have a few of the team members who are still short a little financially. So as the leader I am taking it upon myself to ask if you might consider helping them raise about $500 that will go towards helping a few of the others complete their funding.

Thanks again! We are excited to see all that God will do!

We will be hosting a "CityTakers Africa Send Off" party this Friday at 7:30pm. We would like to invite everyone out who is in or near the Atlanta area.

I am attaching the flyer with all the info.

Hope to see you there!

Also would you consider keeping us in prayer as we are in country?

Wow almost there! Only $365 away from completing this race then off to Kenya Africa with the CityTakers mission!

Would you pray about helping me finish this race today? I beleive that we can be completely funded by the end of today in Jesus name!

If you can't give or already have given would you continue to help by praying for me and the mission team?

Thank you again for taking the time just to read this. You are appreciated more than you know.
