Good Afternoon,
Thank you so much for your generous donation for Aubrey missions trip to the DR. As you know, the trip didn’t happen in April and we’re not sure it’ll happen next year. It’s all up in the air. Aubrey is intending to go on a missions trip as soon as she’s able to. Whether it’s this one or a different one that is potentially happening in April 2021. My question for you is how she should handle your donation:
Option 1 - we will put the money into a savings account specifically to be used in the future for a missions trip.
Option 2 - we can send you a refund
Option 3 - if you were specifically interested in the money being used for GO Ministries in the DR, we can send them a check for the amount you had initially donated.
Any of these options are great and we’ll happily comply. If we don’t hear back then the money will be put into a future missions trip savings account.
Thank you so much!
Jillian 



    Happy holidays! I am writing this letter to inform you of an exciting opportunity I have with my church to work with GO Ministries in the Dominican Republic. There we will work with the local leaders developing churches, ministries, and working with children. This will be my first mission trip and I am so excited to go!
If you have not heard about GO Ministries, they are a Christian non-profit organization.  GO is “dedicated to the vision of redeeming people, renewing communities and restoring creation through working alongside local leaders creating opportunities for partnership through mutual transformation”.  If you want to learn more you can check out www.gomin.org.
While I am there I am most looking forward to working with children!  We are hoping to use some of the money we raise to purchase sports supplies and toys. I will also be working alongside our team on other building and painting projects as well. We will be going the last week of April (I will be there for my 13th birthday!)
Will you consider supporting me financially?  I need to raise $1400 to cover the cost of my trip and all supplies we will be using for projects while we are there.  Any amount will be greatly appreciated!
There are three ways you can donate to my trip:
You can mail a check to:
Life Church, 150 Dow St, Manchester NH 03101. Checks can be made payable to Life Church and you will receive a mailed receipt for your donation in January. Please write DR on the memo line.
If you would prefer to donate online you can use our church website www.mylifechurch.com/givecontact. Please choose the DR missions trip option and note my name in the memo line. If you want to use your phone you can text GIVE to 603.222.9075 and you’ll be texted the link to donate.
You can also donate on this "give send go" page. 
I do not expect to just be handed donations without doing my part, so I will be working to earn the money to go as well.  I am happy to babysit if that would be helpful to you or if you know of anyone looking for childcare, I have a lot of experience working with kids at church and have been working as a mother’s helper weekly. I will also be hand painting bookmarks as a thank you gift for those who donate $20 or more to my trip, expect that to come in the New Year! Our team will also be putting on other fundraisers, we are still working out the details!
Thank you for considering supporting my upcoming trip.  Have a great Christmas,
