I would like to share a piece of my heart with you. Last year, I had the unique opportunity to join a small group of mission-minded artists from my church (Downtown Hope) and participate in a Christian arts festival. This year, I'm thankful to be invited to return.
The purpose of the mission trip is to serve, make relationships, and come alongside our brothers and sisters in an oppressed country. Sometimes, we silo missions to an act of service or an individual, but our mission is whole nations. As my pastor (Joey Tomassoni) noted in a recent article he wrote for The Gospel Coalition:
"To love the world around us we must learn to listen to her art."
Our God is a Creator; and as His creation, what we create reflects Him. Art is our attempt at taking the broken, finite pieces of what we know to reflect the complete essence of that which is unknown, but infinitely greater.
I have already paid for part of my missions trip, but need to raise additional funds. I am looking for people to prayerfully sponsor me for $25, 50, $75, etc. If you would like to be a part of this mission trip to Cuba through your giving, whether that is financial or prayerful, I would greatly appreciate it! We need your prayers more than anything—prayers for both provision and protection.
Any money I raise in excess of my goal will be donated to the church and providing practical supplies to the people we are connected with there. Thank you for reading and prayerfully considering how you might be able to give!
With all joy,
