Raised : USD $ 1,600

Dear Family and Friends,
I hope this letter finds you well! No matter your circumstances, I pray that you know the peace and love of our Lord Jesus and His great care for you! 

I am collecting funds for a time-sensitive opportunity the Lord has brought to me for this summer.  I was contacted recently by a family in the Middle East about the possibility of serving with them for several weeks in July.  This is a family that was sent out from my local church, Grace Community Church, a year and a half ago to work with refugees and share good news.  I had the pleasure of being with them in a weekly community group and teaching one of their daughters in Sunday School when they were here in the States. 
This family and another family on their team are in need of childcare 3-4 days a week for their school-age children while they continue language classes.  At this point in my life, as a teacher and a single woman, I have the time and availability to help out.  Also, the Arab world has become very dear to my heart after my time in North Africa and through special relationships with Arab refugees here in Nashville.  Having lived overseas, I also know what an encouragement it can be to have visitors, and I am praying to bring a “wind of refreshment” to these dedicated servants of Jesus.  Finally, this will be an opportunity to learn from them as I go on home visits. All of this makes my heart light up with excitement!
I plan to travel July 1-25.  In order to protect the families and their ministry, I am not able to disclose the location.  However, I know I am headed to a stable country and have no need to fear!  Also, since it is a short-term trip for a special circumstance, I am not being sent out by a particular missions organization.  I am collecting funds personally and using this site as a platform to raise support.

My prayer is to share His light during this month! Thanks for considering being a part of this adventure!

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Matthew 5:16

Wow! In the first 48 hours of sharing the plan to travel, I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of God's people.  I am so encouraged by the quick response, and the willingness to pray and partner with me.  I look forward to sharing more in the coming days!
