¡Hola! (Hello!),
 
I hope that all is well with you! I want to start by giving you a quick snapshot of my life. I’m a junior at Radford University, where I’m double majoring in Spanish and Religious Studies; I’m also a Young Life College leader at the university. During the school year I work as a Resident Assistant, Peer Instructor for a freshman course, and have mentored students. During the summers, I have worked at Rockbridge, a Young Life Camp, and have also worked orientation. If it isn’t obvious, I truly love getting to know people, live life with them, and help them whenever possible; in each relationship, I strive to love and serve others in the same way that Jesus does.
 
This summer, I have accepted a 10 week internship at La Finca, a Vida Joven (Young Life) camp and coffee farm in Nicaragua! My main role will be translating between the Nicaraguan staff and the U.S. work teams that come to help with projects at the camp. I will be involved in the entire process: picking up the work team, working alongside them on construction projects and in the coffee fields, and finally dropping them off at the end of the week. After many weeks of work teams from all over the U.S., local Nicaraguan Vida Joven leaders will bring their friends to La Finca where they will hear about Jesus and hopefully start a relationship with Him!
 
In order for this internship to happen, I need your support! One way that you can support me is through prayer. I will be flying for the first time, and it will be both by myself and international. I will be away from home, family, and friends for the entire 10 weeks, with reduced contact. I will be working alongside many different people from many different walks of life, having to adjust to each. My Spanish skills will be truly put to the test since I will be translating all day every day, which is something that I have never done before. Finally, I am trusting the Lord to provide the needed finances to make this internship possible.
 
Another important way that you can support me is financially. I need to raise $3,000 by the end of April, which will go towards my airfare, housing, food, transportation, and any other necessary fees. I want to ask you to prayerfully consider joining my support team through a tax-deductible financial contribution. Every little bit truly helps and makes a huge difference. If 15 people gave $200, 30 people gave $100, 60 people gave $50, or 300 people gave $10 then I would be fully funded – any amount is truly appreciated! You could also consider giving a little each month until I leave!
 
Either way that you choose to support means a lot to me, and will ultimately help me in my efforts to spread the Gospel! I’m truly trusting in the Lord to provide for me, both financially and in all other areas. If you feel lead to give, then please click the red 'GIVE NOW' button to the right.

¡Hola! (Hello!),
 
            I wanted to take a quick minute to give you some updates on my upcoming internship in Nicaragua this summer! 
 
            In Nicaragua, La Finca is finalizing the other interns that I will live and work alongside this summer, as well as coordinating with U.S. work teams to finalize their trip dates. Stateside, I have been talking with Radford University to have this experience fulfill a graduation requirement, and I have also finally received my passport in the mail. I am becoming more and more busy as my departure approaches!
 
            As in all things, prayer is such an important part of what I will be doing this summer! Some ways that you can be praying are: for my Spanish, that I would continue to improve as much as possible before getting to Nicaragua; for La Finca, as the staff finalizes the other interns and the U.S. work team schedules; for those who will be at the camp this summer, that their hearts would be open to what the Lord has in store; and finally, for the Lord’s provision of the needed finances for this internship.
 
            Over the last two months, the Lord has shown up in amazing ways in my financial support raising: I am excited to say that I am officially half funded! I still need to raise $1,500 by the end of April, all of which will go towards my airfare, housing, food, transportation, and all other necessary fees. This financial support, as well as the fact that I will be unpaid during this internship, allows the camp to function and grow while also making it possible for as many Nicaraguan youth to attend as possible!
 
Would you prayerfully consider joining my financial support team? Every dollar makes a huge impact and is greatly appreciated. If 15 people gave $100 dollars, 30 people gave $50, 75 people gave $20, or 150 people gave $10 then I would be fully funded – every donation adds up as I get closer and closer to reaching my goal! Thank you for considering supporting me on this journey!
 
Saludos (Best Wishes),
Brandon Dunford
