Dear Friends and Family,
This summer I have an opportunity to travel to Pokhara, Nepal. As some of you may know, it has been on my heart serve overseas and I finally have the chance to do so. This spring I am graduating from high school. I was home schooled through eleventh grade and this year I have been enrolled in classes through the early college program at Northern Essex Community College. I’m undecided about next steps for my life but ultimately, I know that God has a plan for me. I hope this trip will provide a better understanding of it.
In the past, I babysat for a family who now manages a guest house in the city of Pokhara, close to the Himalayas and Phewa Lake. I am preparing to visit them from June through August to serve alongside them in their home and in the community. This includes providing child care to my host family, helping with guest house chores, teaching swim lessons to a local group of children, and interacting with the native people as opportunities arise.
As you can imagine, a trip like this is expensive. If you can support me in a financial way, I would be very grateful. While money is important, it comes in a distant second to my need for prayers.
My desire is to serve others and I am open to whatever God has planned for my days in Southeast Asia.
I'm excited about this opportunity and the experiences that lie ahead.
Thank you in advance for your prayers, encouragement and financial support.
