Missions Trip to Berlin, Germany!!

Campaign Created by: Rebekah Dyckerhoff

Goal: USD $3,000
Raised: USD $ 3,200
Hello! My name is Rebekah, I am a 23 year old Canadian who is passionate about travelling and reaching the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I have been on several missions trips - Belize, Guatemala, and most recently Uganda, but this will be my first missions trip to a developed nation such as Germany.

Being from a German heritage and having visited Germany on several occasions, I am familar with their culture and language and have a heart to reach their nation with light and hope. Due to the recent influx of Syrian refugees, there is a huge opportunity to reach muslims with the truth of the gospel, in addition to reaching the German people. The door is wide open as muslims whose countries have been locked to missionaries, are now coming to Europe and being exposed to Christianity and the Christian bible. They are hungry for true freedom!

I am partnering with an organization called European Initiative (EI) through their summer program, entitled Surge. EI's mission is to mobilize thousands of Christians to ignite a spiritual awakening in Europe. SURGE is a 30-day summer missions intensive, based in Berlin, Germany. It is for high energy, Jesus-loving 18-28 year old adults who have a passion to know God and make Him known. The SURGE program basically consists of two parts: discipleship and outreach. Please click on the campagn link to watch a short video explaining what SURGE is all about! 

A typical day of ministry would begin with a team devotional, then going out to the streets to perform skits depicting the gospel. These are intended to draw a crowd, so after the skits are done we can go out and talk to people about what Holy Spirit may have been speaking to them through it. In the afternoon we might go to a refugee camp to play soccer with the kids, share the gospel, and eat a meal. There will also be an outrip from Germany to a nearby country in Europe (TBD), which I am super stoked about!

My goal is to fundraise $2000 to cover living expenses - food and accommodation - for the month. I firmly believe that this trip will be making a significiant difference in the lives of people we reach, as well as in my own personal life. You may not know me personally, but maybe you believe in the same mission as me. I would ask you to consider contributing what God puts on your heart, and sowing into Europe! Your donation and support is extremely appreciated.

If you are unable to help financially, I understand. I would ask that you consider sharing this GiveSendGo campaign with others in your circle that may have the resources to help. I would also ask for spiritual support through prayer; I know the power of having a community come together to pray for a cause.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read through this, you are amazing. I will be posting updates here, so stay in touch. Excited to see what God does in bringing together the finances for this trip!
