Hey everyone! I wanted to update and thank those who donated towards my mission trip. It was an amazing experience and I couldn’t have done it without you. Our team from SouthCrest Church traveled across the big pond to Stockton-on-Tees Valley, located in Northern England. Here we got to participate with UK-USA Ministries, an organization that works to reach the unbelieving and uncommitted people of the United Kingdom.
Each day, our team went to St. John’s Primary School where we were able to interact and share the gospel with children. We spent one on one time with the kids, planted gardens, and even got to hold an assembly that shared a story from the Bible. We also assisted local residents with yard work and planted a new garden in the town’s community center. In the afternoons, our team participated in “Camp of Champs,” where we facilitated a sports camp for the children. Here we held team talks where we shared the gospel and allowed the children to engage with the group leaders.
Throughout the trip, our team worked hard to share Jesus with these children as well as the local residents. By the end of the trip, 48 children and adults accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! It was incredible to see how God worked through our team not only to bring these people to Christ, but to also help each and every one of us grow spiritually.
I want to thank those again who partnered with me on this mission trip. If it weren’t for your donations and prayers, I would not have been able to go in the first place. That’s why I’m so excited to share some great news! As a result of this trip, I feel God is calling me back to England. There is a tremendous need for long-term Christian ministry there and I have decided to participate in UK-USA Ministry’s Gap Year Program. In order to go for the year, I need to raise $10,000 to cover living and traveling costs. I know this may sound like a lot, but I am confident that God will provide again. Even if you cannot donate at this time, I ask that you please pray that I am able to raise the funds for the year in order to continue to share the gospel with these communities in England. Any donation makes a huge difference! I plan to be back in England on September 1st, 2017 and need $3800 for initial costs by that date. Monthly donation commitments would also be a huge help, as they would support me throughout the year. If you are able to commit to donating monthly, please feel free to contact me at 262-909-3427.
Thank you so much,
