I am preparing to make my third mission trip to serve our partners in Tijuana, Mexico. This year I am taking my 9 year old brother Jude to see and experience why I love our partners and the people in Mexico!
JUST A FEW WEEKS AWAY... In a day and age of accumulation and consumerism, Kim and I have made a concerted effort to provide our boys with experiences rather than just things. I so want them to recognize by the world’s standards that we are “rich” in so many ways. But most of all, for them to connect what they have been given to those who are in need locally and globally. I love that our church, Fellowship Church Knoxville, is committed to long term relationships with our partners at the Tijuana Christian Mission. Just that critical fact changes the nature of a trip, we go to continue to build relationships, and work alongside their hopes and dreams for their community.
Elijah and I are especially excited this summer to take Jude (my 9 year old) along with us on his first mission trip. He has watched Eli come home renewed and reoriented. This year Jude will have the opportunity to experience something that simply can not be captured by hearing the stories or swiping through the photos from Tijuana. As a Father, I can not wait to watch him connect with the people and his heart shaped and perspective broadened by a world he has yet to experience.
The funds we raise will go directly toward airfare, lodging, food, transportation, supplies, materials and interpreters for our trip July 8-15. Having the funds to be able to go is important, but we simply want you to be a part of our trip by praying for our team and giving if you are prompted to do so. We would be grateful for any amount ($10, $20, $50...) you choose to give. Our hope is to raise $1750 for the 3 of us with any remaining money to go directly to the orphanage. Thank you for being a part.
