My name is Catherine Briggs, and I am a student leader at Red Rocks Youth Evergreen in Colorado. This summer, I have the amazing opportunity to join my Red Rocks Youth family on my first out-of-country missions trip. We will be going to a small village outside of Kigali, Rwanda and working with an organization called Hope Haven Rwanda.
Hope Haven is a Christian non-profit that offers families living in this impoverished area schooling, food, and most important, safety. Hope Haven was started in 2012 and it now educates 420 children. Their work is making a huge difference, and this is why I am so excited to be part of this amazing journey!
While we are there we will be working with the school that is run by Hope Haven. During the day we will be doing service projects that include working in the garden, helping the teachers, interacting with the students, and much more. Every night we will have devotionals as well as time to connect with the people we're traveling with and with God. I believe that even though we don't share a culture, language or history with the people of Rwanda, we share the love of God, and that connects us like family.
To make this trip possible, I need both financial and spiritual support. The cost of this trip is $3,200.00. My goal is to fundraise as much as possible, but I do have some money from my after-school job that will help cover some costs. Would you consider sponsoring me financially, even for a small amount? Prayer support and protection is the other vital part of my request, and I would really appreciate your commitment to pray for me now and throughout the trip. And, if you give me your email address, I will send you some updates and requests as we get closer to July.
Some important dates to keep in mind:
‐ February 28: first $1,000 due
‐ April 8: next $1,000 due
‐ June 24: final full $3,200 due
‐ July 19-30: traveling / working at Hope Haven Rwanda

Thank you very much for considering my requests. God bless!
