I am writing to share about an exciting opportunity the Lord has placed before me. I will be joining a team from Austin Ridge Bible Church on a short-term mission trip to Pader, Uganda from January 7-18, 2017. We will be providing support and encouragement to the leaders at Pader Community Church, as well as leading a camp for the many kids in this community. Many of you know my heart for missions, specifically for the children in Africa. I can’t wait to head back to this community that I love and to share the Gospel with our neighbors in Uganda.
I would like to ask a couple things from you. First, would you commit to praying for my team and me? Please pray for us as we plan, prepare, and then carry out devotions and activities for the Pader leaders and kids. Pray for wisdom, guidance, discernment, patience, perseverance, and joy. Second, would you consider partnering with us financially to help cover the expenses of the trip? The total cost for me to participate in this trip is $3,500, and any financial gift is much appreciated! The hope is to raise all funds by January 1, 2017.
If you would like to send a financial gift, please click on the green "Tickets" button above and enter your donation amount. You may also send a check payable to “Austin Ridge Bible Church.” Please send your contribution to ARBC c/o Global Missions Office, 9300 Bee Cave Road, Austin, TX 78733 and put my name on a note with the check to be sure it gets to my account. Your gift will be placed toward the cost of the trip in an account under my name. All gifts are tax deductible. ARBC will send you a tax receipt.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration! I look forward to seeing how God will move, before and during this trip. He is good and gets all the glory!
