BENEFITING: CHINESE CHRISTIAN CHURCH
EVENT DATE: Jul 07, 2013
We felt God calling us to serve beyond Philadelphia. He opened the doors for us to go with a team from our church to Alaska in early July. As a part of the Youth Missions Team (YMT), we will be visiting and serving at a Native American Indian Bible Conference. We, along with four other people (including our pastor), will be reaching out to approximately 20 high school students in Glennallen, Alaska. Many families in this area are broken, and struggle with drug abuse, alcoholism, gambling, and divorce. Suicide rates are high and good role models are hard to find. We hope to really get to know and love these youths, and serve as good examples of Christians living out their faith in the world to them.
Our team will be leading small groups, worship, skits, all while incorporating the stories of Daniel - specifically his faithfulness to God in the midst of living under Babylonian rule - into the program that we are planning for these youths.
We need to raise $3600 for this missions trip by July 7th, and we hope that you will partner with us financially! More importantly, we hope that you will partner with us prayerfully:
1) Pray that God will use this opportunity to impact the community in Alaska, the youths there, ourselves, and all those uniting with us and sharing in our vision on this mission trip
2) Pray that God’s healing hands will be on those hurt and lost in Alaska - that they will come to know Christ, that their families will be healed, and that they will depend on God through the hardships - especially the youths we will be directly serving
3) Pray that our team will trust in God, that our hearts will be softened to how God wants us to move, and that we will not be disheartened by the logistics but embrace the opportunity with joy
If you have any questions, please let us know! We would love to catch up with you.
By His grace and for His glory,
Bao & Sharon Nguyen
