THE STORY:

Hello everybody!! Thank you so much for taking a look at this page :) I will try to keep this short and sweet, as my goal here is to share just a little bit about what I'm doing and to ask for your prayers and support! Back in 2001, I had the opportunity to go on a mission trip with my church to Nairobi, Kenya. While our whole purpose in going was to serve those less privileged than ourselves (which, of course, we did!), I never could have foreseen how much I would be blessed and changed as well. Ever since then, I have dreamed of returning to Africa to serve the incredible people of Kenya, and this summer just so happens to be my opportunity! From July 4th to 18th (only one month away!!) I have the opportunity to partner with Empower A Child (http://www.empowerachild.org/) in working with community outreach programs that focus on vulnerable, underprivileged children and youth in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. I will be staying with a group of international volunteers and we will be doing everything from visiting orphanages to helping children at rehabilitation centers, and ministering to people in one of the largest slums in Africa. First and foremost, I would like to ask for your prayer covering while on this trip. Prayers for health, safety, effective ministry, and the will of God to be done will all be incredibly appreciated while on this trip. Secondly, I would like to ask you to pray about donating a small amount to help me cover the costs of this trip. If (and only if) you feel led, please know that any amount, no matter how small, will be so greatly appreciated!!  The costs of round-trip flights, travel visas, immunizations, food, and living arrangements is very expensive and any gift, large or small, will help tremendously! I am so excited to have this opportunity to return to Africa to serve the people who truly helped change my life so many years ago. Thank you all so much for your prayers and support! Bethany
