THE STORY:

I am excited to announce that I will be working with an organization called 4 Christ Missions (4CM www.4christmission.org) and will be joining them this June on a mission trip to Bolivia. For three years 4CM has partnered with local churches in Bolivia evangelizing, holding children’s ministries, and working with doctors and dentists to provide basic medical care. 4CM has worked with local churches to proclaim the Good News on the streets of Bolivia. God has worked powerfully empowering these teams to care and pray for the sick wherever they go.

The love I want to share in Bolivia is an outpouring of the grace and love that I have received. I want others to hear this Good News and feel His blessings. I want people to know that they are loved beyond any kind of comprehension and that they are not alone in their struggles and sufferings. By working cross-culturally, I can serve others with the joy and love that I feel. Metaphorically, we are part of a family. We are a big body of unique and different parts all working together for the common good. When one member of this body hurts, I hurt. When one member of the body struggles, I struggle with them. When we are able to support one another with joy and love in our hearts, we can encourage one another in strength and find our rock and shelter. The things in this world are temporary and fleeting, but together in the grace we have received, we are strong.

This will be my first plane ride (15+ hours, woohoo) my first time off the East Coast, my first time out of the USA, and my first missions trip. Isn’t the phrase, “go big, or go home?” I will be going with my friend Tara who is a senior pre-medical student at Boston College and who attends Symphony Church in Boston with me.

As I am sure that mom and dad would really appreciate it, if any one feels really encouraged and wants to help donate to this endeavor, let me say thank you ahead so much for your willingness! The trip is $1600 for visa and ministry needs, such as vacation bible school, basic medical care, supplies, and evangelism. I have already raised some support and am still hoping to raise $1000. I will be traveling to New York and will leave on June 12th. I will be back in the States close to midnight on June 29th.

More important than donations, please pray and think of both of us! We wish that there would be a special protection on this trip and that we would grow and be a blessing to the people of Bolivia. We seek discernment, that we would not lean on our understanding, but have complete faith and trust. Please help us to remember that we can only plant seeds and it is up to the local people to help let them grow.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as Tara and I diligently prepare for this trip!

Thank you!

Grace and Peace,

Leah
