BENEFITING: CORNER OF LOVE MINISTRIES
EVENT DATE: Jun 18, 2013
This June all of our family will be traveling to Nicaragua with the "Brighter Life" Mission.
This is an eight day trip with Corner of Love Ministries, a Christian outreach to Nicaragua. Corner of Love involves volunteers in medical and dental clinics in impoverished villages in North Nicaragua. We are going to be part of a team of approximately 50 people from here in Daytona Beach. This will be Sam and Hannah's third trip and Leah's second. Janel, Elizabeth, and Abigail are looking forward to making their first trip.
We feel called to this trip for two primary reasons. The first – both Sam and Janel are nurses and can provide medical care to those who need it. The second – this is an opportunity to teach the children about missions and serving others by demonstration and example.
The mission objective is to carry out 4 days of medical/dental clinics in impoverished North Nicaragua, and do work at the construction site for the new medical clinic, school and church. We will also participate in “shoe clinics” where we help provide school shoes for the children so that they can go to school.
Near Matagalpa, the village where we will be serving, children seldom complete elementary school and most survive on less than $1.00 per day. In these villages, there is no electricity and very few households have potable water.
We are writing to you to ask if you might consider helping us. As part of this team, we are seeking your prayers and monetary support to help our family go this June and help us purchase medicine, building supplies and shoes. We will need about $1350 each for the six of us to be able to go. Would you consider supporting our mission with a one-time financial gift of $100, $50, or $20?
Checks can be made out to “Spruce Creek Presbyterian Church” and mailed in the enclosed envelope to Spruce Creek Presbyterian Church c/o Coffing 1705 Taylor Road Port Orange, FL 32128. Electronic donations can be made to http://sprucecreekpca.publishpath.com/ministries and following the “Click Here to Donate” link and completing the required Paypal information.

Thank you for reading about our upcoming mission trip. We are very excited about this opportunity for our all of us to serve together in Nicaragua and look forward to sharing with you when we return. We know that with your prayer and support we will have a successful mission and be able to share the love of Christ and change many lives! With much appreciation!
Sam, Janel, Hannah, Elizabeth, Leah, Abigail Coffing
