BENEFITING: VINE AND BRANCHES GLOBAL MINISTRIES
EVENT DATE: Jun 11, 2012
Can you imagine if nobody had taught you that you ought to wash your hands after using the bathroom or before you eat? Can you imagine that in your entire house, there was not one family picture? Can you imagine if you never had the opportunity to hear about God’s love for you?
I am inviting you to be part of a ministry to people who are poor and need to hear that God cares about them. This summer, I will be going to Trujillo, Peru with a group of Grand Canyon University students. Our leader is a professor who lived there for eight years and continues to minister in Peru’s second largest city.
During this trip, I will be going out each morning with the team to Alto Trujillo, an area of great need and many people. Many of the people who live in this area are without water, sanitation or electricity. We will be going to help them with some of the very basics and encouraging them to do what we will show them, like how and why to wash their hands. We will also do some things that the local people would never get to do, like have a family picture taken. Most people do not have a picture of their family!
As we work with the people, we will also be sharing the difference that Jesus has made in our lives. Last year’s group had a huge impact on the area and the local pastor is anxious to have us back!
I need to have the first $1400 in by April 1st and an additional $1000 by June 1st. Would you be able to help me with all or part of that amount? If you can give toward the trip, you will be able to get a tax deduction.
