On May 19-28, 2017, I will be going, along with others from my local Raleigh church, Christ's Sanctified Holy Church to the mountains or the river area of rural Guatemala with a non-profit called Faith in Action.
We will most likely be working on projects such as housing construction, water wells, etc. We hope that showing God’s love will open doors to spread the Gospel, as well as simply be blessing to the citizens of Guatemala.
For more info about the company we are going with, Faith in Action, or the trip in general, visit their website at www.fiaministries.com.
In the spirit of honesty, I can fully fund my own trip. That's not to say it won't take some strict budgetting on my part, but I am not completely dependent on your donations in order to go to Guatemala. With that being said, I only want you to give if you feel led to. If you don't feel led to give to me, you can donate money to the group as a whole at https://www.crowdrise.com/christs-santified-holy-church-raleigh-missions/fundraiser. Either way, there is no obligation to give! I appreciate you taking the time to even think about giving and for visiting this page! The only thing I ask is that you pray for us and this trip, or if you don't pray, just send good thoughts our way.
For those that do want to give and want to know more about our Fundraising Goals, we've determined that it's about $1800 per person to go on this trip. It's about $1000 for Faith in Action to provide food and board for us during the trip, and then another $800 in plane tickets and transportation fees to get us to Guatemala. I added another $200 to my personal goal to pay for vaccinations, my passport ($135), and other trip related expenses that may come up.
If you have anymore questions about the trip feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will be happy to answer them.
Thank you so much for taking the time to show interest and give to this "little" endeavour!
