January 2016 - Dominican Republic Missions Trip (Medical & Construction)
WHO ARE WE? Hi. My name is B.J. Guderian, and I am the blessed wife of Ross Guderian (the man working so hard in the picture). Ross and I have been married just a little over 30 years, and we both became Christians right around 2001. Since that time, I have been attending school to get my undergraduate in Religion (with a minor in Christian counseling) and doing jail/prison ministry. My husband has been driving truck around the country almost the past two years to provide for us
PURPOSE OF FUNDING: Recently we moved to Portage, Wisconsin, in an attempt to help our financial situation. My husband and I started attending a Bible-believing church who is planning a missions trip to the Dominican Republic in January of 2016. The trip is to help with medical needs and construction of a new hospital (to replace the old/damaged one). Because of Ross's EMT skills and construction education, he feels really led to go on this trip. I will be staying behind, continuing to pray for the group and hold down the fort in Portage.
WHY DO WE NEED HELP? First, B.J. does not currently have work. She has some aging parents out west and will be going to visit them to help them. So Ross is our sole provider, and because of the high price of $400+ per month for health care, we really do not have much left once bills are paid. (We even drive two used cars that are paid for to keep debt down!) If he goes on this trip, he does NOT get paid while he is gone. In addition, we will still have to pay our $123.40 for health insurances for the week he is gone so we need to raise the funds to pay for this before he goes.
WHERE WILL THE MONEY GO? The cost of the trip has been estimated by Grace Bible Church (Portage, Wisconsin) to be $1,200. He is going to have to pay for a passport ($135), approximately $700 in wages for the week he is gone, and $123.40 for the health insurance. So we need to raise $2,158.40.
WHAT IF MORE IS GIVEN? Anything over and above the expenses mentioned above will be given to others on the trip who do not have all their funding. If all others have their funding, then the monies will either be given to Grace Bible Church for their missions fund or be given to a friend of ours who missions in Honduras.
WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS? Please email me or call me. My phone is 608-477-8464. Because Ross is on the road five and six days per week with work, I am doing my best to help him with all the legwork associated with his trip. But you are also welcome to get in touch with Ross. Just let me know.
