We Need Your Help
For the last 13 years, Encounter has worked from Alabama to Africa to bring freedom and life in Christ to hurting and hungry people. Encounter exists to play a vital role in the restoration of Kingdom hearts and has done so through various mission projects. As a board member for Encounter for the last few years, I have worked in our Prison ministry, College ministry, Men’s ministry, local homeless outreach and for well over a decade, have led our outreach in Lesotho and South Africa with LifeTrek Global and The Bana Project. We have cared for thousands of orphans, at-risk children, as well as adults in need. This country continues to be ravaged by the HIV/AIDS Pandemic and children bear the brunt of that pain.
What We Do
Our focus through the years with Encounter and LifeTrek has been empowering indigenous church and community leaders as well as volunteers through The Bana Project to provide weekly meals, school uniforms, school fees, blankets and other humanitarian aid for the people of Lesotho. Our family founded and continues to oversee the work there. And about twice a year I head over to encourage, oversee, and take teams of volunteers to help with the work. This year we are raising funds to not only continue but to expand our work among the Basotho in this mountain kingdom. LifeTrek is mission work, it is Kingdom work. And we need your help.
How Can You Help?
This kind of work takes funds to fuel the mission. It takes funds to provide hot meals, transportation for meals and supplies, uniforms, blankets, and school fees. Will you stand with us today by making a one-time tax deductible donation to fund this work? These funds go directly to our work in Africa. I personally have committed to raise at least $5000 and together we are planning to raise $25,000 to continue the mission.
