Good morning!  :o) Just over 3 weeks until I leave for Phnom Penh.  My excitement to go be an extra body to help is bubbling out of me.  I See More

EVENT DATE Apr 20, 2016

THE STORY:

Hello from a new fundraising site for my mission trip to Cambodia to fight sex trafficking.

You may be asking yourself why I'm fundraising from crowdrise.com now. Well, gofundme.com charges 7.5% in fees from every donation. This website was referred by a friend because their fees are a maximum of 3%. That means more money to cover my costs and more supplies to purchase for the ministry and people in need in Cambodia.

Because so many of you have supported me through prayers, encouragement, financial donations, and/or donated items, you are empowering a nation that has been oppressed, impoverished, and voiceless. Sex trafficking is running rampant throughout Cambodia through different avenues, but a great many family members that live in the slums sell their children (of all ages), grandchildren, nieces and/or nephews to traffickers daily.

XP Missions is focused daily on educating and empowering children in the slums, creating training, jobs, and counseling for ladies that were sold or coerced into prostitution, and a home for children that were trafficked and don't have a family that will keep them safe. You are helping to add another set of feet on the street in Phnom Penh, Cambodia for a week and a half and items to help support the ministry. Everyone and everything makes a difference.

I'm taking multiple suitcases with items from their need list (including Kmer Bibles) that I've purchased. If you'd like to buy items for me to take, below is a list of needs. I'm leaving April 20th, so please have items to be 1 week before I leave. Thank you!
