THE STORY:

Dear Friends & Family,
I am writing you today for a few reasons. First, for an update on how I am. I want to share with you today some of the blessings I’ve been so graciously apart of in my life over the past year.
I just turned 19 in March, and for the last year have been on such an awesome journey with God. I’ve become part of an amazing church family for a little over a year now where I feel like I’ve grown so much into the person I’m meant to be. I made the decision to be baptized last Easter, and what an amazing journey it has been since. Shortly after I was baptized I joined a college life group, where I’ve learned so much about the life I want to live as a follower of God. From how to treat our brothers and sisters through Christ, to managing money the proper way, my life group truly makes me feel good, and like I’m right where I’m supposed to be.
Every Sunday I serve in our student ministries, as well as lead my very own life group of 7th grade girls. THAT, is something powerful. It really is amazing being able to be there in the name of God for these girls and to assist them in finding their paths just like I’m finding mine.
This past month in my college life group we were made aware of what our church calls global outreach. Central Christian Church (my church), is looking to gather a team of individuals to travel this year to Cairo, Egypt. We are traveling in efforts to not only expand our world views, build relationships, and engage with the people of Egypt, but to pray, and to learn the culture and customs of the locals.
I feel a calling so strongly by God to be a part of this trip, and with that I am asking for your help. As my family and friends I ask that you keep me, my journey, and our global outreach to Egypt in your prayers. I ask that you pray for my faith and for the short time I have to bring everything together to make this trip more of a reality than a dream. The total cost for the trip is estimated to be $2,300.00 with a travel dates of June 5th-17th. I’m hoping to have everything accounted for by May 31th, 2014. It’s a long stretch I know, but with your help, prayer, and any donations possible, I have faith and trust that God will bless this trip through my hard work here at home and through you as my supporters.
Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your time, for your prayers, and for your generosity today.

In Christ’s name,
Christina A. Acosta
