BENEFITING: CORNER OF LOVE MINISTRIES
Can you envision a land where entire families grow and pick coffee together, villagers make shoes out of palm leaves, and mothers choose ONE of their many children to go to school? I want to share with you a challenging ministry opportunity God has presented to me. From December 4-11, 2016, I will be going to Nicaragua to serve in mountainous communities near San Ramon with a team from Corner of Love. Our seven day trip will focus on bringing healthcare to rural villages in this area of the world that is often referred to as 'the forgotten mountains.' The purpose of our trip is fourfold: First, we will be allowing God to work in our lives through the personal enrichment that comes from this type of a mission trip. Second, this journey will help us focus our individual prayers by traveling to a foreign land and praying 'on-site with insight' after witnessing how villagers live and raise their families. Third, we will be bringing the loving care of doctors, nurses, and a dental team to meet the healthcare needs of more than one thousand impoverished Nicaraguans. Fourth, we will provide badly needed medicine, like anti-parasite treatments, antibiotics, and vitamins to all the patients who come to our clinics. I'm excited about the opportunity and experience that lie ahead. I hope you see the value in what we will accomplish. Some of you know I had an opportunity to serve with my Dad and daughter in 2009, and it was instrumental in lighting that spark that helped me find my relationship with the Lord. I'm excited to be able to serve again and to shine Christ's light. As you can imagine, a trip like this requires financial support from a number of people. I need to raise $1250 by November 4th, but hope to exceed that goal to $2000.00 to help Corner of Love purchase extra medical supplies and shoes, so more children in the villages can go to school. If you can support me in a financial way, I would be very grateful. And, most importantly, I also need your prayer support. Prayer is the fuel that will allow us to be successful as we follow God's leading in ministry in Central America. Without prayer, nothing will happen. I will be purchasing my own plane ticket, and have contributed $100.00 to the money needed as well.
