BENEFITING: 410 BRIDGE INC
EVENT DATE: Jul 13, 2012
“Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.” – Hebrews 10:24
On July 13th, I will be going to Haiti on a short-term mission trip, organized by North Point Community Church’s globalX program and partnering non-profit, 410Bridge! Even though it has been two years since the Haiti earthquake, there is still much need for support and North Point is sending teams over this summer as we seek to serve and support Bohoc, a local community outside of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Just a couple years ago, I would’ve never pictured my life being where it is today. I was incomplete, constantly trying to fill a void through defining my self-worth based upon Earthly things – a career, relationships, friendships, etc. It wasn’t until my family & I were blessed with the messages of North Point Community Church that I was able to start my walk in faith, a walk that is continuous and has lead me to understanding God’s love for us (John 3:16) and realizing that my worth is not defined by Earthly things, but by an everlasting love that has lead me to being the woman I am today.
It is through my walk that I have discovered my purpose of sharing and communicating God’s love with others. Since discovering my purpose, I’ve been blessed with a number of opportunities to live out my purpose…one of which is serving through my mission trip to Haiti this summer that happens to take place on my 25th birthday! I am extremely excited!
From July 13th through July 20th, my team will work alongside the people of the 410 Bridge community of Bohoc, Haiti, focusing on service projects and discipleship programs that have been identified as priorities by leaders in the community and local churches. These include working on water projects, building construction and renovation, teaching in schools, and more. We will also have the opportunity to interact with local leaders, community members, and children, while building relationships throughout the week. This will be a life-changing experience, serving and building relationships and sharing the love of Christ with our brothers and sisters in Haiti!
I would love for you to have the opportunity to serve with me on this exciting adventure God has called me to be a part of! The total cost of my trip is $1,900. This seems like a lot initially, but if only 100 people can donate $19, I can easily reach my goal! If you are unable to contribute financially, that’s ok, for your prayer support is needed and would be much appreciated as we begin our journey to Haiti. These are a few specific areas you can join us in prayer for:
Safety in travel, especially on July 13 and July 20 (the days we leave & return)
Team unity and safety while we are in Haiti
The U.S. missionaries and Haitian nationals
The specific ministries that we will be supporting and projects we will be doing
The Haitians whom we will come in contact with
Donations are made directly to 410Bridge and are tax deductible. The deadline for contributions to our team is April 19.
