Dear friends and family, I am writing you requesting your prayer and support in a very specific challenge God has placed on my heart. I have been asking God to reveal to me how I can be more compassionate in my walk as a Christ follower. My church, The Grove Bible Church, is very global in its service projects. Experiencing my friends and family travel around the world serving the needs of families without consideration of borders has been beautiful and humbling to witness. I have stood back for seven years and longed to get to a place where I, too, could experience the opportunity to be God's hands and feet for the least of these. I am so excited to share with you that in June 2016 I am going on a service trip to Malawi, Africa for two weeks. I will most likely be placed on the medical team where I can assist doctors from our church who will be setting up mobile clinics in multiple villages, at the chief's conference and in operations on multiple patients with very large lipomas. God has used my experience as a medical assistant and my long time employment at valley urgent cares to prepare me to serve these patients who would otherwise not receive any medical care at all. Malawi is located in Southeast Africa bordered by Tanzania, Zambia and Mozambique. Malawi gained its independence from Great Britain in 1964 and is called the "Warm Heart of Africa." For the past seven years The Grove has been working with the Chichewa people in the village of Chipampha. The Grove will be working along side our host, African Bible College, to work in the village through various ministries. I am excited about the opportunity to serve and I ask you to join me in this ministry through prayer and if you're called, monetary donations and support. Any amount you are called to give will be a blessing, even if it's $5 or $10. This trip is being funded entirely through donations and by sales of my pallet art. I thank you in advance for your prayers and your financial support. May God bless you richly! In Christ, Elaine Crippen
