Monica's Mission to Quito, Ecuador
Organized by: Monica Peterson
EVENT DATE Jul 08, 2016
Hey friends and family!! I am so excited to share this news with you all! As some of you may or may not know, I am a Senior at the University of South Carolina Upstate majoring in Nursing. Helping others is something that I have always been passionate about and it has now become a reality for me to take the skills I have learned thus far out of the country. I recently was offered an opportunity by the Mary Black School of Nursing program to complete one of my required 6 credit hour courses (International Public Health) in Ecuador this summer. (Yay!!)
My parents have been gracious enough to help with the cost of tuition for the class, but on my own I cannot afford the price of this trip. It has been in my mind and on my heart for almost a year now to go on this trip, so I am anxiously praying that this will be a possibility for me. I am currently trying to raise money to cover the cost of the trip (includes flight expenses, as well as food, housing and in-country travel.) The price comes to $3250. Therefore, any donations small or large would be much appreciated as I am beyond grateful to even be blessed with this opportunity.
I also ask if you would please pray for this trip to be a strong missions experience. Pray for the 10 of us who are going - that we would be open to learning from the community we're helping and grow closer as a group and closer to Jesus. Pray for the community members we meet - that we could love and honor them well.
If you commit to praying for us, please let me know. I would love to share that awesome news with my team.
Thank you and much love to you all!
