Monica's Trip to Bolivia
Organized by: deleted deleted
EVENT DATE Aug 01, 2015
I am very excited to announce that this summer I will be going on my first mission trip abroad to Santa Cruz, Bolivia! I will be traveling with a great group of missionaries from my church, St. Mary Coptic Orthodox Church of Savage, Maryland, from August 1-10.
There are many activities and services that my group and I will be invested in. We will be helping around with tasks and assisting ministries at the Santa Maria y San Marcos Coptic Orthodox Church. This church is very focused on the well-being of its congregation, and I see it as a goal to further this mission of selflessness and compassion.
I will also help plan and organize a vacation bible school for young Bolivian children, leading youth meetings and activities, assisting with various community programs, and also ministering to many different communities around Bolivia.
Finally, I am taking up the task of learning and mastering spanish songs to sing and play on guitar. Three other missionaries are also part of this commitee with me. Some of the songs we are learning are children's songs which we will perform for the young Bolivian children at their VBS. The rest of the songs will be for our regular praise and worship nights in Bolivia.
I hope and pray that my experience in Bolivia will not only result in positive changes to individuals and communities, but will also humble me as a servant of Christ.
My airfare to travel costs $1000 alone. There are also several other expenses and accomodations which I will have to cover along my trip. Any contribution you put forward to my trip will be greatly, greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
