Hello my name is Mercie! I gave my life to Christ at the age of 13 I am now 15, and my relationship with Christ has changed my life! For many months now God has been speaking to me to take a big step. I was unsure what exactly he meant. After many months of praying about it, I finally heard God tell me "Mission Trip". The next day my small group leader and I were talking, and she told me about the mission trip she's going on to Peru for the summer of 2019! I've talked to my parents and they love the idea, but the one issue is how to raise the money?
I've been brainstorming idea, after idea! I've turned an application into EVERY company within 10 miles, but no one wants to hire a 15 year old girl. I turn 16 in October and will get a job, but I'm afraid I still won't be able to raise all the money! I'm baking 150 cookie this weekend to sell at school on Monday. I babysit for my family and friends, and will go work for my aunt / uncle during the summer. I am really trying to raise $3,500 if you could please help with any money I would appreciate that beyond what I can say! Thank you so much for spending your time reading this short story!
