BENEFITING: MCLEAN BIBLE CHURCH
EVENT DATE: Jul 27, 2013
I am part of a team of 150+ people from McLean Bible Church who will depart on July 27th for a 7 day trip to the DR. We will be doing a variety of things from construction to inner city outreach. Additionally, our biggest project is working with the children and families at a local educational and feeding center. Emanuel House cares for 150 needy children in the city of Quisqueya. This year, we are going to be working with a new special needs program which is reaching children with severe disabilities.

In preparing for this trip, each team member has been asked to raise $1,700 for travel costs, lodging, food, transportation, insurance and ministry supplies on the ground for the week we are there. I feel both humbled and blessed to know how God has supported this mission in years past, and I ask that you would pray for its success this year. In addition, I ask you would pray for me as I prepare to go to the Dominican Republic and pray that I can be a blessing to those in need while I am there.
Lastly, please pray for safe travel, for the heath of our team, and that we return with a lasting compassion and spirit of action in response to what we see. Thank you for your time, interest and support.
