ORGANIZER: Kailua Church of the Nazarene
EVENT DATE: Mar 10, 2013
I am part of Kailua Church of the Nazarene relay team which is running/walking in the Hapalua Half Marathon. While I am not passionate about "running" at this stage of my life, I do have a passion for my Churches Mission which is sending two teams to Peru and Madagascar this summer. I will attemp to walk in one of the relay teams. I'm praying that I will be able to particpate on the Work & Witness Team that goes to Madagascar, but I know I can't do it alone. I need your financial support to make this trip possible. Thanks for your prayers and your support!

As part of our Mission Statement: “To share God’s grace at anytime, to anyone, in anyway” the Kailua Church plans to send out 2 Summer Mission Teams made up of volunteers from our congregation in the Summer of 2013.
The Mission Trip takes place in July and the destination is to the Jungles of Peru, along the Maranon River. This Work & Witness team will be helping to reconstruct a Church Building, assisting with a Pastors Conference of over 200 pastors; and will supply the Jesus Film with solar powered equipment to be used by the local pastors in their villages where there is no electricity.
The 2nd Team will spend two weeks in August taking the Jesus film to remote communities on the Island Nation of Madagascar off the mainland of Africa. Using small motor bikes and taking with them solar powered film equipment, the team will go to villages where it is very likely that the story of Jesus has never been told before.
The cost per person for the trip to Peru is $2000; for the trip to Madagascar is $4500. Funds donated from this fund raiser will be used to purchase portable Jesus Film equipment backpacks with solar powered projectors. Cost per unit is $1500. Additional funds will assist our volunteer missionaries with their travel expenses.
