Tim & Juliane's Mission Trip to South Africa
Organized by: Tim Guarnieri
Thank You Donors...You Are Making A Difference!
May 26, 2016
Dear friends and family of both Jules and Tim,
Together, we are asking for your support to allow us to travel to South Africa with a Christian Mission Team to help address the devastation occurring in the country.
Our Mission Team is made up of pastors and supervisors from the nonprofit soup kitchen, The Fathers Heart Ministries, located in the East Village of New York City. This will be the second year The Father's Heart has made the mission to South Africa. The ministry team is travelling in late July 2016 for 10 days to East London, South Africa to work with families, mostly children, who are affected and infected by HIV/AIDS. These children have witnessed indescribable horrors that are associated with the overwhelming poverty and violence in this region; 20% of the children are HIV-positive.
While in South Africa, our Team will be working with the First City Baptist Church, which includes Hope School and the Sophumeleta Centre. Hope School is an education center providing holistic care for children of devastated families. Sophumeleta Centre which means, "we will succeed", works to build stronger local communities for people affected by HIV/AIDS and poverty. Our primary 'mission' will be to change lives by creating hope and joy through the caring of the people of South Africa.
While we are fundraising together, our mission team is made up of 10 extremely giving people who all place their trust in God. Please also know that 100% of all donations raised will be used towards travel expenses and directly supporting those in need.
Please join our mission to help so many who need so much and restore their HOPE.
With love, Jules and Tim
