post-it project...

When we compare our lives to others, it may be disillusioning. But there is a healthy introspection that comes from acknowledging what you have in light of the blessings God has given. Therefore, give back.

In the midst of the craziness of life, I don't want to forget my commitments to serving a cause greater than myself. As I've mentioned in a previous post, I have been invited to go to Africa this summer to partner with Mavuno church in Kenya. This adventure is exciting and nerve-wrecking all at the same time. In order to be a participant on this trip each member is required to fund raise 100% of their financial support.

There's a nasty little monster that hangs on my shoulders and his name is Pride. I hate asking for help--especially financial help. But the premise and core ideology of Outreach is to invite others to join in on our journey. With your financial help you're able to participate in this adventure with me. The Post-It Project will give you a small way to be where I am.

For ten days a group of youth from Orange County will join with a group of youth from Kenya for total world domination! Well--something like that. Here's some vision for the trip:

Your video was amazing. To see how you want to touch others lives, to see how much you care and how dedicated you are IS SO INSPIRING. Many prayers are coming your way.

Courtney said...

What an AMAZING opportunity! My prayers are with you and your team as you seek financial support and during your travels.

(The church I attend in the Central Valley supports the Mavuno church as well (primarily Mavuno Downtown). We've built wonderful relationships with some awesome people, many who have visited CA recently.)
