Asking for money is never easy.
Asking for money to go on a trip is not easy.
And asking for money to go on a trip for the 4th year in a row is uncomfortable beyond measure.
Guatemala 2016 is just a few months away (8/21-8/29) and I can honestly say that I have been putting off writing this letter more than I did the first year I went. I don’t want to come across as annoying or ungrateful or spoiled or deserving. And I REALLY don’t want this to be a typical “mission trip, please help me get to where I’m going” letter.
I have so many stories of how Guatemala has impacted me and what we have done in the last 3 years of going, but I really just want to get to the point because you already know what I’m asking.
I want to ask you to partner with me by supporting my team and I get too Guatemala. We can’t do it without your support. That could be donating financially, donating clothes/textiles for our drive that is coming up or donating gently used items for the garage sale that I will be having on June 4th.
Partner with me in taking a step of faith. I know I say that every time, but by showing your support you will be helping me get to work. Not only by helping in the clinics, but by sending me to provide a specific service for the La Mision team. They use the photos I take to help bring awareness to the work that they are doing throughout the year and it blesses me so much to be able to do that for them.
Every year I am blown away by everyone who supports me. Not just in the financial way, but by the little things. Words of encouragement and asking me about the trip in general. It’s an amazing experience and I wish I could explain it in a way that would do it justice.
Please take your time in considering your support. Pray about it and please, please, please ask questions if you have them.
You can give online here. Just follow the prompts, click on "Guatemala Missions" and then add my name in the "Notes" section. If you have trouble at all, just let me know and I can help.
