Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I would like to share about an exciting opportunity I’ve been given this summer. I have prayed and thought about it a lot and have decided to give my summer to God by serving Him in China. From July 19 to July 27, I will be going on a short term trip to Yanji, China with 5 other team members from NamSeoul English Worship Service (NEWS). We will be helping a camp that is run by Reah International, an NGO that supports our northern neighbors. It is hosted at YUST. Many field workers come to Yanji during the school breaks with their kids. Our desire is to love and encourage these kids. We are hoping to be good examples of God’s relentless love and to support our field workers who serve year in and year out. Our team desires to reach out and allow God to work through our own lives.
We currently have a team of 6 who will teach a camp for about 20 students. My goal is for our team to raise about 5,000,000 won ($5,000 USD) to cover expenses and to help subsidize airfare. I don't like raising funds for myself but gladly do so for my team. If we raise more funds than necessary, we will find a way to bless our partners in the field.
We accept cash, Korean bank transfer, and credit card transactions. Currently, I cannot offer tax receipts but if you really want it, I'll see what I can do.
More importantly, we need your prayer. If you cannot give but can commit to pray, I will gladly include you in our prayer updates in the future.
Thanks so much for your prayers and support.
