India Letter

Dear Friends & Family, 

I am just sitting here in awe of everything that God has done in my life over the past year. I was beyond blessed from my Philippines trip last year and now God has laid another opportunity on my heart. The Lord provided the application fee the week my application was due but the destination was the real question. I originally felt a pull towards Thailand and Cambodia for two weeks but the Lord had other plans for me. I ended up being encouraged to apply for an extended trip and left everything in His hands.

Now I sit here, writing another letter, asking for support and prayers because I am going to India for two months this summer. I am beyond excited about this opportunity and am settling into my team of three. We will be traveling to Imphal, India on May 15th through July 15th and we will be working with Hands Giving Hope. 

I ask that you join me in praying for the preparation of my team, protection and guidance while in Imphal. My trip costs $3900 but I am sitting in trust that the Lord will provide. I am grateful for anything you can send whether it is cash, check, change or most importantly prayers! All checks need to be written to Hands Giving Hope and my name should NOT be anywhere on the check. Please send all support to 5619 Fairmeade Way, Las Vegas, NV 89135. I am beyond grateful for all support you are called to and wish you all to be involved in my mission.

Our team will be staying within the village of Imphal which is located in the jungle of Northeast India. We will be primarily working with the orphans in this city which I am extremely excited about. We will also be doing door to door ministry and have a focus on building relationships with the locals during our eight weeks. A few other goals are food outreaches as well as VBS programs. 


I will be fundraising and using my creativity gift to create things to sell.
