Dear family and friends,
Recently I made a decision to go on a short-term mission trip with Food for the Hungry. Drs. Ron and Annette Cargioli have been supportive by allowing me the time away from my job. I’m excited about the opportunity God is giving me to share the love of Jesus in Bangladesh and I’m writing to tell you more about both the opportunity and how you can be involved.
“Why Bangladesh?” Bangladesh is one of the poorest and spiritually unreached countries in the world. The average family lives on less than $1/day with over 300 unreached people groups. Most importantly, the millions of Bangladeshis who suffer will become dear to us as real people with real names and real needs.
“What will I do in Bangladesh?” Our team will support the educational program led year-round by the Food for the Hungry staff by helping the teachers develop their English skills. Also during this time, the team will organize and participate in activities, crafts and fun with the children in the program! Our team will be ministering to the untouchable caste, the lowest of the Hindu caste system. Our team will be demonstrating in word and deed to these families that they have tremendous worth and value. We will be the hands and feet of Jesus on this trip.
I am requesting prayer for preparation for my trip; please begin praying that I will depend on God to strengthen my character. Please pray that I go as a learner and a loving representative of Christ.
I will also need financial support. The amount for me to serve on this team is approximately $3,200 and I am trusting God to supply for His work. This will go towards the ongoing child development program costs as well as provide for my trip expenses. If you aren’t able to help financially, please know that I consider prayer support just as important. If you are willing to pray for my trip or able to give financial support, please complete the enclosed form and return it to me by September 30, 2008.
In closing, I thank you for reading this letter and considering my needs for prayer and support. Please contact me if you have any questions. I am extremely exciting about this ministry and hope you can share in my excitement.
I have enclosed information on the area of Bangladesh that we are visiting. To learn more about Food for the Hungry, please visit our website at www.fh.org.
Please leave a comment or message me if you would like to support this mission in any way.
