It’s been a while since I’ve given a ministry update, so here goes.
Romans 10:18 But I ask: Did they not hear? Of course they did: “Their voice has gone out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”
The last few months we’ve been working hard to raise a large amount of money to further our global mission teams. We usually hold a “special missions contribution” twice a year to go into this. Through this fund, we’re able to reach out to new countries by planting new churches and supporting full time interns for the church. The most recent two sent out are Moscow, Russia and Metro Manila, Philippines. My boyfriend actually went with the Metro Manila team this past Monday and will be there long term, and a large amount of close friends of mine went to Moscow this past December. As dear as both of these teams are to my heart, we also have many more plantings around the world that are supported by this fund. In addition to that, Johannesburg, Cairo and Hong Kong are on the map for the next couple of years. These aren’t just short-term trips, but many people go on these teams with intentions of never returning to the states, or being gone up to a year. It is also in my hopes to be able to join the Manila team eventually, but for the time being I will continue to work hard to further God’s kingdom in Long Beach, particularly at Cerritos College.
Now, you may be wondering why I’m bringing this up. See, we’re trying to raise over $30,000 in our congregation alone, and all help is appreciated. It’s not an easy undertaking, but by the grace of God we’re over halfway at this point. Many of you have supported my endeavors in the past, and I’m asking again, pleading with you, there is a lost world out there and we’re doing something about it. This project has been going since 2009, starting with Santiago, Chile.
So here is my plea, please help support us. If you have more questions, feel free to contact my via email, Facebook, phone or even on here. I would be glad to hear from you.
1 Timothy 6:17-19 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
Surely, in America we are much richer than those around the world. I beg of you, please be generous and help if you are able. Our shepherd, Lance Underhill has been hosting our gofundme account so that we have an easy way of transferring the money. If you are able to even give $5, please do. Any amount will help. http://www.gofundme.com/r8zbg8wc

Thank you very much, I hope to hear from you soon.
To God be the glory.
