Peru, aqui voy | an announcement



Some of you may know this already, but to others, this will be big news.

The LORD has opened doors for me to go on my first mission's trip...and it's to one of the countries that I have always wanted to visit: Peru.  

My Dad was born there, my parents visited there back in '93, and I have so much family there who I haven't even met.  I've always wanted to travel, but not just to tour.  I want to travel and spread the Gospel as I go.  Through a series of incredible circumstances, God has given me confirmation that Scripture Union is the ministry I should go with and I have been accepted as part of an incredible team of 11 believers who are going.  

The mission trip will be from July 7th-July 18th, 2014.  While there we will be up in the mountains of Yungay at a home for abandoned boys (ages 5-mid 20's).  We will work almost all day, every day.  The time that we're not working, will be spent with the boys - playing games, ministering through music and stories, etc.  But overall, most of the trip will be spent just showing God's love and ministering to these boys who were abandoned on the harsh streets of Peru.

The cost of the entire trip will be around $2,000.  I am needing to raise half of that by March 15th, and the other half by May 1st.  If you would like more details on how you can help me raise these funds, please email me.  I am asking (instead of gifts for Christmas or my birthday) that you please consider helping sponsor this trip for me.  And if not, please be in prayer for me and the whole team - that we can raise all the funds and that God continues to bless our efforts to put this team together.  

Thank you so much!:)

  7. As you know, the site Free Jinger has targeted and attacked you for some time now. Their actions are illegal and fall into the categories of stalking, harassment, intimidation, threats, and provoking terror.
    There is a group dedicated to seeing this disgusting website close and people like you be freed of their reign of terror.
    If you seek legal retribution (which we encourage) the site owners name is Towal E Jacobsen. Her phone number and address can be found by googling her name and "address VA" - there is not much I can do to silence her hateful nastiness other than pass this information (which only recently came to light) on to you and other bloggers like you whom she has attacked and encouraged her 7000 members to do the same. We hope one or many of you do decide to take legal action and that their hate is put to rest.
    Your blog is lovely - don't let them tell you otherwise. You are a bright and encouraging young girl - don't ever stop being you because of mean things other people say. You are amazing just as you are - best wishes and good luck!!

  8. Wonderful!! I just got back from Guatemala, my first missions trip Saturday night and I was totally blown away by how God worked in and through me. I think everyone should go on at least one missions trip in their life. I'll be praying that God provides you the money for the trip and that he prepares your heart for this trip!
