Dearest Family & Friends, 09 Hope you are doing well and enjoying some early winter weather!

Guess what, I have exciting news to share with you! For one week next summer, my church will be leading a team of people on a missions trip to the Dream Center in Los Angeles, California. Our exact dates are from August 1st – 9th, 2010. While there, we will be working in several different intercity ministries like Hope For Homeless Youth, MetroKidz (just like we do in Lynn every summer!), Food Truck, Adopt-a-Block, bus ministry, foster care ministry, street ministry, and even more. We will be helping the Dream Center build relationships with people in the city. THE LADC uses those relationships and influence to then spread the hope of Jesus Christ. Since the LADC started the crime rate in that neighbor has gone down over 80%! We believe God can use these activities to provide an opportunity for us to share our faith in Jesus Christ.

Climbing “Picaya”, active volcano in Guatemala (Feb ‘09)!

As many of you may know, I spent a week this past February in Guatemala working with John & Dina Musacchio with their ministry to youth called “Impacto Juvenil”. That was my second trip to Guatemala. I will never forget hearing one of our Guatemalan friends say how grateful they were that our team came from Calvary Christian Church to help them in Guatemala. My life has never been the same since I ventured overseas on a missions trip. Our God is a global God, and it’s our desire to help others catch a heart for global missions. I’m excited about this

trip and excited to be apart of a generation that is willing to get our “hands dirty” (literally on this trip!) working for the Lord and help meet the needs, both physically and spiritually, of a lost and dying world. I’m reminded that The Bible says in James 1:27 “Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.” That is my mission for this trip, to serve the homeless, loveless, and hopeless. In order to take part in this trip I am raising $1,200, however, my first payment for the trip is in January. Will you consider giving a single gift to help send
me to the LA Dream Center next summer? Simply detach the response slip below and return it with your gift in the enclosed envelope. Because this is a special project, you will receive a charitable receipt from Calvary Christian Church.

Thank you for your partnership and support. I know that God will do amazing things as a result of your financial and prayer support. Speaking of, please be in prayer for myself and the team from CCC… you’re prayers are most important and very much appreciated! Can’t wait to see what God’s going to do through our group of young people in LA next summer! We’re already starting to prepare now, so keep us in prayer! Thanks  Running to the Battle,
