// Free People: Peru Mission Trip 2016 //

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”  Joshua 1:9


About ten years ago God put a desire in my heart for missions. I have held this desire in my heart, captive by fear. As I was praying about what my 'one word' should be for 2016, God just kept placing BRAVE in my head. So taking a giant leap of faith in an act of bravery for Christ I am going to Peru this summer to literally be the hands and feet of Christ! Nervous? Yes! Anxious? Yes! Excited? You bet! 

I will be traveling to Arequipa, Peru on July 30th, 2016 to serve with a small group from Daystar Church, and we will connect with a larger group through AIM (Ambassadors in Missions). From July 30th to August 6th I will be pouring out some love on the sweet kids and women in Arequipa, teaching skills, playing and showing them the love of the Lord. I will also be supporting the medical camps in the area for the parents and babies in the city. 

As I prepare for this wonderful opportunity God has placed in my lap, I'm reaching out for support. I'd love for your support as I head out to Peru! One of the ways you can help me is to pray for this trip, the ministry, and for me personally. Only with prayer support will I be able to bless these children and mommies in the orphanages I prepare for this wonderful opportunity God has placed in my lap. 
Yes, there are financial needs. The cost of the trip is $2,100 per person, which each team member is responsible to raise in gifts to our church.
