I am a freshman at Francis Marion University in SC. Since my first week in the dorm I've been involved in the BCM campus ministries. It has really made a great impact on my walk with Christ. As a result, I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to Africa on a mission trip. I feel strongly that God has called me to step out of my comfort zone so I have committed to being obedient to what he has called me to do.
Ephesians 4:1 MSG, "I want you to get out there and walk-better yet, run! -on the road God has called you to travel".
We will be traveling to Ethiopia in May-June 2013 to connect with Muslim college students from the other side of the world and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We will be working alongside career missionaries in the work they are doing. Needless to say I'm very excited and quite nervous.
I need you help in two areas:
First and foremost I'm asking for your support through prayer. Please pray that the people I will be coming in contact with will be receptive to the Gospel of Christ. Pray that God will work in the lives of our teams and keep us united. Also pray and see how God would have you support this mission effort.
Finally, the cost of this mission trip is $2,500 not including passport, immunizations, and personal costs. I have already paid the $250 deposit with savings from my job as a waitress. I am working and sacrificing in other areas to make this trip a reality but am looking for sponsors to help offset the costs. No amount is too small and every dollar will be greatly appreciated.
I know this will change my life and I hope will touch others. Thank you in advance for your support! Courtney Paige Sturgill
