Dear Family,

It is crazy to think that I’ll be graduating this year. These past couple years have been so fulfilling and so glorifying. The Lord has blessed me with so many tools and resources of his work and love. As many of you know, I have been working at A Little Bit Hippy for going on three years now. Working here has shown me that God has made me a lover. I love that each person that walks through the door has their own story to share. Each person has their own battles they’ve won. Each person has given me the opportunity to be a light in their lives. Sometimes that is just by listening to them or giving them a smile, but every day I am shown that God is at work in my life in every aspect of it.  Loving is my soul purpose and I believe that I’ve been blessed with my environment to show others Christ’s love.

During these past four years I have definitely been figuring out what I’d like to do with my life. Through many tough decisions and options I have decided that I’d be honored to be a missionary. God has put so many people in my life that have showed me that becoming a missionary and one with the Lord’s people would be an extremely grounding experience. I’m so thankful that I have been blessed to grow in my faith and character with such a wonderful family of love.   Part of my vision is that through Christ, the Lord’s people will know peace. Love is the strongest action ever and it’s got an even stronger force behind it. God has so many plans and missions for us on this Earth. I am honored to be a part of this huge plan. I am grateful to be part of this huge love. I am blessed to be part of this HUGE God.

This summer I have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica for a love journey. On July 4th, a team and I will head out to Costa Rica to love on the people. Our team will be teaching kids the gospel through Vacation Bible School, feeding the hungry in the streets of San Jose, and worshiping in multiple churches throughout the towns. Mark 16:15 “And He said then, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” 1 John 4:19, “We love, because he first loved.” Psalm 37: “Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.” The scripture speaks a lot about going out into the world and sharing the gospel along with putting ALL of our faith in the Lord. This should be our vision in going into the mission’s field. I am extremely humbled and excited to be a part of this trip. Last year the experience sent me home with a new view from Christ’s perspective. The Costa Rica mission trip 2013 gave me a new view of not only cultural differences, but also gave me the opportunity to learn how to communicate better through the living word.

The trip is being funded entirely through donations and by those of us going on the mission trip.   I am excited to serve on this trip, and I am asking you to join me. I am asking for your support and prayers for this trip. The cost of this trip is $1600.00. This cost covers airfare, housing, food, and supplies for those that we are serving. If you are able to help me with my expenses.  All gifts are tax deductible. I’d like to thank you ahead for all of your support and prayers.                                                                                                    

With great love,

Kayla Rice
