Dear Friends and Family,
How are you doing? I hope things are going well in your life and that God is blessing you in many ways.
As for myself, I am doing well, working as a teacher with special needs children. I have to say, in the beginning I was a bit hesitant, being that I have never worked in that area but I can’t express how blessed I am to be able to work with those precious children. As some of you may be aware, I am a Christian. Lately I have been really involved with wanting to help others and share the gospel. I believe that God has now opened an opportunity for me to do this. This summer I am feeling called to do some serving and exploring outside of the U.S.
I would like to share with you a ministry opportunity that has come available to me. I am hoping to have the opportunity to go with a group of adults to Dominican Republic this summer, June 2013. This one week mission trip will be reaching out to those living in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. While there, our group will work with kids in an orphanage home, a women center, do some building, provide food to individuals who live in the city dump yards, and a variety of other things. Most of all I want to go to show others who Christ is, in my life and to also learn about the people in Dominican Republic and their culture. If you would like to know more about this organization or the people being served please check out this website, http://bcove.me/5fsl9gxy or www.itsyourmission.com
While God has opened up a door for me to develop a greater heart of compassion for his people around the world, the exciting part is that you would be able to share in this compassion with me in several ways. First, you can help by praying for me and my fellow team mates to be able to experience this amazing opportunity in serving others. We will also need prayers that our financial needs will be met. The organization that we are going through makes all the arrangements but we will need to cover for things such as supplies, airfare, food, and lodging. The cost of the trip is an average of $2,225 per person.
Another way you can be involved is to help provide that financial support. Would you consider sponsoring me with a small donation? If you know me, you know that I am not the type of person that asks for anything. This is me stepping out of my comfort zone and reaching out to help me reach my goal. Whether you feel led to contribute financially, through prayer, or both, all of your support is appreciated!!!!
I am looking forward and hoping we can make a difference in a child’s life by giving them hope through the word of God. “Making a difference one child at a time.”
Love,
Blenda Herrera
