Hi everyone! I just wanted to post an fundraising update! Thank you so much to everyone who has already donated and for the amazing support and generosity that I have experienced! Although I have reached this fundraising goal, I am still happily accepting donations as anything over my goal is going to support Impact Ecuador!

Hi, my name is Kaitlyn and I am a first year University student. I am excited to share with you that from May to August 2019, I will be working as a Site Host intern alongside International Teams Canada and Youth World, a missionary organization in Quito Ecuador. I will be primarily working in the community of Carmen Bajo, a poor neighbourhood in Quito. My focus will be with the children and youth in the community and helping out short term missions teams that come through Carmen Bajo in the summer.  I am extremely excited to have this opportunity to minister to and make a difference in the lives of people living in Carmen Bajo.

Previously, I have been a part of two March Break youth missions trips to Carmen Bajo through Creekside Church. These trips have been life-changing. While I was there, I was able to be a part of God’s work in Ecuador and see how He was also working in the lives of the people at Carmen Bajo. Each of these trips allowed me to grow closer to God, and share my faith more openly with others. I also began to have the desire to serve both in my community and around the globe. After my second trip to Ecuador, I felt moved by God to continue ministering in this country and I decided to apply for this internship. I believe that God has a plan for me in these months that I will be spending in Ecuador.

For this internship, I need to raise $ 5,100 which will go towards my flights, accommodations, food, and other expenses. I am looking for people to be able to support me in any way possible, whether through prayer or by sponsoring me financially.  I am immensely grateful for any financial contribution possible, no matter the size. 

iTeams Canada is a Christian charity working to end poverty by providing education and the necessities of life to vulnerable people around the world. iServe Volunteers work alongside local leaders in implementing communities to  add velocity to the work of these leaders as they change lives.

Please donate today so that we can continue to break the cycle of poverty around the world!

P.S. “We are not okay, until we are all okay.”
