Dear Friends and Family,
Hi! I hope that God is doing as many wonderful things in your life as He is in mine. Over Spring Break I was able to go serve with my youth group at Mission Arlington where we led bible schools with children from 2 different apartment complexes. I basically helped lead the entire VBS as a group leader. I also got to spread the gospel with puppets!
I want to share with you a ministry opportunity that God has presented to me again this year. From July 18 through July 28 God has offered me the chance to go to Brazil with P70 Ministries and my church, Shady Oaks Baptist, to reach out and spread the gospel to the Brazilian people in Montes Claros. We will be putting on Bible School for the children; using songs, skits and youth programs to reach the teens and doing repairs, landscaping, building projects as needed in the community. Ultimately, we are there to help plant churches.I’ve enjoyed mission work and working with children on my past trips to Brazil and love the people there. The Brazilian people are very friendly and open to hearing from us, so it will be fun to make sure that they know our Savior, Jesus Christ. We plan to open our hearts to show them Jesus’ unconditional love, compassion and the One True Hope! One very good example of how I’ve seen this accomplished in the past is going to Brazil last year. I led a little boy to Jesus and it changed my life and his.
Please pray for safe journeys, good health, and that our mission is a success, seeing lives change and churches begin! I am working hard to raise my own funds for this trip, which costs $1500. If you feel led to help with those funds, I would really appreciate it. I’ve included a self-addressed, stamped envelope for your convenience. Please make your check payable to Shady Oaks Baptist Church and attach a note that says its for me and the Brazil mission trip. Mail to: 1336 Cavender Dr, Hurst, TX 76053.

Thank you so much for reading this letter all the way to the end. I am grateful for my friends and family and I’m thankful that you’ve supported me.
