Meagan's Request

Dear friends,

God has called me and ten other people from Georgia College and State University to go on a mission trip to Kenya, Africa. This trip will be filled with excitement and adventure all in God’s holy name! We are going with Far Reaching Ministries, which is based in California. This foundation is a Christian missions base that is primarily involved with the country of Africa. Currently, they are sending out missionaries to Sudan, Uganda and Kenya every year. As most know, the country of Africa is in dire need of the Word of God. With civil wars and the AIDS epidemic consuming their country, spreading the word of the healing power of God’s love is a very urgent call for Christians around the world.

In Kenya, we will be doing a variety of activities to help the people who live there. Our primary focus will be evangelism, but God will not stop there! We will be going to the city of Nairobi and the slums surrounding it to meet people and help them by doing service works and anything else that God calls us to do. In Matthew 5, God calls us to be “the light of the world”. We are praying that only God will shine through our lives on this trip. That each of us would leave our sense of “self” behind and leave only God’s truth, power and love to shine through each of us.

Since this trip will be in another country, the expenses will not be very cheap. Overall, the cost of going on the trip will be about $3000 dollars. I am writing this letter to you to ask for your help with the cost of this trip. Any donation will help spread the Word of God and the increase of His glorious kingdom. If you feel led to donate money to this trip after prayer and asking for God’s guidance, then I ask you to make the checks out to Wesley Foundation. In addition to giving to this trip, the money you donate is tax deductible. If you do not feel led to give a donation, your prayers will be greatly appreciated and equally helpful!

Pursuing His heart,
Meagan Shorey
