Summary Request Below:
Friends and family, I received a call 3 days ago from a dear friend that I met in Texas after hurricane Harvey. The disaster has struck one of our most beautiful states in the country. parts of the island of Kauai were inundated by as many as 50 inches of rain in a 24 hour-period in mid-April, devastating parts of the island. Working with community leaders, church partners, and local volunteers, Samaritan’s Purse U.S. Disaster Relief team plans on continuing the response in remote areas of Kauai, where flooding triggered mudslides and stranded residents.
On May 27th- June 5th I will be flying out to the island to support those in need by assisting with mucking out homes, pressure washing, removing debris, and bringing the name of Jesus to those who might not have heard the word. My first trip with Samaritan’s purse was last September after hurricane Harvey hit Texas. That trip showed me that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. This trip is Not a vacation in any way shape or form. It will be just like Texas. Wake up 7 am- out on the field from 8:30-4:30 and repeat.
The time spent there will push me further into exploring my future in Evangelism and Discipleship. A large cost of the trip is being covered by Samaritan’s purse.(housing, food, etc.) This leaves me with the cost of transportation. The total cost of the trip is appx. $850.00 that includes a red-eye flight (cheapest I could find) and transportation to the base camp in a remote village outside of Kauai.
I Cannot do this without your help. For this trip, I need 2 kinds of support. 1. Prayer support. There is so much at risk with each one of these trips, people’s eternal life with Christ Jesus is the most important. 2. Financial support. Below are a few ways you can donate to the trip. Please please please let me know if you have any questions
I’m hoping to purchase the flight by May 7th i order to keep the cost low.
Thank you again
