Dear Friends and Family,
Hey everybody! I hope you are doing well :). I want to tell you about an amazing God opportunity KSM has coming up in July. I will be going on a Ministry and Missions trip to the country of Ecuador July 5th through the 17th. I will be visiting two different cities. On Tuesday, July 5th, I will be traveling to Guayaquil, Ecuador to visit dear friends in the ministry- Bladimir and Ma Lorena de Santander. The Santanders have an amazing ministry there called “Transformados Guayaquil”. I will have the honor of preaching, teaching, and doing ministry with them while I am there. I am incredibly grateful to be offered this opportunity to share in the spread of the gospel with such an amazing ministry that is already doing so much to bring the love and healing of Jesus Christ to their city.
Then on Saturday afternoon, July 9th, I will be traveling by plane from Guayaquil to the city of Quito, Ecuador for the second part of my journey. Quito is the capital city of Ecuador and an estimated 2.5 million people live there. Upon arrival I will be joining a missions team from Front Range Community Church- a local church from here in Colorado. During this leg of the trip, we will be partnering with a church called “La Cosecha” (The Harvest). We have the incredible opportunity to serve with the church, participating in various projects at the church and in the community. We are including the youth of the church in hopes of having a double impact by mentoring them at the same time that we participate in service projects- one of which is helping them put a desperately needed new roof on their building. Other projects we are excited to lead include a vacation bible school, prayer night, and community family night.
In total, I will be in Ecuador for approximately 2 weeks and, as I’m sure you can imagine, it is very expensive to travel that far. I will be raising my own support and cannot do it without the help of you- my family and friends. The total amount I need to raise for my trip to Ecuador is $2875. This amount covers flights, lodging, and materials and supplies for the church we are helping in Quito. All donations are tax deductible.
The Lord has placed a very clear call on my life to ministry and missions in other countries and I am very excited to find out all that He has in store for me in Ecuador! We are all called to spread the gospel to the ends of the world; while some are called to serve with hands and feet, others are called to serve with their finances. Please consider helping to send me to Ecuador by donating today online or by check (made out to KSM). I am also asking that you would please keep me and KSM in your prayers as I continue to follow God’s call on my life to share and minister His heart to the nations.
I am eternally grateful for your financial donations and your continued prayers! I never take it for granted. I know that for many of you, sowing into this trip financially will be a true sacrifice for your family. I pray that God will bless you abundantly for all you do!
Of course I will be keeping all of you posted through social media so make sure to follow KSM on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and SnapChat(karlaw.ak)! I am believing that God is going to do great and mighty things for His Kingdom through this trip and I hope you will share and partner with me by sowing into it financially and with your prayers :).
