Please also check with the Mission committee of your congregation about any needed scholarship support for your trip, and about potential contributions to the construction materials for the home construction for pastor Gloria. See her pictured in the center in the white patterned dress. (Below, see the Tierra Prometida church) If your church can help financially, please have your pastor or mission chair be in touch with me by February 10.
Let’s aim to have definite commitments from everyone who will be traveling with us by February 10. Hopefully, many of us can confirm our participation (and arrange the least expensive possible flights) well before that deadline. If you want to come but won’t know for sure by then, it may still be possible, but it’s likely the flight prices will go up significantly.
Please don’t hesitate to call, text (479-200-6473), or email me or Leigh (479-601-1437) with any questions or concerns that may arise.
And let’s all hold this wonderful opportunity for cross-cultural and spiritual growth, partnership, learning, and service in our daily prayers.
