ethan shoforost IS PART OF PROJECT SERVE BELIZE 2017!
Dear Friends and Family,
This coming February I have been given the opportunity through Youth For Christ to go on Project Serve Belize. This upcoming mission trip will transport myself and ten other high school students from Saskatoon to Belmopan, Belize for twelve days.
Over the duration of our time in Belize we will be working with an orphanage that Youth For Christ is partnered with, the King’s Children’s home. Our time will be spent continuing the construction of their new facilities and spending lots of time playing with the 100+ orphans at the home.
To go on a trip like this requires a generous amount of support from the community. In light of this, I would like to invite you to be apart of this either through prayer, encouragement, or financial aid. It would be greatly appreciated if during this trip you would pray for or share words of encouragement with me and my team as this is an unfamiliar experience for the majority of us.
The financial aspect of this trip requires me to raise a total of $2800. I need to raise $1200 of these expenses by mid-December and the rest by February 1, 2017. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated and all of the money will go directly towards project expenses. My parents, Evan and Carla Shoforost, have decided that they will match any donations given to help support the mission. If donations exceed the set amount any extra will be incorporated into our mission; the more we raise the more we can help.
You can donate online easily and safely through CanadaHelps!
You can donate easily and safely online through the YFC website: www.yfcsask.com or by clicking on the link provided. Simply put my first name in the 'message' box if you would like to contribute to my trip. Donating online greatly reduces administration time and money, and you will instantly get your tax receipt. If you would prefer to write a cheque you can make it out to Youth for Christ and mail it to 1338 Ave B North, Saskatoon, SK S7L1G5. You will then receive your tax-deductible receipt at the end of the year.
Thank you for joining me on this amazing experience. I hope to learn and grow in many ways from the experiences I will encounter in Belize; through the work I do and the people I work with. If you have any questions about this upcoming mission please call me at (306) 491-8773.
