KENDRA OLEKSUIK IS PART OF PROJECT SERVE BELIZE 2018!
Dear Friends and Family,
I am writing this letter to tell you that I am embarking on a mission trip in February of 2018! I will be traveling to Belmopan, Belize with 11 other high school students and 3 leaders to participate in something called Project Serve, organized by Saskatoon Youth for Christ. The trip takes place February 13th-27th.
In Belize we will be a direct partner with the King’s Children’s Home; which is an orphanage located in Belmopan. Our team will help with construction of a new facility for the home during the day, and spend time with the 65+ children residing in the home during the evening. We are fortunate to be able prosper the home’s land, and show the kids as much love as possible while we are with them.
An amazing trip like this must be backed up by support, and I would love for you to partner with me throughout the journey. You could participate by praying and encouraging, and/or giving financial support. Prayer would be greatly appreciated as this is a crazy opportunity and a step outside my comfort zone, which I am excited to take! If you could, please pray for the Lord to influence our hearts and our hands before, during and after our mission.
I need to raise a total of $2800 to travel to Belize. $1200 is due by December and the other $1600 is due by the end of January. Any donation would be appreciated, whether it is $5 or $500. All donations go directly to the Project Serve fund, and if we raise more than we need for the mission then the left over money is used in a way that still helps, like buying supplies that the orphanage needs that were not in the original budget.
If you are planning on donating, you can easily and safely do it online through the YFC website by clicking on the Donate Now button below. If you donate online it can greatly reduce administration time and money, and you will instantly get your tax receipt. If you prefer to write a cheque then you can make it our to Youth for Christ and mail it to 1338 Ave B North Saskatoon, S7L1G5. You will then receive your tax-deductible receipt at the end of the year.
I will also be hosting an individual steak night to raise money for the trip on November 26th. If you would like more information about that you can contact me, and I will be selling tickets in the near future! Thank you so much for taking part in this incredible experience with me! I’m excited to grow my faith through this trip and learn from the people in Belize and the service we do while we are there. If you have any comments or questions please feel free to call or text me at (306) 361-4413.
