I love birthdays (and mind is just around the corner)! Celebrating with friends, gifts, a reason to get out and have some fun. Love, love, love!
Something feels different this year. I don’t mind celebrating my birthday and having fun with friends but I want this celebration to serve a deeper purpose than my living another year. That’s why I’ve decided to dedicate my birthday to raise funds for our mission team. I will be leading a trip to Trujillo, Peru this June. I know there are many who want to go but they need a little extra help getting there. That’s where we come in!
Many of our team members are students who are on their own for the first time in their life. Working, going to school and paying bills. Yet, they have a heart for the people in Trujillo, Peru. Some, students who went last year and made a special bond with the people of the barrios in Trujillo and just can’t wait to return!

Save the date! March 1, Location TBD. 5 – 8 p.m. Come meet our team, have some fun, food and drink and maybe even a few surprises.
Here is a brief highlight video of our team. I can’t watch it without being overwhelmed with emotion and happy memories of our experience together.
I’ll be pulling the details of the event together over these next few weeks and my hope is that everyone (near and far) can get involved by sending their donation by check or debit or credit card.
Do you have ideas on how our team can raise funds this year? We’d love to hear from you!
