I don’t know how to start this blog post.
I don’t like asking for money.
I don’t like not being in control.
This summer, I am going on a mission trip to South Sudan.
I have never been on a mission trip before.
I have never raised money for a mission trip, either.
South Sudan is one of the poorest countries in the world.
About a year and a half ago, it was ravaged by civil war.
Before that, there were more wars.
There is still fighting in northern parts of South Sudan.
I am going to a safe, rural town in the southern part of South Sudan.
I am going with Seed Effect,
a Christian nonprofit that gives microfinance loans to entrepreneurs.
Many of these entrepreneurs are women.
They sell mostly agricultural goods.
A number of them have HIV.
To go to South Sudan, I have to raise $4,500.
To go to South Sudan, I am putting together a prayer team.
If you’re interested…
would you pray for me?
would you pray for the other volunteers?
would you pray for the South Sudanese?
would you donate to my trip?
