Prayer letter for my California mission trip summer 2012

April 3, 2012

Dear Friends,

“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!” Isaiah 52:7

I love you!  I am so enthusiastic to open an invitation for you to share in the fruit of what God is going to do in and through me as a student of New Hope Christian College. 
This summer I have an opportunity to embark on a mission trip to unite two home churches of my fellow classmates in California: Family Church of Praise {Northern Cali} and Living Stone Christian Fellowship {Southern Cali}.  The team will be splitting up, building the youth groups and leaders up through teaching and encouraging both churches, then uniting both churches for a camp retreat.  We hope to draw the youth and adults in a closer relationship to Jesus Christ, to encourage them in their journey with God and unite the Body of Christ for God’s Kingdom!

I am super excited to ask you to partner up with me and the California team in this upcoming mission trip.  First and foremost, I ask you to pray! Support us in prayer for the following areas: unity for our team and that our hearts will be completely led by God; for the people in California to be open to hearing from Him and for transformation of lives impacted by God.

If you are led to give financially, know that this also adds to your heavenly account!  Paul said in Philippians 4:17, “Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account.” As a team member, I must raise $1000 for our traveling expenses and ministry costs.  If you would like to financially support my trip, please write a check out to New Hope Christian College and in the memo write in “California Mission Trip”.  Please use the attached envelope to send cash or a check to New Hope Christian College; ATTN: Analyn Mattero; 290 Sand Island Access Road, Honolulu, Hawaii 96819, or you can had it to me personally.  Tax receipts are available upon request.  I appreciate any amount invested: either prayerfully or financially, and I’m excited to see how God is going to use us all to do great things in California this summer!

I get really excited when I think about building relationships with people that could be ushered into the Kingdom of God because of this upcoming assignment and I would love for you to be a part of it. I promise to share with you the remarkable things He will do in and through me. Please join me in the Kingdom work!

In Christ,
