Pray for Carolyn's Mission Trip to Peru!
Update from Carolyn: "I leave for Peru in just 4 weeks (Sept. 2-11) . I'll be on a team of 13 from Wheels for the World serving alongside Peruvian volunteers to distribute wheelchairs and share the Gospel in 2 cities, Piura and Tumbes. (As a seating specialist, I will work with recipients and mechanics to make sure each person gets a chair that is just right for him or her.) I will have a pretty intense schedule but I can’t wait to see how God works!
Please join me in this mission through your prayer support. This week, you can pray for our travel and for our team. (I will be flying from Daytona to Atlanta, where I will meet up with other team members, then flying to Lima, and from Lima to Piura.) Pray for our health, stamina, and team unity. Thank you and God bless you!"
August Mission: Crates for Ukraine
In response to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, Mission to the World has organized a massive humanitarian relief effort, and New Hope will take part by gathering supplies and sending a small courier team to escort them to Poland at the end of August. (Click here for the Crates for Ukraine website.)
MTW is asking for three different types of supply crates: 1. Basic Care/Hygiene, 2. Basic Meds, and 3. Wound Care (most needed) (click the link for the lists). We are also raising funds for both supply purchase and to cover travel costs. The deadline for gathering supplies is 8/21.
We may also have a packing day, for those who are organizationally gifted! For more info, see Melinda or Lyndsey C., email email@example.com.
