I’m so excited for Month! I’m going to Country and I can’t wait. My trip is sponsored by Church or Organization. I’ll be traveling to Country with a team of #.
Our trip will involve many opportunities to share the love of God. We will be constructing a childcare facility, sharing one-on-one with students and teachers, and bringing in supplies for a local orphanage.
I’m praying that our team, myself included, will be able to have a positive impact.
I do need help in raising the necessary funds. The total cost of my trip is $_______. While I’m writing to you because we are friends, I don’t want to impose upon our friendship. If you can help in any way, I would be grateful. Because the full amount is due several weeks before departure, the earlier I hear from you, the better. It’s a lot of money to raise in a short time, but I have faith that it will come.
I’m asking all of my friends and family to pray for me and my team. This is the most important aspect. Thanks so much for considering my request and for whatever you can contribute. I really appreciate you so much.
