A month ago the Missions Team introduced the AMOS partnership to our church family at the quarterly business meeting. Three Sundays later, the congregation was invited to help the Team define this partnership and support Dava Cooper’s exploratory visit to AMOS in Nicaragua through a free will offering at lunch. Since that time, the Missions Team has taken your feedback and is developing a framework for this partnership—more exciting news to come!
As noted at both of those meetings, Dava Cooper will be headed to Nicaragua in July for an exploratory visit with AMOS. This trip will cost approximately $2500; this only covers her travel and lodging—no incidentals and none of her time. At the luncheon prior to the meeting three weeks ago, we raised $500. Therefore, we still need your help.
Within the next week we will be posting a “Prayer Map” to help defray Dava’s expenses and send her with written prayers and words of encouragement for her trip. A map of Nicaragua will be posted near the Welcome Table with envelopes and pins. Please consider taking one of those envelopes and writing a short prayer or words of encouragement to Dava. If you are able, we also would appreciate any financial donation be included in your envelope. Of course you can also give online via Breeze (select “Nicaragua Mission” in the drop-down menu) or send a check to the church (add “Nicaragua Mission” in the memo line). If you are financially unable to give, we would still ask you to add your words of encouragement in your envelope and pin it to the map! Let’s fill that map with prayers for safety for Dava and words of love for her to take to the families that AMOS assists in Nicaragua!
Thanks in advance for your love, support and prayers.
