Dear Mom and Dad,
I’d like to say something cute and catchy here…but instead, I’ll just get to the point of why I’m sending you this message.
Danielle and I will be going on our 1st mission trip that will travel to Ecuador on November 2nd, 2013 to invest into the lives of children and families living in abject poverty.
God has touched our hearts and opened our eyes to the harsh realities and living conditions that no child should ever have to endure. Yet, they do. The children that we will be caring for ‘endure’ in the most heinous and dire circumstances.

We’ve witnessed firsthand the impact that can be made from a mission trip like this. An impact that can change the trajectory of a child or family’s life. When you give someone hope, when you let them know that they are loved and that they matter…the vicious cycle of poverty can be broken.
I’m writing to you because we are asking you to partner with us. Partner with us to help these children. There are multiple ways you can do this. First and foremost, you can pray for us. This will be a very challenging journey for everyone involved. Pray for our team’s safety. Pray for the children in Ecuador that we will be visiting and pouring our hearts and resources into. Pray for the children and loved ones that will be staying at home while we make this journey. Pray for their protection, health, and reassurance while we are away. ...
