Hello, my name is Amanda Burrier. I am 15 years old and I have been blessed with the opportunity to join my church, Southeast Christian, on a mission trip to Haiti through an organization called Mission of Hope.
Going on this trip is incredibly important to me because I can provide knowledge of God and the love of God to people who may not have been fortunate enough to learn about it yet. My passion is to help other kids and teenagers find the joy of knowing Christ on a personal level. I will strive to achieve the title of being a kingdom worker by leading others into the arms of God, and teaching about his everlasting love and forgiveness. Romans 5:8 states "You are loved more than you will ever know by someone who died to know you." I want to carry that verse with me on my trip to empower others to know of the great sacrifice God made for everyone.
This trip to Haiti is $1500 and to show my commitment, I want to take the responsibility of raising money myself through donations instead of asking my parents to pay for it. I am in prayer asking God to touch the lives of those He would have help me with a contribution to my trip. Any amount would be so greatly appreciated. I am also asking everyone to shower prayers my way, because I would like God's words and love to flow through me as I am in this third world country. I am thankful for every donation, and for every prayer to help support my trip. God bless!
This team of 22 from Southeast's Next Generation youth will be heading to Haiti March 22-29, 2014 to serve alongside Mission of Hope. The team will be partnering with the village of Source Matelas, and the trip program could include painting houses, a building project, working in the school and sharing the Gospel. The team will also spend time in the orphanage on the mission working with the kids and sharing the Gospel with them.
As an organization following Jesus Christ, Mission of Hope exists to bring life transformation to every man, woman, and child in Haiti. Their desire is to serve the nation of Haiti and to see lives changed. Their passion is to see the hopeless find hope through Jesus Christ, and empower future generations through education to bring their country out of poverty.
Mission of Hope’s primary efforts are focused on church advancement, educational development, orphan care, health care and nutrition.
