Dear Friend,
I am very excited to have the opportunity to go on a short-term missions trip during this coming summer with my church. We will be leaving on July 29th and will return August 5th . We will be joining with Coastal Missions and Praying Pelican Missions.
This year we will be ministering in Jamaica. While in Jamaica, we will be involved in building two schools, visiting an orphanage and an elderly home, leading children in a Vacation Bible School, helping out with a sports ministry, and evangelizing to all who come across our paths.
Jamaica is a country with amazing people who unfortunately have many needs. A disproportionate number of children in Jamaica are orphans. In Jamaica, poverty is rampant, Christian materials and even general schooling, along with the people who teach them, are scarce. Some villages are without these resources, or only have damaged churches, schools, homes, and so forth. The needs in Jamaica are practically innumerable. 1 John 3:17 says, “But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?”
I am so excited to be a small part of bringing Christ’s love to the people of Jamaica, and I realize while I am helping bless the Jamaican people, God will be abundantly blessing me in return.
I would like to invite you to partner with me on my missions experience financially and/or through prayer. The total cost of this trip is $1,420, which I need to have raised by May 1, 2012. I am also seeking prayer partners to help pray for our group’s safety, the hearts of the Jamaican people, and our effectiveness as a ministry to these people. Would you please consider partnering with me in this opportunity?

Thank you in advance for your support.
Love in Christ,
Rebecca Burton
