So. God recently put it in my heart to team up with City for Christ International and take a month-long individual missionary trip to Mexico. I filled out the form online and sent it to the personnel in charge of individual short-term trips, and am waiting to hear back from them. Since I am positive it's going to happen, I plan to go in the month of June (probably the first Saturday of June to the first Saturday of July). Although it *is* in Tijuana, I recently spoke with a coordinator that had been on several 10-day trips down there in the past; the missionaries live in Tijuana and they stay up on the hillside, away from downtown; the past trips they have had, they have not seen or heard anything dangerous regarding the drug cartels that are rumored to be swarming the city. I would be working alongside the missionaries that are already set up and functioning.
If God really is who He says He is, and has the power to make true all the things He promised in His Word, there is no reason why I should not go.
That being said.......
The cost is supposed to be about $600-650 a month, depending on where I am set up for lodgings (either in the Emmanuel Orphanage or the CFCI Team House).
My drawing skills are meh (God's given me a gift but I kind of fail at practicing with it) but I really want to focus on, for these commissions, Bible verses and chapters in Photoshop. I am leaving the donation open instead of fixed. Even $1 helps.
Since I can't put the code for the Donate Now button in here, there is the link for the donation:www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?…
:bluebullet: Please Comment with your verse and your donation ID or whatever. I DO have school so I can't just be making random verses for people who don't end up donating anything :/
