Friends and Family,
I just wanted to let you know I have the opportunity to go on a short term mission trip to Norway. We will be working with Sean and Hanna Christie. Sean is a guy from Lubbock who has a heart for missions and left to Czech to become a missionary and got married to Hanna a Norwegian girl. They have been married a couple years now and now have 2 kids. They are now living in Trondheim, Norway where she is from. They have settled in and now want to start a church there in the community. Norway is majority atheists and not many Christians are in the area. They have a home group and we will be working with them praying for the foundation of the country and doing some local outreaches in their community. I’ve always had the desire to do missions work and now have a great opportunity. I’m so excited to visit the country, learn about the culture and more importantly grow the kingdom of God.
While on the trip we will spend the mornings doing construction work, the afternoons playing with and aiding children, and the evenings doing street ministry and revivals. There were only two of us chosen to go and I am completely humbled and honored!
The cost is approx $2,250 per person and each person is responsible for paying their own way. I’m excited to have the opportunity to serve and to minister, and I ask you to join me in the ministry. I am seeking your support and prayers for the trip.

Thank you for your support and am excited to share this experience with you.
His therefore Yours,
