I cannot wait to tell y’all about this!! Y’all get to help us raise money for our son’s mission trip this summer to Ireland! We’ve known about this for a little while but I wanted to make sure I had all my ducks in a row before I wrote about it.
Here’s how to support this epic mission trip!
My oldest is now old enough to get to go on the High School Summer Mission trip with our church. We attend Henry Baptist Church. I’d love for you to read about this trip so I’ve uploaded the letter from our youth pastor here.
Every single human on this planet need to hear about Jesus. This is the reason we are all still breathing! We are all called by God to either SEND OR GO. Which one are you doing??
Now that you’ve read the letter, here are the ways you can be a part of this EPIC MISSION TRIP! If the Lord is leading you to help in a way laid out below, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know so I can be looking for it.
- Donations – This is obviously the most direct way to help with this mission trip. We call Henry Baptist Church our home. You can mail a check made out to HBC. Send me an email and I’ll tell you what to write on the check and where to mail it. OR you can give online with his name in the memo line (otherwise they won’t know where to credit the money) through Securegive.
- Discount Cards – Our youth group will very soon be selling discount cards that are good for local services and restaurants. They will be $10 each and he will be able to credit at least $7 toward his trip from each sale! They make great teacher gifts too! Send me an email at email@example.com and we will connect!
- Homeschooling Resources – Visit Enrichment Studies – Fine Arts and more for homeschool families is a site and fellow entrepreneur has graciously agreed to extend a special coupon code to our readers for this project!! From now til the end of March, if you enter code MISSION20 and make a purchase off her site, you get 20% off and she will donate a portion of your purchase toward his trip costs!! How awesome is that?! Please go support this awesome resource!
- Zaycon Fresh – This company is a great resource for great food for your family! They will donate $15 for each new customer that orders from them toward his trip costs. You need to use this unique link so they will know where to send the donation! https://www.zayconfresh.com/fundraiser/simpleclassiclife
- Amazon Shopping Page – Amazon has a program that Simple Classic Life participates in and when you shop through them, they pay us a commission. From now through June, we are donating our commissions to his trip costs. You can either click on the graphic below or you can click on the amazon link over on the right side of the page.
He has been working hard in people’s yards. This week, he sold a bunch of stuff out of his room. He’s also going to be selling his GPS running watch since he got an upgraded one for Christmas. We know that the Lord already has this trip funded. We just need to teach him to be diligent.
The Bible clearly is in favor of working hard.
2 Thessalonians 3:10 – For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat.
So, how will you participate in this trip? We can’t wait to meet new friends during this venture! If you find you are unable to help in any of these ways, we ask that you share this post as much as you can! Thank you!
