Sorry for the mass e-mail but I wanted to tell you all about my mission trip to
As part of my course requirements at Drew Theological school we have to have go on a cross cultural trip. I have chosen to go to
This particular trip happens to be a United Methodist Volunteer in
I have attached a list of items that we are brining with us to the orphanages and medical clinics that we will be visiting on the trip. The great thing is that we aren't just sending this stuff to some warehouse somewhere or to some organization where we hope it will get to the people that need it. I will be physically bringing the contributions to the facilities. If you can not donate the actual items and would like to send or give a monetary donation so that I may purchase items to contribute that would be great too.
I know it is the holidays and there are a lot of opportunities to give. If can not participate in this I fully understand.
Please feel free to pass this opportunity on to others who you think may wish to participate.
I will be leaving for the trip on Jan 6th. I will be willing to pick any items you may wish to contribute or you may send them to me.
Thank you so much in advance!
Peace and Blessing,
Here is the wish list:
