Dear family and friends,

I am writing this letter to let you know of an amazing experience that has come my way through Saskatoon Youth For Christ. In February of 2019 myself and 9 other high school students will get the opportunity to travel to Belmopan, Belize for twelve days with a group called Project Serve. This will be my first mission trip and am very excited to share this experince with you.

While we are staying in Belize we will get the chance to spend time at the King’s Children’s Home. The King’s Children's Home is where we will be spending a good chunk of our time, located just outside Belmopan. There are currently 40+ staying at the orphanage, during our stay we will be doing a work project which is helping with the development of the land around the home. We will also get the chance to spend time with the kids and play with them.

This trip will require support from friends, family and the community and I would like to invite you to be apart of out team and experience this amazing mission alongside myself and our Project Serve team. Whether it is with a prayer, encouragement or making a donation anything you are willing to help with is appreciated more than you even know. I would also appreciate it if you would pray for myself as well as the team before, during and after our trip.

Financially for this trip I need to raise a total of $2800. To help with fundraising I have created a raffle for a brand new IPhone X 256g, tickets for the raffle are $10.00 each. I will be selling 300 tickets total and the draw date is December 14, 2018. All the proceeds made will go towards the expenses of the trip and any extra money fundraised will go towards out projects at King’s Children's Home. If you are interested in purchasing a ticket for yourself or know of anyone who may be interested in buying one feel free to contact me! My email is emann160@gmail.com or text me at (306) 381-7934 for more information! Payment can be done with cash, cheque or e- transfer, whatever works best for you. I will also be accepting donations of school supplies and anything that someone is will to donate to bring to the children's home, I will be bringing it with me on the trip.

You can also donate online by clicking on the Donate Now button below and writing my name in the comment section , it is safe and easy. By donating online you will get a tax receipt instantly. If a check is preferred you can make it out to Youth For Christ and mail it to 1338 Ave B North Saskatoon, SK S7L 1G5. You will then receive your tax-deduction receipt at the end of the year. Just a note, all raffle ticket sales need to be given to me directly, and I will hand them into YFC once the draw is made. Any online donations will go straight to Youth For Christ towards my trip.

Thank you for the support and encouragement regarding the trip. The support appreciated more than you will ever know. Thank you for joining me on this journey of learning and growing with the work I will do in Belize and the things I will learn and experience. Please do not feel pressured to donate a prayer or a box of crayons will help us with our trip. If you have any questions regarding the mission or the raffle please do not hesitate to either email, text or call me!
