Dear friends and family,

In February of 2018, myself and 11 other youth from the Saskatoon area are heading to Belmopan, Belize with Youth for Christ Saskatoon as a part of an initiative called Project Serve. 

Project Serve works very closely with the King’s Children’s Home in Belize and we will be partnering with them while we are there.  There are 65+ living at the orphanage and we will be continuing construction on a new facility for the children of the home.  We also get to spend time with the kids daily which will allow us to get to know them, make friendships, and lasting relationships. 

As I prepare for this trip I am looking for spiritual support from my community through prayer as well as encouragement and/or financial support.  Above all else, I feel like I need prayer the most. Please prayer for my team and me as we prepare our hearts, as we travel, and as we experience what is waiting for us in Belize.  This trip will be easier for me, knowing that I have a team at home praying for me. 

For this trip I also need substantial financial support.   Each team member has a goal of raising $2800.  The first $1200 needs to be raised by December and the remaining by February 1, 2018.  To reach my goal I am asking for money donations and no matter how big or small the donation is, anything helps and is greatly appreciated. The more we raise as a team, the more we can help the community at King’s Children’s Home.  If I raise above and beyond $2800, all extra money goes directly to support the mission.

You can donate easily and safely online through the YFC website by clicking on the Donate Now button below. Donating online greatly reduces administration time and money, and you will instantly get your tax receipt.  If you would prefer to write a cheque 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-deductible receipt at the end of the year.

Thank you in advance for your support and for taking the time and consideration to partner with me on this mission.  I am excited to see what I will learn and how I will grow in my faith through this mission and opportunity to serve. If you have any questions regarding this trip please email me at taivassell21@gmail.com.
