Weʼve raised £15 to help the East Asia Summer Team (St. Ebbe's)
- Funded on Monday, 23rd September 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This summer, we as a team have committed to spending a few weeks in East Asia, where the Church is still working on reaching out to more people.
A part of working for God in this area means being flexible and adapting as we go. So far, we know that we will be working at events put on for university students and young professionals, giving them the opportunity to practice their English by discussing particular topics in groups. The "English Corners" will help us talk about topics which naturally lead into gospel based conversations.
We are praying that these conversations will also help us build relationships with the students who come, which will allow us to share our experiences of God with them during any of the free time.
Furthermore, through sessions put on by a local team, as well as through meeting local believers, we will learn about the local Church, what it is like to live for Christ there, and the joys and challenges of being involved in Christian work overseas. We hope we will also be an encouragement to those we meet who work for God in the area!
How can you help?
We’re excited to witness how the gospel transcends cultures, borders, and languages - and we'd love to share our experiences with you!
To do that, we could use your support financially—for flights particularly, as well as accommodation and travel within the country. Our estimated cost is £1200 per person, so we’d like to start by trying to raise £4800.
We will also be needing your prayers, so please do pray that God will open the hearts of the young people whom we cross paths with, and help us be the light and salt in the area we are going to!
