“Beyond the Mat” Mission Trip Kitale, Kenya February 9 – 21, 2018 Beyond the Mat: We are yogis on a mission to empower orphans thru the modality of Holy Yoga. Thru mind, body and spirit, we share the life changing love of Jesus so that they may know their value in His story. On this trip, we will be traveling to Kitale, Kenya to work alongside the staff at Precious Kids Center, a home and school for special needs childen; Discover to Recover, a home for children infected and/or affected by HIV/Aids; and Gilgal Secondary School, a high school originally started to educate childen from local refugee camps.
Mark 16:15 "He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation."
March 2017 Mission Trip This spring, two of my daughters and I have an exciting opportunity to serve the Lord on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic sponsored by my church, Grace EFC of Allen, TX. Currently we are building a team of 15 people, both adults and children, to participate in the 8-day trip. We plan to fly to the Dominican Republic on March 4th. Our ministry focus is two-fold during this trip. One is to work at Smiling Faces School which is dedicated to serving children with special needs. We will conduct teacher training as well as minister to the physical and spiritual needs of the students and parents. Additionally, our team will do other projects and outreach in partnership with a local church in Barahona. Sponsors from our church will accompany our team and provide ministry oversight. Specifically I have been give permission to offer Holy Yoga in the evening after our other service projects have ended to the women we will be serving on this trip. Holy Yoga is an experiential worship created to deepen people's connection to Christ. Our sole purpose is to facilitate a Christ honoring experience that offers an opportunity to believers and non-believers alike to authentically connect to God through His Word, worship, and wellness. Holy Yoga exists to carry the gospel to the ends of the earth through the modality of yoga. One of the ways you can help us is to pray for the trip, the ministry we will perform, and for me and my daughters personally. Only with prayer support will we be able to bless the children and support my team. Yes, there are financial needs. The cost of the trip is $850, excluding airfare, which each team member is encouraged to raise in gifts for our church. We are also responsible for our own airfare for the trip. Gifts to the church, with an expression of a preference for my trip expenses (Harris family), are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Please pray with us that the funds to cover our expenses will be provided.
