Hi there! I hope you’re having a great
spring and lookingforward to an awesome summer. I’m wrapping up my
last semester at MCC, and it’s hard to believe that I’m
almost done with four years of school! As I get ready to
graduate, I’ve been preparing for my next step in life,
but it’s not what you may think – I’m going to China! I’ve
joined a ministry called Campus Target, and in August I’ll
be on a plane headed overseas for the fall semester. I’m
writing to let you know about my plans, and ask if you’d
consider partnering with me as I share the Gospel in
graduates from America went to China and found thousands of students who wanted to practice their
English, but almost no one who knew Jesus. During that year, they played basketball, ate meals, taught
about the Bible, and shared the Gospel. By the time they left China, all of their friends gave their life to
Jesus, and after that experience they came back home and started Campus Target. Since then, CT has
sent 200 young people to China, and over one thousand Chinese students have chosen to follow Christ.
Con and after the first session the speaker announced that there was a free pizza lunch after so I was
immediately interested. However what I did
not know was that it wasn’t just people
having pizza together but it was about a
ministry called Campus Target. After some
time of socializing; one guy named Josh got
up and started talking about what Campus
Target is, what they do, and how they make
the trip to China happen. As Josh was
finishing, something in my heart was like,
“this is the perfect opportunity for you; you
should go.” So I went for it.
When I get to China in August I’ll be a campus evangelist, and I’ll work with a small team of people to
reach one of that country’s top universities. We’ll make friends, experience Chinese culture, and share
our lives with our new friends – and all the time we’ll share our hope in Jesus and invite them to follow
Him. For those who make that decision, we’ll help them grow in their relationship with God and plug
them into a growing house church.
As I get ready to start this adventure, I’d like to ask for your help to make it happen. The cost for my
semester of ministry is $9,000, which includes everything I’ll need in China: airfare, training, health
insurance, apartment rent, meals, and more. Would you consider giving a financial gift to make my trip
possible? Specifically, would you pray about giving a $100-$500 gift toward my expenses? Of course, I’m
grateful for any gift you choose to give, and thank you for your generosity.
Also, I know that I’m stepping into an important time of ministry, and I’d like to build a team of people
who would commit to pray for me while I’m gone. I hope to share the Gospel with dozens of Chinese
college students this semester, and I know I’ll face challenges along the way. Would you commit to pray
for me regularly until I get back in January? If you would like to pray for me and receive my updates
while I’m gone, please include your email on the enclosed card, or send me an email at
Thank you so much for your support and care for me. I’m blessed as you consider giving and praying for
me. I hope you’re doing well, and thank you so much!
