Senegal Support Letter 09’

July 12, 2009072409_1812_SenegalSupp1.png

Dear Family and Friends,

We are writing to you because, this fall, God has provided us with an opportunity to serve as a short-term mission team in Senegal, sponsored by Windham Baptist Church.

Departing September 16, our team of 7 will spend two weeks living and working alongside Corey and Katie Garrett, a missionary couple that our church loves. We will be helping their ministry to Wolof teens by serving a camp ministry in Ngaparaou. While there we will take on some physical projects for the camp, as well as interact with teens through sports and crafts. Next we plan to head to Kaffrine, the place where Corey and Katie and the family have been ministering for the last seven years, experiencing the people and places where they serve.

We are writing to ask if you’d consider praying for us and for this trip. Please pray for our ability to communicate through translators. The language barrier can be very challenging. Please also pray for God to give us strength.

The pace of our schedule will be great but with your prayers, our impact will be greater!

In addition to prayer support, we each need to raise $2,000 to participate in the mission. Half of those funds are due August 12, 2009 and the balance is due by Sept. 2, 2009. Would you please consider helping us financially? A gift of any amount will be greatly appreciated. These contributions will go towards our flight and in-country expenses.

Your contributions are tax deductible when you make your checks payable to Windham Baptist Church.
Please do not write our names on the check, as this will void that tax break. Rather, write “Senegal 09” in the memo line and place your check in the offering plate with your response card or mail your check along with the response card, placed in the stamped, self-addressed envelope enclosed with this letter to:

Windham Baptist Church

973 River Road

Windham, Maine 04062

For more details, please feel free to call Windham Baptist Church at 207.591.4607.

Thank you so much for considering partnering with us on this journey. We’ll be sure to keep you informed as we prepare for take-off.

In the Family of Christ,

Don Carrier, Jacob Coldwell, Bethany Dunfee, Tyler Dunphy, Mark Gedicks, Tom & Sally Tindall
