A Call for Help

Several months ago, I shared with y'all that I had the opportunity to take over our church's Global Medical Outreach (GMO) ministry.  I wanted to take a little bit of time and update you on what's been going on over the past few months because there has been a flurry of activity:

  • Planning decisions made: 237,498
  • Emails sent: 1,267,649
  • 1 Scouting trip to Ecuador planned, cancelled by Delta, and then subsequently rescheduled over this past occur Memorial Day weekend
  • Conversations: 467
  • Specific answers to prayer: Countless
So, a little bit tongue and cheek with the above list except the cancellation of the scouting trip - that actually happened. And except the countless specific answers to prayer - which will be likely be another blog post because it is so cool to see the reality of specific prayers answered.  But I say all of that to highlight that there has been a ton of activity and that it is time and energy consuming to be planning a mission effort across the globe.  However, I am happy to report that we have a full team of clinicians, pharmacists, and volunteers committed and we are right on target for our trip in July!

And this is where I need your help. Trips like this require financing and I need to raise $2000.00.  This amount will help cover trip expenses as well as provide funds to help cover the cost of some of the medication and supplies that we need.  And of course, if together we raise more than the $2000.00 then the extra amount will be applied to our general GMO fund to offset costs for subsequent ministry and outreach efforts.  It will not be wasted!

$2000.00 is a lot of money.  It is daunting to me to try and raise that much.  But I know that I serve a big God who delights to answer prayer and who delights to see his gospel work advance!  So let's do this!

To donate, please make a check payable to Warren Baptist Church and put Ecuador in the "memo" line.  Then download the form HERE and fill out the bottom portion.  Place the check and the bottom portion of the form in an envelop and send it to the address listed on the form which should be:

Warren Baptist Church
3203 Washington Road
Augusta Ga, 30907

Thank you so much in advance for your support.  This kind of effort cannot happen without your help.  Also, stay tuned for ways in which you can pray for our team.  Finally, if you would like more specific information, stories, updates about Ecuador you can follow our church's Ecuador mission blog.
