Nassau Mission Trip
Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,
In August of 2018 and July of 2019, my wife and I were given an awesome opportunity to serve the saints and community in Nassau, Bahamas. The church in Nassau and the community was so impacted by the faith we communicated through Christ and the works he allowed us to do; that they invited us to come back. In July 2020, my wife and I will once again, depart on a mission trip to Nassau, Bahamas for seven days. We will be going to minister to the people in that region, do a wide range of activities like traveling a long distance to spread the gospel, Vacation Bible School and assist Minister Andrew Major and the Central Church of Christ in their efforts to show the love of Christ. This will be done by serving the community through feedings, assisting with medical services, training teachers in the education department, helping at-risk youth, assisting with family reunification and provide a financial donation to their church.
We are considering this trip as not only an outreach to impact people for Christ and to be a resource but also an opportunity for us to grow in our faith as a Christian and build long-lasting relationships abroad. We are looking forward to this challenge, taking steps of faith and receiving the rewards in our spiritual growth/walk. But it is the opportunity to travel abroad, spread the gospel, serve others for our Lord Jesus Christ that really excites us, that gives us the greatest joy.
We are grateful for the opportunity to serve and share the love of Jesus and we ask you to join us in this ministry. We are seeking your support, financial support, and prayers for this mission trip. We want to personally raise $2,000 by June 1, 2020. Any amount would be great, but if you would be willing to contribute $20, $50, $100 or more, it would really help us to reach our goal! If you are able to assist with this trip financially, I would ask that you forward any donation in the enclosed envelope with a check or money order payable to Lehigh Valley Church of Christ with “(Derrick Bean)- Missions” in the memo line. Your donation can be mailed to me at 3400 Brodhead Road, Bethlehem, PA 18020. This mission trip is being funded entirely through donations and every penny collected will be used to directly benefit the outreach to help the Bahamian people. Please be a part of this awesome opportunity, we know you will be blessed because of it.
I thank you in advance for your prayers and your financial support. May God bless you richly!
In Christ’s Service,
Minister, Lehigh Valley Church of Christ
