2013 has almost come to an end! This past year has been busy yet great year for me. I just finished up my fifth semester at Moody Bible Institute leaving me with only three semesters to go until I graduate with a degree in Children’s Ministry. The Lord has really blessed me in my time at Moody and given me opportunities I would have never seen myself doing three years ago. One of these opportunities is that this March I will be going to Formby, England on a ministry trip!
For this trip I will be in England from March 8th to the 24th. While there I will be working with Formby Baptist Church. Formby Baptist is located about 30 minutes north of Liverpool in England. This will be my first time going overseas and I am thrilled to have the opportunity. During my time in England I will be staying with host family from the church and primarily be doing life on life discipleship with the members of church there. Also as a part of this trip we will assist with the normal church duties helping with children’s church, youth group, leading Bible studies, and preaching. We will also host different events like men’s breakfasts, school events, tea-time with the senior citizens, and so many other things.
As I prepare for this trip please be praying that everything comes together well and that our travels go well. While we are in England please pray that our team stays strong. With this trip being in the middle of the semester it is going to be hard to manage everything and not fall behind in our schoolwork with midterms and many other things. Pray that our time there is used well, and that we are able to share the gospel. That the people are welcoming of our team and wanting to hear the message we bring. On the logistical side of things with 10 team members this trip is going to cost around $15,000 for all of us to go. This price includes air fair, food, and housing for all of us. So personally I need to raise $1,500 of this amount. Where as this is not a large amount it is definitely not something, I just have lying around. So if you would like to support me financially please mail your check to:
Practical Christian Ministries Department
Moody Bible Institute
820 N. LaSalle Blvd.
Chicago, IL 60610
Make the check out to Moody Bible Institute and in the memo line of this check please write “Joe Mally, PCM England Trip” so that I receive the money towards the trip. For those of you who use your gifts to also receive tax breaks a receipt will be issued in the mail to all who donate. Again the cost of the trip is $1,500 per a person so if any extra money happens to come in it will go to support the rest of my team members as the raise money.
Again as I prepare for this, thank you for all your support whether it be financially or in your prayers. I will make sure to post lots of updates to my Facebook and some pictures so you can all know how my trip went. In the mean time Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
