Hey friends!This is just a short post to catch you up to date with some up and coming missions, how you can pray, how you can support, and how you can help!
This September I will be traveling with a friend to Haiti. We recently met a missionary there who is taking in orphans and educating children. She's doing an amazing work and we want to team up with her hopefully long term to support all that she is doing in Haiti. In September we will go and put on a retreat for the over 200 kids she is schooling plus others. We will scout and see how we can most benefit her and we're trying to raise money to help supply clean water to her base. The costs of a well and water purification system are not cheap, so any financial help or even expertise or connections in that area are GREATLY appreciated.
In October I'll be going with a friend to Eastern Europe. We will be meeting up with a missionary and church planter there who has started over 200 churches. We'll be in Hungary and Poland, possibly Serbia. We'll be going to these church plants to encourage them, minister, and love on the people.
In March we plan to go back to Haiti and not only put on a youth camp, but bring a team and do as much work as we can with the finances we have raised. (If you have a specific skill we might could USE YOU)
As these foreign missions get kicked up next month as well as our local outreaches and public school bible studies (right now we'll be in 5 local public schools) we definitely need your prayer and support. Please be praying for guidance, strength, and provision.
Right now we're selling t-shirts through an online booster organization where you can get online, order a shirt, benefit the children in Haiti, and the shirt will be mailed to your door by the booster. Just go visit www.booster.com/ruralawakening The campaign is only 7 days so if you want one of the shirts you'll have to hurry!! If you're in the area on September 7th, 6pm, at Liberty City Hall we'll be holding a pancake dinner and Vera Bradley silent auction to raise money for the missionary in Haiti. Tickets are $8 and we'd love for you to join us or donate some of your new/used Vera Bradley items for the auction!
Tax deductible donations can also be made to Rural Awakening if you'd like to support any of these projects or just what Rural Awakening is doing in general. I'm excited about what God is doing through Rural-Awakening and the global bride of Christ. I'm super pumped as I watch people across the globe awakening to the very love and power of Jesus Christ.
Be Blessed, J. Tate
