Mission Trip for MeKenzei

New PictureSend Me and I Will Go!

Dear Family and Friends,
I am very pleased to tell you about the amazing opportunity that God has
provided for me. After much prayer, my parents and I have decided, I will join
some others from Magnolia Bible Church, in going to Ecuador on a mission trip
to share the Gospel of Christ. We will be leaving July 31 and will return home
August 8.  Some of the activities that we will possibly be leading are; Vacation Bible
school, worship, crafts, and work projects.
This is something that God has placed on my heart and I have absolutely no doubts about going on this trip. There are a couple of ways that you can help me. First, I ask that you would pray for my physical health for this trip.  One year ago, I sustained an injury to my left hip and lower back, and I had to wear a SI brace for support. After attending physical therapy to strengthen my hip and back, my physical health improved greatly; however, I was unable to go and serve in Ecuador last year. I really appreciate the prayers said for my physical health throughout the year, and gratefully I can tell you that the previous injury will no longer affect my ability to go. Also, thank you everyone who has already donated money, and I ask that you will continue to pray for me and for the others on the team.
I ask that you also pray for me emotionally and spiritually as I continue to grow in Christ. The devil uses many ways to deter our relationship with the Lord and we often find ourselves or our families under attack when we try to share and grow in the word of God. For the past year I have been a student leader in the youth group at my church, and I have recently started volunteering in the Children’s Ministry as well. Being a student leader allows me to work with junior high students at Magnolia Bible Church, and it has been such a great honor and privilege to be able to inspire others. One of my favorite things to do is work with children and help them learn, which is why I decided to volunteer in the Children’s Ministry, where I help a Sunday school teacher share the word of God with children starting Pre-K in the fall. Helping others is something I am truly passionate about, and I believe mission trips will help me to grow in my relationship with the Lord and others around me. I am extremely excited to share with others the word of God, and to be able to see how the Lord will use me. I am also praying about whether or not the Lord wants me to be a missionary full time, and I believe that this mission trip will help me prepare for the next step He has planned for me.
We are so incredibly blessed to have this opportunity to go into Ecuador this summer and would like to also ask you to pray about helping monetarily. The cost is $2,300 and includes our airfare, baggage, food, lodging, transportation, translators, Bible lessons, recreation supplies and materials needed to share the Gospel in Ecuador.  I have already raised the money for my deposit by selling eggs, and I have my passport ready to go. If you are interested in donating monetarily you can mail a check to the church with a note that has my name on it and that it is for the Ecuador Trip, at
Magnolia Bible Church
31611 Nichols Sawmill Rd. Magnolia, Texas 77355

Thank you for your prayers and support.
In Christ,

MeKenzei Wells
