Dreaming of Iceland!

Hey everyone, hope you have been enjoying your week! I wanted to talk to you about this amazing opportunity that has come my way.  I am super excited about this!

This upcoming Spring Break I have the incredible opportunity to go to Iceland! On a mission’s trip! Crazy right? Like who goes to Iceland? The Vikings, ha. Totally kidding. I have been on a mission's trip to Honduras back in high school and that was a memorable opportunity. To help, give back, talk, and share love with these people living in deprived conditions. Now I have the opportunity to do it again. Except it won't be in a tropical climate, instead it will be extremely frigid and wet. I can't wait to shine a light and warmth in such a cold place. Both environmentally and spiritually.

This is what we will be doing: We will be partnering with the local church, Filadelfia International Church, to do practical work, work with their youth ministry; also, we will be working with a Salvation Army base to feed immigrants at a local soup kitchen. We will be doing hostel ministry, which houses world travelers from around the world. The heart of this trip is to empower what the local church is doing within the heart of Reykjavik, Iceland. I need to raise a total of $1,600! We are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus and how incredible is it that you can partake in that as well without even going to another country, but simply by blessing me and giving!

"Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full-- pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back." -Luke 6:38
