I apologize for the long wait on my report of my mission trip to Washington D.C. I understand that many of you have been anxious to hear how my trip went. I just want you to know that you have helped change a lot of lives in Washington D.C. with your financial and spiritual support. It was a wonderful experience. We did many wonderful things. When we were helping the community, we were working with little kids and packaging food and groceries for poor income families. We also managed to see great sites. We saw the Library of Congress, the state capital, the Washington National Cathedral, the White House, the the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument, the FDR Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial. On Friday afternoon, we set out to stay in a cabin in the mountains of the beautiful West Virginia. We stayed there for the night and all day Saturday. On July 17th, I have returned from my trip in Washington D.C . We arrived back in Chicago at 10:00. It was a really great trip. I want to thank all of my supporters again for helping me pay for this trip. It was really worth going. Again thanks to all of you!

Washington D.C Trip

Tomorrow at 6:45 a.m. I'll be taking off on my great adventure to Washington D.C. There will be challenges that I will be facing when I'm in Washington D.C. But there will also be some fun things that I'll be able to do on this trip. And for both of those reasons, I am very excited to be embarking on this journey. I hope that I shall change lives in Washington D.C. and that the challenges I face will draw me closer to God. I just want to thank all of you who have supported me through your generous donations. By the end of this trip, I will let you all know how my trip went and how God has used me. Please pray for me that my trip will go smoothly and that I shall have the strength to face the tasks God has given me. Thanks again to all of you!

Washington D.C. MissionTrip

Soon, I will be graduating from 8th grade. This summer, I and other 8th graders who graduate will be able to join high school students on a mission trip to Washington D.C. We will be in Washington D.C. from July 11th through July 17th. We will be able to explore Washington D.C., while doing service projects to help the community such as cooking meals for the homeless, packing food boxes for poor families, and a lot more. I want to go because I've always wanted an opportunity to help people and society, and I've always wanted to go to Washington D.C. For this trip, I need $220, and I would appreciate if you could help me to get the money I need to go on the trip. If you could make a generous donation, not only will you help me to cover my insurance for the trip, you could be giving me a chance to do amazing things in Washington D.C. to help our society. Thank you for your help and support!
