It’s completely editable and you may use it however you’d like to get the word out about the opportunity you have to join this mission and how anyone who wants to can support in prayer and financially.
Dear Friends & Family
I am very excited to share with you that I have been invited to be a part of a mission’s trip to Kosovo, February 13-23, 2023, with World Missions Alliance. Most Christians in Kosovo are ethnic Serbs, and they are the minority in that region. They live in segregated neighborhoods which are open-air prisons from which they cannot get out without risking a skirmish. They are regularly attacked, looted and pushed to leave. They live in great poverty; they are systematically discriminated against.
Serbian Christians are excluded from the health system of Kosovo. They can only go to a Serbian hospital, in the north of the province, or to another, in the south.
Our mission to Kosovo has the goal of strengthening the local evangelical church and equipping them to meet the needs of the Serb Christians but also to share the light of the Gospel with the Albanian Muslims who are the majority in Kosovo.
Medical missions, evangelism, meeting the needs of the poor and equipping local pastors and Christian leaders for more effective ministry will be the main areas of the outreach.
I am writing to ask for your help in 2 areas. First and foremost I ask you to pray for the success of this trip. We’ve already begun planning, getting passports, purchasing airplane tickets, etc. We need God’s guidance in every aspect of this trip. So your prayers are extremely important.
Next, I am asking you to consider helping financially if you feel lead to do so. I truly believe the Lord is directing this mission and your money will be sown into very fertile soil. Upon return, I will be excited to share with you about the Harvest that will be yours as well. I need $1800 for expenses there (hotel, food, transportation, cost of interpreters, etc..) and my flight cost of approximately $900.
Your gift is tax deductible and checks should be made out to World Missions Alliance (or W.M.A.) and designated to my missionary support. You can send the funds to me or directly to World Missions Alliance at: P.O. Box 1067 Branson West, MO 65737. You can also make a donation by credit card on the WMA website: https://rfwma.org/give/. Any amount will be a huge help and will make you a vital part of winning souls for Christ in Kosovo.
Thanks for taking time to read this and thanks in advance for your support. You will be a vital part of everything God will do in Albania. I can’t wait to share with you the incredible account of this mission!
