If you missed the post about the upcoming camp for Missionary Kids in Honduras, which Rachel is organizing this year, you can find it here.
Since then, Rachel has kept busy! She and Boo created a FB page, MK Camp Honduras, and she’s been recruiting campers, counselors, staff, and donors. So far she has signed up 39 campers, 13 counselors, and 18 staff members! This is already enough people that we could hold the camp today, and there are more than 2 months left until the camp. We know some families have not been able to officially sign up yet, as they’re checking on schedules and such.
Additionally, worship times, themes, T-shirts, schedules, foods, and activities are all in the process of being planned. Candy for canteen sales, handkerchiefs for team colors, prizes, etc are being ordered and are traveling down in suitcases with teams between now and camp.
Now, we are still badly in need of donors to complete the funding of the camp. So far we have about $800 donated. You may recall that we have a donor offering to match all donated funds, up to $3000. That means, we are still $2200 short of getting all of the matching funds that have been offered! Obviously we still need some additional donations here.
If you’d like to help the children of missionaries enjoy a week of camp, geared specially for the needs of kids raised outside their home culture, here’s how you can donate:
Click on THIS LINK to donate online using credit card, debit card, or automatic monthly donations from your bank account. Make sure that you choose “Missionary Support” from the drop down menu, and type in “Sowers Ministry – MK CAMP” in the box requesting “additional specifics on how to use the gift.”
Thank you so very much, from all the Honduras Missionaries and their kids!!!!!!
