Burchette's Mission Trip

Hello Friends:

I hope this letter finds you doing well!I want to share with you a ministry opportunity that God has presented to me and Christina. From April 3 - April 12, 2009 God has offered us the chance to go to Burkina Faso with West Ridge Church out of Dallas, GA. On this 9-day missions trip we will minister to the people of Ouagadougou at the L.A.C. school, and in the poor area of the city known as Sector 30. Missionary partners will host us as we minister to teens at the school, and to children and families in Sector 30.

While God has opened up a door for us to develop a greater heart of compassion for His people around the world, the exciting part is that you will be able to share in this compassion in several ways. First, you can help pray for me and Christina. We will need prayers that God will prepare us for our visit and bless our efforts as we minister to the people of Burkina Faso.

We will also need prayers that our financial needs will be met. At this time we need to raise $4,500 in the next week, and that is quite a challenge! Another way you can be involved is to help provide that financial support. Would you consider supporting us with a donation? We will need to raise all of our funds as soon as possible (we leave in 23 days!) in order to pay for our trip.

For any donations please make checks payable to Christina or Anthony Burchette. Whether you feel led to contribute financially, through prayer, or both, all of your support is appreciated.We look forward to doing God's work in Burkina Faso and letting you know all about how God has worked through this trip when we return.

With love,Anthony & Christina Burchette
