Our Daughter Serving In New York City

Our daughter, the 15-year-old missionary, wants to leave Honduras and serve as a missionary. Madison will spend the month of July serving as a cross-cultural intern at MTW’s Cross-Cultural training for new missionaries.

Before an MTW missionary leaves the U.S. to serve on the mission field they must participate in this month-long, intense, cross-cultural training in New York City. It is a mix of classes and service and is designed to prepare a missionary’s heart and mind to joyfully experience the shocks of other cultures.

Madison will lend her experience as a missionary kid and her four-years of living abroad to the kids that attend this training. Madison will have the chance to help prepare 30 new missionaries and their children to serve all over the globe.

To make this happen Madison needs your prayers and support. In the next 10 days she must raise nearly $3,000 to cover her expenses. If you would like to make a tax-deductible credit/debit card contribution to Madison’s work please go HERE. Make sure 16189 is in the designation.

It is exciting that our daughter has such a desire for serve. Please pray she raise the finances she needs to enable her to help prepare new missionaries to serve all over the globe.
