God Willing, I'm Going to Ecuador!

First time on a mission trip.
First time traveling internationally.
First time obtaining a Passport.
First time for a lot.

Sunday I attended a meeting with my husband at the church, fully expecting to learn about a mission trip he'd be going on in September.  After some convo and working schedules around, it seems I can go too!

That really wasn't what I was expecting but I'm super stoked.  Jason and I will be going with ten other people on a mission trip to Quito, Ecuador.  We will be working with Pan de Vida missions on feeding programs, children's ministry, and home repair.  This one week trip will be about helping others who are less fortunate and spreading the gospel.

I feel like I have a lot to learn and a lot to do before then.  Which is why I'm reaching out to you:

Have you ever traveled to Ecuador?
Have you been on a mission trip?
Do you have ideas for individual fundraising?
Any general travel advice?

Best of luck to you! My prayers will be with you! I know a few that worked in missions and they had various churches in their area sponsor them. I wouldn't recommend GoFundMe as my daughter started getting propositions after she had started one to raise money after we lost my daughter so unexpectedly. Talk to some church members that have businesses in your area. Share pictures about where you are going and what you hope to accomplish during your time there.

How exciting! I hope you have a great time and do great works while there. Can't wait to hear about it.
Maybe auction something cool off on your blog for funds?

God bless you and your trip. I have traveled internationally but as a military wife. That makes it a totally different experience. I don't have any advise. As others in your church that have made trips like this. I am sure they have lessons learned.

She said there are no words for a mission trip.Very heartbreaking but also more heartwarming.Im sure you'll do fine. The love of Christ shines through you. I know Jason is a great man of God also. My prayers will be with you both.
