Hello everyone! It has been some time since my last post. I do apologize about that. It has been a great semester and as you can imagine it has also been extremely busy.
I have some exciting news to tell you, in case you haven’t heard. I have been approved to go on a short-term mission trip this summer to Cuba with Free Will Baptist International Missions. I’m excited about this trip! Our trip will be August 4-15th 2016.
In order for me to go, I need to raise prayer and financial support. Some of you might have received a support letter, either by email or mail. I have put this post together for those who haven’t heard about my trip.
I’m excited about this opportunity to serve and learn more about discipleship, missions, and youth ministry in Cuba. Please begin praying for me and the CMP team now!
Excerpts from my support letter
This August I will have an opportunity to serve on a short-term mission trip to Cuba. My team and I will be partnering with Cuban leaders at the annual youth conference. Many Cuban young people are very dedicated to the Lord. This annual youth camp is hosted by our Free Will Baptist Seminary in Pinar del Rio. Our theme for this camp is, “Renew your mind, guarding your heart”, based on Proverbs 4:23. I am excited about this important opportunity!
My first experience in Cuba was March 2014, where I served with a team from Welch College. God gave me a heart for the Cuban people. I experienced worship, evangelism, and the life of a missionary for ten days. My first trip to Cuba was life changing and I know my return trip will be as well!
Please join me in prayer for the Cuba CMP trip this August. In order to participate in this trip, I am asking for your prayer and financial support. I need to raise $2,100.00 by June 1 in order to go on this trip. There are a few ways you can support me financially:
- Log on to the International Missions website and give a tax deductible gift to my account using this link: http://www.fwbgo.com/student-missions/student-details/id,783/dustin-walters
- Mail a check to Free Will Baptist International Missions at P.O Box 5002 Antioch, TN 37011. In the memo line please write, “Dustin Walters, CMP”.
Your gift of any amount will be appreciated but if you can give in increments of $25, $50, or $100 amounts it will be especially helpful. Please respond soon if you intend on giving since I will need to raise these funds as soon as possible.
Thank you for faithfully supporting me through prayer and finances! You have played an important role in my Christian walk and preparation for full-time vocational ministry. I thank God for your partnership in the Gospel! (Philippians 1:4-6)
