Raising Funds for Nepal

In the previous post, I have shared what I will be doing in Nepal, training church leaders from across the region. So far over 80 people have signed up and we hope a few more will join us by May 27.

When Global Equip partners with indigenous ministries, one of the things we want to do is to be a blessing to the local church.  So if we are going to train church leaders for a week or more, we want to cover their transportation costs as well as their food, lodging and expenses to get there.  At our last institute, one gentleman travel over 500 km by motorbike in Nepal to come to our conference.  We don't want him to have to decide between coming to the conference or feeding his family, so we cover his expenses.

The cost for transportation, lodging food for the participants for the week as well as my travel expenses comes to $3875.  My colleague is raising the same amount, $3875 to bring it to a total of $7750 for the whole week. 

Now if this sounds like a lot, consider this.  A friend of mine is going to Disneyworld for one week with his family, and his expenses are over $5000 for his family to fly and enjoy a week in Florida.  $7750 covers 80+ participants and their transportation, lodging food expenses as well as my expenses and my colleagues expenses.  $7750 begins to sound like a bargain, wouldn't you agree?

So if you would like to contribute, $20, $40, $50 or more to this cause, go to Global Equip's Website and click on the link to donate.  All donations are tax deductible.

If you prefer mailing in your donation, send it to:

Global Equip
PO Box 472131
Tulsa OK 74147

Make sure when you donate, you put in the memo of the check or online donation, "Nepal 2013 Jason"

Let me know if you have any questions or want to know more about the training.  We are only a month away, so every donation will help!
