It’s that time again; Spring Break is just around the corner! WOO HOO!!! This year we will be taking around 20 CSFers to Paintsville, Kentucky from March 21-26th. Yes, it is somewhere different this year but we are excited to be trying something new. We will be helping with home repairs, remodeling, wheelchair ramps, community buildings and churches, as well as helping with an after school program in the area. We are also doing a supplies drive that we will take down to KY to help with the Appalachia Field Needs. If you are asking yourself, “What can I do to help this year?” Number one is to pray. Pray for Kentucky, pray for the families and communities we are going to be working with, pray for God to work through the CSFers on this trip as we travel. Number two is to support us financially. This year it will cost $350 each and for 20 to go it will cost $7000 total. Each year is an encouragement that God is in control because we always raise enough money to take everyone, including those who sometimes can’t afford it. Third is to help us is to donate to our supplies drive for the Appalachia Field.
The website is can be found here, and if you are unsure what we already have then check our Facebook event entitled, “CSF SPRING BREAK 2011!!!!” We will keep the list up to date as supplies come in. And lastly, pray. There is no such thing as too much prayer. Paul says in Colossians 4:2, “Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.”
Here we come Kentucky!!!
- If you would like to make a financial donation please write the check out to Christian Student Fellowship. If you would like to have it go to a specific CSFer please put a note with your check with the CSFers name on it and NOT on the “Memo” line of the check.
