Dear Friends and Family,
It’s hard to believe I’m more than halfway done with my junior year of college! The last year has been full of spiritual, musical, and educational growth, and next spring I will begin my student teaching in Wake County Public Schools! Last summer I participated in an eight week summer discipleship program called City Project, and learned how to serve and witness locally, nationally, and internationally. I was able to share the gospel in New York, Durham, and Kenya!
God has blessed me with another opportunity to be on mission with Him this summer: May 23- June 21! This year I am participating in Second City. Second City is an all intensive discipleship and missional experience. I will be spending eight weeks alongside Summit Church Planters in South Asia. My team and I will be broad gospel sowing in our city, and connecting locals with our long term missionaries at a Summit Church Plants. Second City will allow me to grow in my relationship with God by reaching out to serve God’s people and learning how to practically love God, love others and love the world because Jesus loved us first!
I am asking you to consider being my partner in missions. Even small contributions help with the $4300 cost and will be greatly appreciated. This joint investment will yield eternal results! Half of my support is due by March 12, 2017. The remaining portion is due in April. If you can assist me financially, you can give online at: www.summitrdu.com/supportsecondcity . Be sure to enter my name, Alexis Chastain, on the form. If you prefer to give by check, it should be payable to The Summit Church. Be sure to enclose the form below with your check. My name should not be written in the memo line of the check. You can mail your tax-deductible gift to The Summit Church, City Project, 2334-114 Presidential Dr. Durham, NC 27703. For your financial privacy, the church will tell me that you have contributed, but they will not disclose the amount.
Through prayer God can give me the strength to do anything, including serve Him through international missions (Philippians 4:13). Please pray for God to provide the funds we need to make this mission possible, and for God to use this experience to grow and shape me in the image of Jesus! Pray for my team to receive spiritual wisdom and to be unified in Jesus throughout the summer. Pray for God to give us opportunities to serve our field partners, and to serve those in our city. I appreciate your prayer and support through this process!
