Ministry Update 12/19/14

The countdown is on!

Only 16 more days until we leave for the Philippines!

As you can imagine, we are very excited about what the Lord is doing. We long to see the little faces of the many children whom we will have the privilege of ministering to.

We are excited about the new friendships we will build, the new ministry the Lord will birth, and the new converts that will come to Christ as a result of preaching the gospel and loving people.

Update on our fund-raiser

We are pleased to announce that our initial fund-raising goal has been met. The Lord has provided for our airfare and the initial start-up costs of the ministry center in the Philippines.

Thank you seems so inadequate. The Lord’s people have given to support the Lord’s work and we are grateful.

The next steps

We can now turn our attention to building the ministry at hand. During our time in the Philippines we will do much work.

Establish the new ministry center

Meet the physical and spiritual needs of the homeless children and adults

Work with our partner church to teach and train in the new ministry

Host a wonderful missions team from the U.S. in April

And much more!

Our main goal is to assist the local church we are partnering with to successfully minister the gospel to the homeless children (and adults) in their community.

 What we are asking now

Now that the initial needs of the trip have been met, we are asking for generous donations to help us accomplish this important ministry day in and day out next year.

With the ongoing ministry, monthly supporters and one time donations are needed. We know that some people like to give on a monthly basis while others like to give at different times.

As a non-profit ministry, we praise the Lord for each and every donor!

With that in mind, please visit our donor page here. This page has all the details for anyone who wants to give to the Lord’s work through Unsheltered International.

We appreciate generosity, so we want to be generous too

new tshirt offer

You may have seen that we are giving away free tee shirts this month to anyone who becomes a monthly supporter or anyone who gives a one time gift of $50 or more.

Today I realized that we actually depend on our supporters being generous (and they are).

So with that thought in mind, we want to be generous as well and make these limited edition tee shirts available to everyone who makes a donation now through the end of the year IN ANY AMOUNT!

I know, call me crazy, it’s okay. I am just overwhelmed at the Lord’s goodness and we want to be good to our supporters like they are to us.

So simply visit this page today, give a donation of any amount, and we’ll be happy to send you one of these cool shirts as our way of saying thanks for making a difference along with us.

One more thing

This Monday, 12-22, we are having a time of prayer and fellowship at Temple Baptist Church in Cullman, AL (our home church). It is a drop in and will be from 5:30-7:30 in the Rock building. This will be a time where we (the Sharpe family) can say goodbye to our friends and have snacks and prayer for our trip.

We would love to see you there!

Thanks so much for reading,

Travis Sharpe
