Moldova 2018 - Kathy, Shannon, and Emmanuel

In the year 2000, Rob had the opportunity to go on a short-term mission trip through our church, to India.  That trip birthed a love in him for taking the gospel to the nations that eventually spread to the rest of the family when we had the awesome gift of going on a trip to Africa a few years later.  Through our love for missions and sharing God’s Word, we have been fortunate enough as a family to visit several more countries for Christ.

Our daughters have fallen in love with sharing Christ overseas, and Jessica even lived in Peru for three months after her high school graduation as a result of earlier trips.  We now have the opportunity for Emmanuel to see first-hand how wonderful it is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ before we head back to Africa.

June 28-July 7, 2018, our church will lead it’s 13th trip to Moldova to teach VBS and run a medical clinic in a village in Moldova.  With each trip, we reach a different village.  Shannon, Emmanuel and I will work with children in VBS.  We are asking friends and family to support us in a few different ways.

We need prayer support.  We need our brothers and sisters in Christ to commit to pray for us in the area of finances for the trip, safety in travel, and that we would not miss a single moment God has planned for us to reach the people of Moldova. 
  1. We are asking for financial support.  This trip for the three of us will cost $7,500.  We will be selling t-shirts and trying to find another way to raise the money to go.  But, we are also trusting God to move the hearts of those that want to spread God’s Word, but may not be able to personally travel overseas to do so.  We know that this amount is not an obstacle for God, so we are praying He leads us to send this letter to those who have a heart for the nations.  Please prayerfully consider financially supporting us on this trip.
  2. Ask God to prepare our hearts for what He has in store.  We are trusting as we pray that our God who can supply all we ask and need will do a mighty work in us as a family – drawing us closer to Him as we seek to serve.  
If you feel led to support our family financially for this trip, please make your contributions through Valleydale Church 2324 Valleydale Road Birmingham, AL  35244.  You will need to make the check payable to Valleydale Church and put a sticky note on the check stating that it is to support the Compton family for Moldova.

We are selling these awesome Next Level shirts to raise money for me, Shannon, and Emmanuel to go to Moldova this summer. We will be helping conduct VBS in a village. The shirts are $20 for XS-XL, $22 for2XL-3XL. There’s also a shipping fee if we need to mail them. If you’d like to help us with our fundraising efforts, please direct message me! Thank you in advance!

Thank you in advance for your support and prayers.  We are so very thankful to have fellow believers who have a heart for the lost.  We are praying that God blesses you immensely as you pray and give.

May God use us all for His glory among the nations until He returns,

Kathy, Shannon, and Emmanuel Compton
