A few months ago I received a message from a dear friend about the idea of traveling to Egypt to assist in building a skate park and ministering to some young adults.
If the money comes in, my trip will be from October 28th- November 8th. On November 2nd, there is a huge festival that will have 10,000 people in attendance. A church in Egypt as asked me to speak.
I believe the gospel has the power to change lives, and that why I believe this trip has the potential to be so powerful. Many of us know, that without the redemptive work of Christ on the cross, our lives would be utter chaos. I believe the youth in Egypt are lost, searching for something beyond daily routine and my goal in reaching them is to point them towards the cross of Jesus Christ where he washed away our sins and gave us a second chance.
I didn’t ask for it, but God is slowly starting to build me a platform through skateboarding through and it is shaping me to be an advocate for change in a generation chasing a false hope. It breaks my heart to see people around me give their focus to things of this world that will ultimately leave us empty.
It took me many years to give up what pop culture defines as happiness. The American dream swallows us up and spits us out unsatisfied.
Egypt is just another stop on the way towards my goal in sharing Christ with everyone I come in contact with. If you believe in what I am doing and want to see the love of Christ manifested through a broken skateboarder, I need your support. Prayer would be the first step. I am human, which means I fail. Please pray that the Lord will continue to break me and humble into the likeness of Jesus. Also, pray that the youth in Egypt will be radically changed by the realization that Christ died for them specifically.
As far as financial support I only have to raise airfare, which would be about $1,200. I’m currently working two jobs but I have rent, food, gas and many other bills just like everyone else in the world. Ha!
If you are thinking about giving a donation, please prayerfully consider it. I don’t just want your money. I want you to be involved in this trip and be just as passionate as I am about it.
If for whatever reason the trip does not go through, your money will be returned in full.
Thank you for your time, and I pray that God is revealing himself to you more and more each day.
