The Home Stretch!!!

Hi Friends,

We are closing in on the home stretch and can not wait for all that lies ahead!! Our team is set, our tickets are purchased and our fundraising efforts are in full effect. There has been a special call placed on each and every one of our hearts and we know that God has a special and unique plan for each of our lives. Through our meetings and prayer time together, we have seen God reaveal himself and feel Him guiding out every step through this journey.

Our 5th annual Missions golf tournament was a HUGE success!!! Thank you to everyone who came out to play and support our trip to the DR, as well as the trips to Cuba and Burundi. It was an exciting day and the fundraising surpassed our expectations. We also held a Happy Hour get together at Ed's Tavern and it was so great to have friends, family and even last years team come out to give us their support!! Here are 2 pictures from that night...

Thank you all so much for checking in and supporting each of us!! Our last and final fundraising effort is coming up August 20th at Applebee's at Stonecrest...its a Flapjacks fundraiser so come out and enjoy some yummy pancakes and sausage from 8-10 and love on our team as we are closing in on the departure date!!

Love and Blessings,
Carl, Kyle, Carrie, Luke, Trish, Sarah, Alisha and Amber!!!

God's Mission in the Dominican Republic!

We are so excited for this September's mission trip!! Seven Forest Hill members will be traveling to the Dominican Republic to begin the ground breaking work on the third story of our sister church in Santo domingo. this space will serve as temporary housing and a safe haven for those in need. Our trip is a construction based missions, but we will also have the opportunity to meet many of the locals to learn about their lilves and to share with them the love of Christ.

We know that God has a special plan for this trip and we are so excited to see all that He is going to do, not only in our lives as we prepare for this trip, but also in the lives of all those we come in contact with. Please keep us in your prayers as we fundraise and plan in the next few months.

Prayer Requests:
> Pray that we can raise the financial support that we need! Each team member needs $2,000 to cover transportation, food, lodging, building materials and the hiring of professional laborers to help with the project. If you would like to give toward the trip, go to the "Donate" button on this page. To designate your donation to a specific team member, there is a line to do so before you confirm your contribution.

> Pray that God will prepare our hearts and direct our steps as we get ready for the trip. It is an honor to be able to bring hope to believers and those in need of Christ.

> Pray for our missions Golf Tournament coming up on July 25th. We have teamed up with other missions team to put together this years tournament and we are pumped for a great day on the course and in fellowship with those who are helping support your fundraising. There is still space if you are interested in participating. Please contact Amber Eddings, 980-406-8245 for more information.
