Summer 2018 Mission Trip Project

Dear Sponsors,

I'm happy to inform you that we have an amazing opportunity to bless our sponsored kids this summer in an even greater way!  The Meru travel team, of which I'll be a part, will be transporting and personally delivering letters and small packages (envelope size) to the sponsored children this coming August.  We will be purchasing backpacks for every student through funds raised by UPPC's VBS this summer and it is my hope that every child that Cherish Ministries supports receives a personal letter with some extra goodies that we can tuck inside the backpacks.

Would you be willing to put some items in an envelope and send it directly to me or drop it off at UPPC by July 15th? We will make sure it's packed and traveling with us to Meru, Kenya.

Please make sure the items are flat and fit in a small manilla envelope, no larger than 6x9.  Notes, stickers, bookmarks, cards, pictures would all be appropriate to send. Also, please consider writing a letter and sending a picture of you and your family.  The kids love personal pictures. Please DO NOT send bulky items as we will have many envelopes to pack and take with us. Please put the FULL NAME of your sponsored child on the front of the envelope and YOUR NAME on the upper left corner to make delivery easier. 

There will be a box labeled MERU KENYA at UPPC's welcome desk or you can mail it directly to me at: 
Carissa Lewis
921 Manor Dr.
Fircrest, WA 98466 

Please have it dropped off or mailed by July 15th.

Thank you so much!  I look forward to personally delivering these envelopes and seeing the joy that these small gifts bring!

Carissa Lewis (Cherish Ministry sponsor and Meru travel team 2018 member)
