About my Fundraiser
Emily, Adam, Sam and I are planning to go on a mission trip to Guatemala in the summer of 2017.

I have felt this calling to serve for many years and finally found the perfect group to go with.  What's even a bigger blessing is my children are also very passionate about wanting to go and help this very poor village.

Encounter Church has had a partnership with the Learning Center in Cruz Blanca, Guatemala since 2009 through the ministry of VisionTrust.  Many families, like ours, sponsor children in the impoverished village of Cruz Blanca.  We just started sponsoring a 4 year old girl named Joceleyn.  We are excited to get more information about her to share on this post soon.  Our support is enabling her to attend school to receive tutoring, healthy meals and to learn about Jesus and his love.

In addition to meeting Joceleyn and spending time with her we will be engaging in physical labor for the week and teaching the kids in the learning center.  In the past, this group has installed water filtration systems, stoves and planted gardens.

We welcome your heartfelt contribution through givezooks! to defray the cost of our trip.  You can donate through this site or make your check out to VisioinTrust International, which is tax deductible.  The trip code and our name should be written on your check to ensure we are properly credited "GU071702" -THe Schrepfermans.

I am hopeful that with your help and prayers we can achieve this family mission trip to help others less fortunate and bring smiles and love to these children.  

Thank you!
We got Josselyn's photo. See above! so sweet!
