Guatemala Fundraiser Recital

Guatemala 2013 285

Preparing for a missions trip takes a lot of time, energy, and resources.  You have to lock in the date for the trip.  You have to coordinate details of the trip.  And you have to determine the resources required to make the trip possible.  Some of these resources include tools, supplies, and donations for those you are helping.  Finally, you have to consider the financial cost of going on a missions trip.  How will you pay for the trip?

Our family is heading back to Guatemala this summer to serve with GO! Ministries in and around Xenacoj (a small village an hour and a half outside of Guatemala City).  Our date recently made a minor modification.  We are now planning to go July 20th through July 27th.  We will be ministering to the orphans and widows of the village.  As we get closer, we will be able to share more about what we’ll be doing specifically and what we will need to bring.

We have intentionally put aside money to help pay for this trip, but we still need to do some fundraising to help cover the costs of this trip which will cost our family approximately $7,000.  (We need to raise approximately $3,000 to help close the gap.)  We are kicking off our fundraising efforts this year with a recital.  Isaac will be headlining the recital, and he will be joined by friends and relatives who have offered their musical talents to help us raise money for Guatemala.

You are invited!  Here are the details:

  • Host:The Stolpe Family
  • What:Guatemala Fundraising Recital – A celebration of music to help send the Stolpe Family back to Guatemala this summer.  All donations received will be used for ministry in Guatemala.  A time of refreshments will follow the recital.
  • When:Sunday, March 30 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
  • Where:Jerusalem Lutheran Church 311 2nd St Schwenksville, PA 19473
