My name is Lauren Ayala, and I have spent this last year working for Cru on STINT which stands for short term international mission trip in Puerto Rico.
This last year has been nothing like I could've imagined, it has been a year full of growing in trusting God's timing, plan, and goodness, and I am extremely excited to say that I have the amazing opportunity to come back for a SECOND YEAR! This next year I will be trusting God as I step into a Co-Leader role with our current male team leader. I am eagerly expecting that as my team gains two new teammates we will continue to reach Puerto Rican students on many different campuses. We will be reaching these students through initiative evangelism, discipleship, doing outreaches, and much more, however, in order to continue in this work I need to find a team of people who will partner with me both financially and prayerfully to meet my support goal.
I just want to say thank you for those of you who have been supporting me this year, and ask that you would consider coming alongside me for a second year, or first year, as I take this step of faith by supporting me. Praise God, He has supported much, but I am still in a big need of Monthly Support. I am asking that you would prayerfully consider supporting me financially however much you are able to, whether that be $10, $50, $100, $200, or any other amount you are able to do, and whether that be monthly support or one time support it all helps so much.
Another VITAL way that I could use your support is if you were to have any friends, church family, church friends, co-workers, family, people in your bible study, people in your extra curricular activities, etc, that you feel might have even the slightest bit of interest in hearing about my heart for going, that you would be able to give me their contact information because I would love to speak with them. If you would be willing to please send me their email, phone number, contact info, etc., so that I might be able to connect with them. Also,
This is a partnership between you and I.
My commitment to you:
I will aim to send you a monthly newsletter to keep you informed on what God is doing over there in Puerto Rico, as well as how your financial support is being used. I will also try and introduce you to some of the students there, and be checking in throughout the year for things that I could be praying for.
Your commitment to me:
You are supporting me and partaking in the Great Commission either financially, prayerfully, or both.
