Road Trip?

4 01 2014

This is the journey ahead of me.  I know where my finish line is but I have no idea how to get there.  I have my GPS to guide me along the way and I have check points, because this journey is too long to get down in one day.  Road blocks might come and detours might need to be taken, and tolls to be paid.  Oh I’m sorry, did you think I was talking about the trip I am making to Florida?  I am taken, but I am talking about the trip that is being a follower of Christ.  My journey will take my whole life.  The finish line is Heaven and the GPS is Christ.  Check points exist because I get called all over the place.  Road blocks because the Devil is on the prowl and detours for when I fall.  Tolls because there is a cost of following The Almighty.   That cost of leaving those we love and leaving our wills at the starting line.

HELP

2 02 2013

I haven’t said anything on either of my blogs about this because well really I didn’t think about it.  Anyways I felt called to go on a mission trip my College is putting on.  The trip is to Thessaloniki, Greece on May 9th until the 23rd. On the trip we will be doing many things such as doing a protest for A21 which is a nonprofit sex trafficking awareness and prevention organization, doing a coffee shop ministry (sitting down with Greek college students to help with their English), and also going to a Roma (gypsy) camp to spend time with the children.

I have never been on a mission trip before and I am really looking forward to this.  As of right now I am in need of two things 1st Prayer and 2nd financial help.  The whole trip cost $2,900 and right now I need $1,475(1st half) on Feb 21st for the 1st deadline.  That is right as of right now I’ve only raised $25 towards the trip.  If you are able to help, it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED.  Southeastern University is a non-profit organization and when you donate at https://www.seu.edu/forms/giving.php (in the comments please make sure you write “Greece-Eric Fifield”) you will be able to deduct any donation you made on your taxes.

Any and all help both financial and prayer is appreciated.  I know my God will provide because I truly believe that he has called me to this trip.  I know most people that read this will not know me personally but if read some of my other blogs than you will know what I have been though and the fact that God is using me is a miracle in itself and so I must believe in this miracle that He will provide.  Please consider this.  Thanks and God Bless.
