ACT Missions Trips – Join Us In Shaanxi, China
Here is a personal letter from one of our team leaders to
China. The Benton family has been a tremendous blessing to the America World family for
many years and we are excited to have Toni lead one of our 2013 mission trips
Hi! I'm Toni Benton, and my husband Bill and I are
blessed AWAA parents to 7 beautiful kiddos from China. Never in our wildest
dreams could we have imagined all that God had planned for us when we filled
out that first application back in 2000.
You likely know that AWAA has launched several ACT
Mission trips for this summer/fall for the sole purpose of caring for orphans,
and God has called me to lead the Shaanxi, China trip. “I
will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you!” (John 14:18). We can't forget the orphans who are still waiting. So, we will COME to them!
Our daughters, Faith (18) and Theresa (12) are
both Shaanxi girls, and they'll be going on this trip as well. Perhaps you
and your child (ages 5 and up) would like to join us? We’re
thinking of this as a heritage tour of sorts, combined with serving the King of
kings and His kiddos too. Imagine the impact on their lives, going back to
serve. Want to come too?
We want these precious orphans to know that they are not
forgotten by us, and especially not forgotten by the Heavenly Father who
created, formed and sees them. Will you answer the call and COME with us as
we ACT out the gospel to visit these children? Come serve Him by
caring for His children!
Our current team of 8 needs a few good friends to
join us in loving on some of His kids who have no one else to love on them.
Won't you pray about coming? The dates of the trip are 7/25 – 8/4 and you
can get more details here: http://www.awaa.org/ACT/trips/China(Shaanxi)/.
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying,
“Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here
am I. Send me!” (Isaiah 6:8)
Thank you, Toni for these beautiful words! This trip is
right around the corner and we’ll be booking airline tickets and getting visas
within the next two weeks, but there’s still time to join if you feel called to
do so. Please feel free to contact us at 800-429-3369 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
