An invitation from Pam Carter to make some really big dreams come true.
While traveling throughout the Conference, I have met so many wonderful young adults. They are committed Christians who truly and earnestly desire to make a difference in this world. What is often holding them back from participating in our global missions opportunities is a lack of financial means to pay for the costs that are associated with the travel. With your help, we are going to change that.
And, here’s how we’re going to do it.
This year we are growing grassroots support for young adult missions with a Jewelry Re-Sale for Missions. This is a different kind of jewelry sale because we are asking all of you to contribute items from your jewelry collections that you are no longer using, both real and costume jewelry. We will sell these items at Annual Conference. Even your damaged jewelry is welcome! We will take your unused or unwanted items and help them become the foundation for a young adult missions scholarship fund. The money we raise will help fund two young adult trips to our covenant partners in Cuba and Haiti in the coming year.
So how can you participate?
Check your jewelry box for items you are willing to donate
Send items to your District Office (in zip lock bags, if possible) no later than June 1
Purchase items at the Jewelry Re-Sale for Missions while at Annual Conference
Call your district office if you have any questions
Sending your items by June 1 will give us plenty of time to organize the inventory and get ready for the big re-sale for mission opportunities.
So stop by the sale, find a treasure and make mission participation a reality for the next generation!
