Looking for Support…Missions

19 Mar

Is your church or youth group looking to support missionaries abroad? Please take a look at the following information. Michelle is a personal friend of mine, from High School. I have known Michelle for what seems like forever, and would highly recommend her to your ministry.
Varustaa, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was founded by Allen and Michelle Tedder for one purpose – To Equip and Provide. We founded this ministry to bring non-profit organizations, volunteers and corporate partners together in both a global and local effort to meet the needs of our world and the world around us.
While we serve with local organizations, from food banks to outreach programs, we also strive to make an impact on the nations. We are currently preparing our sixth trip abroad, and will be supporting Open Door Ministries at several of their projects in Tocoa, Honduras. This three-month trip is set for the summer of 2010 and while there, our mission will include:
 Providing day-to-day support for Gates of Hope, a long-term safe house for sexually abused girls who have become pregnant as young as 10 years old.
 Care giving and support at the Village of Hope, an ever-growing orphanage and school.
 Facilitate numerous short-term mission teams from around the U.S., as they bring medical, construction and other volunteers to serve the needs of Open Door Ministries.
 Gaining awareness for Open Door Ministries and the children they rescue, through advertising, web development and our network of friends and volunteers.
What part can you play?
Our commitment to Christ and serving His local body has always been very steady and therefore we are long-term, involved members at our home church. In fact, we have been a part of only two churches since we were married in 1997, one in North Carolina and the other here in Florida. Because of this commitment to our church, we have very few contacts with other churches by which we can raise awareness for Varustaa and the organizations, which we support. We are currently seeking churches across the United States who have a desire to make a difference and partner with us in reaching the world for Christ. In doing so, you can become a very tangible extension of His hands, while serving others locally and around the world.
We are continually seeking financial support, as well as collecting supplies for the organizations we work with and for our own trips abroad. Our goal is to arrive with the specific and timely supplies that are needed by the organizations we serve, as well as to have cash on hand for the provision of equipment, supplies, repairs to facilities and ministry needs, which arise while on site. Bibles, clothing, toiletries, school supplies are a few of the many things that are always needed.
For our trip this summer we are hoping to collect much needed pajamas for two of the projects, the Village of Hope orphanage as well as the Gates of Hope girl’s refuge. We are also collecting spoons for the Las Brisas feeding station, which feeds over 80 children per day.
