Mission Trip?

I have been given a great opportunity to go with Cool Kids Ministries on a mission trip to Kiev, Ukraine.  This will be my first since I went to Romania five years ago.  I’m super excited about being able to work and serve with Bro. Steve and the others going on this trip.  Please pray that if it is God’s will (I am stepping out on faith here) He will provide the money.  Here is Bro. Steve’s recent email about the trip.
Through Christ,
Lady B

Could You Help Make This Trip Possible?
Dear Friends,
Here at Cool Kids we are excited about the New Year and all the new opportunities that such a time brings.  As you know we have begun and new partnership with Manna Worldwide.  We are so excited about this partnership because for the first time in seven years we now are ministering to boys and girls internationally.  What a thrill to be able to touch lives not only here at home but around the entire world.  As I am typing people are preparing to deliver shoes to children in the Philippines that we raised money for this past summer.  How awesome!  In March I, along Smile housewith several others, will be going to visit Smile House in Kiev, Ukraine, for which we also raised money this past summer.  It is with that trip in mind that I am writing.  Our trip was originally planned for May, but due to my daughter expecting our first grandchild the day we were to leave, we had to change our dates to March 23-31.  So now it becomes urgent that we raise money quickly for our trip.  Smile House is a “Bridge to Life Home” operated by Manna Worldwide helping orphaned children have a better life.  We will be working on the house itself, visiting Safe Haven (another BTL home) and ministering to children in the Ukraine as well as making plans for a camp that we will be running this fall.  I can’t wait!!!
So, could you help us make this trip possible?  The trip will cost $2500.  Any amount you could help us with would be greatly appreciated.  Since we are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, every dime you give is tax deductible, but more importantly than that, it is an investment in the hearts and lives of boys and girls that you may never meet this side of heaven.  I promise you, I will bring back pictures, videos and stories of all that God has done and share with everyone. 
If you can help, here is what to do:
1.  Go to our website (It will be back up and running on Thursday morning with a brand new face lift, new ideas and features) and click the Smile House Trip donation button.  Then the rest is up to you.
2. Or, you can make a donation by check.  Just mail your check to Cool Kids Ministries, PO Box 44, Union, KY  41091 and mark it Attn: Smile House Trip. 
I am truly excited about this trip and all that God is going to do.  Won’t you take a moment and help invest in the life of a child that needs to hear about Jesus?  Cast your bread upon the water and watch what God can do!!! (Eccl 11:1)
