mission plans and prayers

 I hope that this note isn’t too lengthy. I will start by filling you in on where I am and where I am headed. Home is now in Oklahoma City and it could never feel more like it. God has worked wonders in my life and has brought my entire family together with a stronger bond then ever before; a bond that can not be broken and which I am thankful for.
I am embarking on a new stage of my life and with that I am happy to have their support. I am starting my first semester of college and I could not be more ready. God has been faithful! He is doing wonderful things and I know that He will continue to be faithful to the end of this chapter and beyond.
As I take my first steps in training for my future, God has given me the opportunity to be plugged into a ministry. Sponsored by Harding University and composed of dear friends of mine this ministry will be a blessing to me and hopefully to others. The chance will not only extend my education into the summer session, but also allow me to join Him in His work.
In May, I will be departing on a social outreach mission trip to the south island of New Zealand for 5 weeks. The church is struggling for growth and needs support. Our purpose is to encourage the members of the body of Christ. My team may struggle but with prayer and preparation God’s glory will prevail and hopefully will shine through us.
The trip is being funded entirely through donations and by those going. Every penny collected will be used to directly benefit the children of the community and the families of the church. Any unused supplies will be left with the missionaries in town. Though, our prayer is to leave a lasting impression in the hearts of the children and the families so that they may be edified, bringing them closer to the face of God.
I am excited about the opportunity to serve and to minister, and I ask you to join me in ministry. Each member of the team has been called to raise a minimum of 3,000. This will cover the expenses throughout our stay and provide more then what money can pay for to our hosts.
I am seeking your support and prayers for this mission. If you are able to assist with this trip, I would ask that you forward any donation in the envelope addressed to.

Global Outreach
Harding University
HU Box 12280
Searcy, AR 72149

Please make any negotiable payable to “Harding University” and in the memo line “Global Outreach Funds Ben Williams,” or leave a note with any cash donation for the funds to be appropriated.
Thanks in advance for your prayers and your financial support. May God bless you!

His therefore Yours,
Ben
