My Travel Story

by: Willie Mitchell Start Date: Aug 17, 2016 - End Date: Aug 16, 2017
DEAR, SPONSORS AND FRIENDS!

Can you envision a land where 1 in 3 people lives in poverty? A place where the basic
medical and physical needs go unmet because the inability to obtain proper medicines? I want to
share with you a challenging opportunity God has presented to me. 
Aug. 18, 2017 I will be going to Kenya, Africa with a team from Bethels Global Reach Inc. a
non profit 501 (c) 3 organization.
My trip will focus on Volunteering to giving spiritual advice, physical, and medical needs of our
brothers and sisters in Kenya, Africa.
The purpose of our trip is fourfold:
 First, we will be allowing God to work in our lives through the personal
enrichment that comes from this type of a mission trip.
 Second, this Missionary Journey will help us focus our individual prayers
by traveling to a foreign land and praying 'on-site with insight.' We will
pray for Kenyans and bring much needed Spiritual and medical attention.
We will deliver the life changing message of Christ through preaching,
teaching and praying with people that God may open their eyes and hearts
to the message of Jesus.
 Third, we will be visiting an 'unreached people by witnessing door to
door. Bethels Global Reach has adopted the Kenyan people group and is
assisting in bringing them the gospel. We will be working with other
Churches in the region to help them grow in their Christian walk.
 Fourth, we will encourage local Christians in Kenya and in surrounding
areas. Our presence will bolster their spirits and support their work. We
will visit many small villages in Kenya where we will develop relationships with the Christians there.
I'm excited about the opportunity and experience that lie ahead. I hope you see the value in what
we will accomplish. As you can imagine, a trip like this requires financial support from a number
of people. I need to raise $4668.00 by Aug.2017. Your support in this endeavor will reach far
beyond your check book and make an eternal difference in the lives of the people of Kenya!
I would be very grateful. And, most importantly, I also need your prayer support. Prayer is the
fuel that will allow us to be successful as we follow God's leading in ministry in these countries.
Without prayer, nothing will happen.
To be part of this mission through your financial support, All contributions are tax deductible.
While money is important, it comes in a distant second to my need for your prayer support.
Since prayer support is so important to the success of this mission, I would like to know if I can
count on you in that area..
Please pray daily for the areas listed.
Because they haven't heard,
(Signed)
Willie Terrence Mitchell

WHY THIS MEANS SO MUCH TO ME:

Late 2007 I was diagnosed with Hiv after donating blood plasma to hoxworth blood center, later that week I recieved a call From hoxworth blood center asking if I could come in,That's when i was told that i have Hiv.
.I was devastated and i felt i couldn't go on.
Not Thinking I left home and traveled to Littlerock Arkansas living on the streets not being abled to focus from one day to the next feeling hopeless wanted to Die,I even trying to end my life,but for the grace of God he came to me while being in the Hospital tied up and on 24 hour watch And told me what are you doing it's not over but the beginning. 
Being At the hospital for a week i decided to fight back and got inspired to learn and Ask Questions About the Hiv/Aids virus. While there in Littlerock Arkansas at the Center For Decease Control i was asked if i wanted to try out this New medication Called Complera that hasn't been out on the market or FDA approved I thought why not i tried it and it was a success and now i'm HIV/AIDS Undetectable Thanks To GOD!
and
The Arkansas AIDS Foundation /Consortia-Care of Arkansas

I Also volunteered for the agency.which also provides:
  • Transititional Housing provided for those that Hiv/Aids Positive.
  • Homeless.
  • Drug Addiction.
  • Group meetings each week.
  • Learning what is Hiv/Aids
  • How to prevent giving each other the virus.

Years Later i returned back home in Ohio started Volunteering with this Agency Caracole in Cincinnati Ohio,who as well provide Testing and peer support Meetings through out the cincinnati Ohio area And Support other different Avenues In the LGBT Communities. And Through ShelterPlusCare That Provide:
  • Transistional housing for People who are Hiv/aids Positive.

Thanks to your Kind Donations I Have Taken the Time and I have already learned so much about this. This trip I am planning to take the next step to (Studying and Volunteering) in (Continent of Africa). I am beyond excited! Beyond just exploring a new places and having Studied This Trip, I chose to go to (The Continent of Africa) because (I Care). While abroad I will be: ● (Working with The Children/Families) ● (This will show the community that they’re people around the world that cares) This trip means so much to me because I Too Had This HIV/AIDS virus and they’re not alone. On this trip I expect to grow, be challenged, and learn so much about myself. But I can’t do it alone! There are many ways you can contribute to my goal of making it a success while there I will learn of their culture and they can learn about ours. I’ve outlined them on my personal campaign page.
