Abigail Lineberry Mission Fundraiser Concert
June 30th | 6-8PM
The World Race Gap Year is part of a non-profit interdenominational organization called Adventures in Missions. The countries on the route I will take are Swaziland, Nepal, India, and Guatemala. One of the most amazing things about the World Race Gap Year is that it is not only a mission trip, but also an intensive discipleship program designed to launch my generation into our specific Kingdom calling. My team of about fifty young adults will serve in partnership with various ministries in communities we will be traveling to and serving. I will be doing things like helping with disaster relief, mass feedings, helping sex-trafficking victims, teaching English, building houses, evangelizing, and more.
My fundraising goal for this mission is $15,800. I fully trust that God will provide. This will cover the cost of airfare, food, housing, transportation, and any other ground expenses. I am so excited to answer the calling God has placed on my heart. This will be a life changing experience. I would love for you to be a part of it. I have a blog that you can subscribe to that I will be posting updates on leading up to and throughout my trip: abigaillineberry.theworldrace.org. In my mind, fundraising shouldn’t just be a request for money for a cause- it should be an opportunity to spread awareness for the cause. I read some statistics in a book recently:
“The truth is that the 143 million orphaned children and the 11 million who starve to death or die from preventable diseases and the 8.5 million who work as child slaves, prostitutes, or under other horrific conditions and the 2.3 million who live with HIV add up to 164.8 million needy children. And though at first glance that looks like a big number, 2.1 billion people on this earth proclaim to be Christians.
The truth is that if only 8 percent of the Christians would care for one more child, there wouldn’t be any statistics left” (Kisses from Katie, 2011). The Concert Fundraiser Worship Night will be a time for family, friends, and anyone supportive of mission work to come out and worship, to hear about what I’m doing, and to donate if they feel lead. There will be a donation booth set up with information about the World Race and how to contact me and/or donate. Coffee and snacks will be available. There will be a slideshow of me in Guatemala (or something of the sort) on the big screen while I play. I’ll have a set list and probably take a break halfway through to chat with people. If all goes well, hopefully, this will be a great night that will leave people with full hearts and a new awareness of the need for missions.
