Update as of March 8, 2022
We are so grateful to everyone who has contributed here and through the Chapel of the Cross!
As of today we have exceeded our $5000 fundraising goal and additional funds are helping us to purchase school supplies, biotins and other supplies to bring with us to the Episcopal Church community Cristo Liberador.
Please keep us in your prayers as we prepare to travel and served alongside our neighbors in Quito March 11-18.
You speak in my heart and say, "Seek my face." Your face, Lord, will I seek. -Psalm 27:11
The Episcopal Campus Ministry at UNC-Chapel Hill is sending an 8-person team to Quito, Ecuador in March of 2022. Partnering with Education Equals Hope will allow our student leaders to build on virtual relationships that began in the spring of 2021. Working in-person to serve with an education-based Ministry Site, our volunteers will learn first-hand the challenges and joys experienced by the community where our gifts and skills will be put to use. Your support of our team through prayers and donations will result in bringing you along as participants in our service-learning experience and we will share back with our supporters the learnings along the way.
A Lilly Endowment, Inc. Transformative Travel grant and Student Mission Fundraising at The Chapel of the Cross will cover 2/3 of the cost of this mission's experience. Student participants are raising the final one-third contribution through this site and other fundraising events in the spring ’22 semester.
Join us in supporting student leaders as they broaden their understanding of mission and ministry as partners with our neighbors in Ecuador and build community across the continents, where we will seek and see God’s presence both near and far and always be changed for the better for it.
