We need your support!

Hello Everyone,
We are very excited to write you and tell you about what is going on in our lives! Mike and I have been doing wonderful in our first year of marriage, we can't believe that it's almost been a year since our wedding! Time has flown by! We would like to share some exciting news with everyone, and are hoping to get some support from you too! We are leading a missions trip to Guatemala on June 20-27 with a team from Seacoast Church. We have been preparing for this trip in many ways such as prayer, fundraisers, and staying healthy. We have not been on a missions trip together, so this is very exciting that we are able to help lead this youth missions team to Guatemala together as a married couple.

While we are in Guatemala we will be working with a local church by going into schools to do ministry, possibly going into some orphanages, and doing some street ministry to present the gospel of Jesus Christ. We just know that this trip will be a huge success. As a team, we have been meeting weekly doing team building activities, devotions, and praying as preparation for our trip. The team that we are going with consists of middle school and high school students from the Seacoast Long Point and Seacoast West Ashley campus. The most rewarding part of a trip like this is not only growing in our own spiritual walk with Jesus, but watching the students being affected by the trip and seeing their hearts being transformed spiritually closer to Christ.

We would like to ask you if you are willing to help us go on our trip and raise the $2000 that is needed to fund our trip to Guatemala. We feel very confident that since God has called us to lead this trip, He will also provide a way. We would greatly appreciate your prayerful consideration of giving financially to help us meet this need. If you choose to donate, we have made it very easy for you to donate online at our Seacoast Church website at this link:
Just remember your donation is tax deductible! If you don't feel comfortable contributing online you can make a check payable to Seacoast Church (For: Mike and Hilary Surratt Guatemala Trip) and send it to 750 Long Point Rd. Mt. Pleasant, SC 29464.

We also need prayer for the trip and ask you to please lift up these things as we go:

-Strength for us spiritually to do the work He has called us to do
-To prepare the people's lives that we are ministering to while we are in Guatemala
-Our team's health to remain strong before and throughout our trip
We thank you in advance for taking the time to consider supporting us prayerfully and/or financially. If you would like to more information on the trip or have any questions, please to not hesitate to contact Mike: or Hilary:
We look forward to sharing all of the exciting things that we experience on this trip with you upon our return.
Blessings in Christ,
Hilary and Mike Surratt :)

I have a huge heart for missions, here are some pictures of my trip to Costa Rica in July 2007:
