“We should learn how to give. But we should not regard giving as an obligation, but as a desire.” – Mother Teresa
Many of you already know Lindsay. Lindsay is a junior at Benedictine College studying Biology/Chemistry. She volunteers for several organizations such as Boys and Girls Club and Benedictine’s Hunger Coalition. She spends her fall and spring breaks on mission trips helping those more unfortunate than herself. This seems to be a calling for Lindsay.
In Lindsay's own words, "What I have grown to love is the Christian belief that Christ resides within every individual person and therefore every person should be treated with respect, dignity, and honor. In charity, I am able to see the poor, sick, and vulnerable not as a problem, but rather as individual human beings who long to receive and to give love."
This summer Lindsay has the opportunity to spend time at San Lucas Mission in Guatemala. She spent time there on a school mission trip back in 2007 and fell in love with the Guatemalan people. She is amazed at the joy and love of these hard working people despite their great poverty. Although Lindsay will be of great assistance to them, she believes they will enrich her life more.
Lindsay normally works the entire summer to earn the money needed to pay her tuition. In order to make this trip to San Lucas Mission, she needs to raise the remaining amount needed to attend Benedictine College next year. While she will ‘give by going’, you can ‘go by giving’.
If you wish to help this amazing young lady make this mission trip, you can! Sue Ables Photography will make it easy for you! If you are planning a family, child(ren), or Senior photo session this year that you’ve been putting off for too long, pay for your session ($75) by April 30, 2010 and it will go directly to Lindsay’s Mission Fund! Actual session can be scheduled for any time. Lindsay will try to chronicle her journey and share it with all of us through a blog, if she has internet capabilities while there. We will keep you posted and share the information for that when it becomes available early this summer.
Just click the yellow button below to 'HELP LINDSAY' or contact me directly at email@example.com! If you wish for you're donation to include a portrait session, make sure your donation is at least $75. It's that simple!
I do want to add that in the event Lindsay is unable to raise the $3000 needed for her to make this trip, all donations that are made will be given to the San Lucas Mission in your names.
Thanks to everyone!
