First is Pray
There are certain individuals who have offered to pray for me on this trip on a regular basis. I prepare prayer updates for these individuals and email it to them (or, in some cases send them through the mail). If you feel led of the Lord to be included in this group of intercessors just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and include in the subject line "add me to your prayer list." That's all you need. I'll include you on the cc list and you will receive the next prayer update via email.
You Can Help by Providing Medicines and Vitamins
There just might be a medical service provider or pharmacist reading this blog. You might be interested in this...

When I say "medicines" think of over-the-counter type drugs. Here are some examples:
a. Pain reliever - Ibuprofen (Motrin), Acetaminophin (Tylenol) [Need a lot of this]
b. Antihistamine - Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride (Benadryl); Loratadine; Fexofenadine; Pheniramine Maleate
c. Cough suppressant- Dextromethorphan HBr; Benzonatate
d. Expectorant - Guaifensesin
e. Decongestant - Phenylephrine Hydrochloride
f. Antibiotic creams
g. Anti-diarrhea - Loperamide (Imodium)

Our Mission Team takes a lot of M&Vs with us in our suitcases ("mission suitcase" or "pharmacy suitcase"). When we arrive we are able to stock the pharmacy table immediatley and go to work. The more M&Vs we have on hand the more we can distribute to the poor, needy people that we come to serve!
If you are capable of providing free M&Vs contact me at email@example.com. You can either mail them to me, or if you live anywhere close to western North Carolina I will come to you and pick them up. I will pack them in my "pharmacy suitcase" and take them with me.
You Can Help Through Giving
There are some things that you can do through giving that you might not have thought about. The Lord has already provided all the money necessary for me to join the Team in December. However, there are some areas where funds could greatly help. If you feel led to give an offering to the Lord by means of supporting this Team here are some areas of financial need.
1. Medical Doctor - Nelson David
You can help provide M&Vs. The way to do that is by giving cash. M&Vs are inexpensive in Cambodia, only a fraction of the retail cost in the USA. If the Mission Team had "M&V funds" on hand we could use that money to buy M&Vs in Cambodia and restock our supplies 'on the fly.' Need = $1,500
3. Extra Van
It is possible that we may need to take a 3rd Van on this two week Mission Trip due to the size of the Team. If that is true, that 3rd Van will cost $1,500. That's what it costs to pay for renting the vehicle plus the salary of the driver who owns it and drives it for the Mission Team. I will update this page if that turns out to be true.
