I will be traveling to Chinle, Arizona with Christian Veterinary Missions to spay and neuter dogs and cats for 2 two days in June to support the Navajo Nation. The goal is to alter 25 animals per day. There are 2-3 technicians and 1 veterinarian in the mobile veterinary clinic in each three-day event.
Day 1: Exams, vaccinations, check in.
Day 2: Surgery all day.
Day 3: Surgery all day
The Navajo Nation sponsors much of this trip, but the costs of flying out, staying, and renting a car are more than the trip costs. Therefore, I am attempting to raise $600 to off set the rest of the costs. This is the first mission that I will be going on while not employed by a veterinary clinic in the usual sense. There will be no vacation pay check waiting when I come home, so there will be no paycheck for my family at all that week. Although this changes my financial dynamics a bit, I am blessed to be able to do this. I am so thankful that God has given me a heart for service and missions.
So here is the part that I ask you for help in any way that you can:
1. Pray for me – for safety, for knowledge, for a clear head, and a servant’s heart
2. Pray for the mission projects in the Navajo Nation and around the world – for openness, for love, for impact, for peace
3. Financial support – all donations (check or credit card) are tax-deductible in the United States of America, you just need to follow the directions below:
