“As many of you know, I had the opportunity to travel with the Taylor Lighthouse program to Guatemala in 2008, where 11 of my fellow students and I spent a month serving alongside Mission Impact. I am excited to share with you that I have been invited back to serve as co-sponsor of the 2012 Lighthouse trip.

“I am spending Monday evenings, this semester, with a wonderful group of Taylor students, working to prepare for the upcoming trip in January. This year, we will be taking 12 Environmental Science students and two Economics students to work in Antigua and Santa Maria de Jesus. We will once again be joining the Mission Impact team to build latrines, biosand filters, stoves, and rainwater catchment and filtration systems for cisterns. There is also the possibility of undertaking an urban agriculture project.

 “As co-sponsor, I am not required to raise funds, but I wanted to share with you a brief update on the continuing Guatemala mission, and perhaps help my students in their own fundraising efforts. In addition to sending several support letters of my own, I am planning a personal financial contribution to each of my students.

“Above all, I ask that you keep us in your prayers . If you would like more information on our trip, or Taylor’s Lighthouse missions, feel free to contact the Taylor World Outreach Office at 765-998-5362, or get in touch with me directly at meganesharp@gmail.com.  Also, I would encourage you to look into the ongoing ministry of Mission Impact by visiting their website, www.missionimpact.com.

Thank you for your support!”

God Bless, Megan Sharp
