Supporting Ember This Summer

For those of you that might be interested in supporting some emerging global student leaders.... my 2011 support letter... sort of...

Dear Ember Tribe --

I'm delighted to give you a quick update about all things Ember - thank you again for your encouragement, support and investment in our efforts to connect and resource emerging global student leaders on their way to marking human history. Ember exists to reignite the Jesus fire in each student and to launch them out to serve a world in need and I'm always thrilled at your involvement with us.

2011 got off to a slow start in terms of work that actually stimulated student missions, but we've had some fun projects this spring, including two short term mission prep sessions [for a past Ember intern and his team going to Mozambique and for Bay Area Community Church's short term summer teams]; identifying and recruiting three high school interns for Fall 2011; and continuing to connect with like-minded allies of student missions.

Here are some upcoming projects in the works for which your prayers are coveted:
+ Ember has been invited to assist in teaching about the future of missions at Lake Aurora Christian Camp outside of Orlando at the end of June. The audience will primarily be middle schoolers and at least two of our team will attend. We are also supplementing this teaching with videos from some of our favorite people around the world, helping us teach about global realities and missional perspectives.
+ Potentially facilitating an inner city immersion for a team of college freshmen at the end of July, working with Serve the City Baltimore.
+ Some of our guides, board of directors and interns will be attending a conference hosted by The International Mentoring Network in Detroit at the end of September.
+ We've been asked to facilitate a leadership weekend in NYC this fall for student leaders from Salisbury University. This is a team we have worked with in the past and this group of students has an amazing history of initiating and sustaining community impact initiatives.

We estimate that our expenses for these next projects will be about $2000. If you feel led to support us financially, know that your support would be so appreciated and would go a long way in terms of empowering current and future global student leaders that are resolute about throwing fire.

There are two quick ways to send in support if you are so led:
1 - A check payable to The Ember Cast, Inc. You can send it to [get in touch with me]
2 - A bank transfer: routing code: [get in touch with me]
[3 - If you are local and want to give a donation, I will come to you with a cup of coffee.]
All your donations are tax deductible, you can expect a receipt within two weeks and we will never sell your information. And if you have a specific project you would like to fund, notate that as well.

Thank you again for joining with us. Throwing fire with you,
