Let’s Send Emily to Bulembu, Swaziland!

Emily Saxton is a 16-year-old high school junior who aspires to be a nurse. She very much wants to travel with Mission Discovery to Bulembu, Swaziland from July 11 – 22, 2013 to serve the orphans of this village.

Her duties will involve cleaning, painting and helping to renovate homes that house eight orphans each, plus foster parents and grandparents. She will tutor children in the afternoons and help wherever needed.

But there is also a medical component to Emily’s trip. As a future nurse, Emily will see first hand the AIDS pandemic and the efforts of volunteers who are ushering Bulembu into a self-sustaining community. This is a mission trip like no other.

Here’s a little about Bulembu (bulembu.org):

On the border that separates South Africa from Swaziland is the community of Bulembu. Once a thriving mining town, Bulembu was abandoned in 2001 along with its hospital and 1,200 homes. A group of individuals purchased the town with a grand vision—the advancement of God’s kingdom in Swaziland. The goal is to renovate of as many homes as necessary to house 2,000 children orphaned by the AIDS pandemic, teach AIDS awareness, and create a self-sustaining community. Swaziland has the highest percentage of AIDS of any country in the world. So far, 300 children have found a home, a world-class education, and top-tier medical treatment at Bulembu.

Support Emily’s dream!

How will Emily raise the $5,000 needed to make the trip? Your tax-deductible donation will help! Whatever you give goes directly to Creekside Community Church (towards Emily’s trip). You can support Emily in three ways:

1. Send a tax-deductible check to Creekside Community Church, 1450 W. Grand Parkway South, STE G277, Katy, Texas 77494—and in the MEMO line put “Emily Saxton – Bulembu.”

2. You can also visit www.thecreekside.org and give through PayPal (bottom right – Give Online) and put “Emily Saxton – Bulembu” in the description.

3. Emily will be traveling with her mom, Melanie Saxton. You can donate airline miles, which is also  tax-deductible and will help tremendously with the cost of airfare.

From Emily

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart. By helping me go to Bulembu, you are literally changing lives (mine, and the orphans)! I believe this mission will make me a better nurse and certainly a better human being. Your generosity and kind-heartedness will help make it a reality. Please email me or my mom with any questions at melanie@sabrecat.org. You can also call us at 281-795-6420. I will be writing about my experience and sharing news with you about the orphans. I am ready to see what God has planned for me and this mission.”  

~~ Love, Emily
