Dear Family and Friends,
My dad (Mark Shaw, Sr.) and I are going to England and Romania in just 2 months! Dad’s being sent by a church in Kentucky to teach addictions material in churches there, and I’ll be going as his assistant, helping with technology, journaling, set-up for conferences, and working in other unseen aspects of ministry trips. We’re leaving on Thursday, November 6, and return home on Sunday, November 16.
Dad’s costs are covered by the church, but I would need to pay my own way. As a 16 year old with a first job, I’ve been working at a daycare this summer and saving up for this trip. So here’s the total cost for me to go:
$1,470.30 for plane ticket
$ 175.00 other incidental costs
=  $1,645.30 TOTAL
So far, we have received $493.00, leaving a new balance of $1,152.30. I am SO thankful to those who have already given toward this once-in-a-lifetime trip!
If you would be willing to give, I would be so grateful for any amount! Donations can be made payable to “Truth in Love Ministries” (a 501c-3 nonprofit ministry that my dad started in 2007) and would need to be marked “Romania” in the “FOR:________” line at the bottom left corner of a check. All donations are 100% tax deductible and will be used 100% for this trip.
Mail checks to:
Truth in Love Ministries
PO Box 367
Clay, AL 35048
You can also donate online at if that is easier. I am very excited to serve on this trip with my dad. I can’t wait to give you a report afterward about the trip and what was accomplished!
Thank you for prayerfully considering this request,
Sarah Shaw
