A Missionary Kid going on a Mission Trip
Madison, our 15-year-old missionary daughter, will be leaving Honduras for the month of July to serve as a cross-cultural missionary intern in New York City.
In the next 10-days Madison must raise nearly $3,000. We would like you to prayerfully consider supporting her New York internship.

What is the internship?
Madison will be working at different churches in the city and will also be spending a large amount of her time with individuals and families who wish to become international missionaries. Madison's efforts will assist in the preparation of sending 30+ future missionaries all over the world. Our family attended this very same training when Madison was 11 and she was under intern supervision. In this one-month internship she will be lending her four-years of experience as a Missionary Kid to help prepare future Missionary Kids for their work around the globe.
Why New York City?
Our mission sending agency (MTW) holds this training each year in New York City. There are 8 million people living in New York City. Thirty-six percent of the population is foreign born and over 170 languages are spoken in the Big Apple. This cultural diversity makes New York an ideal location to expose new missionaries to different lifestyles.
Madison's desire to serve others is a great testament to her heart. We wish to encourage her and allow that servants heart to flourish.
Please consider supporting Madison through prayer and financial support. Thank you for your prayerful consideration.
Mike, Erin and Madison Pettengill
