2011 Spring Break Trip letter


How are you and your family? We trust God is as active in your lives as in ours! Travis and I are having a busy and successful this year, Travis has changed his concentration from Theology to Biblical Studies and hopes to graduate in December of 2011. {fingers crossed!}

We want to share with you a challenging opportunity that God has presented to us. First, from March 6 to 15 God has offered us the chance to go to The Holy Land with Truett Seminary. This 10-day trip; including Sea of Galilee, Nazareth, Megiddo, Jerusalem, Gethsemane and Bethlehem, will be an educational once in a life time opportunity to see and discover the places where Jesus walked while also learning more about the people there and the culture. Second, from May 15 to 29th Travis has the opportunity to visit Morocco and Tunisia through the Christian Encounters with Islam: Ancient and Future course with Truett. He will have the chance to visit Christian, Muslim and Roman sites. The topic of this is of course is relations with Muslims and how to minister to the Muslims of North Africa.

While God has opened up a door for us to develop a greater heart of compassion for His people around the world, the exciting part is that you will be able to share in this compassion in several ways. First, you can help pray for us and the fellow students and spouses going on both of these trips. We will need prayers that God will prepare us for our trip to the Holy Land and as Travis travels to North Africa with his fellow students. We will also need prayers that our financial needs will be met. At this time we need $2,600 each to attend the Holy Land trip and $3,000 for Travis to attend the North Africa trip. We recognize that God will provide and put our trust in Him.

Another way you can be involved is to help provide that financial support. Would you consider supporting us with a small donation? We will need to raise as much as possible to pay for our trip and other items. Please make checks payable to Travis and Shelby Clarke, and note which trip you would like to support. Whether you feel led to contribute financially, through prayer, or both, all of your support is appreciated.

We look forward to going to and learning about the places where our Savior spend His earthly days and letting you know all about how God has worked through this team when we return from these amazing travels!

God Bless,

Shelby & Travis Clarke

This kind of trip is a once in a lifetime, and due to the cost we have decided to supplement our savings by doing a little fundraising through the use of our talents. I am makeing homemade artisian loafs for a minimum donation of $5.00. These are homemade and freshly baked. Very yummy too! 🙂

We will also be selling book markers for 1 dollar. These are also made at home and will come in a variety of styles and colors.

If you would you like to donate please email me { shelbylclarke(at)gmail(dot)com} and I will send you my address or you can donate through Paypal via credit card.
