Gavin is going to South Africa

2023 South Africa | July 21 - August 1 Watershed

Jul 21, 2023 - Aug 1, 2023



My name is Gavin Grubbs, and I am currently a Sophomore at Innovation Academy. I am a Boy Scout on my way to Eagle, I am very active with my robotics club, and I love to play tennis. I have also had the privelege to be involved in Perimeter Church's Highschool Ministry through Discipleship and our Wednesday night WASH group.

I am going with a group of 30 highschoolers and adults to South Africa this summer, July 19th - July 30th. While on the ground, we will be serving alongside City Hope Church as they serve Impact Africa and Philile in Johannesburg. Impact Africa serves the local community by teaching them English and life skills while providing a school for their children during the week. All of this is done through relationship and aims to bring the gospel to them where they are at.  This is Impact Africa’s 19th year serving this community. Philile is a school for inner city children who come from a struggling economic class. We will play games with them, sing for them, and bring much joy to their school day. We will also get to interact with the Youth Ministry of City Hope Church called City Yth. We will attend their ministry, build relationships with their students and worship the Lord together. As we are going to South Africa we are going to grow together in our faith and follow God as we help serve the South Africans. 

As I go on this monumental trip of my life, which is my first mission trip and my first time out of the United States, I will need your help. There are multiple ways you can help, which one of the main ways is through prayer. As God is all powerful and all knowing, He is the perfect one to ask for safety and growth while we are going on this trip. We will be working with many people who have probably never heard of Jesus or the Gospel, so we ask God to use us to be salt and light to the Earth and to use us to spread His Kingdom. We will love your prayers for our safety as we are crossing the sea to another country. Prayer is an amazing and powerful gift we have from God, and it is very helpful.

Also, another way you can help is through giving. I will need to raise $3,250 to be able to go on this life changing adventure. That is a lot of money and I will need all the help I can get to raise it. Any amount of money is appreciated and will bring me closer to my goal.

When you give or pray, my journey will also become your journey through your support. As for every person sent out for God their is a support base that helps. Please help me to go to South Africa and join my support base. I will also be sending updates as we get closer to the journey. Thank you for reading this letter and thank you for your support, prayfully or financially.
