Dear Family and Friends,



My name is Alexander Byman and I am a Junior at Georgia State University in Atlanta. I am currently in GSU’s exercise science program on track to becoming a Physical Therapist. I am sending you this letter to let you know that I will be going to South Africa this summer!

Four years ago, when I was a Junior at Northview High School, I went on this same trip to South Africa in 2019 and was able to see God work in amazing ways through the people of South Africa as well as my peers whom I worked alongside with. After that trip, I've been encouraged since to share and live out my faith in high school and now in college. 

Four years later, here I am excited and eager to return back to South Africa as one of the adult leaders to lead alongside my high school friends. For me, my high school ministry played a huge role in me gaining my faith and growing my faith as well. It is such an honor to return with an amazing team of high school students, being able to pour in to them just as I was when I was in the same stage of life. 

During the 10 days that will be spent in South Africa, we will be having door-to-door Gospel conversations with the rural communities, serving children at an orphanage, and encouraging the Youth ministry at God First City Church to live out in their faith. In everything that we do, we will be sharing the good news of the Gospel; sharing about Jesus' life, death, and ressurection and what that means for us today! Please be praying that God can be preparing the hearts of the people of South Africa to be able to have a relationship with Jesus! 

I am reaching out to you because I need your support! I have been given the incredible task of individually raising $3,250. Any amount of donation will take me a step closer to my goal of $3,250. In high school, I ran a marathon to raise the money by asking people to sponsor me “x” amount for each mile I ran in the marathon (26.2 miles). This year I wanted to do something similar. Instead of running a marathon, I will be doing a 63 mile bike race on June 25! If you were to sponsor me this way, you can sponsor me any amount per mile and donate that much prior to the race or after! (Ex: $0.50 per mile=$31.5 and $1 per mile=$63). 

If you are unable to support me financially, please be supporting me prayerfully. Pray that God will give me and my team strength, confidence, and boldness to share our faith in South Africa. Pray that He will use us in an amazing way to make the good news of the Gospel known to all who do not know it. 

This isn't just my journey, but this becomes YOUR journey as well with your financial and prayerful support. The fact that you are taking the time to read my letter means a lot. Thank you for the financial and prayerful support; thank you for being a part of this amazing experience with me.


Thank you and God Bless!

I will be sending out weekly updates from now until the trip to share how God has been working in my life and what He has been teaching me! Be sure to keep up with my weekly updates and feel free to contact me with any questions about the trip at all!
