|Spend 2 weeks of your summer with ZOEgirl
23 March 2005
Having traveled on summer mission trips for the past two years, Chrissy, Alisa and Kristin have gained a renewed passion and vision to reach the world. As part of that effort, they have launched ZOEgirl Missions, a way to partner with their listeners in reaching out to areas in need. The first official ZOEgirl Missions trip took place last summer in Quito, Ecuador. Partnering with Big World Ventures, ZOEgirl took a missions group to visit retirement homes, play with children in orphanages, perform drama and music, and participate in various work and building projects for churches in Quito.
"If we hadn't done these trips we wouldn't be the group we are now," says Alisa. "The girls who have gone on these trips have inspired more songs than they know."
"These trips have really opened my eyes to the world," Chrissy adds. "It has given me a new appreciation for life and has taught me so much in the process."
Glancing back, in the rearview mirror of their career, it's the relationships they build, the lives they touch and the impact they make for Christ that fuels this trio of women more than anything else.
"Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession"
Psalm 2:8 (NIV)
"At the end of the day, in 20 years, I want to get a letter that says, I gave my heart to Jesus at a ZOEgirl concert,'" Alisa says. "To me, that's success. It's great to sell albums and win awards, but we aren't truly successful if we aren't leading people to heaven. That's eternal."
Chrissy adds, "If we were remembered for anything else it wouldn't seem like we had fulfilled what we know God has called us to do."
What will YOU be remembered for?
This July, ZOEgirl is planning their second ZOEgirl Mission trip to Ecuador, partnering again with Big World Ventures (www.bigworld.org), and taking people with various gifts. Chrissy, Alisa and Kristin will bring with them individuals, families and youth groups that will minister through drama and music, visit orphanages and nursing homes and do work projects at local churches and day cares. They will spend time with the people, nurturing and serving them with whatever they need, whether it's a haircut, a hug, a prayer or someone to sit with them and hold their hand. It's ZOEgirl's hope that you will join them in touching these lives and bring the hope of Christ.
You can apply to be a part of this life changing mission trip by contacting ZOEgirl Missions staff at 1-800-599-8778 or by printing off the application forms at www.bigworld.org. Space is limited, so we encourage you to apply today.
"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."
The purpose and heart of Chrissy, Alisa and Kristin is powerfully evident on their newest release - "Room To Breathe", available now.
I won't give up, I won't give in/ I'm ready for my life to start again/ I won't back down, I'll stand my ground/ The time is now to show the love I've found/ I've got a reason to breathe, I've got the freedom to stand/ The future is mine, I'll give it all I can/ To break down the walls that hold me in/ It's my reason to live
Are you ready for your reason to live? Join the adventure...
