If your church youth group does not have a sample fundraising support letter for Christian teens seeking financial support to attend a mission trip, then you can use the following sample:

Dear Friends and Family:
How are you doing? I hope that God is doing as many wonderful things in you life as He is in mine. I am having a wonderful year at Central High School, and feeling God's will to do more for the world around me.
I want to share with you a challenging ministry opportunity that God has presented to me. From June 10 through June 20 God has offered me the chance to go to Indonesia with a youth group from First Calvary Church. This 10-day mission trip will be reaching out and spreading gospel to the Indonesian people while also learning more about the people there and their culture.
While God has opened up a door for me 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 me and my fellow students. We will need prayers that God will prepare us for our visit and bless our efforts as we minister to the people of Indonesia. We will also need prayers that our financial needs will be met. At this time we need to raise $3,000 each to attend this trip, and that is quite a challenge!
Another way you can be involved is to help provide that financial support. Would you consider supporting me with a small donation? I have included a postage-paid envelope for you to use if you feel led to contribute. I will need to raise all my funds by May 1 in order to pay for airline tickets and other items. Please make checks payable to First Calvary Church. Whether you feel led to contribute financially, through prayer, or both, all of your support is appreciated.
I look forward to doing God's work in Indonesia and letting you know all about how God has worked through this team when I return in June.
God Bless,
Jane Student
