We leave in just over a week. It’s hard to believe that it’s almost here. We started the preparations for this trip in May of 2010. Speaking to people, adding to our team and beginning the process of preparing our hearts (and wallets).
The Lord has been faithful the whole way. When we would begin to doubt, He would show His glory!
Now we are at the last piece of preparation and are surely glorifying Him!
My dining room has a corner full of baby formula, candy, craft items, cloth diapers, medicines, personal gifts, and clothing. Other team members have clothing items, hand tools, candy, prosthetic legs and other medical supplies.
I have found today that my employer, a local health system, is going to help with medical supplies!! I think we may need extra baggage? 🙂 It’s a good problem to have.
We cannot thank you ALL enough for your help. Thank you to Ngan’s friends who enjoyed Bud n’Brunch at her place and provided funds. We thank the people at St Andrews UMC for their support! You provided monetary funds, items for the yard sale, your presence and your prayers. Even while in the midst of working to fund your own trip to Mozambique!
We give thanks for the people of Va Beach UMC! For your prayers, gifts, presence and always supporting us in amazing ways!
We give special thanks to those of you that gave through this blog, online. To a wonderful High School friend, an amazing cousin and a blessed new friend that we haven’t had time to hang out with often enough. Your gifts of support are priceless.
To those of you that came to each of our fundraisers and supported us with your presence and love, we praise God for you! Thanks to our co-workers that have stepped up and have shared both their money and many donated items!
This has been a journey of watching God work through those around us. We are so very excited to see how He will take those gifts and allow us to share them with the people in Ethiopia. We take each of you with us on this trip.
We covet your continued prayers as we continue on this journey!
