Ok, you are due for an update. I finally received my exact balance due yesterday and I can now officially report that you did it! We did it! The entire amount due for my missions trip to Zimbabwe was raised, with an excess of about $26. But don’t worry……..I’ll use that $26 toward the numerous supplies I have to purchcase for my trip. I am beyond grateful to my “senders”. That word “senders” means a lot to me. Without you, I would not be going to Africa to serve my Savior, to minister for Him and hopefully help solidfy some precious souls for His glorious kingdom.
I have been a “sender” before, and never did I understand the power of what I was doing until now, as I am so humbled by the incredible effort so many people have made to send me. My senders have been passionate, compassionate, generous, loving, and with the spirit of servants themselves. Some of my senders want to go too, and they will when they can. Some of my senders are struggling in this economy. Some of my senders are total strangers. Some of my senders are old friends from High School who I haven’t seen in years and years and years. Some of my senders are business associates, and friends.
I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you each.
My senders are:
Cindy, Pam & Fred, Jeanne, Julie H., Elaine S., Monty, Chuck & Laura, Sujette & Jim, Sharon & Brad, Gigi, Lisa & Greg, Gia & Danny, Karen & Bill, Belinda, and Gretchen
I am telling my audience who you are because you bless me. I want to show you off like ornaments on a Christmas tree, all sparkly and shining from within, special, delicate, a treasure year after year. I love you all!!!!!
**As a side note here, I know that a few donations have been received by my church for the trip I will go on to the Dominican Republic in March….however I do not know who made those donations (other than 1 friend who told me). If you made a donation for that trip and meant to remain anonymous, that is perfectly fine and I deeply appreciate it. If you want me to know who you are, please tell me so that I can properly thank you!!!!! And also please know that if you want to help send me to the DR in March, there is still opportunity.
Thank you also to those who continue to support me in prayer. The time is getting closer. My nerves are still pretty wrecked and I still break down at the thought of leaving my children, missing the bulk of the Christmas season, meeting hungry orphans face to face, flying, just all of it. This isn’t like taking a girls trip to the beach……please continue praying for me and all my anxiety!
