Nothing but wonderful things to report on our recent Fund Raiser, “Changing Lives Here and Across the Ocean”! So many of you were so gracious to send items for us to sell. Your talent and generosity is amazing and brought a lot of money to keep getting these dresses and shorts to the children of Africa. I also want to thank those of you that sent checks in lieu of attending. It is so encouraging to receive them and to know that God continues to provide for the children through all of you. Thank you so much for the part that each of you played in this success.
We enjoyed a beautiful evening, with the supporters of our ministry, at the Italian American Hall. Our colors this year were Black, Red and Green; Black symbolizing the indigenous people of the continent, red symbolizing their suffering and green for the hope of tomorrow. You are all part of that hope and I thank you on behalf of the children. And of course, big thanks to Tim Ryan for another amazing year as Auctioneer!
I am happy to report that donations are still arriving and as of now, after costs our total is well over $11,000. We have already sent out two shipments today and there will be more to quickly follow. I am still looking for your mission teams, so please approach your churches to see if we might be able to send dresses to your teams, that are in the field serving. Please contact them and see if they will agree to receive and distribute the dresses for the children. There is no cost to them. We happily send them in the name of Jesus. We’re also looking for teams that are going to the mission fields that will agree to take some dresses and shorts in their extra bags. Until we actually get the dresses on the little girls, our mission is not complete, so please please talk to your church mission groups and have them contact me through this website or directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We really are changing lives here and across the ocean, as we work together to serve the most vulnerable of God’s children. Please continue to pray for this ministry as it grows, that we stay focused and in submission to HIS will and not our own.
Thank you and much love,
