Thank you to Metro South Church for hosting our Malawi 2010 Spaghetti Dinner Fund Raiser. We were able to raise, after costs, $1250 for the trip in September. Good job, team! Thanks also to Chad, Tina and Dave for providing the “Metro” sound. Team mate, Conne Kovach, outdid herself once again with an amazingly organized and delicious dinner, as we invited the community in and continued to raise awareness of the plight of the kids in Africa. Thank you!
We especially appreciate Bank of America for their community involvement both at our work night last Thursday and also for serving at the Spaghetti Dinner. LDFA was presented with a check donation for the trip in addition to their service. We are indebted to them and send our warmest thanks to the Goddard Road Banking Center in Taylor, Michigan
Another shout out to Joyce for the bid on the quilt! The high bid right now is $137. Only 4 more days to bid! Be sure to get your bids in before July 31, 2010.
Thank you for sending your mission teams to the website to contact us to take dresses to their host villages as they travel. We sent out 8 boxes to Washington this morning that will make their way to Malawi and tonight we are sending a car load of boxes to a team leaving for Kenya in October. I have plenty, thanks to all of you and encourage you to talk to your churches and get these dresses to the kids as they travel.
I’m also noticing more donations on the webpage for projects and team members who are traveling. Thank you to all of the generous supporters of this cause. Shipping costs are a challenge but with you working as the hands and feet of Jesus, we will get it done! We have received some really beautiful dresses this month and we’re seeing more and more of them sized and packaged. That is so helpful and we are so grateful. Thank you!!!
Don’t forget to mark your calendars to save the date for Saturday, November 13, 2010, for our Dinner Dance and Live Auction. We are working on some exciting sponsors for this year’s event and you will be blown away. Please be thinking about what you might have to donate as an auction piece. I can take it from now until the auction date. Things to consider are quilts, home made blankets or baby items, art, jewelry, and no telling what all! We really appreciate your help with this. I’ll keep you posted as the date gets closer.
September is coming fast. Thank you all for your continued support. I can’t wait to bring you pictures of the children wearing your dresses!
Love and gratitude,
