So we had our dinner Friday evening and it went really well. We raised about $4100 so we are roughly a third of the way to our goal! This isn't to say that we don't still have a ways to go, but we are doing well considering the short period of time we have been fundraising. I want to thank all of you for bringing us this far this quickly. God has blessed us in so many ways and the journey has just begun! We will be leaving for training Sept. 12th and our commissioning will be the 13th. We still have a lot of packing to do, but we are very excited to begin training and see what the Lord has in store for us there. Thank you all again for your support!

Fundraiser and update

Hello everyone! We just wanted to you let you all know that we will be having a dinner Friday evening at Croghan Mennonite Church from 5-7:30. Cost is $9 for adults, $5 for children 6-12 and 5 and under are free. We will be having pork loin, cole slaw, potatoes, corn, bread and pie for dessert. Take-outs will be available as well. So far we are doing fairly well with fundraising. We have enough for training in Sept. which is a huge blessing, but we still have a long ways to go before we have enough to leave for Africa. If you need a support letter or pledge form please let us know. Thank you for all of your support thus far, you are all such a blessing to us and we are so excited to have this opportunity to serve our Lord in this way, while having a life changing experience at the same time. Blessings to all of you!
