an update on the fund-raising for my upcoming missions trip to Ireland: it’s gone very, very well, and we thank God for swiftly and generously blessing the finances of this trip. in fact, as of today we’re at 120% of the necessary funds raised, so we’ll be sending the extra to Jim and Laura‘s account (they’re going to Ireland long-term). so if you’ve considered giving and havent, first of all, thank you! secondly, dont send it to me! consider another effort that needs financial support, such as Jim and Laura and/or World Harvest, or something different like Bethany Christian Services perhaps, or to one of the many missions and relief agencies serving those in need throughout the world.
so many thanks to all 23 families who chose to generously give to this trip, and thanks to God for moving in all of you to do so. it is so encouraging and confirming that this is what I should be doing. please continue to pray!
