Scary, right? I remember, back when we had only gap insurance with a huge deductible, writing that I needed $10,000 by Monday, barely a week later, to be able to settle a Florida hospital bill and see $5000 of it written off. The following Monday, because God moved so many people, we sent $10,000. It still gives me goosebumps.
Now I need $7000.00 by Monday. But, thankfully, it’s not for hospitals or surgeries or expensive procedures. I need $7000.00 because the Lord saved my life and put me back into ministry to share the Hope and Love of Christ. He answered my prayers and restored me to doing something I love so much – leading teams of people to changed lives through serving impoverished people. Because He restored my health, I am going on my first mission trip since 2010 and our team of 18 desperately needs you.
We’ve raised about $25,000 of the $32,000 needed to go to Guatemala in April to serve the 350 children in a school in Oratorio. I’m asking you to join us by giving of your resources and with prayer. I’m thinking maybe you could look at it like a Kickstarter fundraiser with these levels. (I’m totally serious about the rewards!)
$500 Book Sponsor
You’ll get a custom-designed, hardcover book filled with full cover photos of lots of pictures I take of our work in Guatemala and I’ll have all our team members sign it. And you’ll get a team t-shirt to wear too.
$250 T-shirt Sponsor
You’ll be styling in your own Guatemala team T-shirt.
$100 Reading Sponsor
I’ll gather up a circle of kids and read a children’s book from you to them.
$50 Postcard Sponsor
We’ll mail you a team thank you postcard from Guatemala.
$25 Soccer Sponsor
I’ll run around playing soccer with some kids in your name.
$10 Hug Sponsor
I will give a big squeeze to a child from you explaining that there are people who care.
I’m hoping this is kind of a fun way to look at helping us and puts some real teeth on your support and let’s you know how important your partnership is. I have more than 5000 people who subscribe to this blog. If just 10% of you helped it could make a huge difference.
What if we raise more than $7000.00? How cool would it be to drop a big gift into the hands of the school directors who are dreaming of one day building a roof over the play area so that kids can still play outside during the rainy season??? So cool!
So many of you support me in my fight to SURVIVE. I’m praying you consider helping us now as Robin and I lead this team, because today we THRIVE.
