Howdy y’all! I’m pretty excited to be writing this update. Know why? It means that the India mission trip is one week closer! My grand total still stands at $1700 raised out of $4000. However, there are some things comin’ down the pipe, and you never know when God might inspire somebody who reads one of these updates to help me out.
Some exciting things to share….. 1.) A friend of mine that I was having dinner with last night expressed real, like REALLY REAL interest in also going on the India mission trip. I can tell you that as a missionary, one of the greatest sources of joy is when you get others excited about and actually interested in going on mission trips. Most importantly it means that you have yet another person who can really connect with you.
2.) During one of my many searches online for airfare, I discovered that it was actually CHEAPER to fly directly back into Lafayette than flying into Houston. Praise God! Now, who knows if it will actually be that cheap by the time i’m able to buy the tickets (sometime in late April), but, the fact that it’s like that is huge huge huge.
3.) I realized that in addition to blessing me generously with donations, y’all can offer up some Lenten sacrifices for my trip! You already know what kinds of sacrifices you can offer, so I’ll leave that up to you to determine. I’m gonna go ahead and list some things you can pray/sacrifice for in regards to this mission trip.
Don’t forget that online donations can be made in one of two places: http://www.fmcmissions.com/donate (make sure to specify “Sid Savoie – India Mission Trip”, or http://www.gofundme.com/6x4fyg. If you would prefer to mail in a donation, send it to Family Missions Company, 12624 Everglade Road, Abbeville, LA, 70510. Again, make sure to specify on the check “Sid Savoie – India Mission Trip”.
Hope y’all have a blessed week!
