Just confirmed this past week that after last weekend’s bake sale, my fundraising total is around the $3400 mark. That means only $600 left to my goal of $4000! Isn’t that amazing? Praise God! From saying “Yes” a few months ago, with $0, to being only 3 months away, with almost all my money raised, it truly is a testament to God’s providence.
Please continue to pray for the latest fundraising letter that arrived at all my benefactors’ addresses a little over a week ago, that through sharing the news of my mission work, these generous souls would help me reach my goal. Please also pray for the trip, for all those who are part of the trip, whether it be my fellow missionaries, or the people we’ll serve. You can also pray for a friend of mine who is feeling very called to go on this trip, that she would be filled with faith and trust in God and begin to take those steps and know that God will provide.
Last but not least, please pray for my mission trip to St. Lucia this week. St. Lucia was my first love, as far as missions is concerned. That was my first mission post as a full-time missionary, and I have many fond memories of that place. Me and Mark Eckstine (my mission partner from our time in St. Lucia) will be leading a group on an Easter week mission trip to St. Lucia. Mark arrives Tuesday to begin preparations for the group, and I arrive along with the group on Thursday afternoon. It looks like we’ll get started bright and early with a 3am traditional way of the cross through the streets of Castries on Good Friday morning! The rest of the week will be filled with nursing home visits, feeding the poor, evangelization projects, and work projects.
Y”all have a great week! God bless!
