Blown Away

Wow… I know God provides. I know he is a miracle worker. I have never doubted my call to Tanzania and I knew he would work it out. Knowing all that, I am still in awe of all that has happened in the last week! I am now within $1,000 of 90% and 5,000 of my goal. With my fundraising event next week, I am confident I will be in Tanzania by the end of September!!!!

Not only has the Lord provided in support, I has provided for the silent auction. I have been discouraged because business and people are constantly being asked for donations. How does one person (me) compare to a large organization? Why would they donate so I can do ministry in Tanzania? I actually had a dream I had been asked to speak at a large youth group about my ministry. I was excited to share and thought they would be taking a collection for me. When I got there, I realized I was one of probably 50 people there. So discouraged. But there was no need to be He provides!!! Check out this amazing list of items that continues to grow daily! Please thank these business next time you are there and if you haven’t ever been there, check them out! Thank you! The Facebook Event is updated daily.
