In August of 2014, both Katie and I have the thrilling opportunity to be a part of our church’s mission trip to Kenya. We will travel with a team from Atlantic Shores Baptist Church and will work with children sponsored by Project Lucas. While there, we will work with orphans who live in extreme poverty, children who are affected by HIV/AIDS and related diseases, and most importantly, we will share the unconditional love of Christ.
Case in point: In December, I decided to crochet scarves in hopes of raising some money for our trip. Within five days, I had over 60 orders. To date, I have sold over 80 scarves, I still have more orders coming in, and we've raised well over $400 (probably more than that, but I haven't done he final accounting yet). We say impossible, God says possible. (We've also opened an Etsy shop - Mama Mary & Me!)
We still have about $5,000 left to raise over the next few months, and while my crochet speed has increased greatly, I don't think I can make enough scarves or hats to raise that much money. With that, I would like to ask you to prayerfully consider supporting us. Every dollar gets us that much closer to our goal, so please don't think that any amount is too small. (Checks should be made payable to Atlantic Shores Baptist Church and are fully tax deductible. Please see below for more specific instructions.)
If you are unable to help us financially at this time, your prayers are greatly coveted and desired! Specifically, you can pray that, even now, hearts will be prepared for His message, that our team will be unified for His purposes, and that we will be open to what God wants to teach us!
