Operation Education I am happy to announce that all the Operation Education kids were sponsored!!!! Praise God. I am so blessed to be a part of helping these kids go to school and I want you to know it is impossible for me to do this without your support.
Other than finding sponsors for the kids things have been a quite.
If you are one of my sponsors and have not paid your sponsorship please remember it is due by this Wednesday, October 15th. Please try to pay on-time. I have to wire the money as soon as possible to purchased the uniforms.
December Trip - December 9-17th
I am planning the December trip and happy to announce we are having a WEDDING!!!! As of today there are at least 5 couples and we are hoping for at least 10. These families can not afford to marry so they live together. Many of these couples have recently accepted Christ and now want to make things right. I am so excited for them. We plan on making it a beautiful wedding with food, cakes and lots of decorations. I can't wait to be a part of this wonderful moment.
In order to make this happen I am looking for sponsors who would like to bless these couples.
It will cost $25 per couple for just the marriage license, the food for all the guest and the wedding cakes will run around $300 and about another $100 for 200 chairs, wedding bouquets and other items so I am believing God for $700.
If you would like to be a part of this awesome event please either donate online or send in your donation before November 15th. If you are married can you imagine living with your spouse for 10 years or more and not be married simply because you can not afford $25.
I can't wait to come home with pictures. My husband, the best photographer I know is going with me this year. I will have beautiful pictures to share when I get back. I'm so excited...
If you would like to join me on this trip please contact me as soon as possible for more details.
Pastor Arturo has asked for prayer for his family. Two weeks ago his son was in a horrible accident and was on a ventilator in a Costa Rican hospital. He is doing better today but I do not have a lot of details. Pastor Arturo has gone to see him. I hope to know more soon. For now, pray for a speedy recovery and no lasting issues.
The rain still has not shown up. It has rained some but by this time of the year they are getting rain for hours a day but right now they barely get some each day. A lack of corn is still an issue and very little work. I am planning on sending money for food to help out but will now have to wait for Pastor Arturo to return. God's timing is perfect so I know the blessing will be right on time for when the families need it the most. Please pray for their spirits to be lifted during this very trying time and for provision in all areas of their lives.
In addition to prayers for Pastor Arturo and his family please pray for my family and the members of the December team, Sara, Tiffany and my husband Terry as we plan for our time to minister in the community. It will be the first time back since the young man was killed so I hope God will turn this horrible tragedy and turn it into an opportunity to tell them how important it is to know your future.
As always thanks so much for being a huge blessing to me and this community. God is doing great things there and I can't wait to see what he has planned.
God Bless all of you,
