Can you believe that November is hear and Christmas is just a month and a week away? Time is flying by and this year has gone by so fast and my December trip is just around the corner. My team and I have been working hard getting ready for the upcoming trip. Terry and I will be going along with 5 people. We will have a wedding seminar, a wedding for 30 couples, sending 83 kids to school, ministering at a home for child slaves and blessing kids at an orphanage. It's going to be a great week.
I have been raising money every way possible. I am currently writing a program in Access for a company and working an event on Thanksgiving day which will help pay for the wedding and all the extras.
I have been blessed to have people donate toward the wedding and toward other much needed items which has helped my planning a lot.
All the kids in Ceibita have been sponsored. Thanks so much to all of you who sponsored one. 83 kids will go to school next year all because of people like you.
I have been blessed to have a youth group from North Point Community Church make Christmas gift bags for each child at the orphanage and I'm getting new shoes for them also. Can't wait to bless them for Christmas.
We have purchased all the uniforms for kids in Ceibita and their backpacks. All are ready for us to distribute when we get there in December. I'm so excited and can't wait to see their faces.
Please pray for all the logistics to be worked out. I have many issues we are facing. It's hard planning a wedding for 30 couples across and ocean and with the language barrier. Not to mention the person helping me in Nicaragua is a man. Sorry guys but not many of you are wedding planning kind of people.
Please keep me in prayer as I am working extremely long hours 6 to 7 days a week and I'm wore out. It just happens to be a busy time in my life and this time will pass but until it does I need the strength to get through it.
Thanks so much for all the continued prayers. This upcoming trip is one of the biggest of the 21 I have taken. The bigger it gets the hard the enemy works and right now he is working pretty hard on all of our team.
Thanks so much, keep praying.
I am still in need of some remaining school supplies. If you have any you need to give me, let me know. If you would like to pick up some I need pencils, colored pencils, erasers and pencil sharpeners.
Thank you for helping me change the world one child, one family, one community at a time.
