Okay folks...this is where the rubber meets the road. I've received the confirmation email from the folks at Courageous Church and a Home in Haiti. Thats the great news... the scary bit is that i have to have $500.00 cash dollars with $100.00 of it as a deposit by Sunday July 4th! (that's THIS Sunday) in order to participate in this mission trip to Haiti. WOWSERS!!!!
As most of you know, the last time i was in Haiti was in June of 1985. i celebrated my 17th birthday there. The beautiful twins in the header pic where patients of the clinic at Christianville where i volunteered. It was such a life changing experience for me. I would soooo LOVE to go back.
But here's the deal...i. am. flat. broke. My job ended on June 12th and i have been doing a little bit of private home health care, otherwise i am gainfully unemployed. I also have several other big financial commitments in the weeks just prior to this time frame. We are already doing a big yard sale to help cover those expenses. I am and always have been a firm believer that things happen the way they do for a reason. That maybe the reason that i have not been able to get a job yet is that God wanted me to be free for this opportunity. I believe that He can and does perform miracles EVERYDAY and that if its HIS will for me to go, He will provide a way.
So, If any of you feel led to assist in financing this trip, that would be AWESOMESAUCE! If you feel led to pray Gods will over me and the other folks considering this trip, that would be AWESOMESAUCE!
