We have made lots of progress from where we were 10 days ago.
10 days ago i received an email from Shaun King asking me "Can you go?" So on a whim i filled out an application, expecting to be denied, and went on with my daily routine.
9 days ago i received an emailed saying my application was accepted and i needed $500 for the cost of the trip with $100 as a deposit due on the 4th of July.
8 days ago, by Gods grace and the help of friends and family, i was able to pay that deposit.
in the days that have followed, God has provided an additional $300.
So, maybe its better said GOD has made progress.
There are so many friends and family members that have been so generous with their support, both in prayer and with finances. Thank You, ALL!
We are almost there. The deadline for paying for the trip is July 17th.
9 DAYS FROM TODAY!
The other BIG need is the funding for travel to and from Atlanta, the various immunizations and meds that are needed to go with, many supplies that are specific to the trip and so on. I was able to find round trip tickets from CHI to ATL today for $171 plus tax. The issue is that i don't know how long that price is good for.
We would ask that you would join us in prayer for our trip, that you would seek guidance and if you feel lead by the Holy Spirit, you can contribute HERE. You will need my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all in advance for your prayers and consideration.
Peace, love and JOY!
