There are still a few major ones, though, that still need to be met...a way TO Atlanta by July 28th. Several neccessary supplies, which i will list below, travel expenses (i.e. gas money for the return trip, food on the return trip, a couple of meals on the way to Haiti, etc.) possible charges for luggage on flight.
I know many of you have been on your knees on my behalf and i THANK YOU!
I know many of you have generously donated to this cause on my behalf, and i THANK YOU!
I ask that you continue to pray for those of us making this trip. that you seek the Holy Spirit's guidance as to what to pray for and that if you feel led to help financially, that you would know you are blessing the folks of Haiti in so very many ways.
that you would know it is not neccessarily only me that you are blessing , but you are loving these folks who have nothing, and you are loving them well. and if your blessing is in prayer, that you are also loving them well. i have a paypal acct set up. you can send contributions care of my email address firstname.lastname@example.org by following this link: SENDMONEY.
