Will you be our Valentine?
February is a huge month for us. We are hoping to be able to ship our container to Sierra Leone by the 28th. This is where we are praying that you will help. With our tax return and what we have saved, we will likely have half of the cost made up. We are putting out a challenge for finical help to all of our current donors and to everyone who has yet to donate. We are asking each of you to pray for us and to pray about giving a one time gift or partnering with us monthly. We have watched God do completely insane things in the past and we are going to watch Him work through this too. We will be sending letters out to several families that we think would support us if we just asked them. We will also be contacting several churches to ask them to help as well.
If you are reading this and you feel something stirring inside, please pray about donating. God works through people like you to help people like us and together we can literally change the world, one person at a time.
So here is the financial breakdown:
Cost of shipping our container- $14,000 (I really think we will have about half that.)
Cost to make up- $7000
Amount needed per day over 28 days: $250
Once we ship the container, we will leave 3 months after the shipping date. It takes a minimum of 6 weeks for our container to reach Africa and we want to make sure that our belongings get there and can be delivered before we arrive. All that being said, our prayer is to arrive in Sierra Leone in May.
God is very good to us and we have faith that He will use you to allow us to get to Africa to start our ministry there. If you have any questions about what we will be doing there or about other ways you could help; please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as we possibly can.
Thank you all so much for your time reading this and for loving our family.
God bless you and yours,
