2. Garage Sale Fundraiser
Many thanks to Michael’s parents for hosting (and providing many of the wares) for the garage sale that went down this past Saturday. Though we worked ourselves to the bone, we managed to raise about 17-18% of our total funding!
We’d also like to thank many of the people who generously gave more than the cost of items and a few who gave donations without purchasing anything. Last, but not least, thanks to a couple of our friends who gave us items to sell.
This is an effort far larger than we are. So thank you to everyone involved; it means so much to us.
3. Speaking Gig @ Pressly Memorial ARP
We were invited to speak at Pressly Memorial ARP in Statesville NC this past Sunday. It was a great time of confirming our calling – it’s surprising what having to audibly explain things, when you have to tell others about it, does for your own sense of purpose and desire. We made our presentation during the Sunday School hour (10:00 – 10:30) about our calling, our vision trip, and our vision for the ministry in Oviedo.
All in all, it was a wonderful time of being encouraged by some great saints. It is a humbling experience to present what you believe God is calling you to do and ask people to pray for you and partner with you. Some great advice (among many encouraging words!) we heard there was a reminder that this is God’s church – not ours. It isn’t about us, nor is it dependent upon us; it depends on the risen savior Jesus Christ, who died and rose for his church, and the gates of Hades will never overtake it.
A big thank you to everyone!
