Ministry Update 12-4-14

I hope you are doing well and survived Thanksgiving and all the crazy shopping! This week our family has been busy making preparations for our big trip to the Philippines.

Only 32 days left until we leave on January 4th!

Here is a little news:

Our Visa situation

Our visa applications were returned because we lacked one document and I actually sent them to the wrong consulate. Yeah, leave it to me to mail it to the wrong place huh? At any rate, I overnighted them to the correct place in Washington, DC Monday so please pray that they will be approved and we will receive them quickly.

Christmas for 200 children


Earlier this week we were able to send $1000 to our partners in the Philippines. This money, along with some from another church will provide Christmas gifts and food for around 200 children. Every single one of our donors has a part in this special gift and we couldn’t thank you enough.

It’s great to know that so many children will have a brighter Christmas!


Update on our trip fund raiser- $6,300 already given!


We started out with a goal of raising $25,000 for our Philippines trip. So far we have received around $6,300 which leaves a remaining amount of $18,700.

Our goal is to raise this the the end of December. Since we have already purchased our plane tickets, the remainder of the money will be used there in the new ministry center as we begin to care for the many homeless children and adults.

Please help us reach our goal. You can give on line or mail in your gift. all of the information can be found here.

Plus, this month only we have a special gift to offer everyone who donates $50 or more OR signs up to become a sponsor. These awesome limited edition Unsheltered tee shirts will only be available in December!
