Every morning since my birthday I have woken up wondering if the day before was a complete dream. I’d have to sit there for at least 5-10 minutes to process all the overwhelming blessings God has brought my way. After I put my birthday post up informing everyone about my trip to Africa, within 24 hours people had already donated close to $1000! Sitting at my computer looking at the amounts people were donating into my PayPal account brought me to tears. I still can’t even believe how REAL this all is, and I can’t even process how generous YOU ALL have been. Some of you have brought me to complete tears by the insane amounts of money you have donated toward my trip. My heart is completely overwhelmed by how GOOD GOD IS. Everyone who has donated simply wants to see God’s work be done, and that my friends…is beautiful. I don’t even know how to begin to thank everyone for their love and support…
I told you guys that I would keep all of you updated on the progress of raising money for this trip and so this is the first update! You are never going to believe this….
After not even ONE WEEK since my birthday blog post, people have donated a total of $2,077.43!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my goodness, even typing that amount out has my hands shaking. Every single one of you who have donated…THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
If you are interested in helping make this trip a reality, you can make a check out to me or to The Christian and Missionary Alliance/Envision Office and designate my name either on the check or on a note enclosed with the check, or PAYPAL (send money to email@example.com), or you can send cash. Please send all mail to: P.O. Box 31745 Seattle, WA 98103
I have a lot of other fun birthday surprises to share on the blog this week so be sure to visit again! Until then, I love you all more than you will ever know. Thank you so much for loving me and supporting me through this crazy thing we call life. : )
This is a card my beautiful friend Nichole hand-made for me. The card alone makes me smile. It’s perfect.
