Africa, here we come!!

30 Oct

So its official.  Andrew and I signed our committment letters.  At this point, if we don’t raise the money by November 30th, two things happen: we don’t go and the money we DID raise goes toward the “team.”  Then its up to us to either say “sorry” or pay people back out of our own money.  So… here comes the request:  Please help send us to Africa!!

The first ever Sandals Worldwide East Africa Team consists of Me, Andrew, and Dawn Carter.  The three of us will be traveling to meet up with a family from our church (if you know who they are, please do not respond with names) who moved about a year ago.  Studies show that reality of moving to another country really starts to sink in at about he 1 year mark as people realize that ‘this really is home.’  It is at this time that a lot of people lose heart and return to their original home.  We want this family to feel empowered to do the work they feel God has called them to.  We are going to encourage, refresh, and basically do whatever we can for this family for a week and a half.

If you can’t go to Africa and want to help those who can, would you please consider supporting us?  We need to raise almost $4,000 each.  (Thats 8k for the mathematically challenged)  We are making our own financial sacrifices, but this is obviously a lot of money and we can’t do it alone.  I
