Trip Update & Fun News

We are SO THANKFUL for the miracle we're watching take place!
Just a few weeks ago we needed $22,500.
As of today, we only need $4,500.

Our deadline was this past Monday, so we're praying and working with everything in our hands to finish up our fundraising for Swazi & Wales as ground costs are beginning to be paid out.
Thank you so much to those of you who are part of the GO!
As each one does the part God puts on their heart to do, the whole is accomplished.
And that's what we're seeing happen.

Thank you.

If you haven't had a chance to be a part of the GO yet, we still need you!
Just click the Africa Page link above this post, scroll down and you will find directions on ways to easily give and be a part.

We're SO EXCITED about some incredible trip updates that have happened in the last few days.
We have two carepoints, Gege & Mankayane, that comprise our Swazi Dream Center.
Usually we split our days between the two.

We JUST found out that when we do our big fun day, the Mankayane kids will be bussed over to Gege and we'll all be TOGETHER!
The fun day is when they have their Christmas meal in June and we get to paint nails, paint faces, play games and have a bouncy house.
Many of these Mankayane kids have never set foot out of their small community or even been in a car before, so what an amazing opportunity to get to ride a BUS to visit other kids!

AND (there's more. i know.) when they're all together for our big fun day we get to give them backpacks full of school supplies and personal care kits that have been put together by the children at our church.

AND, we're going to video our kids packing the bags and show it to our Swazi Dream Center kids, and then video them receiving the bags and show it to our NLC kids when they're together in a few weeks for Base Camp.

God is so amazing with His creativity and giving us the technology to be able to form relationships over thousands of miles between groups of children who would have never been able to connect otherwise.

That word.
THAT is community.
THAT is what we're building. Globally. Where we've been called to.

And this...

Will meet with this...

And become this...

Connection. Community. Relationship.
