“The LORD’S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. ‘The LORD is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘Therefore I have hope in Him.'” (Lam 3:23)
This past year of fundraising has been such a blessing and such a challenge! We have met so many amazing people, for which we are grateful, and God has paved the way with His faithfulness…every step of the way. We are so amazed at His leading and provision. Thank you to all of you for your role as our partners!
We were commissioned at Park Street Church last Sunday! Receiving the church’s blessing has been very important to us, and we are grateful for their spiritual covering and prayers. Now our departure seems more real. September 7 is just around the corner!
Here on the home front things are a bit crazy! Alberto and various faithful friends painted the outside of the house, replaced a fence, rebuilt the front steps and are currently painting the interior of the house. It all looks great!
Please pray that we find renters this week! Our house is ready to rent, so please spread the word. Praise God we sold both vehicles! Most of our furniture has found new homes, but we still have some bookcases and a dining room table, in case you are interested.
We have raised 87% of our ongoing expenses and 100% of one-time gifts! Thank you faithful people! All money raised from here on out will go towards our ongoing support. We are almost there!
Tomorrow our friends at Allure Spa in Quincy are doing a fundraiser for us. All proceeds from haircuts and facials will benefit our South Africa account! I have been so impressed with peoples’ creativity in helping us get to South Africa! Thank you!
Sept 5 is our good-bye party at 296 Forest St, South Weymouth, MA 02190. All are welcome!
Sept 7 is our departure date! Come say good-bye in the Terrace Room of Park Street Church between the morning services at 10:00.
We are looking for someone with a van to drive us to the airport that night.
