Women and Children in Crisis update

It has been quite some time since I last posted about my WCIC class.  We have read many books, listened to many speakers, watched many videos and have become a family.  I am enjoying getting to know my classmates, the staff and most importantly the heart of Jesus. 

There has been a great deal of fundraising going over the past couple of month, four of the ladies have spent a many hours together sewing up a storm for a bazzar that was held last weekend at church.  A house has been painted, a couple of yardsales have been done and coffee is sold on Sundays during service.  The mission trip had been planned for the end of December or early January but plans have changed due to lack of funds.  It is a really hard time right now to fundraise and the group has hit a snag or maybe we were pushing something that wasn't in the Lords timimg.  His timing is so much more important than ours, he knows so much that we can only begin to imagine.  When it is his time he will tell them to order those tickets, pack their bags and hang onto their hearts. 

If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to the mission team please let me know.  They appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers as they continue on the journey.  Although the trip has been delayed the preparation has not been.  As Alice or maybe it was Bill said, "petal to the metal" on the fundraising.  No time to take a break, we have to keep pushing ahead.

Blessings to all!
