i-tech THANKS TO ALL who came, gave, and helped in any way. Special thanks to Pat Gaddis, owner/operator of Fair Meadow Bakes, and to Cheryl Hawley and Janna Syester, EOC Ministry Team Leaders, who organized the event and did most of the work! And "LOOK AT GOD!" a $250 donation was given after I spoke at a church this month! We have the money to buy the I-See kit!
Container to Romania The winter-wear items, personal care products, wheelchairs, gifts, etc., that have been donated over the last year (and stored for free at Evangel Worship Center Mission Warehouse) are on their way to Romania! HUGE thanks to all the individuals, churches and organizations who made this possible.
When I was in Romania in August, Nurse Crini said they have a critical need for wheelchairs because last winter was so brutal and many of the elderly and frail they have rescued had to have one or more legs amputated due to extreme frostbite. How grateful we are to Advanced Home Care, who through the encouragement of employee and EOC supporter, Janna Syester, donated seven wheelchairs and as well as money towards the cost of shipping.
Tinca “Glory Wing” Thanks to the amazing “$10,000 in 2 Weeks Challenge" last August, the structure is built, and ten more elderly will be rescued off the streets and given a home. Due to fluctuating costs, an additional $2200 was needed to complete heating & plumbing but "LOOK AT GOD!" a couple who heard me speak earlier this month gave $1000! Who will match their gift?
Jewelry By Gail: Kim’s Support Fundraiser Friend Gail (and supporter of me and EOC in a variety of ways) has donated her beautiful handmade jewelry for me to sell to help with my personal funding as an advocate for Elder Orphan Care. She donated a variety of earrings and necklaces that are just gorgeous. If you'd like a private viewing, let me know!
Thank you, Gail!
Thirty-One EOC Fundraiser
- I will be flying to Indianapolis for the International Conference on Missions next month. I'm especially excited because I didn’t get to attend last year’s ICOM due to my run in with a deer and a semitrailer! GRATEFUL to be alive and make plans to participate this year. If you happen to be going, please stop by the RTC/EOC booth!
- My accountability/ministry friends are praying about the funding needed so I can continue to devote my energies to the service God has called me to in Elder Orphan Care. We are so grateful for the churches and individuals who cheerfully "invest" each month and we are praying that others will feel led to join them!
- I have the privilege of returning to Romania November 30 - December 15. Please pray for me, Andy, Rob and the team members who will be making this trip. May we serve God well and shine brightly for Jesus!
- EOC Team Trip to Romania: April 4 - 13, 2013! Due to the training needed to participate on this trip, team members must live in the Concord, NC, area. Contact me if you are interested!
Well, after all that, what's left to say but, "LOOK AT GOD!"
