DR Fundraising Update!
by Dan Jones, Vanguard
Here’s our fundraising update from Dan, a member of our fundraising committee!
We are quickly coming up on our immersion trip to the Dominican Republic. Everyone is excited and ready to join Students International in their work there. It will be a new experience for the Vanguards – a life-changing trip and I am sure that God will be present.
We have raised roughly $16,000, which was a huge answer to prayer. We are still in need of about $7,000 to have our trip fully funded. To date, all of our support was raised by our support letters, which is a huge testament to our many loving friends and family. Once we return, we plan on hosting a few community events to try and reach our goal. This brings me to a good point – we’re still accepting donations! If you feel led, you can send a check to HoneyRock (8660 Honey Rock Road, Three Lakes, WI 54562). Make sure you put “DR trip” in the Memo Line!
As our trip is next week, we are in still in need for prayer on many fronts. Prayer for safety, open minds, a learning attitude and a humble heart are all on the list – that we don’t try and fix problems that we think the locals need help with. This will distract from our purpose of going which is to work alongside the long term missionaries that are working on site and aid them in their work.
Please continue to pray with us! Thanks,
