Praise the Lord! You guys are the best and the Lord continues to reveal his providential care through your donations.
You have responded above and beyond the $500 matched donation challenge a friend of mine offered to sponsor during my last week in the United States. In five days, you all donated or pledged to donate another $1500, which puts me only $3500 away from my partnership goal. Once my friend submits his $500 matching donation, I'll only be $3000 away. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
This entry would be remiss without mentioning the great article written by a graduate school classmate and friend, which helped get the word out about the upcoming mission and bring in the donations, even from college friends that I haven't spoken to in years. I think Carl did a great job capturing my motivation for going and explaining what I've been told I'll be doing over there.

3 days from now, I'll be in plane heading to Fidesco training!
