One week ago today Corey and I had a discussion. It was a “Let’s get practical” discussion. The reality was we needed $2000 in 7 days for us to go to the Dominican. Between the hope of a scholarship from the church and a bit from our savings account, at MOST one of us might be able to go. As I am the coordinator for our church’s mission trips, we decided I would go.
But the thing is that when God spoke to us about going He called us AS A FAMILY to go on this trip. I was literally sick to my stomach thinking that Zeke’s first mission trip would only be with one parent. That just wasn’t okay with me. I hated that we had to settle for that.
From years of living off support we knew that we had a role to play. So with honestly very little hope….. I mean seriously: $2000 IN ONE WEEK…. we decided to make a few phone calls and put something out on Facebook…. I thought maybe a few hundred would come….
All done. Not a dime from our (very depleted) savings account. 100% of the funds in cash, checks, and pledges that are on the way. Today, including the amounts that are confirmed in the mail… our balance owed for the trip is…..
We did it!…… no…. YOU did it…….. actually……
