Have Flip Flops, Will Travel

Last weekends basement sale was a huge success.  We raised almost $400.  Thank you to all of our sweet friends and family who stopped by and bought lemonade, cupcakes, jewelry and artwork created all by the kids.  The money raised will help buy the backpacks we need for about 100 kids.  We will also use some of the money to help buy snacks for the kids when we show them the "Jesus Movie".  Some of these children have probably never seen a movie and a movie that could forever change their lives, is even better.  Would you please be praying for the hearts of these sweet kids that need to hear that there is a God who loves them deeply?

We have been overwhelmed by the donations coming in.  To date, we have collected 132 pairs of flip flops, 107 boxes of crayons and we are now moving on to collecting childrens sunglasses.  We are in need of 100 pairs of sunglasses to put in each of the backpacks.  If you'd like to donate, please let me know. 

We are getting excited, but there is still so much to be done.  The girls have been at camp all week from 9-3 so I've tried to use that time wisely to prepare for our trip.

Is anyone else going on a mission trip this summer?  If so, I'd love to hear about it.
