It has been a busy month since I last wrote. It’s not that there haven’t been things to write about, there just hasn’t been time to write them! A few weeks ago, I arrived in the U.S. and it feels like I have been running since I got here. I came to America to visit family and friends, but I have also been doing a bunch of things for our mission. I have been busy with meetings and setting up several fundraisers. Last Saturday was our first official H&FM fundraiser. It was a large yard sale and vendor sale.
After weeks of collecting items, setting up vendors, and praying for nice weather, the sale finally came together! It was a PERFECT day for a sale, and the generosity of friends and church family made the sale a real success.
We were hoping to raise $500 with the sale, and we ended up making about $750! God really blessed this fundraiser more than we could have even imagined. We are so thankful that we were able to spread the news of our mission with the community, as we raised money for those in need in our community in El Salvador!
