For the last few months, I've been having at least one dream a week of me visiting Abu. They haven't been real realistic dreams, because, well...they're dreams. For example, one was set in New York, one was us playing a concert in the Sydney Opera House, haha. However, in each dream, Abu was clear and I know I was so happy to see him and hug him in each of my dreams.
I've been praying about getting to visit him and I feel like it's time to get the process started.
It's terrifying and exciting all at the same time!
Now, here's the hard part. I already ask you for a lot. I ask you to sponsor children, I ask you donate your money to good causes, and I ask you pray for your soul, on occasion.
This time, I ask you for another thing.
To go on this trip, I will need funds. Funds that I just don't have on my own. Teaching preschool in a daycare center doesn't exactly pay the big bucks.
But, God has put this on my heart and I know that he will provide everything I need to go to Sierra Leone.
To start, I'm going to fundraise through my blog. I have added a "Chip-In" widget to the sidebar of this blog. You can find it right under the pictures of my sponsored children. Clicking on the Chip-In button will take you to the donation page. There, you can donate money through PayPal. Using PayPal, you can trust that all of your money will be transferred safetly and securely. Nothing will go to a 3rd party, at all.
If you choose to donate money, please use the "Gift" option to donate, then no fees are taken out.
Also, if you choose to donate money for my trip, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. You're a wonderful person!
And now, for a little inspiration for both us. This is what I want to see:
