Happy Beautiful Sunday All!
THIS IS OUR 10TH update!!!! :D
We are counting down from day 23...
and thank you to all of those who have been praying,
sending items to the PO Box (see previous updates for the
address) and have given a monetary donation!
I look forward to another productive week. I will be, LORD
Willing, making more connections down towards the border and
have the opportunity to contact at least one mission in Mexico!
Call or text anytime with questions. We still need volunteers to
put the book bags together, etc! Prayers needed and welcomed.
May the LORD Bless and Keep you Always,
THIS PAST WEEK WAS AWESOME!!!
I am very happy we, thus far, will be able to serve 7
children. Even one would be worth it.
Yes, the goal is 6,000 UAC or more! But even so, I am making a personal commitment
to stick with this as a personal goal of helping children for the long haul.
I am praying to continue this particular project, with hope that even seven children, will pass on
their gift by seeing the love they've been shown. May they grow up and continue to help their brothers
and sisters at the border. In time, they can combat the dangers around them and share compassion, not
falling into the temptations around them.
Give if you can
and I welcome you to
Go on this journey with me!

Our goal is to aid at least 6,000 children. This will be a lasting impact on not only
them, but books and clothing may be passed on when the child

PO BOX 1141
SPRINGFIELD IL 62705-1141
Let us not forget those who have been working hard
for years! Praise God...
Please, watch and give. Though this is a separate
mission, we are not separated. :D
Such GREAT and WONDERFUL groups already in place...
If we don't like it, let's do our own thing. If we do, let's support what
has already been in place for YEARS!
FY 18 has appropriated $1.3 billion to help these kids. Let's find a way
to aid even if only a little. see some links below...
A new question: why so much money and what will you do with leftovers?
Really, $100,000 is a drop. It may sound like a lot, however, in a year's time,
there have been roughly 100,000 UAC at the BORDER, alone. That is ONLY
THIS TRIP will be an excellent start! We can cover as many needs as possible
and possibly get a head start with future needs. Books and clothing get left behind.
Persoanal items and food are the only items we cannot turn over. These needs are constant,
as the missions I have contacted at the BORDER are DAILY providing such needs!
Our goal is to make personal connections with these people (the LIGIT groups) and continue a relationship
long after this trip is over. WE CAN REALLY BEGIN TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Please, consider making a matching donation today...
We NEED YOU. :D Thanks so much.
Here's the RUNDOWN
$12+ per child
12+ volunteers, using half their own funds to GO
The $12 would provide personal items for each child
Also, there will be a way to donate books, clothing, etc.
This way, when a child outgrows these items, they can be passed down
or at least get the started.
Also, the personal items cosist of toothebrush, paste, combs/brushes/feminine
hygiene products/soap/shampoos, etc
Each volunteer will be given $250 only. We will cover our own lodgings... based on
like minded missionaries to open their homes, etc. This will be a 5 day trip. We will cover our
own food costs as well. This is no glamorous trip by any means.
We want all of this money to go to the children and the Mommas and older siblings who care for them.
May not one penny go unaccounted for.
If you cannot go, will you consider sending? Share your donation today! Thank you.
We now have at least two reliable sources of contact in TEXAS!!! There is a need for clothing and food. Of course, there is always
a need for toiletries, like personal hygiene products, epecially for women and young girls.
Let us not grow weary in doing good.
Let's do this thing!!!
Can we count on you?
ARE THERE EVEN 7,000 OF YOU OUT THERE TO MATCH MY DONADONATION? ARE THERE TRANSLATORS, PRAYER WARRIORS, THOSE WHO CAN SEND CHILDREN'S BOOKS, PREFERABLY IN SPANISH?
THERE WERE RECENTLY 6,000+ CHILDREN CONSIDERED UAC. THIS MEANS UNACCOMPANIED ALIEN CHILD!
Many have been orphaned, others used for drug and sex trafficking. What a horrendous state their minds are in. Others have diseases or have seen gang violence and have to be separated for the sake of disease control or harm done to them.
Let us bring aid to these young souls. Something of comfort. There are others doing their part in the other side cod the border. Let us do ours.
