Bring the Ruhasha Family to Safety

Campaign Created by: Ruth Darling

Goal : USD $11,000
Raised : USD $ 9,350

This is a time unlike no other.  Everyone around the world and people close to us are impacted some how if not directly from the Covid-19 virus.  The Ruhasha family is no different, as missionaries trying to get to their home country quickly they need our support to get to safety through your prayers and giving.

Jerianne has been one of my closest and dearest friend for over the last 20 years.  She is a missionary in Tanzania with her husband and 4 year old son for the past 8 years.   They have been warned with many other missionarys to leave the country.  Her and her family are in danger not only from the virus, and limited health care but also from the fear and anxiety of the nationals putting her and other missionaries in serious danger.  

Travel to the states is extremely expensive with tickets likely to cost them anywhere from $4000 to $8000 USD per person for a one way ticket which does not include any other travel expenses.  Their goal is to make it to the states together as a family.  The Lord has been gracious to them and has provided her husband with a visa earlier today .  Allowing them to travel together as a family but lacking the funding to do so.

Please join me in lifting up this family along with other missionaries across the world in prayer.  Please pray for: Health of her 4 year old son with respiratory issues, comfort, pertection against the virus, safety in travels, provisions for their needs, access into the US, and funding.

Please share and cover them with prayer and support trusting that the Lord is soverin in everything!  All of your donations will be used towards all of their plane tickets and other travel expenses since the trip will span over a few days.  Thank you!!

Hello friends! This is Jerianne. I want to begin with a heartfelt thank you to each one of you who prayed, encouraged, and gave sacrificially. I know every single one of us has experienced so much upheaval in our lives recently. In the midst of a worldwide pandemic, each of you still found space in your hearts, minds, and finances to support us through our transition. We LOVE being able to grow the kingdom of God alongside our partners who donate and pray regularly, but this was especially heartwarming for us as we witnessed you choose to give directly to our personal needs at this time. A million thank you’s would not suffice but alas, that is all we can do thus far. So we THANK YOU!

Over the past few days I’ve been in contact with GiveSendGo and they’ve informed me that there was a glitch in the campaign and all the donations were refunded. Your refunded money may have shown up in your account on or around April 2. GiveSendGo has worked with me to give donors a chance to joyfully and sacrificially give again. When you have a moment, please double check that your initial donation was refunded then consider giving again. Also, you will notice that I added a mailing address request. That is for my personal use so that we may mail you a hand written thank you card the good old fashioned way. I wish I could send an enormous hug and teary, gratitude filled eyes with it. You’ll just have to imagine that detail as you open the card.

We love you my friends and we feel ESPECIALLY LOVED BY YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
