I will continue with fundraising activities such as craft tables, etc., but I have started the last phase of fundraising for our January 2013 mission trip to "my" orphanage through soliciting financial contributions from family, friends, and interested parties. The mailing list was very hard to come up with, as it is SO NOT my thing to ask for money, although in the "mission" world, it is supposedly a "normal" practice. So, letters went out last week and I am praying for a good response! Awaiting the arrival of our passports now, and hopefully I will be able to secure airline tickets once they arrive. I cannot thank everyone enough for all of their support- both the big gestures as well as the little ones!
