I am finally home from my first international missions trip! My first days back have been spent adjusting back to EST, including 25 hours of sleep in a 30-hour span of time………… oh my! The transition back has been smooth and even less emotional than I predicted; the reason being unexpected process time. I am still absorbing so much of my incredible experience that words escape me when asked, “How was your trip?” Know that it was beyond what I could have fathomed or asked for and I will share as I am ready – which I hope to be soon.
For now, my mind is busy with preparations for my second trip – I leave in under 12 weeks! (October 8th) I am planning a Bunco night and other social parties, a child care raffle, letters, and more! Ideas and hands-on help are welcome and appreciated.
Online giving looks a little bit different with a site update. Here is the new information:
Give Directly (to someone’s trip):
- First time users click “Create An Account”
- Under “Give” select “One Time Donation”
- Select “Raleigh” as the campus
- Enter amount in “Mission Trip Support”
- Enter traveler’s name and trip name under “Include a message”
Siara Mims, Uganda, October
- Input your card information
Of course, you are welcome to donate other ways – change jars, mailed checks or money orders, cash. You are always encouraged to give as you feel led, but there is never pressure. My support team is a WHOLE lot more than money – I continue to need prayers, encouragement, and others to share my story! I even have cards that you can hand out. 🙂
Thank you, from the top of my heart, for all that you do.
Lots of Love,
