Fundraising for my Medical Mission Trip

This is what I want to witness! This is my prayers. 

I started working on ways to raise the funds to go on the Medical Mission trip in February.  I decided I would start with selling homemade Jams.  I set up a facebook page to get the word out. If you would like to buy some head on over there and let me know.  I have two flavors right now Cherry Chipotle and Carmel Apple Mayhem (this one is a favorite).  I can ship them to you if you would like. 

I also set up a Go Fund Me page that allows people to donate to my mission work either publicly or privately. I added a widget to the right here and you can see my progress as time goes by.  If you would like to donate you can go to the site by clicking the donate now button or here.  Any amount will help and would be greatly appreciated.

10,000 Reasons

There is a song that plays on klove and I have it stuck in my head.  I love this song. I went so far and downloaded the sheet music so that I can play it on my flute.  I wanted to share it with you.

The chorus goes like this:
Bless the lord oh my soul
Oh my soul
Worship his holy name
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I worship you holy name

Here is the video for the song.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. 

Sorry I couldn't embed it. (I came back in and edited it.)  I am blogging from my phone.

Mission Trip??

I have this awesome opportunity to go on a medical mission trip to India!

I feel that I was called into doing medical missions over a year ago, then my husband got sick and I put it on hold.  With that, at church on Sunday, they announced that one of the guys that loves India and has been 4 times already is heading up a Medical Mission.  I was sitting there listening and was like yes THANK YOU LORD!  I have been waiting for this.  I wanted to go but didn't want to go alone.  This is that opportunity to serve the Lord in the way that I know I am meant to do.  But there is a catch! Always a catch right because things can't always be easy...

I have to raise $2800 and most of it by October.  I don't know even where to start to raise that kind of money.  We don't just have that sitting in the bank waiting for me to pay for a mission trip.  How do I do it?

Right now all I am going to do is ask for prayers.  Prayers that this is what God is leading me to do. Prayers that I can raise the money to go and prayers that it shows my family that this is the right thing to do.

Jeremiah 29:11-14 "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.  I will be found by you," says the Lord.
