My friend Bonnie is trying to raise money for a missions trip to Uganda. She is about 2/3 of the way there financially. I remember how much it meant to me to have my care group bolster my coffers with a huge yard sale back in 2007 when Sarah and I needed money to go with GAIN to Russia .We raised close to $900 at that sale. Crazy good!
With that in mind, I am holding a yard sale this Saturday and trying to rally my new care group on Bonnie's behalf. (This is not the same bunch of folks; things get switched up at our church from time to time.)
I am also taking this short break at the computer to let you know in case you're not on Facebook to please:
-pray that donations and sales would be a loaves-and-fishes testimony since I'm not on a busy street in my community. Customers have not typically driven down in droves.
-pray that the forecast of "75 degrees and sunny" holds!
-shop if you're local (donations are tax deductible and payable to Covenant Mercies and given to Bonnie)
-make baked goods to sell (crumb cake, sliced and ready to go, sold very well; cookies or finger foods to eat with coffee or lemonade)
- sit with us an hour or so, and/or help us at the end haul the leftovers to Goodwill
-forget the middleman and write out a check to Covenant Mercies and send it my way. I 'll pass it on to Bonnie for ya.
Thanks! Now back to the hunting and gathering and cleaning.
