March 1st Update: We're selling some SUPER cute tees/tanks as a fundraiser. In our first two hours live, we made it almost half way to our goal of 50 shirts! If you'd like one, you can purchase here (https://www.bonfire.com/help-lydia-noah-serve-the-kids-of-s-africa/) by March 15th.
February 17th Update: $260 later, Noah and I have applied for our (VERY FIRST) passports! It was our first big step toward our South African missions trip.
If you know Noah (my eleven-year-old son) at all, you probably know that he's a BIG saver. He understands the value of a dollar and is thoughtful about how he spends it. When he heard the amount needed for this trip, he changed his mind about going. If I'm being honest, BOTH Noah and I are still terrified of the financial commitment of an overseas missions trip. Each time I've expressed concern to a friend, they reiterate the same thing... FAITH. So, we're taking a big leap of faith and trusting that it will all fall into place. And so far, we haven't been disappointed.
I know we're both going to learn a lot on this missions trip, but even the fundraising process has already lead to so much growth for both of us. We have been touched by and are so thankful for the donations so far.
Check out the Facebook Live video below to see my mom brain hit level 100, see the family circus unfold around me (all three kids popped in on the live video!), find out what we'll be doing in South Africa, and learn how you can help.
Donate $10 or more and be entered into a drawing to win a seat at my in-person or online beginner photography class!
BIG SCARY GOAL: We have a deposit of $2,400 due by April 8th and would SO appreciate your support. I have a beginner's photography class in the works (online or in-person), which I'll be using as a fundraiser, as well.
