I was so shocked that despite not having a ton of people in attendance, we walked away from that birthday fundraiser event with $1200 in donations toward our travel costs. Within a few days following, more donations were made by people that weren't able to make it that day for various reasons, which doubled our original amount. So within a week, God blessed our family through the giving of our family and friends, with $2400 toward our travel to Uganda.
Currently we are only $3,800 away from our goal of raising enough money for our flights and the 4 week+ (estimated) stay in Uganda that we currently await the dates of! We stand in awe of how God continues to provide for us and how creative and loving He is in how it has been done.
