Here it is folks…
I have been struggling lately with the over use of electronics in our house, and I myself am guilty of over use. It seems that even the two year old is engrossed with the ipad. One can say that it is “ok” because she is learning her numbers and colors and letters….. but when a tantrum is what follows the removal of the device, then there is a problem. I have been praying for guidance on how to handle the over use, and the addiction that is in our house hold. While I sit on one of the said devices to talk to you, ironic. Please pray for us as we move forward, and deal with this in the very near future, as there may be some testy teens.
But…. (there is always a but, right?) I have to be thankful to God for giving us the technology and the devices and the abilities that come along with them. It is because of the Internet, and the devices used to access the internet that we have been able to communicate with so many people about our Foundation. When we need prayer, we can get it immediately and from hundreds of people. When we are telling you our story, and the story of others in Haiti, we can do it so that it is very cost effective and time efficient. I have been able to present another fundraising opportunity with the click of a few keys and a “publish” button.
We are planning two more mission trips for 2014 to Haiti, one is coming up VERY quickly in August, and another in December. I have several teens that are wanting to spread the word of God and do the Lords work on one or both of these trips. Many have sent out letters asking for prayer and financial support. I have set up another on line fundraiser, through I Love Coffee. Any thing that is raised through this fundraiser will be evenly distributed evenly between our very ambitious teens that are working so hard towards their individual goals of $1500.00 for a missions trip.
If you love coffee like I do, this is a GREAT opportunity to stock up, or even buy it and freeze it for Christmas gifts! Please visit https://justlovecoffee.com/710foundation
If you are not a coffee drinker, and would like to support these teens in their goals, you can also visit www.710foundation.org and make a donation through Paypal. Please note that this is for missions trips, so that we know where your donation should go. And again, if you are not able to gift anything financially, please remember that prayer is always welcome, and a VERY needed form of support. Prayer is what helps make our trips successful.
Thank you for all of your love and support.
