Edited 5 pm Sunday, June 22nd to add: I just spoke with the finance dept at TMI and they gave me the current total, which was $350-ish more than I thought we had! So we’re within just over a couple hundred dollars now. I am amazed, amazed, amazed at God. Isn’t it awesome?
Well, if you were hanging around here watching on Friday, you saw that God sent us $3260 between 5pm Thursday and midnight Friday! AMAZING! We were just thrilled to watch it, and I know it was a major lesson for us *and* for my dear son. We just spent the day packing and praying. How exciting!
We drove to Teen Missions Boot Camp at 6 am on Saturday morning, and got him all set up there! As you can see we still need another $615 as of today (Sunday the 22nd) at 2 pm, but we’re trusting that it will come. Teen Missions let him go ahead and be there since we were so close and they know it’s on the way. So, if anyone wants to donate, there’s still a few more days to do so! Here’s the link once again where you can donate–every little bit helps! Don’t forget to put his name, Bo Krasawski, in the "comments" box.
And here’s that little ticker guy, running toward the prize! He’s awfully close!
We were thrilled to find out that his team is being lead by Dave and Vanja Cochrane, the wonderful staff of Teen Missions who actually *live* in Brazil and come back to the US to lead teams back to there and also Australia sometimes. Everyone on campus raves about them. His team is small this year–only 10 kids; 5 boys and 5 girls. They also have three assistant leaders!!! They all seem to have sweet spirits and I really think this is going to be a wonderful year for Bo; I think God’s really calling him to be a leader this year and help set the temperature, so to speak, for what’s going to happen. It’s funny, because my dear hubby wrote him a card on Friday night and snuck it into his luggage (isn’t that sweet???) and I asked him about it, and he said that’s what it was all about–he found this card at the store randomly (yeah right)–it was an aerial shot of the rainforest and was all about being a leader and really giving life all you’ve got, and he encouraged Bo to do exactly that. Sweet! I can’t wait to share the stories.
And just in case you can’t get enough of links, LOL, here’s one to teen missions’ website–you can watch the evening rallies LIVE, every night at 7:15 EST!
Again, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for every dollar donated. I’m praying fervently that every dollar given comes back to the giver a hundredfold, so be watching out for surprises!
