One of my mission mates, Ashley, has been on numerous trips to Haiti through Red Rocks Church. She sent me slideshows from both her 2009 and 2010 trips. Her pictures were amazing and only intensified all of my feelings towards this trip. Her pictures show something that most of us can only imagine and to know that I will be THERE, taking similar pictures myself, in a month can be somewhat of an overwhelming thought. Luckily, I have so much to do, I don't have time to think about it!
We are starting to narrow down our supply list for the clinics we are visiting. Zander's second grade class has taken up a collection for children's flip flops, soccer balls, colors and coloring books. It's really exciting to see him get the "mission bug" and inspire his classmates to donate to the cause.
We have decided to ask for help collecting over the counter medications, such as Aspirin, Ibuprofin. We are also hoping to get some antibacterial ointment, fun bandaids, rubbing alcohol, peroxide, oral care stuff and q-tips...just for starters.
My fundraising is going well and I cannot even begin to express my appreciation!
I still have seats on my casino bus for Sept 18th. If you mention, this blog, I'll drop your ticket price to $15!!!! So grab your friend, your gaming card, and your lucky rabbit's foot and come along!
Thanks for reading!
