Good Afternoon from Sunny NY!
I just wanted to update you on what has been happening with the Ministry lately!
I am excited to report that we have submitted our corporation request to the State and are hoping to start operating as Project Hope for the Children soon! We will have a very busy Summer as we do the necessary things to get us up and running while fundraising and speaking for this year's trip. And speaking of trips, I am excited to say that I will be returning in August for two weeks!
Along with that announcement come a couple of prayer requests. First, the ticket prices are astronomical! Double and Triple what I have ever seen! I am looking at between $1600- $1800 round trip- and that does not cover all the transportation expenses involved! Please pray that I can find a good itinerary for a reasonable price!
This year I believe I will be flying solo. This has not happened in over 5 years and I know I will miss my babies dearly( and enjoy some refreshment alone). Please pray for Jack, Katie, Andrew and Babysitter Brittany while I am gone!
And lastly, please pray for the funding to all come in! We have had some requests for more supplies and are venturing into another hospital. This Spring is an experiment to see how it goes but by Fall we well might be supporting another baby ward. Last year we also contributed to two excellent ministries run by friends that are doing fantastic work in the town of Tinca and I would love to bless them again this year if possible! We need to raise about $10,000 in the next few months to cover the budget for the entire year!
If you have never, ever given to PHFTC before and think that this is a great ministry, please consider giving this month! I cannot imagine how much would come in if everyone who has never given would donate just $10 to PHFTC! We could come close to covering the budget needs and could aid so many people! I love our faithful givers and am so encouraged by them, but I know there are so many of you who support this Ministry and would like to take the next step by giving a gift of $10 or more. Please consider!
