I will have to say - I have a weakness for cupcakes. I get really excited by cupcakes. They are just the perfect size to satisfy my sweet tooth. Yummy moist cake and creamy sweet frosting - my favorite combination. You can get all different flavors of cake. They come beautifully decorated with doo-dads and sprinkles. Some plain some fancy - I don't care - as long as they taste sinfully sweet.
Lately our fund raising efforts have been a lot like the long anticipated dessert. We are working hard and despite rain and other challenges - the Lord continues to add doo dads and sprinkles to our "cupcake". I have so blessed by people who have helped Trenton and I - whether it be with a small sprinkles or a whole cupcake.
I don't get to eat cupcakes very often - perhaps that is why I enjoy them so much when I do. Kinda like fund raising. You write letter after letter, post on Facebook and then post again - only to get nothing. Then when you do get a response the rewards are so great! I get so excited over $5! It may not be huge but it is the thought behind it. The mere fact that someone cares enough about MY dream - to help me achieve my goal.
Trenton and I are taking a whole crew of loving and caring people with us when we go to Rwanda. Without the love, support and prayers from so many - people we love and care for to people we have never even met - our trip would not be possible.
God has a purpose for all of us. I was created to Love Him and share His love with others. I am so excited to shine in Africa. I again thank you - all of you - whether you can help us with our funds or by prayer - you mean so much to us.
Most of all - I owe my thanks to God for pouring his abundant blessings down on us.
