Almost time...

...for the concert fundraiser to start tonight!!!

So I had told you about the event we were having to raise money for my trip to China this summer... and it's tonight!!

God's been doing some crazy, awesome stuff lately! It would take too long to go in detail, but stuff like a friend redirecting all of her graduation gift money to me for my trip... another friend saying they will match dollar-for-dollar everything that is raised tonight... God providing the $500, what I have to give to Bring Me Hope for staying at the camp, by the concert tonight, just like I prayed He would!! The local radio station even called to do an interview about the concert tonight! This has been even better than I imagine. I am overwhelmed and humbled by the generosity of God's people and how He can touch hearts!

It's been an incredible, faith-building last couple weeks... and I know it will only get better! It is so obvious that I am headed the right direction by going to China this summer. Everytime I turn around, God has another confirmation right there! I have been praying that God will provide the entire amount of money needed for my trip -- before I leave! I know that He is so able to do that and I can't wait to see what other doors He will open! There's only $2000 left to go!!!

Please pray that the Holy Spirit will be with us tonight... I don't want to attempt this in my own strength. Pray that people can see the huge need there is to minister to the orphans. Pray that God will touch hearts with the message that we can be the avenue to get Christ's hope to the orphans! Most of all, pray that Jesus Christ is lifted up. I don't want the people to see any of us... just HIM and all that He can accomplish!

Thanks for standing behind me... it's so encouraging! Love ya guys!
