Cards for Missions Update

Hi Stamping Friends!

Way back in September I told you about a mission trip to the Dominican Republic I felt called to go on with a team of women from Students International.  Well it's been awhile since I posted about it.  I've been struggling with how to find support to go on this venture.  The cost is $1700.  And I don't have an extra $17 let alone $1700!  One of the biggest obstacles I've had to overcome (so far!) is my pride.  God has really been chipping away at me on this one.  I didn't realize how hard it would be to ask other people for money!  I finally sent out my letter (of course I made a card!) requesting support.  I sent out 150 cards to family, friends, and fellow church members.  Here is the card that I sent:

Inside I asked for prayer support and monetary support.  I also included an order form for various card packs: birthday, friend, scripture, etc.  I'm selling the packs of 5 cards for $15.  I've already had three people place orders!  And Scott's great uncle already sent a check.  I'm so overwhelmed by God's goodness and provision. 

Many people have been asking how they can see the card packs that I have for sale.  So this post will be dedicated to those photos.  I have some pictures taken of some of the card packs and will continue to add more.  Thank you all so much for supporting me on this venture.  God is good!

I will continue to add more photos as time permits.  Thank you to everyone who is helping to make this mission trip possible!  I pray that God's glory will shine all the way to the Dominican Republic!

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card. All the best on your missions trip.

I love your card packs. Great idea to reuse the layout. $15 is a superb price! And they look great.

Beautiful! I wish you luck with your fund raising. Wish I had some $$ to send, but no work for over a year makes that impossible. Hugs, Cindy E.
