Tacos and Thanksgiving


Bridge Church, I’m pleased to announce that I have raised more than enough of the funding I need to go to Mexico. The taco fundraiser was awesome because we made $426 in cash donations and it was also fun to celebrate the Mexican culture and talk more about what it is I would be doing while I’m living in Mexico City. There were also some larger donations that really pushed the funds closer to what I needed. Not only that, but a group of people signed up to pledge monthly donations towards the cause. All together including all the different ways people gave and the donations that were received from this community, the Bridge Church gave $9116. That is about two thirds of the money I needed.

Along with the help of my parents and other members of my family plus friends outside of the church, I can confidently say that I have more than enough! God has blessed me greatly and it has been incredible to watch. Even when I think I’ve been blessed enough God continues to give me more. My first plane ticket has already been purchased and my parents are helping me to prepare and are making sure I have everything I need for the trip. Everyone in my life has been extremely helpful in a multitude of different ways. It’s times like this that I am really thankful to be a part of such a loving and God-fearing community.

It’s crazy to think that just a few months ago we were thinking that I would only be able to go for maybe three months because that’s the most we could afford. But I really felt that God was calling me to stay the full school year because I think that would really make the most sense and also be the most helpful to the people I’m serving in Mexico. I was thinking so small back then. But I prayed to God that if this was His will for me, that He would call my neighbours to be generous in helping me. He blessed me with a job and babysitting and also generous neighbours and friends and family too. God has provided for me in so many different ways. I believe that the people who give to me are just as much a part of the mission in Mexico as the people who are going to serve there. I wanted to go but I needed the funds. Other people may not have been able to go but could give money towards the cause. I’m so thankful for all the people who God has called to be a part of this mission. May are work be fruitful in Mexico City and may God accomplish His plans for us and those we serve.

Thanks again for partnering with me in following the vision God has given!
