Dandy Lion Submission to Threadless
Kevin and I are in the process of raising money for a mission trip to Cape Town, South Africa. We along with our team of 9 others are leaving in May for Cape Town, going to disciple to those in the poorest of poor villages surrounding the city. We're teaming up with an established and long-term group called All Nations, and together will help train new leaders from those village communities in how to start home churches. I'm going with the confidence in seeing God work in crazy, miraculous ways. I'm expecting to see amazing healing that can only be attributed to God's amazing power. I'm expecting to witness people desperate for jobs find work. I'm expecting the Holy Spirit's movement all over that city.
So this design along with another from Kevin have helped us gain attention for this trip. We held one fundraising event last Saturday called Art for Africa. We held a silent auction, selling walls full of original art and tables full of hand printed tote bags and cards and earrings and all sorts of stuff. The bake sale was busy all night along with the latte bar. I wasn't surprised. Kevin makes the best lattes in the world. If you haven't had one, you need to come over and have him whip up one just for you.
I'll update you on more fundraising events that are going to be happening soon. But in the mean time, you can always vote for my Threadless submission. Prize money from that would most definitely fund our tickets!
