And that one phone call where an AMAZING donor committed to match ALL donations (up to $130,000) to Lifesong Ethiopia through the end of 2011?
Well, we found out about that donor on November 17th! That’s 45 days to raise $130,000… which made this goal seem next to impossible… in OUR eyes! However, as you all know… GOD had different plans for THESE kids –
and these kids –
Plans that we could never had imagined… plans to give them hope and a future!
Thanks to an AMAZING TEAM of individuals and their fundraising efforts, coupled with the provision of our Lord, THE MATCH HAS BEEN MET! Did you hear me? All ONE HUNDRED THIRTY THOUSAND DOLLARS has been donated for the children at the Adami Tulu and Ziway, Ethiopia schools!
We stand in complete awe of our MIGHTY Jehovah Jireh!
Thank you fundraising team for your efforts, for the way you never stop advocating for these children, and for our faith in our Lord God Almighty to provide for ALL of their needs!
Thank you donors who stepped up to the challenge and did not let the dollar amount get in the way… but trusted that EVERY one of your dollars mattered!
Thank you to all of you who advocated for these children, pray for them, and have invested in their lives… it will surely be an invest with an eternal reward!
**For those of you who were wanting to give towards this project but haven’t quite done so yet, it’s not too late… you can still help! Any giving towards Ethiopia now can help us fund the daily costs of 500 children per year ($180 p/yr, p/child)!
