Katie, here :) I decided that the blog should be started up again for the trip this year. There are six of us (from left to right: Ethan, Ben, Chad, Jerred, Katie, and John) going on the Scum trip to Glasgow this summer. Actually, we leave 2 weeks from Monday. Wow! Can't believe that it is so soon. Hopefully, we will be posting many more updates on our trip before, during and after.
We just had another fund-raiser last night at the church with some of our favorite Denver musicians. Thanks so much to everyone who helped out in so many different ways. Any bit of support has been so appreciated and is such a huge blessing!
We are currently in the process of applying for our visas. The U.K. has somewhat strict requirements as far as the paperwork/visa that is necessary for us to spend a month volunteering there. We will be partnering with the Glasgow City Mission (www.glasgowcitymission.com) and Glasgow Mosaic Church (glasgowmosaic.com). It has been great to be meeting as a team over the past few months, getting to know each other, and hearing more about what we will be doing while we're there. Our trip is from June 4th until July 4th. A whole month!
Please pray for our preparations, for our visas to be processed and returned a.s.a.p., and for the Lord to keep bringing the financial support we are hoping for. We still need about $7,000 to come in. Thanks for joining with us!
We are really getting excited! And I'm working on crossing things off of my to-do list as we speak. Hooray!
