As most of you are aware, 100% of all funds given to E127 are sent straight to the mission field in order to continue doing ministry in Swaziland. We have monthly ministry expenses to feed and care for the orphans, run a christian preschool, provide for the pastors, and run daily feeding sites for impoverished children. We have had over $500.00 of Christmas gifts purchased for the orphaned children who live in our children’s home. We have also been given $500 toward the purchase of the cow in order to secure the land for the new church site across the border. Our son has also been raising funds toward a Christmas party, including food, a bounce castle and most importantly, the word of God! This will take place in Bulandzeni where the children have never experienced Christmas in a tangible way.
So, you can see that our desire to be on the ground within the next couple of weeks is weighing heavily on us. We need an additional $2000.00 for Wendy and I to make this trip possible. We have been attempting to supplement the monthly needs for quite sometime now cutting back on our own expenses here stateside in order to make certain everything is taken care of month after month. This time, we are unable to come up with the necessary funds to travel and are asking if you would pray about helping us get on the ground to take Christmas to the orphans as well as breathe life into our pastors.
We love you all and are incredibly thankful for your sacrifice to greater the kingdom of God!
In His Service,
Chad & Wendy
