Our First Event
Yesterday was such an awesome day for All Things New! It may not sound like a big deal, but we had our first “fundraising event.” East Hampton (a local neighborhood in Jacksonville) had their bi-annual community garage sale and a couple on our advisory team and with our church live in this neighborhood. Mark and Karen Whalen had the vision to let this garage sale double as a fundraising event for the orphanage, and it was great! It was a time of fellowship with friends, a great way to publicize the ministry, and a fundraising event that doubled what we hoped to bring in…We brought in over $1,100! God really blessed this time and it just shows us, again, how important it is to have people like the Whalens on our side. We have been blessed with a lot of wonderful relationships, and this is definitely one that we could not succeed without.
Please continue to pray for us, and pray that God would continue to put people like Mark and Karen in our lives!
