Bro. Shobanke called Wednesday from Nigeria and it was so good to hear his voice. I miss my brothers and sisters in Nigeria and I look forward to returning to visit them again at my first opportunity.
Bro. Shobanke told me that Pastor Sam Snow will be going to Nigeria in December to dedicate a church he helped to build. I was thrilled to find out he is going. I know he loves to go, I know he is a great encouragement to them AND I really need to send some school supplies to GoodNews Christian School.
I contacted Bro. Snow and he is willing to take an extra piece of luggage with him so I have two courses of action. 1. We can purchase the school supplies and a cheapo suitcase and then ship all of that to Bro. Snow. 2. Or we can send Bro. Snow money for the supplies and suitcase along with a list of the school supplies we would like for him to purchase. With either option we will pay cost for Bro. Snow to take the extra piece of luggage on the airline.
Option number one is more fun for us because we get to shop and pick out all the stuff for the children but option number two is more cost effective since we would not have to pay for shipping from us to Texas in addition to everything else. We will figure all of that out in the next week or so.
We took a suitcase of school supplies in 2013, we sent another with Bro. David Eldridge in 2014 and we are so thankful it looks like we may get to send this one now. This a real tangible blessing to the school and the children. We told more about that HERE last year.
Both times we have done this we have heard from folks after the fact, that they would like to be involved in it. Now is your chance. It will probably cost $300-$500 for the high quality supplies, cheap suitcase and extra luggage fees depending on which airline Bro. Snow flies.
We are going to do this either way but if you would like to help, please let us know. We would love for you to be included. We will also be sending an offering to the school and to Pastor Shobanke and for various other projects. If we receive more than required to send the supplies we will apply it directly and completely to the other needs in Nigeria.
You can Donate from here on the blog or you can mail it to the address below. Either way please let us know you are helping toward school supplies in Nigeria and every dollar will go toward them as I mentioned above.
If you could see the smiles on their faces you would be as hooked on these kids as I am.
They are receiving a Christian based education that would be absolutely impossible if it were not for the big sacrifice of a few faithful folks. I sure want to add my little part.
Thanks and may God bless you, friends.
