In a little less than 40 days I will be 40. I believe God is working through these 40 days to do something big for His Kingdom. That being said, I believe we can raise $10,000 in 40 days to help the people of Dube Bute. God is in charge of this, we are just vessels. Let's all be a part of an effort that is so ridiculous that only God could provide and only God could receive the glory.
Through a miraculous set of circumstances, our family has had the joy of following the Alexander family as they adopted Abe, and then Eyasu. We've read about their struggles, their triumphs, and their heart for the people of Ethiopia. We have been drawn in to their calling. I have prayerfully read and pondered how to best support the efforts they started. This is one way we can help.
My Campaign is in place to raise money to meet the Alexander's dream for the village of Dube Bute through general fund raising. The $10,000 that we collectively donate will cover almost 25% of the remaining funds needed to complete the Dube Bute project and provide sustainable and abundant life for an entire village of people.
