With less than a month to go until Bolivia, I wanted to let everyone know that I've reached my goal of $2,000 in support! Thanks so much to everyone who helped. I've never before been able to raise it all and have always had to come up with all or some of the money myself, so this is a huge answer to prayer.
Now, for those of you who didn't get to help but still want to, I'm working on another Bolivia-related project. My friend Edwin Vaca, who I've talked about in previous posts, has been working day and night at Bits and Cream ice cream shoppe to buy a $300 guitar pedal. Edwin is a worship leader within Aposento Alto church, and he is really into his music. It will take him a year to make that much money, and I'd rather him spend more time at school and less time making ice cream. So if you're interested in contributing to the trip, I'd love you to help me hook Edwin up. Any small amount helps - even $5!!!
You know how to reach me should you want to help... THANKS!
