What can a day do?

Here is another one about Emily's upcoming trip.

So far, she has raised around $3,600 for her 7 month mission trip. Her goal is to raise a total of $8,000*.

The remainder of the money she needs is to cover her lodging, food, transportation and other living expenses. It works out to right around $25 a day she will need.

I would like to ask you to consider a monthly donation to help her cover these expenses. Our family is unable to pay all of that, so we are hoping you will see the value of paying for just one day ($25) a month from November through August.

Here is what a day can do:

- One day can mean an orphaned child seeing that they have a loving family for all eternity.

- One day can help some school kids see that someone cares about them and is even concerned about how well they do in the classroom.

- One day can show a delinquent kid in the Quito ghetto that he can be forgiven, and is life can mean something.

- One Day can inspire an Ecuadorian college student to devote their life to helping others and making their world better.

- One day can encourage a Pastor in Ecuador to continue keeping his hand to the plow and to continue to love and care for his city.

- One day can help someone from the U.S. to realize their dream of reaching across cultures to share God's love.

Will you be a part of that?
Go to her donation page and click the donate button. Fill in the details and remember to indicate that you are giving a monthly amount. We will be sure to remind you when you need to stop it in August:

Emily Allerton

$25 a month = 1 Day a month
$50 a month = 2 Day a month
$100 a month = 4 days a month

Thanks so much for all you do.

* Note: We found this trip to be very reasonable. Many short term mission trips last 1-3 weeks and are in the range of $2500-$4,000. For the amount this one will cost, she will be there for 7 months, giving her a real chance to learn the culture and make a real difference in people's lives. In addition to this, she will be helping others plan and serve in their short term missions.

Notwithstanding other donations we get from now til she leaves, we need around 30 people that will donate a day a month. Or 15 to donate two days a month. Or some that will give half a day and some that will do 2. You get the idea. Thanks for being a part of this.
