Going into this weekend we were a few thousand dollars short for our Kenya Mission Trip.
We had one fundraiser left...a softball tournament...for this weekend...Projecting to make the rest of our funding.
Then half the teams cancelled. So we cancelled the event.
Then it rained anyways, which made the cancellation not feel as bad.
Then we mulched our friends (Scott and Angie...avid members of my blog readership...and Akron Zips Fans...makes 'em weird, I know) yard for a donation to the trip. Then we found out that a Sunday School Class at Church wants to donate to the trip. Then, my mom comes along and offers a deal to cover the rest of the expenses for the trip in exchange for some yardwork and painting.
We went into the weekend expecting to fundraise the rest of the trip through softball...We came out of the weekend meeting our goals. Kenya here we come! Gonna make our full flight payments tomorrow!
