Only $2,532 to go!

July 22, 2014 at 1:03 PM by Susanna


As soon as the last $2532 is given, and Brandi’s fund reaches $19,742, the matching grant will kick in with $4625, and Brandi’s fund will rise to $24,367!

$2,532 is mere pennies to God, friends!

So please keep on spreading the word, and if you haven’t taken the time to give yet, Dan and Jeannie surely could use the help now.

They are getting down to the wire, leaving next weekend for Bulgaria.

It is so lovely to see.

In the midst of your own busy lives, you are taking time to surround the Myers family with encouragement.  The moral support every gift adds is huge.  Now they know they have a multitude of brothers and sisters praying for them and willing to help.  This is not a small thing!

Bless you!!

Here’s the challenge you’ve been waiting for, but with a fun twist!

This morning, Brandi’s matching grant fund reached its goal and then some!

The final figure for Brandi’s matching grant?





Every penny of this matching grant is being offered with love and the desire to encourage others to quickly help fill in the remaining amount of what Dan and Jeannie need in the near future!

The final donation put the total over our original goal amount, but since the Myers still have quite a way to go in order to be fully funded, we are going to go ahead and make $4625 the goal amount!


Right now, the Bringing Brandi Home YouCaring fund reads $15,117.


Once her fund reaches $19,742, your gifts will be doubled and the matching funds given.


Her fund will then jump to $24,367!  Happy day!


So if you’ve been waiting for this update, wait no longer!


It’s your turn!  Please don’t put this one off!  The faster the goal is reached, the sooner Dan and Jeannie can go buy those plane tickets!!


Get ready, get set,


Go, friends, GO!!!

In praise of Real

*looking at the supper table speculatively*


Wonder how long it’s been since we set the table with real plates?

Not what I always imagined for our family by a long shot.

It always seems like what’s coming after the meal

is more important than washing real dishes.

Like real people.

So if we have to choose…

…and right now we cannot choose both…

Real plates or real people?

Throw away plates or throw away people?

Well, if you’re going to put it like that…

Mom:  Why?

Stephen:  It’s because Aslan’s country is the real Narnia.
