This is entry #2 - The Jordanian Expedition. At the beginning of May, I will be traveling to the country of Jordan to witness first hand the Syrian refugee situation in the northern most part of the country.
As of Friday, only a week and two days after my last update (at which point I hadn't raised a penny) - I'm funded. I have the money for the ticket as well as the in country fees for food, travel, etc. That's $2,200. In a week.
I still have a month to prepare and raise medical and craft supplies to take. Otherwise, it's a beautiful time of rest in the Lord's unmerited grace and favor. He's poured out so much on me already and I haven't even really begun to emotionally prepare or grasp the reality of this trip.
I will still be accepting PayPal Friend/Family transfers. All funds raised from this point forward will be used solely to gift to the NGOs we will be working with on the ground as well as help pay baggage fees for what is hopefully a successful donation drive of goods to take with us. http://paypal.com/webapps/mpp/send-money-online
