Dear Loved Ones,
God has put it upon our hearts to use our wedding to bless others so we wanted to utilize the concept of a registry as a tool to raise funds for certain ministry needs in South Asia.
We are so thankful for all of your generous wedding gifts, but at a fundamental level we believe that they are more blessings than they are basic needs. Would you consider giving to those who are truly in need in lieu of or in addition to giving from the traditional registry?
If you prefer to give us a gift from one of the regular registries, that's ok! We truly appreciate your generosity in providing for our future! If, however, you would like to donate funds toward fighting sexual slavery, caring for impoverished street children, and spreading the message of Christ's love to those who don't know of Him, we can think to no greater blessing than for you to donate toward those causes in our soon to be united name!
The two organizations we have selected are ones that we know and trust. The Aruna Project was founded by a passionate acquaintance of ours. It seeks to free, empower, and employ women who are enslaved to sexual trafficking. If you would like to see one of their videos please click next on the photo tab to the left.
Empart was founded by the biological uncle of one of JT's groomsmen and seeks to holistically meet the spiritual and physical needs of unreached peoples in India.
Please check out their websites to get a better glimpse of the great work that they do! We have a total fundraising goal of $4000 and you can select which org you want your donations to go toward on the checkout screen.
