Mel & Mike's Mission: Every Mickle Mek a Muckle
Organized by: Melissa Garza-Allen
EVENT DATE Jul 07, 2014
Thank you, thank you! With your donations, we have exceeded my goal! I will continue to raise money for the trip, so I'll leave the page open in case anyone else wants to participate. Every mickle mek a muckle!
Michael and I are joining a fabulous group of folks this summer for a week in Jamaica doing God's work. We'll be providing vacation bible school and painting schools in Hampstead and Freehill. We are thrilled to be included in the trip and feel blessed to have the opportunity to go.
I took this mission trip in high school and it was a week full of blessings that changed my life. This time, I’ll be able to share the experience with Michael and that is beyond amazing. I am so excited to "come back to Jamaica" and see all the progress that has happened over the past twenty-ish years. Did I say I was in high school? I meant kindergarten.
My birthday is May 20 and I have one very special wish: with your help, I would love to be able to cover the cost of the lunches for the kids during VBS. We will have fellowship with them over homemade meals of chicken stew, rice, peas and, I'm sure a plethora of papaya. We're expecting more than 100 kids so we need lots of mickles!
What's a mickle? It's a little bit. And a muckle is a lotta bit. "Every mickle mek a muckle" is an island phrase that means "every little bit counts". Whatever little bit you can donate means a muckle to me. (Of course, if you happen to have a muckle, we’ll take that too.)
Thanks so much for supporting our mission. I can’t wait to share pictures with you and tell you all about our trip!
