McCurrach Wedding "Support Chimala" Fund
Organized by: Deborah Swanson
Hello Family and Friends!
We are so excited about what God is going to do through our wedding to help the people in Chimala. We realize there are a multitude of worthy causes to choose from both here and abroad, but we have a very personal connection (through Deborah's past summer as an intern working at the hospital in Chimala) with this cause and hope to stay invovled with the work being done in Chimala in the future. This money will be donated to Cheryl Bode a medical missionary who has spent the past 3 years of her life working alongside the Tanzanian people to help them bring healing both spiritually and physicaly to their country. We want to support her because we have a very personal understanding of all the good things she is in a position to do and her desire to be a good steward of the resources she is given. The hospital she oversees in Chimala is the only medical hospital for many miles and a large body of Tanzanian people would suffer without the medical care the Chimala hospital provides. This hospital has also been a wonderful catalyst for sharing the gospel and through the ministry of this facility, many souls have found redemption and healing while their physical needs were met. We are so grateful for your willigness to partner with us and while we realize this request is a little unconventional, we hope you know it means so much more to us than any other gracious gift you could give. We want our marriage to have an eternal focus with Christ at the center, and we feel like this a great way to start. We LOVE toasters, gift cards, plush bath towels, and spatulas, but we love this oppurtunity to support Chimala even more!
We appreciate you so much!
Garrett and Deborah :)
