This trip is for June 17-June 21. Not only will they compete but we will visit Washington, D.C for Haylee's Graduation and summer vacation trip. Donations of Airline tickets or hotel stay are welcomed!
Below is information on the families struggles this year:
As my family and I have gone through the process of financial ups and downs due to a job injury that happened in 2012 - THANK GOD I JUST WENT BACK TO WORK; my children have accrued a paper-route, as well as fundraise to pay for school stuff, church camp and other needs and activities.
My daughter, who is graduating, has fundraised and saved every dime of her paper-route for her senior prom (ticket, dress, everthing), senior trip, as well as paying for school club shirts (she is in multiple clubs: PHAST, S-Club, 2014 club, FFA, ColorGuard, Criminal Justice - just to name a few) and school supplies. I have not been able to give her the senior year we all hope to give our children. My daughter is looking forward to enrolling into college in the fall towards becoming a Forensic Scientist. We had to delay purchasing her a used car, as well as her going away to college for now. Our plan is she will start at the local Junior College as we save for her car and education.
My son (who is a sophomore) has done the same thing. He is in the fire-fighter explorers program, Marching Band and FFA and has paid for these expenses as well. He wants to be a Chaplin when he graduates.
Along with this they have continued to give their time, talent and tithes to our local church and other ministries. They are involved in the media department, children church department and any other place needed. They help with community and faith-based outreaches and LOVE helping others.
I believe and know that ALL blessings come from above and anything will be a GREAT Blessing to us.
Thank you in Advance,
Jeremiah 29:11 (AMP) For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.
Deuteronomy 1:11 (AMP) May the Lord, the God of your fathers, make you a thousand times as many as you are and bless you as HE has promised you!
