I'm in the process of getting together addresses for my support letters to go back to Ghana. I'm trying to decide if I should send letters to churches or people that didn't support me last time. I kind of figure that I should send them, I mean, who knows the reason for not supporting me the first time. Maybe there were financial reasons at the time, maybe they didn't feel passionate about the cause I don't know. Basically, I think that I should send out as many letters as possible. I've printed 50 up for now, I'm sure I will print more. I keep thinking, "oh, if I send out 100 letters and everyone donates $70 then I'm there!" but I know that isn't reasonable. It just doesn't work that way. I'm getting kind of excited/scared about the money. I'm scared that it will take a really long time to raise $7K, but I'm excited to see how fast God could send it in. I guess either way, the money will come in however God wants it to come in.

I would send one to everyone you could think of. I don't think it could hurt--the worst thing is they will say "no." It could be that they intended to support and just forgot to write the check when bills came around....or like you said, could have had a bad month financially, who knows!! But, you can always ask--the more the merrier. And, of course, you know that if this is THE PLAN, He will provide. And I'm so proud of you for all of this! YOU GO GIRL!
