checking things out

we are going tomorrow to look at a place for the benefit dinner / silent auction and I have already been overwhelmed by the tremendous support and love people are pouring out to me and this project. I already have a few donations and i know that is just the start. chann is going to probably play with some of his friends and he is going to set up itickets so we can sell tickets online. genius!
God is good!

plans plans plans

my heart swells when i think about the excitement that is right around the corner. it was absolutely amazing to experience God's provision and love for me as i planned and fundraised last year. this year, i am confident, will be no less amazing. i am calling today to get more details about a possible location for the benefit dinner and silent auction. i am in need of donated items to auction off so if anyone has any ideas let me know. they can be as simple as gift cards or gift baskets you purchase yourself or donated items or services from local businesses. so far i have a few gift baskets, some jewelry and maybe some photographs and art work.
there is still some talk of a show so stay tuned for more info on that.
in a side note, this morning i really missed my gulu family. the people i met there will forever be a huge part of my heart and this morning missing them hit me hard. i am so thankful for what God has done to me and in my heart through serving in gulu. as i continually work through all the He is trying to teach me i am overwhelmed by His love and His compassion for us and His goodness that we get to experience love and compassion FROM His people because of Him. does that make any sense to anyone? the inner-workings of a not-so-great writer, i would love some comments (:
