Fully Funded

I know many people have probably wondered why I would want to go somewhere else this summer. But after Nicaragua there wasn’t any question to me that Nicaragua was going to be the end of my mission trips. On the car ride back home after Nicaragua I was already looking at trips for this summer. Through months of praying God has led me to Uganda, Africa for 23 days this summer! When I first signed up to go my dad told me he thought it was a lovely idea for me to want to go, but in reality it was going to be nearly impossible to get over $4,000 to go. (He’s such a realist.) Shortly after I was accepted I once again started fund raising, and at some moments I feel like I have begged a little, but all the same I have seen God work in ways I never could have imagine.  First, after months of looking for a job, and 18 applications later God provided me with a job where I get far more than enough hours! Which means more money for Uganda! I sold shirts, which I ended up selling 40 making around $500 off of them. And then there were also pure donations. It has been incredible seeing how God has provided once again! With one month and 20 days left until I fly out, I have all my money, plus the money needed to fly Georgia, and money for the necessary shots I need to be able to enter the country!

I would like to thank every single person who has made this possible for me to go! I feel honored that God has called me again to go!

Shirts for Uganda

Many people think my journey to Uganda starts on July 6th when I walk down a dirt path to the cabins at the AIM training camp. That, however, is not the case. My journey to Uganda, Africa started months ago with raising the funds to get to there. So far I’ve auctioned off a Letters in Nature Alphabet, sold candles, written support letters(, ect…  And I’m glad to say I already have half my money! Which means I now only need $2,325 to go! To help raise the rest I am selling T-shirts. Fund The Nations has designed the T-shirts. I’m selling each shirt for $20 each. (If I have to mail the shirt/shirts it will be $23 each.) The sizes range from small to 2X. The profit off of each shirt goes straight into my Uganda fund! (That percentage depends on how many shirts I sell but is at least 1/2.)

If you want to order a shirt/shirts send a check made out to me (Candace Jeffcoat) and put your t-shirt size/sizes on the memo line.  Mail it to:

Thank you all for your support!

Letters in Nature Alphabet for Auction

I am trying to get to Uganda this summer with Adventures in Missions.  To help raise money for this trip I will be selling and auctioning off different items.  My first item for auction is a 20 x 16 framed print of the alphabet made from pictures in nature I took myself.  The bidding starts now at $25.  The highest bid listed at 8:00 pm CST on January 24th on my Facebook or here on my Blog will be the winner.  If I need to ship the item to you the shipping cost will have to be added to the final price.  Please spread the word!
