In less than two months Wesley and I will be landing in America for eight or nine weeks. During that trip we’ll be based in Newberg, Oregon, but in mid-October to early November we are venturing out on a sub-trip to
- Madison, WI
- Grand Rapids, MI
- Lansing/Holt, MI
- Detroit, MI
- Kitchener, ON
- Lancaster, PA
- Baltimore, MD
- Asheville, NC
- Hamilton/Cincinnati, OH
- Pittsburgh, PA
and then up to Yakima and Spokane, WA on November . If you are somewhere along these trails and want to get together or come here me speak, let me know right away!
There are few things that we need help with, though. The first thing is money. We need to raise $4,000 to do the whole trip within the next month. If you could give a gift, large or small, toward that trip, please go to the Lahash donation page for a tax-deductible method, or give via Paypal for a non-tax-deductible method.
The second thing is that I’d love to throw a thank you partner for our financial supporters in the Portland area. Is there anyone out there who would like to host a party for about twenty people on a date in early October?
Thing Three is, if any of you are cleaning out kids’ closets and come across some size 3T/4T girls or 5/6/7 boys clothes, will you set them aside for me? We really appreciate the hand-me-downs and have to stock up for about two years, so it would be such a help to us.
Finally, I’m really looking forward to seeing a lot of friends while I’m back there, so please get in touch to set up a time to hang out during October or November. Three weeks are already scratched because of the trip to middle America, so get on the books fast!
Thanks for being the kind of community that we can count on for help in a variety of ways. We appreciate you all!
