Send Off Party

Tonight our Sunday School class gathered at Tyler & Amy Ross’ house for a cookout and time of prayer for our trip. Trey had a blast playing with his pals one last time and we were greatly encouraged by the support of all of our friends. Here are some images from the event:

Football was on TV - no, AMERICAN football Madeleine loved the camera flash The youngest of the kids hanging out
Neil is still recovering from hernia surgery Perrys and Materassos have some laughs - probably about baby potty humor Mikey loves hamming it up for cameras
Phoenix takes things a little more seriously Huh? Phoenix checking out a backyard buddha
Trey and Mikey hanging out - earlier Trey was bopping Mikey on the head Bird’s Eye View It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… SUPER Ava!
Mikey takes to the skies Our Awesome Hosts! Yes?

Travel Expenses Covered

We thank God for answering our prayers and providing for all of our travel expenses. SFBC just called us to let us know how much money was raised at the pancake breakfast and from individual people’s contributions. All of our travel expenses have been covered and we will have some extra money to purchase supplies to deliver to the hospital and missionary personnel on the field.

If you contributed in any way we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Every time we have gone on a mission trip our friends and family have stepped up and made it financially possible. So thank you for making our opportunities to serve realities.

Thank you for your support!

Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser

Sunday morning the youth at our church help throw a pancake breakfast fundraiser for our upcoming trip. They made & served pancakes for the church and asked for donations for our trip.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who has contributed and to the youth who got up so early on Sunday morning to work on the fundraiser. Here are some photos of them hard at work. Also, those of you that attended our wedding may recognize the aprons.
