Pledge “sendusback”

"I will be able to return, with my family of 5, to our lives and work in East Africa but only if 200 friends will generously support us with a $100 end-of-the-year gift to cover airfare, setup expenses, and depleted emergency funds."

— Seth and Emily

Deadline to sign up by: 26th December 2013
17 people signed up, 183 more were needed

More details
Send us back! By God's grace, we are preparing to return at the end of January to the work He has called us to in East Africa. We need to raise $20,000 for airfare, setup expenses, and emergency funds that were depleted to cover medical expenses for our youngest daughter.

We believe God has prepared 200 people who would joyfully support us with a special gift of $100. We are praying and believing that God would provide these $20,000 in the 20 days before Christmas 2013. 20 in 20.

While we believe God has prepared 200 gifts of $100, we don't presume to know where they will come from. We're looking for the people God has called to make a speical gift towards this. Would you prayerfully consider if you are one of those God has called to join with us in this? However God leads you, we'll be glad (yes, even if that means your joyful giving is directed elsewhere)! :-)

If He does lead you to support us with an end-of-the-year gift, sign-up once for each $100 you sense God calling you to pledge; if you feel called to give an amount that doesn't round-off at 100 or have any other questions, just contact us. We would be so glad to have you partner with us in this!

After you sign up, we will be in touch with details on how to give. Thank you so much for any ways you're able to partner with us! We are so grateful.

This pledge is now closed, as its deadline has passed.

  • So thankful for the many generous gifts/pledges - in awe of God's goodness! More than 45 $100-gifts have been given or pledged by more than 25 people. THANK YOU!

    In addition, we were able to procure airline tickets for nearly half(!) our budgeted cost - Praise the Lord! This reduces the total amount we need to raise from $20,000 to $15,000.

    Please pray and believe with us for the remaining $10,000! :-) Thank you.
