As I type this I am sitting in the spare bed room at my in laws house in Michigan. Ahh, how nice it truly is to be home surrounded by family, friends and the little things that just scream 'home' (like a cup of American coffee with flavored creamer, mass in English and friendly, familiar faces). At the start of our trip we were welcomed back by the good 'ole midwestern flu virus. Ben even had a stomach emptying episode on our last flight. #memorable
But, now that we are all feeling better we've been scurrying around from meeting to meeting, trying to see as many people and get as much done as possible. If we haven't seen you yet -- please forgive us! This trip was particularly short and we will be doing a SPONSOR POT LUCK in August when we return home. We look forward to catching up face to face with more people then.
One of the most exciting events we want to share with you all is our BBOH Charity Auction! We met with the BBOH Ambassadors and their dedicated Auction Planning group -- and we were BLOWN away! They have put so much time, energy and passion into this event....we are truly humbled by their love for Building Bridges of Hope and FUMSIL.
Please join us for an evening of food, fun, and fellowship as we raise funds to support BBOH activities, including the startup of construction for a new mission house.
Please check out the Raise the Roof website here for more info and to purchase tickets online!
If anyone is interested in putting together a silent auction basket or donating a live auction item, please contact Lindsay Nelson (our Lead Ambassador and Chair of the Auction Committee) at firstname.lastname@example.org We greatly appreciate all of the donations, allowing us to raise the needed funds to continue reaching out to people along the Haiti - Dominican border!
We are Catholic lay missionaries serving along the border of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
