Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

Reached the $400 mark

For my fundraising as of Friday! Whoo-Hoo!

I still have a lot of paintings to sell - I've been spending a fair amount of my spare time painting (and not writing either blog posts or working on the book I want to write).

I won't post a picture of any of the paintings I have for sale, because I have a very high turnover rate - by the time the photos of my previous lot of paintings posted a few days later, all but one had sold. But ask me, and I can show you photos on my camera. All paintings are $20.

I'm also selling felties again, and sell for $5.

I am also going to be selling chocolates, holding a book sale, and a few other things. I am very much wanting to raise all of the costs for this trip as I am looking at moving to Uganda in either 2013 or 2014.

If you have any fundraising ideas, or want to help out, I would LOVE to hear from you!

I hope to travel in June.
