Aug 30, 2011 Prayer Updates

I am contacting pastors, friends, business owners and anyone else I can think of to try and raise $10,000 for an amazing opportunity to directly help with the need for food in Northern Kenya.

Our Go Team Director David Headley is also an Ambassador with the Illinois Soy Bean Association and has worked with the World Soy Foundation to help get 1/2 Million Dollars worth of soy flour donated for the need as refugees from Somalia pour over the border into Kenya in the middle of a terrible drought. The cost of the shipping to and transportation in Kenya is $10,000. Simply put, we want to raise that amount and get the container shipped as fast as possible.

Any donation made toward this effort will be tax dedictible. Checks can be made out to Small World Connections - 1623 North Finney Street, Chillicothe, IL 61523.

Here are a few thoughts David shared with me this morning as I prepared to write this request:

- US agriculture companies have donated several containers of soy flour to be used for the drought in the Horn of Africa where over 800,000 people are starving to death.

- The soy flour is US grade A flour which means this is an excellent product.

- There is a ministry in Kenya that will transport the flour to Northern Kenya once it arrives.

- The cost of transporting of the container from US to Northern Kenya is 10K.

Please get involved with this if you can and let me know if you have any other leads that might help us raise these funds.
