June 2012

This month we have included links to websites and videos as a way to update you on what has been happening with Small World Connections. Just click on each link to see what God is up to through our ministry and how He is answering your prayers.

 

Please pray for each of these three areas and consider how you might get involved.

 

Kenya Go Team (June 14th – August 6th, 2012)

Fund-Raising to Buy Helping Hands Building (raising $40,000 by July 20th, 2012)

We are working hard to raise the funds for the down payment to purchase the building for Helping Hands Re-Sale in Chillicothe Illinois. This ministry helps fund ours and many other local and international charities.

 

In addition to praying you can:


  • Make a financial donation
  • Donate something cool for the auction at the banquet in July (we have things like a motorcycle and Cubs/Cards tickets so far)

  • Come to the banquet on July 7th (tickets required)
  • Buy or sell Threads of Hope bracelets (1/2 goes to our efforts and 1/2 goes back to help families in the Philippines)

Mexico Go Team (July 19th – 28th, 2012)

Last but not least we are sending a five person team to serve Lowell and Sheri Glick in Mexico in July. Please pray and consider helping this team finish off their support raising for the trip. The team members are David, Jacob, Josh, Diane and Hannah.
