So God has done some amazing things already here at the Platt household! We are around 7,000 total donated!! We are doing the fundraiser in three phases in which we are asking that a total of 100 people give 300 dollars. We have almost reached the first phase of thirty donations!! We only need 3000.00 more!! We feel so blessed and all together overwhelmed with His goodness! With the money you have given we were able to put a deposit down on Ywam to hold our spot and we also found some great deals on luggage! Our passports should be here soon and now we are waiting to raise that last 3000.00 so we can purchase our airline tickets! Again thank you! Through this all we have learned a few things..
1. God is in control..we have only the illusion that we are. This is a hard concept for many. However since I’m a control freak this is down right painful. I give it up to Him sometimes every hour on the hour.
2. He is faithful. Thru our family and friends and even perfect strangers He is using you to show us that He has this and will not forsake us. He is using people to be so generous to us so we can go and help change lives. We are so humbled.
So with that a few updates. We will most likely close on our house in three weeks!!! YIKES! Please be praying for that. Not just that it will go smooth but also for our hearts. This is our very first home where we had all of our babies and even though we know its just a home it was ours. We are thankful that God has given us buyers and we are ready for the new adventure He has for us.
We have mailed out all our support letters. Please be praying that the ones who will be giving will know our sincere gratitude. If you did not receive a letter but would like one please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That is all for now! I cannot wait to update you all with news that our first phase is done!
In His grip always,
Samm & Angie Platt
