to haiti with love.


When I married Nate, I inherited a whole bunch of Volkswagen parts, a dog with a seizure disorder and 7 younger siblings.

Auntie Mel is one of Claire’s favorite people. She is the reason that Sunday is Claire's favorite day. We see Mel every Sunday. We recently had two days in a row with Mel, this blew Claire’s mind. “Mama, it would be awesome if we had 60 days in a row with Auntie Mel.” Yes, Clairegirl. Yes it would.

Auntie Mel is gearing up to travel to Haiti. She will serve with a group from Youth with a Mission and from our church. She will be there to serve, but having gone on short trips for “ministry” I am aware that Mel will be the one who will be changed. When I heard about this trip I told Mel that she just had to go. When you’re fifteen and you live in our little city, you need to see something different. You need to be stretched. It's especially great if you can be changed by God.

So, friends, this is how you help. Mel needs to raise $1400 for her trip. She hand makes some really cool bracelets. If you'd like to be entered into a drawing to win one of two bracelets, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. I'll draw two names at random from the comments. I’ll also donate $1 for every comment left. One comment per person. Let’s go ahead and give my little sister in-a-law a whole bunch of money. She is extraordinary.

She is also selling bracelets for $6 with proceeds going toward her trip. Shoot me an email if you want to buy 10 or 20 of them.

I’ll close comments and draw 2 winners at random on Sunday at 5 PM.

Yay for short-term missions...or summer-long internships. And Haiti will definitely change her heart. It did mine. Give Clairegirl a kiss for me. Btw, did you get my card?

The Millers love Aunt Mel, even if she used to be scared of Matt and his "foofy foofy" brown hair I believe, or maybe it was Chare' she was scared of! Anyways, glad to comment and help raise some money for her! You're a great SIL to her Kar. Now I gotta ask her about those bracelets!

So excited for her and the people she will have the chance to minister to. Sign me up for the bracelets. I have some little girlies of my own who would adore them!

May I give your address to spammers to inundate you with "comments," so as to raise more money?
