So after 2 months of campaigning my target of $2000 was reached and an additional $819 was contributed!
This is a HUGE shoutout to everyone who made my trip possible. I am in the USA and the past 3 days have been a wonder-filled experience, especially in the light of the US presidential race that concluded yesterday (resulting in Donald Trump being elected the 45th POTUS).
I have seen where my sister lives and works and am excited about the 2 conferences that are taking place next week. Yes, you heard correct - I was blessed with the opportunity to attend an additional 3 day conference (ETS - Evangelical Theological Society). Following that one is the originally planned for 4 day AAR (American Academy of Religion) conference.
May you receive abundant blessings for sowing into my life/dream. Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
So the past week was simply overwhelming with contributions overtaking the target amount of $2000!
Thank you to two families and a friend for contributing $1537 over the past FOUR days - it is HUGELY appreciated!
Some folk have indicated that they would like to contribute even after the target has been achieved in order for me to have some 'spending' money - think food and maybe clothes :-) If you are one of them, you are welcome to still do so until midnight 6th November when the campaign will close.
To everyone who has been a part of my journey by means of prayer, sharing the word, contributing, and wishing me well - thank you from the bottom of my heart!
All of the best,
So the past week was really good with $260 added, bringing the total to $733 (37% of the required amount).
Thank you to one couple, a lady, and a gentleman for contributing the $260 - it is greatly appreciated!
I still need to raise $1267 in the next 3 weeks to reach my goal - are you going to be a part of this success story? I really hope so :-)
Hi everyone :-)
So this campaign started 3,5 weeks ago and we are 40% of the way with 21% of the funds raised (1% online and 20% offline). Thank you SO much to all of you who have contributed - some in finances and many in well wishes and prayers.
I'd appreciate it if you could assist me by getting this message and link (https://gogetfunding.com/shauns-texas-conference-a...) out on all your social media. If only 200 folk each gave $8 (R112) then we will reach the target! But don't be constrained by $8 because you can give as little as $1.
BTW - unfortunately the only way to contribute is either by PayPal or by a direct deposit (EFT). If you are looking for my banking details, please email me at shaun[at]joynt[dot]co[dot]za (replace the bracketed sections with the usual email conventions - this was done to prevent spambots from harvesting my email address).
Thanks and have a great week!
