Still Time Left to Help Out

If you haven't done so yet, there's still time to help Michelle collect the funds needed to cover her airfare to visit her terminally ill mom.

Over $265 USD has been collected for Michelle over at Been There, Still There. Considering that the conversion rate is something like 5.90 South African Rand to one US dollar, that's good news indeed! If you haven't had a chance yet, please visit Laura's blog and clicky-click on the PayPal button in the upper right corner if you'd like to donate. Every dollar counts. Even ten US dollars translates into fifty-plus South African Rand! There's about a week left before Michelle has to make the final payment on the tickets (I believe the due date is March 17th?) If you could help, it would mean so much.

Michelle was recently blessed by an unexpected gift that was given to her at work. I am just so thrilled about that, and about the generosity of everyone in blogland who chipped in to help. This is what it's all about people!

If you can't give monetarily, please give in prayer that her needs will be met, and that God will provide for and protect Michelle and her son as they travel. Pray also too for their time with their family, and pray especially for Michelle's Mom.

"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." James 5:15-17

IMPORTANT UPDATE: I tried to post this yesterday, but Blogger was having fits. Michelle writes today that she received an anonymous thousand dollar donation! WOWEE! This is just absolutely wonderful news! I'm not sure what the total amount of funds raised is now, or how much more is needed - possibly a few more hundred? (by my guesstimate!)

I'm just so thrilled for Michelle. She truly took a leap of faith by booking the tickets, I'm overjoyed at how it's all working out for her! Praise God!
