WHAT -- Mission Fest Fundraiser for Sam and Wendy Lemmons
WHEN -- Sat. April 13 from 4-7pm
WHERE -- New LifeBridge property: 16614 Mueschke Rd. Note: in case of bad weather, the event would move to St. John Lutheran church at 15235 Spring Cypress Rd.
As you may know, God has opened some amazing doors for LifeBridge to be involved in missions work in Nepal (see more below). At every turn He has amazed us, and He has done it to us again. We are very humbled to announce that we will be sending two of our own -- Sam and Wendy Lemmons -- to serve as full time missionaries in Nepal.
We are very excited....but honestly, we need some help! The cost for sending them for two years comes out to $84,000, which will be entirely self-funded. This goes beyond what our little church is able to do on our own, so we are reaching out to the St. John Lutheran Church family, along with extended connections of Sam and Wendy, and asking you to partner with us to make this happen.
Please join us on Saturday, April 13 from 4-7 for an afternoon of mission fun as we enjoy a BBQ dinner, listen to the music of several local music groups, have a silent auction, hear from a Nepali singing/dance group, and (most importantly) rally together to raise the money needed to send Sam and Wendy as missionaries to Nepal.
If you are planning to attend, could you please RSVP to help us get a better feel for how much food to prepare :-)
Sam and Wendy leave for missions training in Colorado the very next morning, so we are praying that we will raise the entire $84,000 by the end of this evening. Their house is sold, jobs are winding down, and they plan on being in Nepal by June. Please come out, see the new LifeBridge property, and be outrageously generous as we rally together to support this mission.
Check out Sam and Wendy's donation page to see how they are doing. Also, donations that are given the night of the event will be matched dollar for dollar -- up to $25,000 total.
