Auction & Fundraiser

14976688_10157638937565332_64032145002246360_oThank you to everyone that made it out to our Auction and Fundraiser last weekend! It was a great success! With your help we were able to make over $3,700 towards our goal of buying a car and getting back to PNG. Praise God! We had a great time as Lloyd led a live auction, a silent auction and we had a dinner of wings/burgers/hotdogs and worship led by our friends Zech, Lydia, David and Julia. Thank you to all of our volunteers!

We are still $1558 short for our monthly goal. That is roughly just 16 more people partnering at $100 a month! If you have considered partnering with us in the past but just haven’t signed up yet, please sign up! We can’t buy our plane tickets until you do.

Go Until God Says No Fundraiser Success!

We want to personally thank everyone who came to our fundraiser on Saturday! It was such an awesome time and God really showed up. Our prayer for the night was that God would show up and “Steal our Show” (a Toby Mac song) and he really, REALLY did. It was incredible how God worked through the people that came to our event, and even through strangers that were just watching from other tables! My favorite moment of the night was when a stranger, from another party came over and asked Diana Parker what was going on? She told him, and he proceeded to bid $1000 towards an auction item! We had never met before, he hardly knew what the event was for. But God had him placed right there at the right time and chose our event to speak to his heart. It was such a humbling and overwhelming experience for Evan and I. We are so excited to get to Papua New Guinea and to be able to tell everyone about what God has done. I hope that everyone that was there on Saturday will share about what God did, because it really was AMAZING.

A verse that was given to Jane Halferty (Evan’s mom) after the event…

Philippians 4:19-20 ” And my God will supply all of your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus. Now to our God and Father be the glory forever and ever. Amen.”

Here are some pictures from the night.
