Summary of Our First Missions Trip – Spring 2017

First of all, THANK YOU ALL for making the Thrift2Gift-Garner Store first missions trip possible.  Your continued support will help us help more children globally.

The trip covered the dates of May 15, 2017 – June 2, 2017.  I wish we would have had more time and resources, because there were so many children and families in need of help.  The organizations we supported on this trip were:

Happy Life Childrens’ Home,  Sheep Care Community School,  James 1:27 Strategic Missions, Heart of Mercy Orphanage and Musa Otieno Organization.  

We were able to carry a total of 8 large suitcases full of supplies.  The airlines charged us $200 per bag, which affected our ability to buy much needed rice, vegetables, flour, etc., for some of the families.

We were able to collect from our loyal customers and partners,  items such as sanitary napkins, panties, boys underwear, tee-shirts, soap, deodorant, books, pencils, pens, candy, knitted baby caps, toothbrushes, toothpaste, coloring books and crayons.


Our next trip will be in October 2017, only 3.5 months away.  We need serious financial donations to make this trip possible.  Our goal is to help a couple of the school girls, ages 11 and 13; they both have AIDS and need medication, as well as new school uniforms. 

We also want to ship books over ahead of time because of the massive weight of the books.  The books will help expand the school’s small library collection. This  will cost money.

PLEASE help us now by giving financially.  Go to http://www.KAECmissions.com  and donate generously. We NEED to focus on the finances first, then in August, we will start collecting supplies.

Thank you all so much for your love, support, encouragment and shopping with Thrift2Gift-Garner store on a weekly basis.  Please spread the word about us.  We really need more customers to shop with us in order to remain open.

Feel free to donate your gently used items, such as…..DVDs, CDs, Books, Household Items, Sheets, Towels, Men Shoes, Men pants, small size furniture items, and picture frames.

Stop by and see us soon. Remember to check our FaceBook page each week and find out the Word of the Week; use the Word of the Week to receive your discount when you shop.

A Journey of Trust

I am hours away from opening the doors for the very first time to a vision given by God Himself. The mission of Thrift2GIft-Garner is saving children globally, one child at a time. 

 

My heart leaps with joy knowing that I am touching the heart of God. Knowing that many others are praying, encouraging and sowing into this awesome vision.

This is a Body of Christ and Community effort. What Abba has planned has yet to unfold completely. 

Thrift2Gift-Garner, as well as our sister stores in Cary and Apex, have the opportunity to be a bright light in our local communities, help families to afford clothing and other items they need, reach out to individuals in transition from jail, homelessness, etc. The list goes on.

  
Thrift2Gift will touch Nations like Dominican Republic, Mexico, Kenya Africa, Haiti, Belize and Nations yet to be known. 

This is definitely a journey of trust because only Jehovah Jirah Himself can provide what we need to develop this vision long term. 

James 1:27 is who I am. The love of Jesus has given me a heart of flesh so that I am moved with compassion when I see others in need. I can’t imagine life any other way.   

   
How do you ignore these beautiful feet created by God and destined for greatness. 

We can’t. So we step out in faith and walk out the visions given by God; visions that will show us how to help others and be the salt of the earth. 

A journey of trust.

If you are moved at the sight of a problem, then God wants to give you the solution. Pray, seek and you will find. Be a doer and not just a hearer.
