Fundraisers are a wonderful way to create awareness and generate extra funds for ministries. This particular fundraiser geared for women and thought of by our own Susan Leinen was no exception. I was asked to gather some helpers and run with the idea. The Lord brought together an amazing team. What great ideas to offer breakfast, lunch, 4 inspiring seminars, and some needed time for chatting. We ladies love that kind of thing! Susan started the day by giving an overview of the ministry of STN. As well, Flory Kumar shared what God is doing in she and Ryder’s lives as they will now be going back to India in September to live full time. Ryder will serve as the International Director of STN.
Over $4,000 raised in one day!
Basically all the food, deco, centerpieces, and misc. materials were donated by the committee and others. All 4 presenters donated their time so that practically all the monies collected from the cost of the day as well as raffle tickets could go towards the ministry of Shepherding the Nations! With 60 women registered to come to the event plus additional donations, STN collected $4,432.00! We are praising God for His continuous provision towards seeing His word go forth, His gospel spread, and precious pastors in India supported and equipped to teach God’s word to their own people.
Many, many thanks to my incredible planning team: Millie Afshin, Barbara Barnhill, Sheryl Hamlin, Missy Hunt, Pattie Ladell, Sonja Meier, and Tammy Werth.
And we are so thankful and grateful to our 4 seminar presenters: Michele Amoroso, Briana Steadman, Valerie Hasse, and Peggy Johnston.
It was certainly a wonderful day – one I think we will do again!
