We are a little over a month away from our departure date! We appreciate all the love and support that has been pouring through for this ministry.
As our mission approaches, we have grown together as a team. Last week, we held a more intimate meeting at a our mission chair's home and experienced Tanzanian cuisine together. We drank (scalding) hot chai tea with chipsi mayai. We are super pumped to travel together and grow in Christ's name.
Our teams have been hard at work with fundraisers, but we're not there yet! There's so many ways to continue your support!
Our current active fundraisers include: re-purposed wooden benches, work week projects, benefit nights, and stress kits. If you are interested in purchasing a bench, please contact the AWF office. Our next Benefit Night will be at Piology this Friday (04/07/17) from 6-9; we earn 25% of each customer's order, so please bring your friends and family to support us! Our last fundraiser before the school year runs out is Stress Kits - these are the final's survival kit that helps any student through with delicious (and nutritious) snacks to help students study. Support a student of your choice and send them a care package during the wars of finals!
Work Weeks are so crucial to the Auburn Wesley Foundation Missions- locals sign up for students to carry out work within their homes and donate to our foundation for missions. This year, we decided to double the amount of projects we accept; we set the goal high and we are already more than halfway there! We have loved meeting new people within the Auburn/Opelika community and serving them with all of their needs. The AWF extends a huge thank you to everyone who has worked a work week project, supported a project, or referred our foundation to someone looking for help. Wesley Missions are great thanks to you!
Again, again, and again...
Keep praying, keep reaching out, and keep supporting us!
In all that you do, do it in the name of the Lord. Stay tuned for our next update!
In Christ's Love and Spirit,
2017 Tanzania Team
