I've heard it said before that if you don't ever fail, that means you're not taking enough risks. I think it was pertaining to the fact that one of the "home run kings" in baseball was also the strikeout leader. So he was the leader in succeeding and the leader in a certain type of failure.
Tomorrow I'm going to kick off something that might be either. It might be a home run - or it might be a strike out. We won't know until we put some effort into it and ask, in prayer, that God blesses it. I'll tell you more about the details of it tomorrow and in the days following.
For now, I'm going to tell you that it has to do with two main goals:
- We need to collect 500 boxes of diapers to "finish" filling a container to send from Michigan down to Haiti. In addition to the diapers, we're sending down 10,000 sq. ft of artificial turf for the playground at the new orphanage facility.
- It's going to cost approximately $12,000 to ship the container down to Haiti. We need to raise the funds to do that.
What sort of time frame are we on? Well, given that the artificial turf is frozen under several feet of snow and Michigan is in one of its snowiest winters in 20 plus years, we've set a goal of accomplishing both of these by the end of March.
Stay tuned, it's going to be interesting, I hope it will be fun and I trust that God will bless our efforts to help the kids at GLA.
