Support Update and Financial Deadline 14 Days Away:
My outgoing budget is currently at 81% of the total $24,000 needed for flights, housing set up, training, etc. I only need $4,542 to hit this target.
My financial deadline is only 14 days away! I need to be at 100% by September 10th, the financial deadline, so I can go to RVA in October. We're so close!
Calling all Prayer Warriors:
I’m trying to gather a team of people who would be willing to keep me in their prayers in this next transition to Kenya. Are you in?
I just started to use an app called ECHO to share some "in the moment" prayer requests. It’s a great resource for keeping track of requests, being reminded to pray, and setting timed prayer sessions. I can share updates instantly and let you know when they've been answered and you can even leave comments. I’ve loved using it the past few weeks and I would really appreciate your prayers.
Disappointing News About My Eyesight:
Last week I went to the optometrist for a follow-up after my concussion. While I am back to normal I was wondering if my prescription had changed a bit. I had been noticing it was harder for my eyes to adjust and sometimes things were blurry - which in turn was leading to sore eyes and headaches. Unfortunately, the appointment revealed that I have something called a midline shift and accommodative insufficiency. Basically, as a result of my concussion, my eyes shifted and are no longer centered and they struggle to focus. I have to get specialized glasses, along with my prescription, I will need special lenses to help adjust for the shift. Due to the concussion, I will also need to wear the glasses full time instead of simple reading glasses like before. The new glasses are quite expensive and being that they are specialized I will need to buy two pairs. It is unlikely I will be able to get replacements while in Africa if anything happens. While I'm shocked and disappointed by this news, I'm glad I found out now before my big move. I understand these glasses should really help.
