It's not going to take you long to realise what this email is about is it? Well... I am writing to let you know that
So I am soon to finish working as a nurse in
I am THRILLED... I felt so bereft when I left before and never realised that I would get to go back. Looking back, I can see that this was a very necessary pit stop, but I didn't realise it at the time. I feel like God has healed so much in my own heart and shown me such goodness, I am ready to go and be part of Him healing lives inside and out again. If you don't know Mercy Ships, ask me... or visit www.mercyships.org . There's also a great little recent mercy ships video on You tube that says it all here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3pVMjBUUvA&feature=player_embedded#at=108
SO..... MONEY.... I hate to mention it... but if you in any way feel able to support this venture either as a one off or as a monthly contribution, then I would be exceedingly grateful. As you may remember, Mercy Ships is a voluntary organisation which means not only do I not get paid, but I also have to pay for the privilege of working as well as paying for flights to get there. Last time I had a few people sponsor me £5-50 a month and I always had enough so I am hoping something similar will work out. If you think you might be able to help then please could you let me know soon-ish and I can send the relevant gift aid forms to you, so I get more for every donation. Finance is just the boring bit... if you can support me in prayer or sending a cheery email now and then, that would be AMAZING! Keeping in touch with home really was a life source for me and I know it will be again!
If you're receiving this, it's because you're someone who means a lot to me - someone who has cheered me on, supported me and encouraged me in all sorts of different ways. So thank you for all your support in the journey so far. How incredibly humbling to know that God has weaved our lives together... I truly feel so thankful for each one of you.
I look forward to hearing more of what God is doing in your life and to sharing more of what He is doing in mine too... I only want the abundantly more than I can ask or imagine (Eph 3:20) and pray that for you too... may He blow your mind again and again,
love forever, K xxx
