Tonight is a big night for me.
Tonight is my major fundraiser for my mission to Mongolia.
Last night, I tossed and turned. Dreams waking me as I worried about what would happen. Would people enjoy themselves? Would I be able to raise enough money to really make this trip happen? I prayed every time I woke up (which was a lot), that the doubts would go away, that I could get a good nights rest so I could be the person God needs me to be today and the rest of my life. I was finally able to get about 2 hours of sleep in a row and woke up amazingly refreshed, although much earlier than I usually get up.
I began with the plans for the day. Getting the final details put together. Arranging the silent auction items so that it would be quick to transport when it is time to head out to church. Then focusing on my presentation to go with tonight’s meal.
I know that I can not do it all alone. I have many friends that have helped me through the maze of fundraising that is so far outside of my comfort zone, I don’t know what zone I am in. Most importantly, I have God. I know that when I follow His will for me, by my own free will to do so, the seemingly impossible can be achieved.
What can One Person do?
