Here it is the middle of August already; I can hardly believe it! Things are going smoothly with my plans for going to Chad. It looks like I will be leaving in about a month; sometime in the middle of September, hopefully. :)
The biggest step that remains to be completed is still raising all of the funds that I will need for my time in Chad. My goal is $5,500, and so far I have raised $3,137. I am amazed by the generosity of so many people. Thank you so much to all of you for your encouragement and support. I appreciate you all so much!
A couple of things have been slightly updated since my last post, and I want to keep you in the loop! First of all, I have a CrowdRise account set up through the Walla Walla Student Missions Department. Basically it's an online fundraising service, which makes it really easy to donate to a cause. I am fairly certain that if you follow this link: https://www.crowdrise.com/wwustudentmissions/fundraiser/sarahsnyder it will take you to my page where you can easily donate online, so feel free to check that out.
I think the only other significant change is that I added a little item to the homepage of this blog (located somewhere on the right margin of your screen) where you can enter your email address, and be notified whenever I post to this blog. If that interests you, feel free to type your email address in and press "enter." (Or "subscribe," or whatever the little button says). I promise I won't sell your contact information to anyone. Just kidding; I won't even have access to your email address. But if I did, I wouldn't sell it.....
