Dear Providence Family,
Every year, a few weeks before Thanksgiving, a large group of partner churches, mission teams and individual supporters gather around a table in Northern California and share a beautiful meal together.
Beyond Our Borders is one of our largest annual fundraiser events, and brings people together from all over the Sacramento region to raise funds for Providence and inspire advocacy for the orphaned child. The evening features both live and silent auctions that in the past have raised considerable funds for the mission of Providence.
Last year, this group initiated the funding for the 3rd house, which is now in its final stage of construction. This year, the group set out to raise enough funds to cover all expenses that will allow us turn this house into an actual home. The event raised a total of $24,500! Praise God!
Building and filling the 3rd La Providencia home (and 4th) is part of our very bold and ambitious “Innovation 2016” campaign. Our goal is to raise $200,000 by the end of the year to accomplish several initiatives and projects that will help solidify and expand our framework of orphan excellence. Read more on Innovation 2016 here.
While we are well on our way to reaching our goal, we need you too!Will you help us reach our goal with your gift? Will you join the movement of loving orphaned children with excellence and invest in their future today? Sending in your gift will take about 2 minutes out of your day, but your impact will last a lifetime. Join us today!
I want to leave you with an excerpt of an inspiring story. We have asked several students across the country to be part of the Innovation 2016 movement. We asked them maximize their sphere of influence for the sake of the orphaned child. Here’s Jessica’s story:
Perhaps the students were interested in the novelty of it. Perhaps they truly loved the cause. Whatever the reason, Jessica refused to be hindered by the fear or uncertainty of her reach as “just a student.”
“I just went for it,” she said. And she was greatly rewarded.
