Today I had a bit of discouraging day as my Mom and I received bad news about the fundraiser event that will take place at our church this Sunday. The man who expressed interest in cooking for the event told my Mom that instead of charging us $200, that now he increased the price to $300 plus we have to do all the shopping ourselves. I felt so disappointed because that’s a major setback of losing $100 from my fundraising.

My Mom made a decision to just do all the cooking herself so we wouldn’t have to lose that $100 from the funds that I’m raising to return to Romania. I felt frustrated because I know my Mom is already doing a lot with the decorating and baking so for her to cook for one hundred people that is a huge weight to put on herself. However I couldn’t change my Mom’s mind after she made it up because she can be a bit stubborn at times when she makes certain decisions. Though I can be like that too so I probably get that from my Mom!

I would really appreciate your prayers for God’s peace and provision that this spaghetti lunch fundraiser will go well and be a success. Thank-you so much for your prayers!
