This update shares why international missions are important to our homeschool.
Thank you for your donations to our fundraising campaign for our missions trip to South Africa’s Teboho Trust school for at risk kids in Soweto.
We are so glad that Justine has been making some delicious fudge and wanted to bless you with some as a thank you gift, too. Our October 2014 donors will receive some fudge from Justine’s fresh batch soon.
CURRENT STATUS OF FUNDRAISER
Our current status in our fundraising campaign is that we are starting over. We decided that we would not give up on our missions trip goal, but that we would change our approach.

3 REASONS WHY
Having this opportunity to volunteer on a global scale is important for our young learners because:
- 1st – We believe in the mission of Teboho Trust, after reading about the founder and watching the video (click here to see video). Their goal is to be a safe place where their learners can focus on their studies, instead of all the surrounding drama, and successfully matriculate and move on to higher education.
- 2nd – We know that traveling, especially internationally, combined with volunteering, expands a student’s perspective of life and of the world, helping them to become more compassionate global citizens. This is because our mom, Donna, was an international volunteer in her youth, which shaped how she lives and educates her own children now.
- 3rd – Most importantly, we believe that Father God has a destiny in this for all of our young learners. There are some experiences that He has waiting for them in South Africa which will connect them with His destiny for their lives.
We would love to share with you as we take this journey. We will provide more updates through our fundraising campaign page on the gofundme platform.
