Raffle for Kenya

Days like today I feel totally inadequate, but in my devotional reading today I was reminded that a shepherd boy defeated a giant and became king, a stutterer spoke to a mighty ruler and help set the captives free, a teenager gave birth to a savior, and a small boy gave a few fishes and loaves of bread and with God's help, fed thousands. Many of you know my church is sending a team to Kenya to help build a well. I can't go with them as much as I would love I donated a few things to a raffle to raise funds for the team...and I'm praying The Lord will use them to help the team do great things for God in Kenya. Will you pray with me for the health and safety for the team, that this raffle will raise immeasurably more funds than we dreamed possible, and that He prepares the hearts and minds of the people in Kenya to hear the good news?

Here are the items up for raffle:

Two tickets to a preseason football game, Ravens vs. Redskins, Saturday, August 23, 2014, 7:30 PM at M&T Bank stadium.

Two tickets to a baseball game, Orioles vs. Angels, Tuesday, July 29, 2014, 7:05 PM Camden Yards.

Tickets are $1.00 each or $10.00 for 12 tickets.  100% of the proceeds go to help fund the missions team to Kenya.  The frames were donated from Frames Galore Inc.  and the football tickets were donated by Pastor Ajay Vyas.  There are other possible donations, I will update the pictures and post again on Facebook when there is an update.  When you donate for the tickets your name and phone  number will be written on the back.  You may purchase as many tickets as you would like.  You may place individual tickets in containers of your choice or put them all in one container if that is the only item you would like.  The winners will be chosen randomly by an impartial person during a night of worship on June 29, 2014.  You do not need to be present to win, but we would love to have you there to worship with us!
