Just a quick update on my fundraising for this year. Thank y’all so much for your prayers, e-mails and your financial gifts. I am $375 away from my goal of $4,000 which is part of the Scotland YAVs group goal of $16,000!


Alongside your prayers, (and reading my blog), one of the ways you can support me is my assisting in my fundraising efforts. Through the gifts of many and things such as the PC(USA) Pentecost Offering, much of the costs associated with funding YAVS for a year are taken care of. It costs between $21,000-29,000 to fund a full year per YAV. Each YAV is expected to raise a small portion of the costs of their year. As a YAV serving internationally, I am required to raise $4,000 between now and January 1st of next year, with a benchmark date of July 1st of this year to raise half of that amount.

One of the most essential parts of this whole journey is that I am not on it alone. Not only am I entering into this amazing community of like-minded young people but I have you all. This is an investment in me. One that I wouldn’t ask people to make in me, if I wasn’t willing to make it in myself. Not only will I be adding to my own fundraising pot, but I’m dedicating a year of my life to service and personal and spiritual growth.
