I got to bed at 3.30am, but I wanted to get a quick update posted this morning for all of our awesome supporters and prayer warriors. The Annual Banquet was an overwhelming success... beautiful venue with a very elegant touch... phenomenal army of volunteers setting up and breaking down in record time... a packed house of THE BEST supporters... delicious food & gourmet coffee... extremely talented pianist... amazing testimonies of how God used our tiny unique ministry to change lives and save souls... the greatest GTD HIGHLIGHT VIDEO EVER MADE... wall to wall GTD swag... record breaking night of donations... full and overflowing hearts... WONDERFUL NIGHT!!!! PTL!!!
Our caterers were fantastic... they had a couple of hiccups that pushed the timeline off (sort of like a typical GTD event LOL)... so I scrambled all night long to rearrange the agenda like a quarterback calling audibles at the line of scrimmage to try to still fit everything in... our wonderful guests and attendees rolled with it so well and voluntarily stayed later for final testimonies, raffles, and even to help break everything down... even the banquet hall manager talked about how incredibly helpful everyone was.
An overwhelming success on all fronts!! We are so touched and blown away by the level of love and support we received from so many incredible people. Our hearts overflow with gratefulness!!
Aaaaaaaaand we are astounded by the amount of donations that poured in last night and over the past 2 weeks... 42k pre-raised before the banquet and an additional 40k raised last night (preliminary numbers that are already going up)... that means over 82k raised so far!!! Our goal is 100k by the end of January... we are 82% of the way with 2.5 months to go... WOW!!! Blown away!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you to EVERYONE involved!!!!! God bless you dear friends!!! MORE INFO TO COME =)
