My friend Katherine Gould is a Christian in China talking to people about our Father. I think that’s one of the most awesome things someone can do! She is in need of some funds … much more than I can send. So I decided to have a “silent auction” of ten great Christian books. What began to happen amazed me! I suppose it’s no longer an auction, just an accumulation of gifts!
There have now been two $100 matching gifts that have been answered, and some other bids as well. I hope we can keep this going over the weekend and that by Monday we’ll have accumulated a great gift for Katherine to be able to stay in China to continue her work. We don’t want her having to come home and travel around raising funds – that’s waisting time and money. Can you help?
I will update the bids as I get them. You can place them in comments here, send them to me via email (johndobbs1130 at gmail dot com), text me, direct message me on Twitter, or send me a message on Facebook. (If you just bid in the newsfeed or twitter stream, I’ll never see it I’m sure!). We’ll wrap things up Monday morning – hopefully with at least $1,000!
Those who are sending gifts (whether you are adding them to our website or not) can send them to:
Garden Ridge Church of Christ
102 N. Garden Ridge
Lewisville, TX 75067
Be sure to earmark your gift for Katherine Gould.
*****Lee Olivas just bumped us to $470!*****
