It is Giving Tuesday! What is Giving Tuesday? It is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when nonprofits focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
There are many wonderful ministries to give to and I ask that you prayerfully consider giving to Ministry Care. In particular, I ask that you give to a specific project. In January 2020 in Uganda, there will be a Children's Equipping Session for Trauma Healing. Rumbi Pisirai, who is now running the counseling ministry in Zimbabwe, has a heart to work with younger children in Zimbabwe. This training is a perfect opportunity for her to gain more experience and equipping in this area. When we worked together, we primarily worked with teenagers as my background is not in working with children and this is a gap in training for her.
The total cost for her to attend is $998. The breakdown of this is:
Transport to and from the airport: $140
Housing and meals for the 8 days: $200
Registration fee and materials for the 8-day training: $200
$200 has already been given to this project. We just need to raise an additional $798. If 16 of you would be willing to consider a one-time donation of $50, we would meet this goal.
Therefore, in honor of Giving Tuesday, would you consider making a donation to Ministry Care this month?
There are 2 ways you may donate. You can make checks payable to “Ministry Care” and send them to:

Or you can also make an online donation, using Givelify, on our website at www.ministrycareinternational.org.
You can make a note that is donation is for Rumbi. Because of the economic situation in Zimbabwe, Rumbi cannot attend this training on her own. But you can help make this happen for her! Thank you for your support for her and thank you for your partnership with Ministry Care.
Ministry Care is a 501c3 therefore your donation will be tax-deductible.

From my family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!
It is with gratitude and a full heart that I write to you. Thank you for the many prayers and financial gifts that you have shared with Ministry Care this year! We would not have been able to have done this work around the world without YOU!
Because of YOU, missionaries in crisis have been walked alongside, listened to, and encouraged. YOU have traveled to places globally like Bangladesh and Nicaragua-to places the Lord opened up that never seemed possible. YOU have provided a space for missionaries to debrief their service and to find a time of refreshment and renewal. YOU have provided training's in the states and in Ethiopia and have been involved in emotional healing with teenagers. YOU have prayed and walked alongside me when we had our own unexpected death and grief journey. This year has been full of mountains and valleys and YOU have been there every step of the way. What I do would not be possible if I did not have YOU!
May your Thanksgiving be filled with remembrances of what the Lord has done this year. And thank you again or your continued support and love as we work TOGETHER to further His kingdom and for His Glory.
