Special Event with Nick Vujici in Panama
We appreciate your support to make this orphanage event possible.
We are thrilled at the news that Nick Vujicic is coming to Panama! We have so many exciting updates to give about ALL that has been happening here since we've returned, but for now we just wanted to share with you the opportunity that is before us and hope that you will want to get involved as explained in this email.

Who is Nick Vujicic?
This special man from Australia was born with no limbs, caused by a rare disorder. You can see his video on the attached you tube link
for a brief look at his amazing story. As you can imagine, his story and how the Lord saved him from a life of despair will soften even the hardest of hearts. His website can be found at www.lifewithoutlimbs.org
Goal for the event:
We received permission from Malambo orphanage to take 40 of the older children in the orphanage to the event. There is no telling what an impact this story will have on the future of these children and individuals. God uses this man in a powerful way everywhere he goes. I pray God will show these children that their situations, too, are not hopeless and that God Almighty cares for them. That many will put their hope and trust in Jesus. So, we are trying to get 1 ticket for each individual and the caretakers/volunteers who are helping with this event. These tickets are $20 each, and we need 50 (for a total of $1000). The event is on August 31st. We will rent a bus for $70 to transport the children to the event. So yes, we are asking for $1070 to be raised in the next week so that we can purchase the tickets as a group. We were informed by an event coordinator that he will section off a part for us so that we will all sit together (and not lose any kids!)
