Since we’re planning to blog regularly when we make it to Zambia – there are details of how you can help that happen here – we thought it would be good to start now. First up is Let’s Walk The Greenhalghs to Zambia!
This took place on New Year’s Day, courtesy of two members of our church, Mike Hodgson and Jan Green. As soon as we told the church en masse about Mission Zambia, Mike and Jan touched our hearts no end by hatching a plan to raise some cash with a New Year’s Day walk.
Their scheme was simple: Walk three miles across rural Wirral on January 1 2019, with participants contributing however much they wanted to our fundraising pot.
Simple, but splendidly effective. God himself clearly approved, sending wonderful weather and some 30+ people to The Seven Stars car park in Thornton Hough to take part. Good friends invited all participants to their house afterwards for mulled wine and party food. It was a total blast from beginning to end.
The best thing about Let’s Walk The Greenhalghs to Zambia! wasn’t the fact that we all had a fantastic time, or that we raised more than £200 (some of it from people who couldn’t even take part), or that it might become a regular occurrence (watch this space).
The best thing about Let’s Walk The Greenhalghs to Zambia! was a group of people hearing about our impending move, and deciding that they were going to do something to help. Julie and I feel more touched by that than words could ever really say.
We’d love your support.
We’re really excited to have been given the opportunity to move to Kitwe as missionaries. But as we won’t be paid for our work, we would really appreciate it if you might consider helping us.
We are very aware of the financial pressures people are under. But if you feel you could help us financially, there are two ways to get involved. We really need individuals and businesses who would be able to sponsor us with a regular monthly payment of any amount.
One-off donations would also be amazing and can be made via our home church, Jubilee Church Wirral. Donating via Jubilee is safe and secure and means you can Gift Aid your donation. To donate, please visit bit.ly/missionzambia
If you do feel you would be able to sponsor us on a monthly basis, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 07714 102661.
We really appreciate your prayers and any help you can give us.
