A Successful Yard Sale

We held our first team fundraiser this past weekend with a church yard sale on Friday and Saturday (March 4-5). We want to extend a huge "Thank You" to everyone in the church who donated their stuff for us to sell. We had a huge selection of clothing, furniture, electronics, appliances, housewares and more! We're also grateful to all of you that came out and supported us by buying other people's stuff.

The yard sale was a huge success, making over $1300 for the weekend. Each of the team members that helped run the sale made over $100 each day toward the $2000 they need to raise for our trip to Bulgaria. The weekend was a great start!

On Saturday, March 18th, we'll have another sale following the Sunday School's sale the day before. Again, we'll be located in the Calvary Chapel Bullhead City parking lot at 1690 Newberry Drive. We appreciate donations of all the stuff you're holding on to but don't really need and, of course, we encourage you to come by and check out the sale.

One more note of interest... We've added a new team member. Roy's dad, Vernon Garrett, has joined our group after much prayer. He was concerned about being able to get time off from work over a major holiday, but God answered prayer and he's been cleared for the dates of the trip! Vernon has been attending Calvary for about two years now, and we're all excited to have him joining us. We know God has great things planned for him and the rest of us in Bulgaria this year.

слава на Бога
(Glory to God)
