God At Work!: CHICK-FIL-A

On November 16th we had our Chick-fil-A fundraiser. I was overwhelmed by the love and support of the hundreds who came from Beavercreek, Dayton and the surrounding area.
Chick-fil-A reported it was the biggest missions fundraiser they've seen, bringing in over $1,400 in food sales translating to over $200 in support to get me that much closer to Gabon!

A big thank you to:
Hillside Chapel
Faircreek Church
Church of the Nazarene

and all the individuals who camped out, brought friends, ate both lunch and dinner, had staff meetings, passed out flyers, youth group gatherings, young adult meetings, brought a big group of people last minute at 10pm to help out and just plain got the word out, THANK YOU!

THANK YOU Chick-fil-A!

Praise the Lord! I am one step closer to Gabon!

Thank you for praying!


  1. Praise the Lord! I just read your last two updates and am so moved by the way God is faithfully preparing a way for you to go. You can rest assured that He is no less actively preparing hearts and minds in Gabon ahead of you as well. What wonderful news to see!

  2. Good morning how are you?

    My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

    I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately it’s impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

    For all this I would ask you one small favour:
    Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Gabon? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Gabon in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and a original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

    Emilio Fernandez Esteban
    Calle Valencia, 39 Bajo C
    28903 Getafe (Madrid)

    If you wish, you can visit my blog www.cartasenmibuzon.blogspot.com, where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

    Finally I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

    Yours Sincerely
