Big Ask List

Alright everyone.   Here’s the list of all the items needed for Sarah Jones Orphanage in Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras. (Want to know why we get behind “Big Ask Projects” like this?  Read here)   The time we have to collect these items is VERY short, so this is gonna get all kinds of crazy up in here.  Step one is to begin to collect these items.  Need a little inspiration?   Check out Sarah’s story on her blog here:   Thank you in advance actionchurch…I know that together we can do amazing things for Sarah and her girls!  -Don

***UPDATE***   We will have a drop off point starting this Sunday (9/2) for any of the small items you may have.  We will also have info at  “Big ASK” table about the sponsoring the girls at the orphanage, sign up lists for items, and will be taking donations for the large appliance.  ALL ITEMS have to be collected no later than Sunday 9/16.  We’ve got a little over two weeks to be part of a miracle!   Don’t miss Sunday as Kenna lays out the plan!  In the mean time, please contact us if you have any questions or have any of the larger items on the list.
