I don't know who will see this here, but I have to believe it will be the right person at the right time. The book encourages us to give something outside our comfort zone. So when the opportunity to volunteer with Helps International Medical Teams to fly to Guatemala and give my nursing skills to help people in need came to me, instead of saying "oh I wish I could ", I actually accepted! This is huge for me. It is something I have wanted to do for years but have never felt empowered to follow through with. I am very excited but nervous. First off, the area isn't the safest to travel in. Secondly, it is a huge financial commitment, one I can't technically meet yet. But it definitely feels like the right time to do this so I am going to have faith that it is going to work out. My prayer request is this: As your gift today would you please pray for a safe trip, one that positivly impacts everyone involved. Please pray for the finances to come when they are supposed to. I know that not everyone can give financially, and I feel odd putting it out there but if you happen to be in a position to make a tax deductible donation or even to refer this information to a person/ business who can, please copy and paste the link below or contact me. Your well wishes are incredibly appreciated. Thank you so much for committing to these 29 days, I think its a powerful way to "be the change" instead of wishing for it. Blessings to you all. https://www.helpsintl.org/donate-to-helps Select donation page, "team donation " for Nonika Myers mission #2303
I just joined this website, but i have been working on my 29 gifts for a few weeks. I got busy and missed a day so i restarted 13 days ago, this time being mindful to log my gifts and make it part of my routine. Today i gave my daughter a ride home. She is 21 and usually takes the bus the few blocks to her appartment, but I have her a ride this time. It was nice to have some alone time with her and discuss how college is going and what her summer plans are.
