Thank you Friends and Family! :o)

Friends and Family,

Thank you, Thank You, Thank you!

We are Florida bound! We are so grateful to you, our friends and family for helping us raise money for our trip! We raised enough to go, with a little extra! :o)

As you know, 4 months ago, Don found out that he would be going to Orlando for some acting and singing competitions. He wanted to go, “but not unless my whole family can go with me,” he said. Also, as many of you know, we are working hard to get out of debt. So, taking 11 people to Orlando in 4 months without going further into debt seemed like an impossibility! We prayed and felt we had the Lord’s blessing to proceed with working toward the possibility for all of us to go to Orlando the end of June.

So, we decided to ask our friends and family for help, hiring us to do work you needed done, etc. Many of you gave us donations for our trip for which we are very grateful. Several of you sponsored our children to read books, for which they were delighted! Many of you gave us jobs to do as a family and we had fun working together! Some of the things we did were car detailing/washing, weeding, housework, pet-sitting, moving, donations of items for our garage sale, yard work, etc.

We’ve had a lot of fun working on this project together, but we couldn’t have done it without the Lord’s blessing and without the prayers, love and support of our friends and family.

PS Will you please keep us in your prayers as we travel the next two weeks? Also, will you please pray for Don’s sister Michaelle, as she continues to recover from breast cancer?

Thank you…God bless you,
Don and Lori Gordoni and Family
