Would You Like to Help the Teen Girls of the Contact Church?

We received the following e-mail from Sarah Logsdon this morning:

Dear Friends and Supporters of Contact Church of Christ,
For the past three months our teen girls have been working to raise money for a trip to Houston. The purpose of the trip is to provide an opportunity for the girls to have new experiences, learn something of the world outside of Tulsa, and open their eyes to new possibilities. The girls, along with their chaperones (Darlene Lawrence, Cathy Gotcher, and Devin Dupree) hope to visit NASA's Houston Space Center and the Holocaust Museum, as well as journey to Galveston to see the ocean, something none of our girls have ever seen before.
We have had our car washes, bake sales, and a big thrift sale to raise money. The girls have worked hard to earn their way to Houston, and God has definitely blessed their efforts.
However, we are still several hundred dollars short of what we need to make this trip. This is where you can step in and help! We are having a "No Bake, Bake Sale." Instead of donating baked goods for us to sell, we are asking you to take the amount of money you would spend on sugar, eggs, butter, etc...and donate that to us. We are grateful for any amount you feel you can give.
Please mail all donations to:
Contact Church of Christ
ATTN: Teen Girls Ministry
1529 W. 49th Street
Tulsa, OK 74107
The girls leave on July 10th, so we need to wrap up our fundraising as soon as possible. Please mail all donations by this Friday, June 27th; however, we will continue accepting donations throughout the rest of the summer. Thank you for caring about these girls and helping to make this trip happen for them. We also ask that you offer up prayers for this trip and these special girls. We especially ask for prayers that this trip will provide them with a new vision of how God can work in their lives.
In Christ,
Sarah Logsdon
P.S. Attached is a picture of the girls who are going to Houston: Jeneva, Porsche, Brittany, Jimisha, and Breanna.

I am going to see if we can't support this great ministry. Thank you for letting us know about what God is doing at Contact Church. Praise God for reaching out to teen girls. It is so important. I believe girls are neglected in most churches. We think they don't have any "authority or role" so why should we help them. Yet God see's things quite differently. So I am so excited about this ministry and am looking forward to supporting it in the future. Thank you again for letting us know. I hope you have a wonderful week.

Thank you so much, Terry for posting this on your blog! God has been so faithful in helping us reach this point in our planning. It's going to be amazing to see how He works in the next few weeks!
