July 12 and 13 proved to be blisteringly hot, but the heat did not deter our Fremont Church from hosting a garage sale spearheaded by one of our members, Kathy Larsen. Proceeds from the sale went to help fund an ADRA mission project to sponsor goats to needy families in Uganda and open the way for the gospel to be shared there.
Church members and community people alike helped support the project, not just with their purchases, but through donations for the sale—two moving truck loads worth of furniture, toys, decor and other items. One business even donated a storage unit for the items until sale day. A table with free evangelistic literature was available, and many books, pamphlets and tracts were taken. About $1,800 was raised, which will sponsor 45 goats.
If God is speaking to your heart about helping this project, visit ADRA.org and browse their gift catalog. We praise God for the opportunity to share our blessings and support Adventist Missions.
