First of all Steve and I want to thank your for all the support we have received over the past month. Almost every day we get emails from people who are excited about this project. It is a blessing to know how many people are praying for us and seriously thinking through what we have encountered along our journey.
We also want to thank those who have made it financially possible to do this trip. With your support we have now made it half way with many stories, photos and interviews to show for it.
In order to finish our journey we still need to cover a few more costs. Please help us see this journey through to completion.
We now have a good idea of how things work so we thought we would break down our daily costs to show how your donation can help:
$2 means an hour each of Internet time which is an essential for keeping up a blog.
$10 provides a bus ticket to the next town.
$20 lets us stay in a hotel for a night instead of fighting over park benches (just kidding we haven't had to do that. yet)
$60 will cover our expenses for an entire day including food, water, hotel, Internet, and transportation.
Steve also mentioned that if we got 4000 people to donate $0.50 we could cover all our costs and then some. Spread the word...
Donations are tax deductable as well.
In all we have about 25 days left before finnishing up in Tucson.
If you like using technology you can send donations using the donate button on the left column of our blog.
If Paypal makes you squeamish you may also mail donations to:
Attn: Desert Footprints
1405 Albany Ave. NE,
Orange City, Iowa 51041
God is at work here there is no doubt about that. We see him working through the ministries at Casa Del Migrante, we saw him touching the lives of injured migrants at Albergue Jesus el Buen Pastor, and we hear the testimony of his faithfulness from migrants almost every day who continue to be tested along thier journey.
With your help we hope to continue learning how we as Americans may best join in God's work here through seeking justice and showing love to immigrants in the U.S.
Thank you for your support,
Steve Eaton & Nathan Poel
