Please help fund my Greek family to come to America for my sister Johanna's wedding. I am the oldest of nine kids and I am trying to raise funds on behalf of my family as a surprise! Johanna is 24 and the first daughter to be married. She met her fiancé Israel Anderson in California when they were babies. When my family moved to Greece and the Andersons to Minnesota, they stayed close friends writing snail-mail. Johanna moved to Minnesota for college, while Israel studied in California. Johanna then moved to Greece to fulfill her long-life dream of working with women who have been sex-trafficked. After working in Thailand she moved back to MN where Israel was also living. Israel proposed last week! Now my family will be reuniting for the first time all together in four years. It costs a lot to buy plane tickets from Crete, Greece to Minneapolis, Minnesota where the wedding will take place this summer. With your support we can make this happen and this will truly be Our Big Fat Greek-Norwegian Wedding! Here's a twist: they are also packing up their whole life of being in Greece for 10 years and moving to MN! They are buying their first house! If we are blessed with more than the goal amount, the extra will help to start life here and set up house. Thanks for taking the time to check out this page! I trust that God will supply all of our needs! An adventure is yet to come. Thanks for taking the time to check out this page!
