The backstory: Laura Parsons Lytle, Founder of Beauty for Ashes All Nation, is a missionary to Uganda. After her last two month trip in the summer of 2017; she returned to the most difficult year of her life. She was hospitalized 4 times, for an infection I got during that trip; and almost died. Just over a month later, her wonderful mother, (who was also one of the board members for this ministry) passed away suddenly. A month later, someone ran through two red lights, (causing a 5 car accident) totaling Laura’s car. The accident caused major injuries; including both wrists being severely sprained, her entire back sprained, severe whiplash, intense seatbelt injuries (including a displaced fractured collarbone) and a SEVERE CONCUSSION from hitting her head in both impacts. 
          Several months later, her “Uncle Tom” (who was also a board member), passed away, and so did a couple of close friends. With the loss of two board members, and such severe injuries; Laura has been without an income for over a year. We are having to start the ministry all over again from the ground up, since we were never able to finish filing for our non-profit status (due to losing the Board Members) No benefits, no salary, nothing. 

Now for the GOOD NEWS!!! Despite a few lingering issues from the car accident (a couple of which may require surgery) Laura is finally getting back on her feet physically; and she is finally planning a return trip to Uganda! Beauty For Ashes All Nations now has three amazing new Board Members, and we currently in the process of raising "seed funds", so that we can file our 501c3 for non-profit status; and continue to fund our projects in Uganda. Once we have filed for 501c3, all donations going forward will be tax deductible! So the first $1500 will go toward filing for our non-profit status. The rest of the amount we’re raising will pay for Laura’s two month trip to Uganda July-Sept 2019! 

We believe that God will meet every single one of these needs, according to His riches in glory! And we are praying that He abundantly blesses everyone who gives!!!!
