Jenni -Mt Hermon Writer Conference

$1,180 of $1,350 goal

Raised by 18 people in 13 months
Jenni Saake  RENO, NV
I finally got to attend my first Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference in 2016 (after over a dozen years of waiting and praying), thanks to much miraculous provision by God who used many of you as well! It was an amazing experience!  My Mt. Hermon Buddy and I would really like to go again in 2017, but need about $1,700 each to go for the full week (or a little over $1,300 each to just attend part). Our goal is to have these funds by Januarary, 2017.

I have update my fundraising goal to account for the nearly $1,000 already donated for last year's expenses (I couldn't figure out how to 0 that out, so the first part raised here was already spent for last year), travel expenses and GoFundMe fees.

Thank you for allowing God to help you join in this amazing blessing! Your prayers are invaluable and if God both gives you desire and ability to help with our financial goal, this would be a huge blessing too!

As you can see, I have dropped my goal from $4500 to $1,525. This new amount includes the funds I already spent for last year's tuition.
This remaining $395 request will completely cover the remaining cost of this year's tuition need, account for Go-Fund_Me fees deduction, and provide some funds for meals and travel.
I have dropped my funds request by $3,000 because my travel buddy and I each have received enough outside funds that I am under $400 from meeting my need. My conference buddy is still awaiting God's final provision too, but I'm taking this funds request down to just my need and if extra comes in, I can share with her. :)
So, bottom line, our registrations are in, our deposits are paid, and we have until early March to make final conference payments.
Meanwhile, the final draft of my book is 1/4 completed. After 5 years of struggling to write with brain injury, I started fresh and scrapped the old manuscript. God has blessed and allowed me to get through 1/4 of the rewrite since mid November, even with the holidays and travel happening during this season.
Thank you so much for your love, financial support, and especially your prayers!

Thank you to the two folks who have blessed me with gifts toward this goal in the past week and a half! I'm about 1/4 of the way to my goal for my co-author and ride) and I to attend Mt. Hermon Christian Writers Conference, however this goal is comprised of BOTH the 2016 (over $900 of these funds already spent) and upcoming 2017 conference expenses. Here's more conference info for anyone curious - http://writers.mounthermon.org/

The $4,500 requested here includes last year's conference, as I couldn't zero out previous fundraising, so nearly $1,000 of this was already spent a year ago! (I didn't know to request a cushion to account for fees that we be deducted by GoFundMe last year, thus last year's requested amount was lower.)

Of the additional $3,500 requested, I now have $200, less GoFundMe's cut. If I can raise the rest by the end of January, there is a $75 per person discount for registering before Feb. 1, 2017, so that would drop the need by another $150. Basically, the two of us could attend the entire conference if we can raise a little over $3,000 more before the end of January. If we only go for the main conference and not the extra training, this cuts about $400 off each pricetag.

Thank you for your prayers and support!
