Mission trip our daughter inspired

My husband (David) and I (Katie) have 4 AWESOME kids (3 girls and a boy), one of whom has been doing mission work in South Africa for over a year (in addition to 2 previous short-term trips).  The organization she's with works to rebuild families ravaged by poverty and the AIDS epidemic in South Africa.

Thanks to the internet, we get to communicate with her regularly and hear about everything she's doing there, but it seems very far away.  We'd like to join her for almost 3 weeks this summer so we can relate a little more closely with her and the work she's doing.

The campaign goal will cover our airfare plus some (very frugal) living expenses while there.  Your support would help us experience what God is doing in South Africa, and build a closer bond with the daughter we miss so much.   Our gratefulness would last the rest of our lives.  Thank you!
