To Togo for Hola

I have been encouraged and touched by so many friends that I've decided to take a leap of faith! I am raising funds to meet my sponsor child, Hola. I sponsor her through

She lives in Togo Africa and is 6 years old. Her mother passed away not very long ago and lives with her father, sister, and grandmother.

It has been on my heart to visit her for a long time. This opportunity by doesn't happen often and may never come again for me. She has asked me several times when will I come see her. I never answer that question because I've never had an answer for her. I would like nothing more than to be able to tell her that I will be coming soon. To be honest with you, it scares me A LOT to travel so far away and alone but I know in my heart it is something I have to do.

The trip to Togo is in July 2014. I believe being a year away the funds can be raised with a lot of hard work on my part and giving hearts from everybody else.

I will need about $400 for the initial deposit, by October 2013. (The deposit is non-refundable)
Because its so early, Compassion doesnt have a lot of detail right now but as soon it is provided, I will post it here.

I know if me and Hola are to meet then by God's grace and love and your generosity it will happen.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
In Christ's love,

P.S. If I don't raise enough money to go, the money that is donated will go back to you, donated to Hola and her family, or whatever other charity you'd like. I will work with you to settle back the funds. But, lets think positive! We will raise the money and there will be no need to settle back! :-)
