UPDATE: 3.7.18 We would like to praise the Lord and extend a heart-felt “Thank You” to all of you who have loved and given to our sweet friend, Carol Anne and her son Asa. Between the GoFundMe campaign and gifts sent directly to her by mail, we are happy to report that 93% of our goal was met. Part of the original goal was to set aside money for a college fund for Asa. We are also praising the Lord that a group of people came together to start a trust that helped accomplish what we were hoping for! This will help tremendously as Carol Anne provides for Asa.
All said and done, God has proven His love and care for Carol Anne through the kindness and generosity of His people. So thank you for all who had a part in this. If you would still like to give, feel free to message us for more information!
Thank you so much for loving Carol Anne and Asa through your kind and generous giving these past two months. We are happy to report that our goal of $125,000 is currently just under 85% complete. Praise the Lord! The GoFundMe campaign will be ending on March 1 and we are still hoping to raise the remaining funds. Many have given to Carol Anne through this campaign as well as sending gifts directly to her.
Obviously, if you still feel lead to give after March 1, you can send your gift directly to Carol Anne. (Feel free to message us for her address.) There are still needs that are needing to be met! Would you be willing to pray and see if God would have you help meet them?
Carol Anne and Asa have joined our ministry for the past four weeks, and we are so thankful for their presence and ministry with our team. She is currently heading home for a couple weeks and then she and Asa will be rejoining our ministry for the remainder of the semester. There are many questions and decisions to be made for the future. Please continue to pray for wisdom in these, as well as daily grace as she and Asa walk the path that God has lovingly ordained for them. He is God...and He is good.
UPDATE (1.15.18): We would like to extend a heart-felt "thank you" to all of you who have helped raise support for Carol Anne and Asa Clemons. Many have given through this GoFundMe campaign and others have sent a card with a gift directly to Carol Anne. We are very happy to report that right at $90,000 has come in altogether. You can continue to give towards them on this GoFundMe campaign or by sending your gift directly to her. We will have this campaign open until the end of February. Thank you again for your love and support for our dear friend. God is showing His love to her through the love of His people.
Our dear friend and Gospel partner, Matthew Clemons, went home to be with his Savior on December 17, 2017. He is leaving behind his precious wife, Carol Anne, and their one year old son, Asa. He faithfully served and influenced many during his life...and in his death. We are praying that God would be glorified!
Matt and Carol Anne have traveled with Coffey Ministries ever since they were married in 2015. They have lived by faith, trusting God to meet their needs, week in and week out, and God has always proven Himself faithful to take care of them. Now Carol Anne is starting over and is in need of our help.
In light of the unforeseen circumstances and unplanned expenses, here are a few needs that your gifts of love would go towards: --First and foremost, your gifts will go to cover the funeral costs. --Carol Anne is in need of a replacement vehicle. --We would like to provide a year's worth of salary for Carol Anne. --There are also some remaining bills that need to be taken care of. --We would also like to see $25,000 go towards Asa's future education.
I know many have asked how they can help and have been waiting for an official means by which to give. This Go Fund Me is being set up by Aaron Coffey with full permission from both Matt and Carol Anne's parents.
