June's pilgrimage to Medjugorje


My name is Margaret Palladino and I truly feel I am on a mission to help my friend, June.

I am raising funds so that my friend June can go on pilgrimage to Medjugorje (in Bosnia-Hercegovina)

The money will be used for her round trip ticket, hotel stay and meals.

This means so much to me because I feel called to assist June to journey to Medjugorge.

Please allow me to explain.
This is a two part calling.

1) While on an intensive Catholic Christian ACTS Retreat, I clearly heard the words, "Get June to Medjugorge." Honestly, the thought surprised me but I did not pay much attention to the thought until later. At the end of the retreat, as we were awaiting transportation home, I realized that I had not spoken to one woman (out of the forty) and so I introduced myself. 
Her name was Mary. (!)
She volunteered at the Medjugorje Center. (!)
With God there are no coincidences!!!

2) Sometime later, a wooden rosary came into my possession.  I felt strongly that I was to give it to June and I did so.  She was happy to receive it as she had been praying for just such a rosary.
Later she approached me eagerly and she showed me that it was marked "Medjugorge." 
I was surprised.  I had not seen noticed.  She had shown the rosary to someone else and they revealed that there was a hidden compartment within the rosary.  This person opened it and showed her that it was filled with dirt from Medjugorje!
Again, with God there are no coincidences!!!

A true miracle! After praying on this rosary, the metal links turned gold. To God be the Glory!

I need to get June to Medjugorge. Please help me!

I will be so very thankful if you help me complete my mission! This mission needs to be accomplished.  I pray you are moved to donate any amount.  Every little bit helps, truly.

I thank you in advance! 
God bless you!
In God's love,
           Margaret Palladino

A little bit about Medjugorje:
Medjugorje ("between the hills") has become well known in Bosnia-Hercegovina, and the world, because of six young people who claim to have seen visions of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Beginning on June 24, 1981, the Blessed Mother appeared to, and later told the visionaries, God sent her to our world to help us convert our hearts and lives back to Him.
Our Lady's call is one of Peace, Love, Faith, Conversion, Prayer, and Fasting.
We are each challenged to answer Our Lady's call to change our lives, and hearts back to God.
