Help move Erin back to the USA

Hello friend! As many of you have heard the time for me to leave South Africa is at hand. I have been praying about this for some time and through much prayer and process I do feel it is time to move home. As my parents are getting older I am wanting to be closer to them and provide support when it is needed. We are also hoping to buy a home together, as they currently rent, so they have a place that is theirs and it will also be an investment for my future. 
What does that mean? Mainly a location change. I will continue my work with YWAM/University of the Nations but will do it from Oregon where my parents are. It will take some time to get networked into the US and the YWAM bases, but I am excited about what doors could open.
As you all know moving can be expensive. I need money for my plane ticket home, shipping items, work that needs to be done on my car to sell it, and all the unknowns. I have managed to get most of my belongings to the US via friends that travel there, but still need to ship them home. I posted that I need $1500, but I truly do not know if that is enough at this point but didn't want to ask for more than I needed. 
I have wonderful monthly supporters, but I did not want to burden them with another financial letter. So I am "casting the net" broader to see if any of you would prayerfully consider giving towards this move home. Please remember no gift is too small! **If you want a tax deduction for a donation please email me and I will send you the details of how you can send your money.
Thank you for reading and considering my request!
Blessings,
Erin
