Get Kenny Home for Christmas

Meet Kenny Hall.  Kenny is a Christian missionary in South Africa with the organization Youth With a Mission.  He has been working throughout the African and Asian continents for several years.  Every once in awhile Kenny gets the opportunity to come home.  Due to his extremely limited budget, he is usually forced to fly standby.  
 Currently Kenny is on his 9th continuous day of waiting in the Johannesberg Airport for a place on a standby flight.  Everyday he comes closer to the reality that he will not get to come home to Northern California for Christmas.  He has not seen his family in about 18 months. If he is not on a plane in the next day or two, he will probably have to wait another 6-8 months to make it home.
I believe we can get Kenny home.  This man has impressed many of us with his devotion to the Gospel and his willingness to go anywhere in faith.  He is a fast and true friend who loves Jesus dearly and longs to make Him famous.  I know him personally and he doesn't love the fundraising part of mission work, so he lives on a shoestring budget constantly.  I think it is a good time to show Kenny how much we love him and appreciate his mission.  
We can pull together in the next 24-36 hours  to get him home for the holidays.  We have found a flight for around $1200 plus taxes.  I think this is a great opportunity to contribute to our own Christmas miracle.
I believe we can make it happen.  Let's get Kenny home.  If we do make it and surpass the goal of getting him home (or his standby flight pans out), all money in this account will be given to Kenny's general mission fund, allowing him to continue to do the work of the Lord around the world.
