Recently we submitted a large financial request to a local financial firm to partner with us for our Mission Trip to Toledo 2008 [big thanks and WTG!!! to Stacy for her help and expertise]. Because they cannot directly support a church, we wrote the proposal on behalf of the Aurora House calling it “Haven of Hope.” Click the graphic for a link to find out what the proposal says. Read on to hear the exciting response we received from it. And keep MTTT2008 in your prayers!!! James 4:2 says "You do not have, because you do not ask God!"

On behalf of the BLANK committee, I am pleased to inform you that the charity that you have nominated has been selected as a finalist for next year's event. Our committee will be making final selections at our next meeting on Thursday, October 11th. As a finalist, we have decided that the mission of your charity merits further consideration. In order for our committee to make a final decison, we are asking that you provide us with some additional information. Please send me a brief explanation of what a $10,000 - $20,000 check would mean to the organization. Please be specific as to the purpose of the funding, the type of impact it would mean to the organization and the lives it would touch. While I hope you share our excitement that your charity has been selected as a finalist. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
