Happy August from Love Lights the Way!

A lot of exciting stuff has been happening this summer with LLTW! We visited three churches for the first time this summer: Church of Christ in Roxbury, Church of Christ in Milton and First Evangelical Covenant Church in Lincoln, NE. Thank you for allowing us to share our mission and cause with you! Thanks to all of the churches who have supported our cause over the years. If your church would be interested in having us speak, or would like to learn more about our cause, please contact Laurie at LScharp@lovelightstheway.org. We LOVE spreading the word about our mission and finding more people who care about this cause!

Mark your calendars! Sunday Sept. 28th, 6:00-9:30 pm, we are having our biggest fundraiser of the year! Come hear wonderful music and check out our awesome items up for auction. Tickets are 10$ each and can be purchased right now. Ask a board member how you can get your tickets or contact info@lovelightstheway.org and we'll make sure you get some! If you'd like to help sell some, we'd love that too!
If your company or a company you know would be willing to donate goods or services for our auction, please let us know as soon as possible! Contact Ron Burnett at RBurnett@lovelightstheway.org or 401.636.2227.
Our fundraising status is currently at approximately $34,000! Thank you so much to everyone who has donated this year! Much of these funds have come from church congregations who have allowed us to share with them our mission and taken collections for our cause, from our board members (who each donate 100$ every month!), from friends of LLTW who donate each month and one-time donations sent as checks or done through our website. To every single person who has donated, THANK YOU!!
To learn more about donating, or to donate online, check out our online giving page: www.lovelightstheway.org/donate. We can only do our work with help from people like you!
Extra special thanks to our 19 AP donors who contribute 50$ every month! If you wish to join this awesome, supportive group, learn more about the Advisory Panel here. You can set up to have the 50$ automatically withdrawn from you bank account using our online giving system or our donor form. Email Laurie at LScharp@lovelightstheway.org if you have more questions about the AP.
If you are interested in coming on our next trip (currently hoping for Dec. 7-21, but may be postponed) please email Jim White at JWhite@lovelightstheway.org. We will be planting 2 acres of cassava, starting to build a church community and beginning construction on our K-6 school. We could use your help! You will need to pay for your own travel to Monrovia, Liberia but food and housing in Liberia will be covered by LLTW.
The deadly Ebola virus, as you may have heard, is a very big problem in West Africa right now, including Liberia. The possibility of our trip being postponed is quite real. This will be discussed at our upcoming board meeting on August 18th. Although our current trip may be postponed, Lighthouse Village is a lifelong commitment for many of us. We will continue to fund raise and continue to plan for the construction of our K-6 school and will travel when it is safe to do so. To learn more about the Ebola outbreak, check out this article and video from CNN: http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/27/world/ebola-virus-explainer/ Please keep Liberia, West Africa and the eradication of the Ebola virus in your prayers. 
Love Lights the Way needs a shirt and we want one of you to design it! We are looking for a T-shirt that will help spread the word about what we are doing and bring more awareness to our cause. Send in your designs by August 15th to LScharp@lovelightstheway.org. Learn more about the contest here: T-Shirt Contest.

Thanks from everyone at Love Lights the Way
for your support and prayers!
