Hi, its been a while since my last blog post, so I have a lot to tell you!!! The date of our departure is very quickly approaching and I am very excited.
First of all, our gift wrapping services will start on Tuesday, December 1st. You can bring your presents to us or we can arrange to meet somewhere, and we will wrap them. We are not specifying a price, however, we do ask that a donation be made for the wrapping. We have all of the paper and supplies. But if you have special paper you want us to use, you can bring it and we’ll use it!
Secondly, we are having a yard sale THIS SATURDAY, December 5th. Come and find some Christmas presents for everyone on your list this year. I will have a table set up for you to buy canvasses and ornaments and another set up for gift wrapping. The Yard Sale will be on our street- Rain Forest St in Raintree. We have 3 families participating who are also trying to raise money for special trips! There will be something for everyone!
Thirdly, we wanted to make sure that you knew how to give online. (Since some of you are not local and might not be able to buy a canvas or come to the yard sale.)

Next, we have a fun night planned for all you girls! On Saturday, December 12th we will be having a Premier Jewelry Party. Part of the proceeds will help send me and my mom to Uganda. If you can’t make it you can order jewelry online at charitychapman.mypremierdesigns.com.
Lastly, I would like to give a HUGE thank you to Church of Our Savior in Jacksonville. Their missions committee has decided to give $1,000 to my Uganda trip. I am so grateful for their generous heart towards my trip, we are half way there!!!
