Generous Authors!

Yesterday, our church had a very successful silent auction to raise funds for the Missions Committee for both local and overseas projects. I put out a call on my writer loops, and many generous authors send me autographed books. I wanted to put up a public thank you for their donations! I had enough books to put together three baskets for the auction.

As mission chair at WFUMC, I would like to add my thanks to those of Missy. My only regret is that I was too busy to make winning bids on the books. :-) Thanks to generous donations, we were able to raise $2600 to help fund 5 different mission teams. May God bless you all as you have blessed others.

Joann, thanks for all your hard work! I'm excited to hear the total for the day.

For those who don't know Joann, she's a big reader and supporter of authors!
