Rummage sale success!

We had such an amazing turnout for our Mission Rummage Sale!  It was held Aug. 13, 14, and 15.  People kept dropping items off for the sale…even some neighbors of Patty (our friend who hosted the sale at her home) saw all the excitement and brought things from their homes to add to the sale.  There was even a couple picnic-ing at the park across the street who stopped by to see what was going on.  Patty told them what the purpose of the rummage sale was and they told her…”We have some items that we were going to drop off to the Salvation Army, but, we’ll just donate to you!”

On Friday afternoon, I received a call from Pastor Nick from Prayer House Assembly (in Kenosha) who asked if he could drop off a van full of items.  At about 5:00pm, he and Pastor Chad brought a van that was chocked FULL of things to donate.  Amazing!  After they unloaded the van, it was like a brand new sale was just beginning….plenty of ‘eye candy’ for people driving by!

The Lord blessed us with fabulous weather, pretty much non-stop traffic for the three days, about $1,500.00 in sales and enough items left for us to have another sale!

We’ll be sending out info about when the next rummage sale will be and if you have anything that you’d like to donate to our mission, please let us know!
