You can help!

So, for those of you who haven't noticed, I have put ads on my blog; my idea is that I could use the money that I get for having them on my blog to go towards what I need to pay for my missions trip to India. I tried not to get too many on my blog or ones that were shady :) Anyway, one way that you can help raise money for my trip this way is by checking my blog frequently; also, if any of the ads are something you would even like to look at because you are interested in click on them (because there's more money to be made by clicking the ads). I just thought I would use my blog for something to help raise money for my trip since I do have one because fundraising has been very difficult this year. Also, I could really use some help coming up with businesses who would be up for giving taxable donations to fundraise my trip (or even the team as a whole). If you have any ideas, please let me know!!! Well, working hard and focusing on the Lord. Love & shalom to you all :)
And again, here is my support letter:

Hi friends & family,

I have the exciting opportunity to share with you about my returning to India on another mission’s trip with ROCKHARBOR church! I first want to thank you so much for supporting my trip toIndia in March; this December I have the chance to help lead a team of 33 ROCKHARBOR members going to Andhra Pradesh, India this December. The first trip to India was truly memorable and we were able to accomplish great things. It was such a blessing to be able to interact with the people on staff at Harvest India as well as help build relationships with people in remote villagesl we were able to supply them with food, clean water and share our faith with them and that we want to give because we have been given so much. It was also eye opening because I saw first hand the cast system as well as the poverty and great need in the country, which Harvest India is trying to make strives to improve. Now I have the unique privilege of helping lead a trip.

Our team will be traveling from December 26th to January 9th. During our trip we will be: helping provide villages with wells for pure drinking water, giving food and medical aid to the poor and those considered untouchable, aiding the pastors in evangelist events to reach many villages with the hope of the Gospel and also giving support and hope for a better life to a local orphanage Rockharbor sponsors.

This trip we also have the unique opportunity to help with flood relief efforts Harvest India has been leading because of the devastating floods that have hit southern India.

Our first and most important support needed is prayer. We are asking for prayer:

· For our team safety while traveling, and during our time in India

· That we are spiritually prepared for any spiritual battles that may be encountered

· That we may share the Gospel boldly & with the love that Our Savior Jesus has shown us

· For unity, support, flexibility and compassion within our team

· That people we meet will have hearts prepared to receive Jesus as their Lord & Savior, and One True God

· That all the team members will be able to raise the financial support necessary to go

· That the pastors, church planters and people of India will be encouraged andstrengthened as followers of Christ.

Secondly, there is a need for financial support if you feel called to also participate financially. I have committed to raise $3,500. If you would like to make a donation to my trip or know of others who would,

please make donations payable to ROCKHARBOR Church. Please do not write my name or the country anywhere on the check. You may use the included returnenvelope, which is already addressed and indicates that the donation is for my trip. If you use your own envelope, please mail it to: ROCKHARBOR Church

Attn: India/Brittani Ehrhorn

3080 Airway Ave. Suite A

Please note that donations are tax deductible and are non refundable. All donations will go towards theoverall cost of the trip, and any excess funds will first help to cover the team’s costs and secondly will be gifted to the ministry we are going to serve.

Thank you all very much for your support of this ministry; I am so blessed for you to be apart of it alongside me.
