Wednesday Whereabouts: Support the Discovery School in Burundi!

My sister (#3 of the 6) is traveling to Burundi this summer on a mission trip.  She'll then be getting married a month after she returns.  Who can say they've done something like that, right before their wedding?  Talk about a lot on your plate, but of course, all for a wonderful cause!

And then I heard the voice of the Lord say, "Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?" I spoke up. "I'll go. Send me!"  ~ Isaiah 6:8

Her Burundi team is having an event this Sunday, March 25th at the Comedy Zone in Uptown Charlotte. There is also a silent auction, with lots of different items like David Yurman and other jewelry, vacations, spa packages, boutique shoe packages, etc. The entire $20 from your ticket purchase goes to support my sister's team and the Discovery School in Bujumbura, Burundi.  They have been working with 107.9 to put on this event...
The Discovery School
Located in Bujumbura, Burundi
What is it?  a Private Christian Pre-School & Elementary School, founded in 2008.

If you're in town, hope y'all can make it!

Happy Wednesday!
