48 hours & off to Iraq/Kurdistan & Lebanon …

Friend …
      

Struggling on this update, as to how to best communicate.  I don’t want “drama”.  Yet do want to communicate in trueness, difficult realities.

Mike and I leave in about 48 hours(Thursday) for Lebanon and Iraq/Kurdistan.

Let’s start with some very good news !
$ 20,000   has already come in for Iraq/Kurdistan refugees, relief, training, development, TCD!  So very grateful !
$ 5,000   has already come in to cover all my trip expenses and some overages for development!  So very grateful !
$ 4,000 has already come in to cover my colleague, Mike Park’s travel expenses and relief needs!  So very grateful … and he is also !  🙂
$ 1,250 … of the $ 2,000 – $ 5,000 needed/desired for the refugees in Lebanon, has come in.  So very grateful !

If your heart so moves you to help with this, please let me know, and I can help you best to channel those funds, quickly.  So grateful (sensing some repetition here) for your urgent considerations in this !

Now for some difficult communications.
Refugees from Syria are pouring into Turkey, and there remains a flow into Iraq.
It’s been an awful cold winter in this region of Iraq and Lebanon.  Refugees are in need of basic sustenance food items and heating fuel.  One of the above photos shows our staff there, in the Karakosh/Ninivah region of Iraq, getting fuel for refugees there.  Another photo showing is from a news source, where people/families, have literally frozen to death.  I drew the line at not showing those more explicit photos.

Our agenda remains the same as in our last update.  Already, we’re having to adjust the schedule to accommodate additional needs and added collaborative times with others in the area.

In brief, we are planning to:

  • Relief Distribution to refugees in the Bardarach(Barda rash)

  • Meet diplomats working to protect minorities

  • TCD follow-up training – Yazidi refugees and Kurdish leaders

  • Relief Distribution to Yazidi refugees around Sulaimaniyah, Kurdistan

  • ELD – Entrepreneur Leadership Development vision casting

  • Meet with many leaders currently embracing our TCD/Development Model

  • Plan our next trips there in 2020

  • Key players who seek to initiate new potential K-12 school

Hoping you’ll receive another of these updates, fresh from the field, soon

Thanking you much for your kindness in reading this and your listening heart !

    I’m thankful the funds have come in and you two will be leaving soon to take hope to those in need. So sorry to learn about the cold and hurting circumstances that you mentioned. My heart goes out to them. May your trip be the blessing they need and help to lessen their pain. I will certainly be praying for this trip and what it could mean to the people you come in contact with.
