NEW Blog Launches: "Writer to Reader" ~ Where writers & readers connect by Peg Phifer

I am proud to announce a new blog recently started by Peg Phifer for both writers and readers. So, if you fit into either or both categories (doesn't everyone?) go to http://www.writer-to-reader.com Peg is setting up a schedule that will include postings of book reviews, contests, and interviews and more. I especially like the "Road Signs" segments which remind me of the old Burma Shave signs, except they all are pithy sayings about reading or writing. This site is a real treat. My only problem is that I could visit it for hours and not get any writing done! LOL I hope you'll mosey on over today.

Prayer requested for mission trip to Ukraine, Mar. 19-31, 2009

Dear Family & Friends, (I am interrupting my regular blog about books to share this information with you, my readers. And I plan to share more info and pictures when I return from this trip.)

Greetings! It is my prayer that this letter finds you and your family doing well. I am writing to make you aware of my intentions to participate in a mission trip to the Ukraine in March, 2009. Our team is planning to depart on March 19 to work in Donetsk, the second largest city in Ukraine, for about twelve days. During that time we plan to conduct a day camp with Bible lessons, crafts and drama at one of the local orphanages and visit several churches in the area.

To say I am excited about the opportunity to be a part of this mission team and serve the needs of the Ukrainian people is an understatement. I hope that you can share my excitement and join me in this ministry. I am asking for your support and prayers for this mission trip.

The trip is being funded entirely through donations and by those going on the mission trip. The trip itinerary and activities will be under the direction of Goin’ Fishing Ministries which is based in Louisville, Kentucky. My goal is to raise at least $2000 for this project. The money collected will be used to pay for expenses related to team travel and ministry to Ukrainians, especially orphans.

If you are able to assist financially, please mail a check to “Goin’ Fishing Ministries” (P O BOX 2474, Clarksville, IN 47131) along with a copy of this letter. On the memo line of the check, you may designate: “Ukraine trips” Do not include my name on the check if you intend for your gift to be tax deductible. You may attach a note or write my name on the flap of the envelope if you wish your support to be credited for my part of the trip expenses. On behalf of everyone taking this trip, I thank you for your prayers and financial support. I hope you will copy and post this letter with its heading on your frig as a reminder to cover us in prayer. May God bless you richly! Rose McCauley
