Fundraising Update

Dear Friends,

I have been enormously encouraged by the generosity and support of so many people, may of whom I've never met before, who have sent me notes of encouragement and financial support to help me move closer to my goal of being debt free by this Wednesday, July 16th.  If my student loans are paid off, I will be free to enter Postulancy with the Carmelite Sisters this year (if you're unfamiliar with the stages of formation, you can read more here.)

As of today (Saturday), I still need an additional $6,000 to pay off all of my student loans in full.  Going forward, I will also need about $5,000 to cover the cost of health insurance during the three year novitiate, as well.

I'm so grateful to each person who has helped me come closer and closer to reaching my goal. I have been paying off my student loans since I graduated in 2008, but when I began Candidacy in August I still had around $24,000 left to pay off. To be so close to being debt free is really an incredible feeling.

More than anything, I am filled with gratitude for what God has done in my life. My conversion story was featured by the Coming Home Network this month. It is amazing to see all that He has done to bring me here, and I am so excited to find out what He has in store for me in the future.

If I don't reach my goal by Wednesday, I will have another year in Candidacy to pay off my debt and to continue growing in my faith while living here in Los Angeles with the Sisters. So, whether I enter Postulancy or continue on for one more year in Candidacy, I know that I will be where God wants me, and that is all that matters.

If you are able to help me with a donation, please consider giving - even small gifts add up. And if you are able to give a larger gift, you will be my hero.

May God bless you! I am praying for you all!

In Christ,
