I come to you all with a request. It’s not a request that is easy for me, but I’m learning that life isn’t always comfortable, and I know I’ll be learning that even more over the coming months. My trip is approaching much faster than it feels like it should be, with many mixed emotions attached. In less than three weeks I will have my life in North Carolina packed up – bound for Canada and all the snow it has to offer. These next few weeks will be some of the most stressful (thanks to my avoidance of anything packing related) and busy weeks of my life. These times come with great anticipation and unmatched excitement.
While I have a lot to mentally prepare for in the next few weeks, there are also a lot of physical things that are involved with the move. From flights, to visas, to everyday items that I need to bring with me, the numbers add up. While I will be working for Sole Hope while I’m on the ground, there are many things i need before I leave the States. If you are at all able to support me financially through this time, that would take one thing off of my “daily worry list”.
If you are not able to give financially, prayer is not only greatly accepted, but needed through this challenging, but exciting time. Below I have listed more information about how you can donate. I would love to connect with you if you have any questions about my trip, what this money would specifically be going towards, or anything else. Please email me or call me any time and I would be more than happy to chat.
For those living in the States:
All checks can be made payable to Sole Hope (which makes them tax deductible) and please include a note that it is to go towards “Lis Steckle”. Please don’t write my name on the memo line (for accounting purposes), but please either write a note to include with the check or attach a sticky note with my name on the check itself. Donations can also be made online here. Go to the second option on the page titled “Make a One Time Donation” and include my name in the notes section.
Checks can be mailed to:
PO Box 1492
Asheville, NC 28802
For those living in the Great White North (aka Canada):
Please make all checks made payable to Elisabeth Steckle (unfortunately, with Sole Hope being an American non-profit, the donations are not tax deductible). You can also make a donation through paypal and can be sent to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mail checks to:
46 Tara Cres
Kitchener, ON N2E 3K9
I have also set up an Amazon Wish List that I will keep updated until my move, as well as while I’m living in Uganda as I find things that are needed. You can access that list here.
Whether you are able to partner with me financially, or through prayer, know that it means more to me than words can describe. Knowing that I have so many people behind me through this entire process makes me feel more confident in my decision. This move wouldn’t be nearly as seamless (or possible at all) without your support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
One day at a time. One step at a time. You all keep me moving.
