Thanks to recent Brigada friends who have sent $25, $100, $25, $153, $30, $100, $100. These gifts total $533 and raise our 2012 gift total to $14,499, just $2620 short of our 2012 budget needs. We have one more week to receive goals for 2012. If you or your church would like to pitch in, we’d be extremely grateful. But either way, after next edition, we keep quiet about money until November 2013. We give praise to God for the way people have pitched in. We ALMOST have enough, finally, to engage an assistant to help us part-time. Maybe then (beginning in March?), we can finally stop running behind all the time! Again, thank you!!! If you’d like to donate during this final week for 2012, just navigate to …

then click “Donate” in the upper right and follow the instructions. By the way, you don’t need a PayPal account to give. If you reach a screen asking for your PayPal I.D., look on the left side of the screen, about halfway down, and find the prompt which says, “Continue without a PayPal Account.” If you’d rather send an old-fashioned check, just make it payable to Team Expansion and send it to:

Team Expansion (Brigada),
13711 Willow Reed Dr.,
Louisville, KY 40299

(And by the way, Team Expansion is a 501(c)3 incorporation so for USA citizens, your checks made out to Team Expansion are tax-deductible.)
