Please consider making a donation to help the Andrew Jones family.

As you may remember, we talked with Andrew in episode 2.5.

And the entire Jones family has been an inspiration to many as they’ve worked diligently to bring heaven to earth to people around the world.

Andrew’s wife, Debra (or Mum Jones to many) passed away earlier this week and as the latest update we’ve heard, Andrew is still recovering from illness in the hospital.

From Facebook:

It is with great sadness and sorrow that I announce the passing of our beloved sister and fellow warrior Debra Jones. She died June 15th of kidney failure in Gambi Hospital in Bahar Dar, Ethiopia. She was on a journey loving people in ways that always stretched our capacity and blew our imagination.

The funds gathered will be a love offering to help them with travel costs, funeral accommodations, food, and time together.

Urgent Appeal: 5 Ways To Help the Jones Family
Thanks everyone for your suggestions on getting supported and on our way to the next 25 countries. So much opportunity. . . so little funds. You know how it is, especially in this financial crunch when things have dried up. We have just lost a huge amount of support and need to make it up really quickly. In fact, we really need a chunk this week for visas, ferry tickets and diesel so that we can continue.
Special thanks to Shannon Hopkins of Matryoshka Haus, who has generously allowed us to use her 501c3 account at Givezooks. We have launched a campaign called “Friends of the Jones Family” which we think will be a good short term solution.

5 WAYS YOU CAN HELP

2. Tell your church. They might have a mission fund that is looking for more opportunities. They can contact me directly about having me speak at their church to share what God is doing around Europe and beyond.

3. Join our email list and receive the top secret updates on our journey, adventures, prayer requests, and updates. Request it and I will put you on the list. This is the best way to see exactly what we are up to and where your funds are going.

help Tall Skinny Kiwi share God’s story

andrew jones serves up some meat

as we heard in episode 2.5, tall skinny kiwi is getting ready to head out on a cross-European adventure with his family in the tall skinny kiwi mobile.

the missional tribe is rallying around TSK to help him purchase a new camera, boom mic and other equipment so he can better tell the story of God across Europe on his journeys this year.

Bill Kinnon writes:

At Missional Tribe and elsewhere, we are raising funds to equip the Jones’ family with a great small AVCHD camera, monopod, shotgun mic, handheld mic and mini camera audio mixer. Andrew already has the editing facility on his Mac laptop. The film One Size Fits All, shot with a more expensive but less capable camera than what we are proposing, shows the power of well told stories. We can expect great stories from the Jones’ family, as well.

Helping a friend in need

Got a call from Brad Vanderburg tonight and he informed me that they’ve just about settled on a new lead singer for their band, Shatter Me.

The young man, Donavon, just called Brad to inform him that one of his dear friends, Taylor was in a bad car accident over the weekend and is now in the hospital with severe brain injury.

Brad said things don’t look good for Taylor.

The Vanderburg’s are hoping to pool some money together to help Taylor’s family in this time of crisis. If you’re interested in helping, please click the button below and we’ll get the funds to the Vanderburgs ASAP. (As a note, the donation will likely show Refugee on the PayPal page)

UPDATE :: Talked to Brad this morning, he said Taylor is still in a coma and there’s no evidence of change. He will be stopping by the hospital later this morning to see him and meet with the family.

Thanks in advance!
