A Little Help From A Friend

If you’ve been hanging around my blog much in the past week or two, you have probably heard the rumor that I’ll be going on my eighth mission trip in July. I will be joining missionary Rose Boyd (from Operation Teaching Tools) and a team of ten to minister in Sudan. You can read more about this trip here at my friend, Kathy’s site.

It’s probably no surprise that in order to go on this trip, I have to raise my own support, in the amount of $4,050. When my friend, Wendy, learned this she made me an astoundingly generous offer that I’d like to share with you.

Today is the GRAND OPENING of Wendy’s Etsy shop, Wendy Darling, Ltd.


Wendy has made the following offer: If you go to her Etsy shop, place an order, and put my name (“Sarah”) in the comments to the seller, she will send a percentage of that purchase as a donation toward the trip to Sudan.

Don’t I have the most awesome friends?!

So, I encourage you to go check out Wendy’s Etsy shop… And not just because of the trip to Sudan. But because she’s awesome and has a cute shop with cute stuff that you’re just gonna love! Here’s one example:


(The shirt’s for sale. The child is not.)

THANK YOU, Wendy! And thank y’all for your support!

About Sarah Salter


  1. I think this is a tremendous idea. & I’m glad to know that you are not in the business of helping sell children. It eases my mind… 🙂

  2. Oh, I’ve seen her stuff and it’s wonderful! *snort* I’m so modest…

  3. Oh my goodness, Sarah, what a generous blessing from your friend! The word of God says, “A friend loveth at all times,” and you, my dear, are living proof of that.

  4. Hmmm, not sure I could wear any of that…

  5. Sarah Salter says:

    Oh, come on, Chris! Real men are secure enough in themselves to wear pink. (I wouldn’t go for the purple, though…)

  6. You do indeed have an awesome friend.

    Personal fundraising for mission is always a …. mission.

    “But you already raised funds to go there.”
    “Uh, yeah. That was three years ago. I’m going again.”
    “Oh, well… we gave last time.”

    Wishing you well with that.

  7. Sarah Salter says:

    Sharkbait, you are wise beyond your years!

  8. Wait, would she make them for grownups? Oversized grownup?

    And I am willing to make an offer on the kid. She is a cutie! Tell Wendy to think about it!
