Francisco here now ;)

Though I won't be able to use them for a few weeks, I figured I'd let all of you know that I ordered ALL of my iPad things on Tuesday and will have everything at home and waiting for me when I return to Chicago next month.

And thanks to my wife's eagle eye for specials and sales, I was able to save almost $300 on the purchase, almost half a rent payment.

So thanks again for your generous help these weeks and I will, of course, be keeping you posted!

More Info

Francisco Herrera is a tireless agitator, educator, and fundraiser for the Gospel. Consequently, as he nears the end of his PhD work a group of friends and supporters are giving back and helping him to raise money to fund the last steps of his PhD work and the first steps of his career. We're seeking $3500 for room/board for dissertation research, $2000 for an iPad Pro with all the fixings (current laptop is dying), and $500 to pay Fundly's fees ($6k total). He's given so much of himself to so many of us and has been a steady source of inspiration and challenge to so many and now is a time we all can show our appreciation for all that he has done and continues to do. 

So please, give $30, $60, $100 to #FundTheAgitator?

OTHER WAYS TO GIVE

STRETCH GOALS:

To help supplement Francisco's income in 2023, our first stretch goal is for a $500 monthly stipend to help towards bills. Add Fundly's fees ($350) and this makes our next goal $12,350. 

Please give and spread the word!

FULL STORY

Since 2015 Francisco Herrera has been a Christian agitator and educator of national scope - first in his denomination, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and increasingly in dynamic ecumenical partnerships that span the US. In the final steps of his PhD program in World Christianity and Global Mission at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, we're looking for people to help gather funds to help him not only finish his PhD work, but also to pay for things that will help him in the first steps of his career, including...

...an iPad Pro to help with his writing and research

...the living expenses for his current work in Trenton, NJ.

...writing retreats, trainings and certifications, etc... that will help him find a job once he graduates.

So please, help us raise to #FundTheAgitator and give, share this link, and ask your friends to contribute!

Update #1

We did it, friends! A new iPad and will soon be on it's way (we'll let you know when it's purchased) and Francisco can now reserve his AirBnB for his work in Trenton in February and beyond. Thanks to you.

Now we're moving on to stretch goal one, $6k to help Francisco pay bills all throughout 2023 as he's continuing his dissertation work. So please say prayers for us as we continue working and, as always, feel free to share this page and invite friends to give :)
