Purpose:

______________________________

Did you know there are women tucked into corners all across the globe who are fighting, oh so valiantly, to serve and love in their foreign homes?  But they are craving, with deep hunger, for other women they can laugh and cry with, other women who can whisper into the dark days and say, “I know, I know.

These women need an online space to gather and connect with one another.  They need a place where they can be mentored through the experiences of those who have learned to thrive in this kind of life.

Velvet Ashes is this place. 

It’s an online community to encourage and breathe hope into the lives of women serving overseas. 

So they can live out the purpose they’ve been called to.

And find the fullness of life.

Funds Cover:

The Challenge:

______________________________

Would you like to help this dream grow real?

Would you like to build this place with us? 

For these ladies?

Because we all know how hard it is to journey with a wilted soul.

Meeting our Website Launch Fund goal by August 9 will enable us to have VelvetAshes.com up and running this fall! 

 

“What Does the Name Mean?”

______________________________

 We are named for the Velvet Ash tree.  We resonate with this tree because it grows in the seeming emptiness of the desert, yet it is in the desert that this tree thrives, its roots reaching deep.

Last Day!

Today is the last day! We're so close! We've adjusted the final goal amount to account for the money that has been given directly rather than through Fundly. That leaves us with $1,505 to raise in our last day! Thank you to all who have given so generously. For those of you waiting to give at the end, today's your day!
