Thanks to the overwhelmingly awesome response to the Daisy Love shirt, we were able to send $22,000+ to the Daisy Merrick Trust. On behalf of The Mission and us, MAHALO NUI LOA! 
“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.” -Ephesians 3:20-21 (NLT)

We are in awe of the love of Jesus toward Daisy and the Merrick family through the overwhelming generosity and support of so many of you. At the end of September 2012, we not only met but exceeded our fundraising goal for Daisy’s care and medical treatment. Praise God! We appreciate each one of you and every gift both big and small.

I had the pleasure of spending a week in Chicago for Group's KIDMIN12 conference. A few of us from The Mission were able to get inspired and stoked up to serve in children's ministry. Here are some photos from the trip:
•Visited the Art Institute of Chicago. Butch admiring the original American Gothic piece & a rather large Monet.
Gungor performing at KIDMIN12. They put on an amazing show and are extremely talented musicians.
•Spent hours walking around downtown Chicago. Butch at Cloud Gate ("The Bean") in Millennium Park.
•Buckingham Fountain and authentic Chicago grinds from Al's.
•Toured Soldier Field, home of the Bears. View from the Skyline Suite.
•Got to catch a John Mark McMillan and Jude Moses show at Soul City Church

Cheers, from the Windy City!
