The Story

Hello from Kenya!  Alona and I are planning to go to the US in October through New Year and then we will return back to Kenya.  It will be Alona's first time in the US.  I am excited that we will be around for the holidays.   This will be the first time that she is able to meet my family face to face and see where I grew up.  It's also that time again to meet with our churches, supporters, family and friends, as well as share about what God is doing in D.O.O.R. International and our Russian Sign Language Bible Translation.  

Would you help us get home in October?  Would you help us with our round trip flight tickets and  her visa expenses so that she can visit the US with me?  My account with DOOR is lacking in funds, and therefore I must ask for some help buying our tickets.

While we are home, we would love to meet with you.  We will be speaking in various churches, home groups, etc.  We would love to hang out with you for lunch, dinner or coffee.  Our schedule is not complete yet, so I hope that we will hear from you so that we can make a date.  I know that we will be in Kentucky and Florida, but as of now our plans are very flexible.

Keep watching for updates on our fundraising progress.  I will also add more information about what we are doing.  You can check out our blog for more information as well - www.sothatallmayhear.com 

Thank you and God bless you!  See you soon!

I cannot believe today is the day!  We are packed and ready to go.  Thanks again for your prayers and those who contributed to us. We were able to buy one flight ticket and Alona's visa on the money we raised.  If you would like to give towards the other flight ticket, you can give on here (youcaring) or send it to DOOR http://www.doorinternational.com/donate/north-american-missionaries/kathy-wright or http://www.doorinternational.com/assets/pdf/door_mail_in.pdf .  Thank you!  I hope we get a chance to meet....send me a message if you would like to set up a time to hear about what we are doing with the Deaf Bible translations.  God bless you!

We were able to buy our tickets yesterday.  We got a very good fair price and I am so pleased.  Thank you for your prayers.  With the money that was given here and the money sent into DOOR, we are only around $1000 short from paying off both tickets and the visa cost.  If you would like to help us pay off the tickets, please post your money here on youcaringor send it to DOOR and add a note for our plane tickets - by check - http://www.doorinternational.com/assets/pdf/door_mail_in.pdf  or by paypal - http://www.doorinternational.com/donate/north-american-missionaries/kathy-wright   

Thank you and God bless you.  I cannot believe we will be on our way home in 11 days! Excited!

In just 2 short weeks from today we will be on our way to America.  I cannot believe it!  I am excited to see my family, friends, and church families.  I am very thankful for each and every person who continues to pray for us and who has supported us over the years.  I hope we will get to see many people while we are home.  Have you booked your time with us?  We are still in need of money to buy our plane tickets.  I hope I can purchase the tickets by Tuesday.  We are asking God for a few more generous people to help us.  Are you one of them?  Thanks and God bless you!
