Godwill is an ongoing yard sale ministry where funds are raised for women and children in poverty, locally and globally
This is the story of how it started
By donating new or gently used household items & treasures to the yard sale ministry.
It's Amazing how God can take our stuff and turn it into treasures for the Kingdom, like turning straw into gold

GodWill is an ongoing yard sale ministry that began as a means to an end to support my Mission trips. However, I soon realized it could do so much more & God began to grow it on a bigger scale & He began to show me some of the many people we could help. Women & children in poverty locally & abroad. We began having bigger & bigger yard sales & the money began paying for shoes for many in villages, Chickens for women to sell eggs in Kampala, a little boys surgery, college tuition, groceries for the needy, it's limitless! Plus it’s enabled me to put together mission teams to Uganda & other places where I am able to share my faith. It’s truly a blessing to build this ministry & a joy knowing God will continue to grow it. So many can be served & blessed.
GodWill at Work
My 1st Mission trip was to Uganda in 2011 w/ a local Doctor and several nurses. We set up medical clinics in remote areas & helped many. It was there God opened my eyes & heart to women and children in poverty like I’d never seen. I came home and prayed to God asking “What can I do?” This is how GodWill came to be. Since that 1st trip I have gone several times & God continues to drive my desires not only of the needs in Africa & around the globe but locally as well. This is an on-going Yard Sale Ministry and donations are always accepted. The biggest sale of the year will always be the first Saturday in May in Ferndale on 3rd Ave. at the Ferndale Grain parking garage. The details will be on the Ferndale Community Yard Sale map. This is a huge undertaking, but its Gods thing so I know the proceeds will bless many. I’m just honored & grateful to be a part of it.
