Kolton Yoder

It is with a sad heart that I'm updating to let you know little Kolton passed away this evening. Please be in prayer for his parents, siblings and extended family as they mourn the loss of their sweet boy. It is always difficult to know what to say when a loved one dies, but petitioning God on their behalf requires no special words. Please lift them up in the coming days, weeks and months.

Volunteer Needed

I need someone (ladies only, please) to come to our world headquarters (our house) and help me do some organizing for UJE. Peel off price tags, put items away...stuff like that. No more than 2 hours, probably. Please email me if you're interested.

Yoder Family

Our next family, the Yoder Family, is at Cincinnati Children's Hospital for their son, Kolton. He desperately needs to get on the transplant list for a new heart but is not yet well enough. Please visit their Caring Bridge site to see the little cutie.


We continue to work on the new website and have monthly board meetings. Everything takes more time than I think it will!! But in a good way. We're still here, working harder than ever, to make UJE the best it can be. If you have any suggestions, please let us know! We always look forward to hearing from you so please, drop us a line!

We've Been Busy!!!

I've been working like a busy bee! We're utilizing Squarespace for our website and it should be ready by the middle of July. One of our board members, Jim, is working on a logo design and I can't wait to see it! Yesterday, I finished the tax application packet and am waiting for Jason to finish up the bylaws. We're making lists of companies we want to contact for potential donations. How about Burt's Bees? And Bath and Body Works? I hope we can partner with some pretty cool companies/organizations to fill our care packages with ultra nice stuff! If there are products you love, please, let me know what they are! I'd love some ideas of companies to contact for good stuff.

We had another board meeting last night and are looking for at least 2 more members. We really prefer 5-8 to start out with. This gives us lots of perspectives--I like that!

This morning, I opened up UJE's checking account!!! Now you can write checks to Until Journey's End!!!!!! If you've been waiting to join the Ten Buck Club ($10/month for 12 months) now is the time!!! The account is open and waiting!!!! BTW, all monies recieved for the Ten Buck Club are to purchase gift cards and stamps to send in the care packages.

Thanks to the Darnold Family for sending some more care package supplies! It lights up my life when others are as excited about UJE as I am.

I'm off. Working like a crazy woman to get this website ready!!!

Where We Are

The next big step for UJE is applying for 501(c)(3) status. $300.

Along with that, we need a website. I'd like to utilize Squarespace. Do-it-yourself website/blog that has the potential to be pretty cool. $300/year.

We're also running low on care package items.

If you believe in what we're doing, please be praying that God would provide the money needed to move forward.
