I am writing you to let you know my situation. I have about a thousand bucks left for living expenses and a gift from a donor is slow coming. I am scheduled to do a music camp on the rez in October, and I probably need 2 things. 1) expenses for the camp and 2) living expenses.
Just so you will know, here's what I have done in June and July:
Attended 6 major Lakota cultural events (Sundances, etc) in which my presence was honored by elders
Co-directed 1 Rodeo Camp were 100 Lakota family members and at risk youth attended
Helped direct 1 immersion class on Rosebud Reservation
preached and raised funds in 10 church services
performed 19 concerts which included 7 centers for elderly and disabled (at no cost yet)
As you can see, I've been busy. No pressure, but we "have not cause ask not" and I don't want to be absorbed by a FT job if the Lord wants me me to maintain a major presence among the Lakota. Couldn't have done it without you.
