Taking into account the amount raised at the showing and pledges made, the exhibit raised an estimated total of $2,085 in 4 days for our work in Sudan. This includes individuals who stated they would be purchasing tickets to our next event, sponsoring our next event, fundraising, or giving monthly.

We would like to thank the congregation at Redeemer for donating us their beautiful space for 4 days. Thank you! And a big thanks to the volunteers who helped us setup and breakdown the exhibit! Here's a few photos from the showing:
