Menekse here from Cheerfully Given.
We are doing a little crowdfunding campaign for Patrick and Maya Laurent. They've made a huge leap of faith this year and moved over to London with their three sweet children to serve Jesus at St Luke's Earls Court.
Unfortunately, when their belongings arrived a few weeks ago, their (very expensive) professional printer set on fire as soon as it was plugged in. This is an integral part of them running Quiet Boy Studio, and so they bought a new-to-them equivalent which arrived today. Unfortunately, this too has been damaged, and they are now unable to get their Etsy store back open!
Patrick is the artist behind Quiet Boy Studio, and Maya is his business manager. Being able to support their family through Quiet Boy Studio is extremely important to enable them to do mission work here in London without having to worry about finances all the time. We are in the run up to Christmas which is typically the busiest time of year for creatives, so it's vital that they are able to reopen their store as soon as possible!

We want to show them love and encouragement by raising a small contribution towards a new printer so that they are able to get their online shop back up and running.
If you could even donate a gift of £5 towards this, every little really will help! Everything raised here less Crowdfunder fees will go directly to their bank account so they can buy a new printer. If we overfund, which we pray we do, it will enable them to replace all their paper and packaging (which is a different size here in the UK).
